I have two Lancers, a five rd and a 20 rd. When full, neither will seat fully and lock in to either of my rifles. Anyone else get this problem?

Used 20-round P-Mag & Lancer Mag today, both were good to go.

LGS orders my Lancers for $12ea., I like supporting them & it's a pretty good price. Have some OD coming in Monday.

I have 30 and 20 round lancers and they seem to be rock solid. As good or better than PMAGs.

X 7 on Lancers. Botach usually has the best price and even better if you buy a dozen. $10 each for 20 round clear.

I use 20-round PMAGs when I'm shooting .223 and then I switch to a 10-round PMAG when I shoot 300 BLK. For some reason, I really have to slam the 10-rounder home to get it to seat. Never had that problem with 20- or 30-round PMAGs with any of my rifles.

...Lancer L5 and old aluminum Colt's have been the most reliable for me to date.

I also like Lancers. I like them better that PMags.

I always run my Lancers full. I've never had a problem with seating or locking.

I use nothing but Lancers anymore. Standard 5.56 mags work perfect for all of my jacketed reloads....supers and subs.

- 208 A-Max Hornady
- 208 HPBT Hornady
- 125 SMK Sierra
- 125 TNT Speer
- 125 SST Hornady

For my cast bullet 225 grain sub loads, the Lancer 7.62x40 mag works perfectly. The standard 5.56 mags won't let me stack my cast bullets as deep. Maybe 13-15 rounds in a 20 round mag before minor "bindage" happens. Th 7.62x40 mag they made exclusively for Wilson Combat give the extra room need for the "THICKER" cast subs.
