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.:rofl:

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. :biggrin2:

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.
