While polymer magazines do have their benefits and space age aesthetic, aluminum mags are not to be forgotten about. One of the benefits that aluminum has over polymer is that it does not swell or shatter in extremely high or low temperatures. The aluminum feed lips are also strong enough to withstand the pressure of a fully loaded magazine over long periods of time without bending or breaking.
The history of Okay Industries goes back to WWII where they helped manufacture millions of M1 Carbine magazines for the United States Military. Fast forward and they helped co-develop the 30-round M16 magazine and has been a preferred supplier of magazines to the U.S. government ever since. Now Okay Industries are making their widely popular AR-15 magazines available to the public with the SureFeed and SureFeed E2 designs.

I have owned AR15 type rifles for 20 years now and have used numerous brands of Magazines. Some worked well and others did not. I have always preferred GI mags over the plastic ones. I own numerous “very used” GI mags from Okay Industries and they have always performed flawlessly. I was thrilled to learn they are available to purchase new now. I recently purchase 3 of these latest editions and they perform flawless like their earlier versions. The new texture is great and the FDE color is perfect. I am ordering another one today and a couple of their 20RD magazines as I write this review.
What a great company ! We all know how good Okay mags are but Primary Arms steps up on service . Fast Shipping priced right and packaged properly . Thanks

Quality mags, well built, and the desert tan looks great
Beats the original
by Shawn -
I purchased 2 of these mags to use with a Radical Firearms AR15 pistol that I also purchased from Primary Arms. They work better than the magazine that came with the gun. The original one is hard to seat all the way and it hangs up when you hit the mag release and has to be pulled out. These from OKAY Industries work perfectly. They slide in smooth and drop out easy when loaded or empty. Great magazines.

I first ordered 3 mags in black which supposed to come with the anti tilt blue follower. When they arrived it came with a grey follower, not blue. I thought maybe I made a wrong order so I did not bother although there was a price difference. Then I ordered 3 more in coyote, and I made sure it had the anti tilt blue follower on the picture and on product description. When it came, it had the same grey follower. So I contacted PA, they admitted it was the wrong follower. I suggested to just drive over (I live in Cypress) and exchange the follower at their store. Instead I have to mail them back at my expense. I think I should have been sent the right follower for free because it was their mistake. The mags still work, but there's a reason they made the anti tilt blue followers, and I paid for those.
<br>Thank you for clearing that up per our conversation. Please let us know if we may help you wit anything else.

I have bought several different brands of mags lately. Every build different. So far these have been the best I have used. Fit great, lock in, drop free. I will be using these from now on.
Best Magazine Available
by Pvt. SNAFU
This is the standard magazine that was issued for the US military for decades, until replaced by the Magpul PMAGs.
<br>These are not the newest, fanciest magazines, but have been proven for decades, are cheaper, smaller, guaranteed to work in all AR15 lowers, and lighter weight too. You won't have to worry about any issues with these magazines or compatibility issues.
<br> Some AR15 lowers don't like PMAGs and some pouches don't work with PMAGs either. Okay Industries is the official manufacturer that has the US military contracts, so they are the real deal. These are the 'E2' version - they have a blue follower that is easier to see, as well as even more anti-tilt features. The magazine body is a tan color with little dots protruding out for a better grip.
<br>Don't pay $20 per magazine that might not work - get these for much cheaper and guaranteed to work!
Love these mags

Mags are great, love metal magazines in general but these are particularly nice, function very well and shipped out very fast
Best magazine anywhere.

These and the standard OKAY Surefeed are the only mags I use in my 5.56 AR15s. Why? The rounds I use in my .300 blackout will only feed reliably in .300 blk PMAGs. So to prevent any unfortunate mix up, the 5.56 ar's use only these aluminum OKAY surefeed (Black, gray or tan doesn't matter.) and the .300 use only plastic PMAGs. Makes it easy to keep it straight between the two calibers. 5.56 = ALUMINUM, .300 = Plastic.
<br>Between these and PMAGs or lancers, I prefer the OKAY surefeed mags.
<br>As far as the Surefeed, and Surefeed E2, the follower is on the other side and the E2 has bumps. They're both as good as the other, use them interchangeably
5.56 & 300
I was pleasantly surprised that this mags aren't only well built, nice colors in Desert Tan (more like Coyote) and FDE but the wall guide both works well with 5.56 NATO rounds and 300 blackout rounds (Only have the =<150 grains). Somehow Okay Mags figured out how to solved the lingering problem with the wall guide for the "Ogive" of 300 AAC and 5.56 NATO to work fluidly (or maybe did not really want to solve it). Haven't had a chance to test with subsonic rounds (still looking to find one, decent price of course). I installed Magpul rubber floor plate protector to minimize the damage when dropped. Ohh, lets not forget Primary Arms excellent service (ran out of good things to say about them).
