I just baught some 20 rnd mags and I would like to know the authenticity of one. It appears to be an early airforce/army mag. It has a silver floorplate. Its marked like the normal colt .223 mags but the markings look a tad bigger. Just wondering about this mag.

I am aware of the mag faq and I already checked it. I am just wondering if some mags were created with silver floorplates. I am wondering if someone stripped it?

I have had several with the black paint [b]worn[/b] off the bottom. So is it looking stripped or worn off?

Its all completely gone. It looks like it was made that way. It may have been stripped but I was just wondering if anyone made them like this.

Quite a few were made like that, I used to own several actually. I also have a floor plate from a 30 (THIRTY) round magazine that is silver and stamped Colt with Cal. .223 (not 5.56). That you don't see everyday!!! They were a special run of mags for a certain Colt rifles (I cannot remember which rifles they were made for though).
