Metal vs Plastic gun mags? Which is better for your rifle or handgun? The biggest argument in favor of plastic vs metal is that a polymer ar mag can take a harder drop without losing its shape. But once it's cracked or broken, it's totally unusable. In contrast, an aluminum gun magazine will deform easier but it's possible to bend it back into shape.
