I bought them from CDNN as "South African AR-15 9mm mags."

Yup. They are great mags. I have a few. Some are "tight" while others were "way loose". I solved the loose ones by putting some metal tape (not duct tape) on them to take up the slack. Looking at them, that is where I got the idea of using Sten's in the Colt system...since the South Africans and Sten mags look so close a like.

I'm not quite sure where to find more of those mags. Once in a while some pop up in EE and on the auction sites. A few times, some people post ventors (web sites) that have them. But as with any "mag", the quality varies. As I said, some I ordered were "loose" and required shimming. Good enough for play mags I would say. My Colt mag block mags are in a drawer right now. I think I have 6 of the SA mags, and a few of the Uzi type. And a few other kinds for the Colt block.

Underdog I'll be putting 5 of these (along with some other stuff) up for sale on the EE this weekend. Shoot me an e-mail if you want first dibs or they should be up sometime Saturday. Steve
