Anyone have any info on Colt 30 rd magazines marked with part number 62667 and dark green follower marked 62665A. I have been told they are Colt mfg in 1968. Others say Okay mfg but I cannot find any Okay mfg mark inside magazine and was told all Okay mfg for Colt have markings inside magazine. Did Colt ever make their own magazines at any time??

These are early Colt manufactured mags, pre mass production 30 rounders.


[2-2-1-1] Early Colt 30-round Mags
––––––––-
Army and late Air Force contract mags. The first Colt 30-round mags had dark green, hard-plastic followers with Colt part number 62665A stamped in white on the follower and part number 62667 stamped on the side of the body. These followers did *not* have the lengthened front "anti-tilt" leg that later green followers have. These mags are rare and collectable, though considered unreliable by some. Made from 1967-1969. Floorplates stamped:

(Pony) COLT AR-15
CAL. 5.56 MM
COLT'S PT. F.A. MFG. CO. INC.
HARTFORD, CONN. U.S.A

There's a couple of them for sale over on GB. Obligatory "Not Mine".

Kind of steep for a couple old 30 rounders. They are not that rare yet in my opinion.

I believe that UI made all the early Colt mags.

Okay made the later ones.

These mags are just tlike the others with updated followers, I don't think I'd shoot with nice original ones though.

I picked one up at a gun show in Denver the last weekend in August, paid about $40 for it.
