Post M14 Magazine ID Diagram

Mods, can we get a sticky thread, please?

First, big THANK YOU to sailor45 for taking my chicken scratch sketches and turning them into works of art.

You have permission to save, copy and print these images for PERSONAL USE only. These are not for resale. These will be made part of the M14 Rifle Library CD and the next edition of M14 Rifle History and Development.

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.

Here you go, M14 fans:

I can't read them. They are too small.

HABU, no problem.

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.

Ok, I just snagged two M14 mags and I was wondering if anyone has seen this make before. They seem solid and with a good finish on them. Not banged up, they look new.

JWB, thanks. Apparently, Lulu Press is preventing hot linking to its URL. Just type in Lulu Press into your search browser. It will return the web site. Go the web site and search for the guide by title.

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!
