I never use them but I'm pretty sure CMP clips are made by Aggressive Engineering Corp and are the same as AEC 3 commercially made clips. AEC 3 clips are known to be problematic. I'll stick with my SA clips.

Are the clips sent with rifles not GI then? If so, I didn't know that. The one with my rifle this week appeared unmarked.

Default No problems

I bought 25 of them a couple of months ago and loaded all of them with the creedmore 150gr "M2" "ball" that CMP sells as well. No problems at all. Fired without any loading, feeding, firing, or ejecting issues. I will buy more clips and ammo from CMP.

The my work flawlessly for me in my three M1s and also for my friends that use them in their rifles. One thing to consider is that you must consciously make sure the extractor grooves of cartridges sit along the ridge on either side of the clip. Do not bottom cartridges against the back. USGI clips are more forgiving and seem to align the groove on their own.

Mine would get stuck in the gun after the last round. The ejector pin was actually going into the clip instead of sitting under it. I think the metal did not curve in far enough for it to sit properly. I bought a few off eBay and they have been flawless.
