If these are the blued steel abominations with plastic followers from the 90s, do yourself a favor and smash them with a hammer before putting them in the trash! My father and I made the mistake of buying a bunch of these during the AWB - they were cheap and GI magazines were over $50/ea - and several of them didn't even have the hole punched for the front mag catch! JUNK!

No, he's cannibalizing them. You know, the mag bodies don't fit, the follower is junk, so he'll salvage all the rest.......

If I were more "hard up." I might take a file to the rear lug that is preventing the mag from locking in. You know......file and fit. Then, the spring and the floor plate. OK, Ok, ok.....maybe they'll do as replacement parts.

Folks....as it has been said many time before. Just buy genuine GI magazines.

Aloha, Mark
