Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

I got my order in.

I hope they are legit - a while back, there were a bunch of "NOS" M14 mags "in the wrapper" being imported from China that were of pretty poor quality.

Even if they are fakes, the price is right as long as they work - and I've ran some pretty sketchy (Triple K) 1911 mags with no problems.

Not that many years ago at the DCM store near Camp Perry you could buy NOS M-14 mags in DOD foil wraps for $5.00 apiece. Broken shell extractors for $2.00...I loaded up on those. I should have REALLY loaded up.

Got mine today, too. Looks like a 1911 magazine. Nothing special about it. Rollmarks on the baseplate are pretty weak - like it was almost missed by the tooling.

Interesting that the packaging is dated 2016.

They did ship quickly, that's for sure.

All of mine are dated 2017.... So some contractor is cranking these out...and now they are being sold off as surplus? Seems odd.

It was my mistake for not reading everything on the sale page. Every time I've bought surplus 1911 mags, there were 2 in a package. So, I figured I was getting 2 instead of 1 for $15. But, if you factor in shipping, then it really isn't a bad deal.

Except I can get Chip McKormick 8-round Shooting Star mags for about the same price. I've never had any problems with them.

Who is manufacturing these? I have no idea.

Might be good magazine, but not military. New military issue would have a NSN identification number on it.

Tried mine out earlier today. They functioned in the Remington 1911A1 and the SA 1911A1 perfectly. I was firing 230gr hardball. I have a Colt 1911A1 and an Rock Island & an Argentine model 1927 that I will try them in...when the weather is not to funky. I don't have nearly the 1911's I used to have....

They work in all of them ...I am good.

The same vendor is selling them for $12.50 now. I ordered and received a dozen more at that price.
