Junk. Springs are weak and mag bodies are soft. Find some old 20rnd GI parts kits and convert them to 10rnd.

Stick with CMI (current USGI) magazines; 44mag.com has them...

yes, CMI/SA are the best ones you can buy unless you can get your hands on some used GI. you'll see some of these old timers sellin' 'em at the gun shows for $25-40. they'll be green and beat, but those things are golden.

Another +1 for Checkmate. They make the mags for Springfield.

Hey, wait a minute. None of the mags linked in this thread will work in an M1A1. :p

I don't understand why people make that mistake of putting the extra "1" at the end all the time. Are they trying to relate a rifle to a tank?! :P seriously tho my brother just did that yesterday when we shot my rifle together. Then proceeded to tell me my socom 16 was illegal. I had to break it down barny style for him :P
