Looks like the ones I bought from schumacher.
They will usually feed ok, but I have had a couple of hangups with the last few cartridges.
In other words: useable when shooting from cover, dicey in the open.
With that said, I have bought several of them.

Buy one and give us your review?

I bought one for my SLR 106ur SBR and took it out this past weekend fully loaded, it worked just fine. I did however file < 1/16 off of the inside of the magazine where the bolt travels and picks up the next round as it was very tight and would not cycle smoothly. Now its all good:

And you think $100 for a .223/5.56 45 rounder is bad, try getting one for 5.45, see how much you pay then.....expect a $200+ price tag. All in all, IMO, $99 for a 45 rounder isnt bad at all.

Those are extreme examples, obviously gouge prices. In general AK mags are thankfully very cheap and I don't mind paying a little extra for Vepr gear but...Saiga .223's are only $20, standard AR mags run $10 to $20ea and Centerfires got 5.45 30rdrs for $17 so yes, IMHO...it IS expensive. Csspecs can manufacture a steel mag and sell em for under $50! I thought $40 for a poly 30 SGM Vepr 7.62x39 mag was a little high but acceptable...$100 for a straight, non drum mag seems on the high end to me.

For that mag it is a steal. Before they got them in you'd be extremely lucky to get one under $350-$400. The 5.45 version is $230+ depending on variation

Agreed. Back when you could find them, .223 vepr ten rounders cost $35. If these function as well, that's great.

I did hear that the feed lips have cracked off for some people, then requiring a bullet guide. If that is the norm though, better off with circle tens or beryls.

It is a real deal molot mag. These were 2-3x the price when/if they showed up before. Like the 5.45 molot mags, these are the cream of the crop. Id love a few, but can't muster the 100$

Not so much the feed lips as the integral bullet guide seems to crack off. Which is pretty unsat.... but it puts you in the same place as Circle 10 or Beryl mags which also don't have bullet guides.
