Since the Crime Bill went away, we have been awash with inexpensive, high quality M16 mags.

Since the War on Terror has brought back the M14 rifle in USGI service, where then are all the new manufacture M14 USGI mags?

Is Uncle Sam still using old stock, or is there a company making new USGI M14 mags?

Good, good, now we're getting somewhere. Now, where can I buy some and does anyone have a range report? Are they as good as the older USGI ones or are they like the Checkmate M9 mags?

ETA Thanks Different, you are a fantastic, knowledgable M14 source.
