Both the HOT LIPS and the STEEL LIPS magazines are good quality magazines.

Both require a 'break-in' period though. I've found that they take around 200 to 300 rounds through them to get them to work perfectly.

Once they are broken in, you should not have any problems with them.

They are very durable, and should last you thousands, if not tens of thousands of rounds.

The HOT LIPS will wear out more quickly than the STEEL LIPS though due to the plastic feed lips. The plastic will deform after a time making the magazine useless. I've already gone through two HOT LIPS magazines that I just completely wore out.

The STEEL LIPS should not ever wear out as the lips are made of stainless steel. The STEEL LIPS seem to work a bit better than the HOT LIPS as well.

I recommend the STEEL LIPS as they are more durable. They cost a bit more, but it is worth it I think!

Good Shooting!
