Ok, came across some Colt mags today. These are Gov Surplus mags. But am wanting to make sure they are legal.

There are absolutely NO dates or any sort of "restricted" markings.


The ONLY markings on these mags is stamped on the side. If I recall correctly it is stamped as follows (this is off memory) 66267. Or something of that nature.


The funny thing about that marking, is that it is also marked on the top of the green follower.


On top of all of that, the green follower isn't the light green color as usually seen. But a very dark green color which I haven't seen before.


So.......(long drum roll to same old boring question awaiting same old boring answer.....)



.......Are these Colt mags legal. And if so, how much are they worth (60%-80% condition)?


Anything more for the dark green followers?

Why do you think they're Colt's magazines? The floor plates are interchangeable. Unmarked magazine bodys are unrestricted. -- Chuck

Sounds legit to me... [url]http://magfaq.tripod.com/mags1.htm#2p[/url] [2-2-1-1] Early Colt 30-round Mags --------- Army and late Air Force contract mags. The first Colt 30-round mags had dark green, hard-plastic followers with Colt part number 62665A stamped in white on the follower and part number 62667 stamped on the side of the body. These followers did *not* have the lengthened front "anti-tilt" leg that later green followers have. These mags are rare and collectable, though considered unreliable by some. Made from 1967-1969. Floorplates stamped:

The numbers stamped on the body (62667) proves this is a Colt magazine.

They are preban mags. As computer guy stated, they are early Colt 30rd mags with the dark green followers. These were the only numbered Colt 30rd mags made, and are somewhat rare. Mark
