Default Springfield M1A magazines

Are Springfield M1A's particular on magazines? Do aftermarkets feed as good as SA magazines do?

I've bought a bunch of USGI mags at local gun shows for about $25 ea no sales tax. So far no bad ones.

I just bought a couple of springfield 20 rd ones for 43 each, but hoping to get 3 more at a better deal.

I've, oh about 20, checkmates and several USGI and can't tell the difference in fit and finish. Bought some Taiwanese (blued) mags, that were their issue mags, a few year back and they're good too.

As I think someone said before, Springfield's mags are made by Checkmate.

P.s. Checkmates, 1911 mags are top notch too.

Wait for them to go on sale at Brownells and during one of their $10 off $100 w/free shipping. Currently 5 for $119.99 and free shipping over $49, but no $10 off deal ATM.

I've used Checkmate mags with zero issues and M14 Mags from Taiwan from keepshooting without any problems.

Another vote for Checkmate. I have around ten or so chekmates and around six of the Springfield. All work perfect. Only difference is the checkmates are less expensive.

Got a couple used with no markings at all from Numrich. So far no problems. The SAI takes em all. At least mine does.
