I have found a former MSAR dealer who no longer has rifles in stock and doesn't plan to get any more but has what he terms "a bunch" of MSAR magazines. I asked him if he would be willing to sell me the mags at a discount (he has them marked at $39 for 30-rounders and $45 for 42-rounders). He said he might, and asked what I would offer for them.

I have an AUG A3, and I am assuming that there's no problem using the MSAR magazines (the ones I looked at seemed identical to the Steyrs; it was only when I noticed the MSAR name that I realized they were clone mags).

Are the MSAR mags as good as real Steyr mags? What should I offer this guy for the mags? Best local price for genuine Steyr mags seems to be $45 for 30-rounders.

Thanks,
Whisper

You had better verify that - as I recall MSAR made AUG mags, STG556 mags, and a limited run of AR-15 mags (for their E4 stocks that accept them). If they do work for your rifle, they should be good to go - my old MSAR mags were pretty bombproof and looked great.

The original 556 mags were good to go, the original run of the E4 mags had issues. Never had any problems with my 556 mags either, fed everything, and were tough.

I went back and checked today; these were STG556 mags and would not work in the AUG. So I guess I will pay the price for real Steyr mags.

Cheers,
