On the bottom plate it reads:

19200
ASSY 5508694
MFR 30745

They were wrapped in Mil Spec wrapping labeled:

Mil-B-117E Type III
Class E, Style 1
Seal Pak
Hawthorne, CA

Are these good mags?


Bought them at the Las Vegas gun show this weekend, the guy says they are USGI, was he lying? I tried Googling the above info and turned out nada.

I posed the same question last week.
The witness holes on mine are "off" one hole too high...only indicating 6 shots and have the same finish as those generic gunshow $6 mags.
Although the floorplate looks authentic, the feed lips are not GI, as they are "stepped".
My wrappers were not marked like yours either,
merely marked 7M-006 and 1987.
I'm going to try mine out today, fake or not, and see what I have.

I don't know how I ran in to this, but I did so about 10 minutes after I posted the above question:
