Sportsmansguide Hi Power mags?

Anyone know for sure that these are actually made in Portugal and not India?

That image looks like the ones I got from MidwayUSA and I cannot strongly enough warn you away from those. The follower was rough as sand paper and they didn't really fit in my MKIII at all. I'm not even wasting ammo to determine reliability.

Personally I would wait until Mec-Gar ones are available again.

Hah....Portugal! Where do they come up with this crap???
Those are 111% Indian HP mags. I have 2 or 3 and they are good range mags, but that's it. I agree, if you want good HP mags hunt down some Mecgars.

Nailed it.
Sportsmans Warehouse has been selling these under severl different descriptions over the last ten years......sometimes calling them "military contract mags" or "Asian military mags", etc.

Pass on them and get a MecGar

Lol! Another reason to not buy ANYTHING from Sportmans' Guide.

Like I needed another.
