Hey Guys, do any of you own or know who makes an AR mag that has aluminum construction but painted black? It has NO markings on it whatsoever. Is this a USA mag? A guy at the range sold me this 30rd black mag and a 20rd mag for $25. I haven't had a chance to test either but will later today. I'm curious who made this "black" mag. Thanks. PS - it also is a little longer than the normal GI mags I have.....

With no markings, it could be a USA mag or maybe WESTERN. Although USA and WESTERN are steel, I believe.

USA made aluminum mags. they sucked. i saw one were the feed lips were not at the same level.

Its a USA, confirmed w/the shop. I'm not sure if it works though - at the range I had a bunch of Failure to feeds with all my GI mags. So I'm not sure... I have a feeling its the Olympic ss109 ammo I used today that messed everything up. Next week I'll try some new ammo and see if the mag works out...

It might be the ammo if all your mags didnt work.

Yeah all mags failed to feed, etc... I think its this junk Olympic. Do not buy it - it will ruin your rifle!
