I haven't had issues with the brand of magazine but I definitely don't like using the short 5 round mags, they are so short that they are difficult to remove. Noexpert has posted a nice solution to the problem but since I have enough 10 and 20 round mags I'll just stick with using them unless I need the 5 round mags for hunting.
I have two 20rd USGI and a factory SAI 10rd that I currently use. All work great but I mostly use the 10rd as I never load more than 5 at a time. I would imagine the 5rd mags are difficult to access easily. CMI makes great mags by the way.
