    I found 5 of these at a good look rice while shopping in TN. I have a good forum source that states they are most likely chinese.

    On that note I can say they are blued which is only typical of Taiwanese and aftermarket. It by as 11 spot welds that are smallish on the front. 5 total spot welds on the rear with zero markings. Follower is metal and all parts are steel.

    Can anyone confirm be ch ore I lo ist these in the classifieds?

    Look like chinese or maybe South Korean commercial mags. USGI should be parked and have a manufacturer stamp on the body of the mag on the back about an inch up from the floor plate.

    It's possible that they might be Taiwanese T57 mags, as they had a blued finish.

    I compared them to some pics of Taiwanese mags and they look similar but have different spot welds on the front.

    But if anyone has mags for comparison please post some pics.
