Has anyone tried the 30 rd M1 carbine mags that Brownells sell?

Nobody has tried them?

I'd ask on the CMP Forum.

IF they don't work, Brownells will take them back. They are good about things like that.

Buy one and let us know - don't you have a nearby gun shop you could get one at so if it did not work you could return it ?

Yes, I've tried them. I bought three and they all worked flawlessly. I have six USGI 30 round mags, and the ones Brownell's sells are definitely aftermarket (the metal is not as thick, they aren't as heavy and solid as the USGI mags); but they are great mags for the range or for plinking. Like I said, no problems with feeding, they've all run 100%. Good stuff--especially if you get a C&R discount!

I really wish CProducts would make a Carbine mag! It can't be that tough to do and the Gov't made 6 million of the friggen things-carbines- not to mention the various aftermarkets......The mags have gotten stupid expensive for 60 year old surplus!

They're working on it. . .

I had suggested it quite awhile ago in an email to them. I am glad to see that they are going to do this.

It really is outrageous that "good" condition 15 round carbine mags are $20 apiece now. Magazines made of modern materials, newly manufactured would be worth that but for a "shooter" paying that for 60 year old milsurp stinks.

Wonder what they will make-15's, 20's, 30's? Really don't care as long as they are reasonably priced.

I have 5 Carbines and one Mini-14. I need some decent mags at a fair price.
