I could have made these more complicated but I don't want to give away all the anti-counterfeiting measures. These diagrams should weed out all the fakes out in the market. The twenty round function test is the do-or-die acid test at the end of the day.
Try this, go to www.imageseek.com/m1a then click on Photo Gallery then click on The M14 Close Up. Then click on each of the three pages one at a time. When you see the big version of the photo, single right click with your mouse button. Click on Save As then save the image to your computer.
dogtag, those are 2005 USGI contract M14 magazines made by Check-Mate Industries.
Thanks Different, I wasn't sure of the quality...they feel and look solid like I said. The vendor said they are good to very good quality. I KNEW I should have got two more...back to Reno ...next year!

Cheaper Than Dirt is selling magazines marked with a "W" (Westinghouse Electric), GI Mags, or alledgedly GE Mags. I have some and they appear to be GI as Cheaper Than Dirt implies. That is, fit and function are very good. Spotwelds up the spine are perfectly aligned/spaced and of the proper number (I haven't fired yet).
Does anyone know for certain what these magazines are? Price, Jan 2012 is $17.95; which is 10-15 bucks less than I would have expected!
