30 round M-14 magazine?

Is there a decent 30 round magazine made for the M-14/M1-A? I had one bought from a long time ago that was made with very thin metal and flexed whenever loaded. I have my doubts as to whether the thin feed lips would have stood up. But if there is, I might like to invest in a few, given the political climate of the country. I do have a very good conversion someone made from two regular magazines. the welding is excellent and the thing holds 36 rounds and feeds relaibly. However, I don't want to trash perfctly good 20 round magazines and duplicating the flat weld on the example I have would be difficult.

Additionally, are the ISraeli made, IIRC, thermomold magazines any good? Right now I have a mixture of GI, and a few aftermarket made magazines, and the 36 rounder, but with a recent purchase of a second M1-A I don;t now have enough.

I'd be happy with the 25-rounders or even the standard and well-proven 20s. After that, rotary is the way to go. Then you're looking at 50+.

Saw 30 rounders at the local gun show yesterday but were the poorest quality I've ever seen. No markings on them at all.

Who makes the 25 rounders? That would be fine if they are decent!
