Bought a blue line Glock 22 today from a police distributor and got some ectra mags. Asked about LEO AR mags. Dealer said he had some straight body 20rd ones made by DPMS. HEre is the description - anyone ever heard of these before?:

Moly coat and 5 weld spine just like commercial Colts in the 1980-90s.
Black Plastic follower>
Black floorplate of original design with engraved :
.223cal/5.56mm
NHMTG S/42
HARTFORD, CT

left mag body side:

MFG NHMTG
3-02 HARTFORD, CT

Right side has:

RESTRICTED MILITARY/
GOV'T/LAW ENFORCEMENT
/EXPORT USE ONLY

DEaler said it was DPMS, but no Panther, BEcker, etc. ANY ideas about this one guys?

I'm not overly knowledgable about LEO mags but my guess, if it's made in Hartford CT, it's manufactured by Okay industries. IIRC O-kay vended Colt's 20s. Anyone with more knowledge, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. I can't see multiple manufacturer's of mags operating out of the same town in CT. So, if they are cheaper than Colt LEO mags, it's cause you didn't notice a Prancing Pony on the floor plate. Sly

They are not DPMS. They are Okay Industries private label. Due to military contract obligations, they are no longer allowed to sell LE/Export hi caps under the OKay name. I got a couple cases for of 30's and 20's for an LE agency. ( Still have some left I think )The 30's had the cage code 33710; sound familiar, It's OKay Industries ; who also makes the Colt 30's

What does the NHMTG stand for? How does the LE agency FFL get them in bulk? Who do you order them from?

I think is is the acronym for New Haven ( CT ) Manufacturing. NHMTG
