I have 7 of these, they're very solid and I haven't had any issues with their functionality. The blueing is nice, but the cuts are a bit sloppy, especially with sharp edges and burs around the feed lips and spine. I have little cuts all over my fingers from playing with these, but you can fix that with a file/sandpaper, or just wear gloves.

The lockup is definitely on the tight side, which I actually prefer since I can file the rear lug down to make it perfect for my particular rifle. only takes a couple minutes per mag to get them smooth and tight

I need more time shooting them to make a final decision, but I am not sold on the bolt hold open feature. The bolt locks back, but as soon as you remove the magazine it snaps back forward. This makes removing the empty mag harder, since it has the pressure of the bolt pressing it forward. Also, I'll probably get used to it but the bolt flying home Everytime I remove the mag is kind of annoying to me.

The real issue though is that after you remove the mag and load a new one, you still have to charge the rifle just like on a standard magazine. This negates at least 50% of the point of them, since if anything it actually is a bit HARDER to reload compared to a standard surplus mag.

It does give you a visual and tacticle indication when you are empty instead of getting a click on an empty chamber, so that is nice though. One potential downside to this is if you have other non BHO mags, it can mess up your training if you're used to the bolt hold open and then shoot a regular mag and think you aren't empty since you're used to these ones. Whether or not that matters to you is up to you.

I have a Yugo AK with a safety switch that can lock the bolt back, so I thought "hm, what if i flip the safety up when I go empty, change the mag, then flip the safety down to put it in battery". If this worked I would like these mags a lot more, but frustratingly the follower does not hold the bolt all the way back, and it does not line up for this to work.

All that being said, they are EXCELLENT value though, and definitely would recommend you picking some up regardless at this price. I haven't tried every kind of mag so correct me if I'm missing something but I think these are the best mags for your money besides surplus.

What red dots do you use? Seems like $100 is as cheap as you can possibly go without being in Walmart airsoft range toy only territory.
