Its a Chartered Industries Singapore magazine and I have yet to find any reviews about it. Someone has to have some pics and comments about it. Rguns is selling them dirt cheap.

Additional info: Chartered Industries is a defense contractor in Singapre that makes ammunition and small arms, like Norinco in China. In 1970 Chartered Industries began licensed production of the M16 assault rifle. More than 80,000 M16s were manufactured for the army between 1970 and 1979. In 1976 Chartered Industries purchased the rights to the SAR-80 assault rifle from Britain's Sterling Armament Company. Engineers at Chartered Industries worked with a team of weapons experts at the Armed Forces Training Institute to improve the Sterling design. An estimated 100,000 indigenously designed SAR-80s were produced between 1980 and 1989 for domestic use and for export.

Yes I have used some of thoes mags in my SP1 and they dont feed properly even after changing the springs and followers. I think all non aluminum mags are junk . The steel is thinner than the aluminum and so either the ammo doesnt fit properly or they dont fit correctly in the gun.

Not on the ones I have the brit and singapore grey mags are identical and the same thickness as the aluminum.
