Probably Not. I prefer mags with a better follower.

No, they may be great mags but at that price it makes me wonder. You really can't tell anything about them by looking at a picture.

Probably not. You see very similar looking mags at gun shows for $10. I don't buy them at that price.

Are you a gambler? I had bought some non branded magazines for a mini-14 at a great price but had to modify them slightly to work properly. But in the end I was happy as I usually tinker with everything anyway!

:no: Not me.

I don't even like the standard mag Kimber sold the gun with. I have one Kimpro (7 rd) and two Wilson Combat (8 rd). I really like them.

I think you guys are right, they were probably made in china I sent the seller an email asking what make they were ( no reply yet) .

So i aired on the safe side and bought a couple of Wilson combats .

Three for 50 dollars is about $16.00 each plus any shipping, which to me is not a good deal for an unknown product. IMO

They look very much like AMT .45 mags.
