Check-Mate Magazines

Hello everyone! Let me introduce myself, my name is Jackie and I work for Check-Mate Industries doing Business Development. It was agreed upon, that the best way to improve all of our product line is to listen to what the men and women who use our magazines everyday have to say. I have joined a number of other forums, answering any questions I can. So please take this opportunity to let us know what you think, and would like to see from us in the future? The information you give will only help us to make a better magazine for you.
I will be happy to answer any questions I can, however please understand I am only one person and I will not be able to respond to everything everyday.

Checkmates are great mags!


As you no doubt know, unmarked Checkmate mag bodies have been used in widespread fraud. The unmarked Checkmate bodies have been falsely marked with known USGI markings.

Checkmate has been a partner in this fraud. Unwittingly I'm sure, but, a partner nonetheless. Simply by supplying 'blank' mags to the fake mag vendors.

I would like to see all Checkmate mags produced with a CMI (or something similar) in order to foil the mag fraudsters.

The benefit to Checkmate will include associating the CMI marking with the top quality product that everyone knows they will have when using a CMI marked mag.

Personally, I believe that Checkmate has been missing out on the well earned benefit of name recognition because so many Checkmate mags have been produced without the CMI mark.

Oswald2001- you are absolutely correct, in the past we have supplied a number of M14 magazines without any markings. To alleviate this problem… all current and future production of our M14 mags will have C.M.I stampings. The only exception to this will be at the request of our customers (who we are the OEM suppliers for).

I have purchased some of your mags and the only thing I can recommend to improve them is a better finish.

I purchased some of the USGI mags that Armalite was selling and theirs seem to have been refinished. Their parkerized finished was deep in color and very evenly done.

The finish on the CMI mags that I have is light in places dark in others smooth in areas coarse in others.

The only thing I can think of, to improve an already excellent product, is to install chrome-silicone springs.

How about allowing the purchase of a somewhat smaller number of magazines at one time.

I understand not wanting to get involved in singles and doubles, but how about ten at a time.

I just purchased 10 CMI mags and the "finish" is even on all of them. I'm satisfied with them. You can purchase them in any number you want, you just pay the shipping on 4 or less.

I guess I should add that the shipping on 4 or less was at the Mag 44 site.

Flood the market with mags! That way when the Demorats get another so called and totally useless AW ban passed there will so many pre-ban mags out there that the prices won't go through the roof.

[semiauto] "Flood the market with mags! That way when the Demorats get another so called and totally useless AW ban passed there will so many pre-ban mags out there that the prices won't go through the roof."

I've always been quick to point out that because liberals act purely on emotion and hysteria, rather than common sense, good science, empirical evidence and logic, the results of their schemes in practice is almost always at odds with the intended purpose of their agenda.

Take for example the former AWB. In anticipation of that Ban, thousands of semi-auto's (of the variety that would fall under the ban) were imported and manufactured, thousands of high capacity magazines were imported and manufactured and were all in place at the time the Ban became law. So thousands more of these guns and magazines were sold because of the Law than if there had been no law implemented. It's like the KTW bullet fraud by the left back in the 80's, in an attempt to ban ammunition. With the media's help they dubbed it "cop-killer bullet" and gave it much publicity. No policeman had actually been killed with one of these teflon hardened bullets, they were expensive and were relatively unheard of until then. They were developed by a couple of deputies and a county coroner for police work. The first letter of their last names providing the KTW acronym. Some police officers were subsequently shot in the head by criminals who had learned from the publicity that police were wearing protective vests. Ain't liberalism great?

As a testiment to the truth of the fact that the availability of firearms doesn't increase our crime rate, with the great influx of weapons caused by the Law, the crime rate has continually been dropping through the years. Why? The republicans took control of congress in the election just two months after the AWB went into effect and moved to direct the government effort and resources at criminals instead of innocent citizens. Also nearly 40 states have passed CCW laws and each of those states has dramatically reduced their crime rates as a result. As criminologist John Lott found in his comprehensive study, where guns are most prevalent, crime is lowest. Wherever guncontrol was increased 1%, crime increased 3%. An ancillary finding was that kids who grew up with guns in the house were not only less likely to become involved in crime, but also less likely to become involved with drugs. The reason being that those families tended to be closer knit and did things together as a family such as hunting and shooting.

Great product! I spent hundreds of dollars on defective mags before I finally found the CMI mags on .44 mag.com. I have 20 of them and am very pleased.
