For you shooters out there, unless your proficient with hammer, files, and pliers, don't spend your money on Pro Mag 30 round magazines. Rather than sending them back, I spent about an hour with the above mentioned tools correcting the area where the shells need to pass through, widening with the file, bending with the pliers and hammering the mag to the proper shape. They only cost $16.00 each so I had nothing to lose. Ouch

Pro Mags for anything have been known to be problematic.

ProMags are pretty much garbage for any mag they produce. I have yet to hear anyone say anything nice about ProMag. As a new M1 Carbine owner, ProMag would be about last on my list of mag vendors to buy eitherh a 30 or 15 round mag.
