After the ban expired in 2004 I bought a hundred G3 (Steel - NIW) for a $100 plus $20 shipping. The aluminum ones (NIW) I bought for 50 cents each with $20 shipping. A lot of the aluminum ones were HK marked commercial and late dated in the 70's.This is just a thought. What about g3/ptr91 magazines. Could you think about making them. Because surplus is going to run out sooner or later. Plus the way PTR and Century keep selling these rifles there just might be a demand for reliable US made 20 and 25 rounds. What say you?.
I'd like to take a quick moment to introduce myself (I'm sure some of you may have dealt with me in the past 3 years). My name is Brandon and I handle the Commercial Sales division at Check-Mate Industries. I'm here to answer any questions you may have on our mags or M14 mags in general. We are incredibly appreciative of the support from the M14 community over the years and look forward to continuing returning the favor. If you place an order with us, please email me or shoot me a message so I can make sure your order gets something extra. A few requests below to keep things running smoothly.
*I can't confirm or deny exactly which manufacturers we make magazines for but I can definitely point you in the right direction
*If there's a problem with our magazines PLEASE get in contact with us! We will make sure you get a magazine that works for your rifle.
*To avoid clogging the thread, please email me for questions regarding orders and order status.
*Let us hear your ideas! We have weekly R&D meetings focused on improving and providing the best M14 magazine on the market.
Beat me to it Kurt, I was going to say the same thing, 10 round mag in 20 round configuration style magazine for that correct M14 look for those states with magazine restriction, those would do well IMO.Two M14 products that would be nice:
A permanently blocked 10/20 magazine that can still be taken apart for cleaning, like many full size pistol mags.
A TRW marked magazine, so folks can stop looking for something that doesn't exist. RNGR2
Good point. Well Heck..I might as well mention FAL mags. NOBODY makes a steel FAL mag that is worth a hoot! I worked on new DSA mags and now that work most of the time!! I tried my M1A mags but they don't fit???Yes welcome to the Forum and thank you for the fine M14 magazines that you all make, they are outstanding. If you are taking suggestions for new magazines to make, I could really use a few 10 round magazines for my Browning 1903 so I can shoot it with the shoulder stock. It would be really nice to have a manufacture make HK 93 magazines in the US as well. Surely you all could make them as well as HK, sell them cheaper then HK and still make money.
Nice seeing you here on the forum Brandon and this brings up a question. Sometime ago (probably early last winter) I went on your site and signed up for the military discount program. Now being retired I frequently don't expect to be accorded a military discount but your site asked for a copy of my retired ID which I then emailed/forwarded to your people. I waited and I may even have put in one of your contact forms on the site to inquire as to the status but I never received so much as a peep back from Checkmate Industries. I suppose its possible that the program was discontinued but a return email would have been nice. So instead of doing business directly I have since purchased around a dozen 20rd mags from .44mag.com. - RHH
Thanks for the warm welcome. As a gun guy first and foremost, I'm glad I can reach out to you folks. Please don't hesitate to contact me if there's anything you need!Welcome from southern Oregon. I can't say enough about how helpful it is for a company like yours to engage with us consumers. Greatly appreciated.
Right now (A/O 8/13) we're running about 1 week lead time. Give me a call or email before you place your order and i'll make sure you get taken care ofExcellent products and welcome to the team. I went to the website, listed above by a member, and took a look at the M1a offering. Very extensive and wonderful pricing but everything was marked EXTENDED LEAD TIME ITEM. I’m in NO hurry but what could we expect?
Riveted magazines are tough because with a drill they can be knocked out in a matter of seconds. The law requires something permanent, which we have experimented with but none of the prototypes have been "user serviceable" after being limited to 10 rounds. We are actively working on a solution that can still be taken apart and cleaned.How about "rivited" 10/20 magazines with
available spring kits......If for no other reason
it might give the Ma. AG a stroke.
