Who has the best price/availability on .223 mags for the Galil?

www.cdnninvestments.com has 12 rd .223 mags for 9.99 and 50 rd .223 for 29.99. They are good to deal with. I have never had a problem with cdnn.

www.botac.com has 20 and 35 rd .223 mags for 19.99.
They are sometimes difficult to deal with. I haven't had any significant problems but I have had problems. Many people have really had trouble with them. Best things is to call them to verify what they have in stock.
Hope this helps.

DSA has arsenal refinished mags. If you buy 20, they are $20 each.

Try Vector, they have 50s and the 30 rnd orlite. I bought sevral from them at the last creek and they work great.

Are the orlites polymer or steel?

Orlite is some kind of plastic.

I have several and like them.

They are polymer and I believe they have steel reinforcements in the fee lip areas, kind of like the orlite M-16 mags. I have run the piss out a couple and they work great. They stand up to abuse well.

Checked SGN today. Ohio Ordnance Works has the 40 round Galil .223 mags at five for $100 total. Another company that's good to deal with.

Orlite Galil mags have the following advantages over steel:
They will not dent. A blow hard enough to damage an Orlite will damage a steel mag beyond repair. Steel mags are very succeptible to dents on the sides.
They are lighter. Individually it makes no difference, but carry 8-12 and you can feel it.
They will not rust. When you sweat on them a lot or work in the water this can be a big deal.
They are quieter.
They are not prone to losing rounds while in your web gear, as steel will.

They have the following disadvantages:
They are slightly longer and thicker at the base than steel. This makes a difference in some web gear.

I use them almost exclusivley, and have for several years. They are just as reliable and durable as steel.

The Galil Orlites are great, unlike the AR15 ones. I bought some severly used ones that look like trash but they still work 100%. I would choose them over steel any day.
