Im about 90% sure they are Valmet m78 mags. Im not sure if they are factory or aftermarket though.

Small photos, but... The short one looks like a M88 (Hunter) magazine. But I owned a .243 M88, and would not know for sure about other Valmet models.

Hmmmm... I recall a second layer of sheet metal around the upper portion of the magazine... but these may be a variation. Everything else looks right.

Valmet .308 76 magazines. Fairly valuable, the dings are from the rounds being driven into the front of the magazine by recoil.

I'm mildly interested in them if the price is right. Contact me through PM if you wish to part with them.

(I run a shop that makes magazines so they will be put to good use).
