Anyone out there know if these are any good? CTD has them:


Other places are getting them in also.

I got a few from another vendor that claims "truly like the GIs," but haven't been able to get out with them yet. I've "heard" that they're pretty decent, and that the Koreans dont/usually wouldn't "mess around" with such things. ...the idea being that they've had GI Carbines for years and probably still have a pretty good store of them. I am hopeful. Haven't heard anything about the 30 rounders.

I bought two Korean mags for my G22 and they don't fit well at all way too tight. Not sure I would trust them for the M1

The ROK army has used M-1 carbines since 1950. They produce their own mags for those carbines. If the mags for sale by CTD are made by the same supplier, they should be good ones.

I've got 5 with about 1000 rounds through them total. Haven't had a problem yet. I'd only own them an GIs myself, and I don't even own any GI mags at the moment.

Note, they are PAINTED, they are not parkerized or blued. The paint comes off at the lips pretty quickly, but it doesn't affect function.
