10 Rd Magazines
 
I live in Va, & there is a good possibility I may have to get some 10 rd magazines for my carbine. Has any one recently bought any of these that function decently, & if you have, where did you get them?

I live in Virginia too. I have a 5 round carbine magazine that only says that it is made in the USA and I have not had any problem with it. I do not know the manufacturer.

I am also looking into replacing my bayonet lug barrel band with a type 1 or type 2 band. I will post a separate posting regarding that.

Whatever brands you buy, one important thing are the two factory " stamped bumps" on the back of the mags. When inserting, these are what ride through the mag catch and prevent the mags from falling out. If you look at USGI mags, they are nicely stamped and very pronounced. I bought some 10-rounders recently that had very shallow bumps, and all three would just drop out of the carbine while I was shooting. Not good range etiquette and pretty damn embarrassing. I enlarged the bumps with a tapered punch and they no longer drop out. Just something to look at while shopping for 10-rounders.

By chance were these the ProMags?

Shom, Id be lying if I said which brand they are. They aren't marked with a maker. I bought them as brand new, but out of the wrapper, and I beleive they were new when I got them. Lesson learned. I have a few lightly used USGI 15 rounders that I permanently converted to 10 rounds, to please my King, here in NY. Anyway, the carbine runs like a Swiss watch again with the neutered USGI mags.

10 seems to be the magic number. How long before they consider that too many? I have just been collecting good 5-rounders and not stopping at 10.

No magazine capacity limits here WV. But I have several 5 round mags that fit nice and clean and actually make shooting easier...especially from a bench. Which I do when initiating young shooters. Plus I’m not often in a fire fight so 5 is plenty. Just something to consider.
