I recently acquired a supposedly "NIW" 30rnd Adventure Line mag. It came in a clear plastic bag stapled at one end. Inside the bag was a white piece of paper with the following type:

1005-00-921-5004
MAGAZINE ASSEMBLY
30 RD 5.56 MM
1 EA
DAAA09-75-C-6142
A - 3/77

Is this genuine, and if so what is it's value?

About $25 currently. I've never heard of these having any significant collector value.

Is it a genuine mag, yes!

Is it a genuine NIW mag, NO!

On NIW mags, the writing is on the plastic.

Go on over to the FS section to see examples.

I stand corrected, but think that would be EASY to fake, especially if you used a staple.

I've seen spray-paint "refinished" mags offered for sale this way at Gunshows, sans the staple.

Plastic was very thin.

NIW Adventureline mags have the info printed on
the plastic wrapper. I have only seen Sanchez
and Okay magazines with the paper insert.
