No Doop Brother..... I was just thinking they were "just the norm....."

I ask again, are these common ????

Honestly...... What's the scoop on these mags......

Yes. Common. Universal Industries, I believe. The floor plates are what most of my 20's say.

I thought there was some Mag Faq at some time, somewhere, but things are always down or dead links lately.

I want to know also, what's that symbol on the sides? Are you saying the mag body is Universal Industries and the floor plates Colt? Are they all like this?

Thats right Universal Bodies with Colt floor plates.

[2-1-2] Colt
All Colt-marked magazines were actually made by a sub contracter, Universal Industries, a division of Okay Industries. GI-Contract Colt 20s had alloy followers and are marked with a "UI" stamp (for Universal Industries) on the front narrow wall of the magazine. Tilted on it's side, the "UI" becomes a "CH" (Colt, Hartford). The US Military switched to 30-round magazines in the early 1970s, and Colt-marked 20s made after the switch had black plastic followers. Anodizing is generally gray or silver in color.

Troy's Mag information...

I was just wondering if they were really common ???

Interesting. I have a drawer full of 20's, and some but not all of the Colt marked ones have the UI. Even more interesting, I have a few Simmonds marked mags that have the UI. They are old enough that they date before anyone cared, and the chances the baseplates got switched is just about nil.

Did Simmonds make tubes, or perhaps just assembled parts bought from others?

Looks to me like you may need to refinish a some of them with Perma-Slik G dry film lubricant.
