Well, Knock Me Over With A Feather
A seller on Ebay is selling what he described as Military Contract Surplus Colt Magazines by various manufacturers. The price was really good at $69.00 for a dozen .45acp magazines.
Sooooooooooo....I shoot him a fast and very POLITE mail & ask him if the magazines have the ASSY code number on the base plate & also the MFR manufacturer code number...which THEY WOULD HAVE if they were Govt MIL Contract Mags or contract production over-runs.
I also just POLITELY state that I just wanted to check (for sure) before I place a bid that they are not Chinese Knock Off magazines.
Anyway...Here is his reply to me...I did a "copy & paste" for you.
Item: Colt 1911 Govt .45acp 7 rnd Mags 12 magazine LOT (7222146199)
This message was sent while the listing was active.
lippman-enterprises is the seller.
" these are not chinese and i sell about 500 + a week- I do have 8 round flush fit Colt Mags with the little horse on the base.
Believe me i know what i sell i was with gunparts/Numrich arms for over 25 years and sales MGR AT COLT for 4 yrs...I suggest that you don't buy these you will never be happy and i don't want to be refunding!-thanks "
Yeah...Sure Pal...Tie that freaking BULL up outside.
I sent him back a reply & asked him for the names of any three people that he worked with at Colt during that 4 year period.
That was yesterday morning....still no answer.
That (above) tells me that they ARE Cheap Chinese Knock Off Magazines. So...Don't buy them.
By the way the Chinese ARE counterfeiting Factory COLT Magazines and they DO have a FAKE COLT Horsey on the base plate.
They are total $-hit.
Just so you all know. Be careful buying "COLT" magazines.

Good notion emaqiling him QK - due to my cynical inbuilt nature I doubt I'd go for that sorta deal. Bet he is making a real killing on those - paying what? $2.50 each himself max!
Nice earner! $3 profit each x 12 in a batch - $36 clear profit maybe.
