I just picked up ten N.I.W. mags from AMMOMAN.COM and these seem to be real nice USGI copies. Are these the Tiawanese mags made on US machines overseas???? I have a few that have markings look like markings I have seen on SKSs' and AKs' . The parkerizing was a dark satin finish. One however had a "U" mared on the lower backside (normal location for GI marks) and was very much like a USGI in the finish.
The real nature of this post is a couple questions . Can anyone comment on mags gotten from this vendor as far as function.
I tried a few mags in 2 of my M1A type rifles. The first is my Scout wich has less then 300rds fired, the mags fit kind of loose not to the point I think its a problem just more then a USGI. Then I tried itin a LRB i jut had assembled with all new USGI parts and I realy had to whack the mag to get it to lock up!!! Do they need fiting???
All in all I am happy with my purchase just had a few questions about them and this is sure the right place to ask.
Thanks Ray

Thanks for the link. I put this in the Firing line forum cause I wanted specific info on fitment and function in M1A rifles. I felt it was appropriate . I will have to rephrase my post next time to keep it where I first posted it....... Oh well. Thanks again Ray
