Are they reliable? Who made them?
I like the look of 15rds on the M14. Please advice.
Thanks,
Cal

If you order them from springfield it will be a 20rd mag with alittle wooden block on the spring to lower the capacity

There was a guy on NJ hometown who was doing custom work cutting down 20's, but I don't know if he is still doing it.

IMHO I'd love if someone would just ship replacement mag bodies in that size (It would likely require very little capital investment) as I think it would be a good compromise between 10 rounders lack of capacity and 20 rounders bulk.

They are available here:

They are made by CMI, the same folks who make the current 20 rd. USGI mags.

Springfield stopped blocking the mags and now sells 15 round mags that are shorter than 20's. The picture on their site still shows the twenty length but a friend of mine recently ordered some and they were shorter.

What? That somebody wants a magazine because they "like the way it looks" ?

I would humbly request a picture of one of these next to a 10 and 20 round magazine for confirmation.
