Ordered an unspecified number of these mags, flawless and American made. Word is these are the ones that Springfield uses (hint hint) keep a light coat of gun oil on them after use. CMI rocks

Best Quality

The M1A magazines from Check Mate Industries are exactly the same as the magazines from Springfield Armory--at nearly half the cost. There are cheaper magazines available, but most "cheap" M1A mags are notorious for functionality problems. Spend the extra $$ and buy a CMI magazine. You will not be disappointed.

Great Mags...Great Price.

Rebirth of the M-14 / M1A
July 15, 2011
By Joe in CT

The rifle that was supposed to cure all the deficiencies of the M-1 Garand ended up being reborn because of unexpected circumstances. But all the accessories, like magazines, were nowhere to be found, having been discarded by an anti-gun President. Luckily Checkmate was available to join forces with the civilian rifle manufacturer. I have a half dozen of the 20 round GI size mags, and all have worked perfectly in my M1A. They have provided the key to giving the M14/M1A the chance it never got to show its stuff, and at a reasonable price. I have also bought a few 5 and 10 rounders for easier bench shooting, and they have the same quality as the GI 20's.

Check mate magazines are quality. These are the same as used by Active Duty Army. How do I know I looked at my US issued M14 magazines in our Arms room and they are made by Check mate industries.

Well finished, perfect fit and perfect function. I own 5 of these and they have all functioned perfectly. They seem better made than some oversees sourced mags I have. Cheaper than springfield mags.

I found the entire purchasing experience with check mate Ind to be easy and went without a hitch. I carried an m-14 in Vietnam. I'm familiar with milspec mags. These mags are equal in every way.I've fired several magazine loads of ammo through this mag and found it to be superior to every other magazine I've examined. Keep up the good works folks.

Mags you can depend on

By Doug

My SOCOM 16 is my "go to" gun and as such I need to know it is going to fire every time. These CMI magazines help it to operate flawlessly. It is also a huge bonus that they are some of the more inexpensive M1A magazines and they are sold by a great company like 44MAG that ships them fast and for free!!!

Great mags!

These magazine are really the best you can get (aside from the SAI mags for double the price) at $27 delivered to your door, it cant be beat. I hope to ordering 6 more soon

Top notch, mags arrived in bags with a light coat of cosmoline, wiped them down and they are good to go. Fantastic quality.

Signed up for email alerts on 20rd magazines during the AWB crisis. Ordered 3 when I was alerted and the magazines were processed and shipped within a couple days. They only took a few days to travel from Oregon to Georgia and were CMI stamped. The cost of the magazines and the free shipping meant these magazines were faster and cheaper than ordering direct from the manufacturer.

January 31, 2013
By Travis

Top notch quality as always from CMI. This last order from yielded magazines stamped "Restricted-Law Enforcement/Government Use Only M14 1996." I found this a little ironic. Fast shipping as usual.

Great Service !!!!

Hands down, CMI mags are the best looking, fitting, and functioning mags for the M1A/M14 platform. 44Mag has the best prices and FAST shipping. Will buy more as needed.

December 03, 2013

Great magazines, my friend ordered two of them for me. New production magazines function just as good as my original 1960's USGI production magazines. I will be ordering two more of these CMI magazines. Great company that knows what can and cannot be shipped to Hawaii unlike other companies. Mahalo 44mag!!

Outstanding Magazines
December 13, 2013

Great company very reasonable and fast shipping. After receiving two Checkmate Industries magazines from a friend and using them I bought two more and again very happy with 44Mag and Checkmate Industries. No need to hassle 44Mag when it comes to magazine sales to Hawaii, they know their stuff when it comes to the laws here. Mahalo and Merry Christmas to all at 44Mag

Best new magazines to buy
January 18, 2014
By Daniel

In the current M1A market, CMI makes the very best mags you can buy. Whenever I go to a store or a gun show, they only sell Asian made fake "W"-stamped M1A mags and they do not work very well at all. It appears you can only get CMI brands online at a decent price. Now, I'd like to also point out that CMI mags are not the best magazines I used for a M1A. I bought a lot of surplus BRW S-1, and original real W stamped mags. The original 1960s era M1A mags are by far superior in terms of function and feel. However, the bad thing about the original is that nobody makes them anymore, and since the 95 AWB, they are getting harder to find. At one point in time, you can easily buy some for as little as 20 bucks and they were being sold all over the place. Now you can't even touch a used GI mag unless you plan to spend 50 dollars or more and even then to get a brand new in the wrap, you'll be spending upwards of 100 dollars and only a few places are selling them as they are slowly drying up. The market is also flooded with a lot of fake original GI M1A mags. With that in mind, CMI is the very best you can get in the current world of M1A mags and buying it from a legit source like 44mag, you'll ensure to stay away from the fake Asian made cheap stuff. I personally love the CMI mags. They fit well into my M1A, they function flawlessly as in being about to load all 20 rounds and being able to cycle them with no issue at all. I never had a bolt lock failure either with the CMI mags. With the cheap Asian mags, I can't always load 20, and sometimes round just pops out of the mag for no reason and on top of that it doesn't always lock the bolt back when the last round is fired. I never have those issues with a CMI brand or my original GI issued. I have currently bought a lot of CMI mags and I really like them. I don't have anything negative to say at all. The CMI mags are built to USGI specification and they are currently supplied and used in the military. This same CMI brand is being used by military service member who depend on them with their lives. Overall if you have a M1A, you can buy the fake Asian stuff for about 5-10 dollars less than the CMI brands. My recommendation is to spend the extra 5-10 dollars and get a brand that is not only trusted by the military, but is probably the only American made M1A magazine in the current industry.

Quality Mags for Half the Price of Springfield

By Andy

I shot 20 rounds of Tula ammo in all of the 5 that I bought and they ran flawlessly! And they lock in to the magazine well properly, unlike a Chinese one that I bought a while back. When it's your life on the line, do not settle for cheap mags; go with Checkmate!

I had some El Cheapo mags that worked in my SOCOM 16, but when I changed out the stock with a Sage EBR stock, the mags would not function. Even the 10 round Springfield mag would not work properly ( would only hold 9 rounds for it to function). After some research and price shopping I tried the CMI mags and they have worked perfect. 44MAG's pricing could not be beat and free shipping did not take more than a few days. Very happy.

Great magazines

These CMI magazines are everything you want from a magazine. They are easy to insert and remove. They fed reliably when I took them to the range for a course of fire consisting of 500 rounds of Federal .308 ammunition. They are a great value. I received mine in 2 days. I extend much thanks CMI for making this high quality magazine and 44mag for making them available in a manner that is both affordable and convenient.

Took 3 days to arrive. I was expecting some fragile flimsy POS for this price, but these are the real deal. They function and cycle flawlessly, and seat snug tight. I will be ordering more.

great mags with excellent service

By Andrew Rife

I ordered 5 of the 20rd mags and one of the 25 round mags. The build quality is top notch and the rounds fit well into the magazine with no bulging or flex. The service is on par with the mags. I've ordered from here before and they have yet to disappoint me. The shipping was fast. The packaging was neat and resulted in no damage with minimal wasted packaging. They have assembled a great selection on products and a great team to process my order. I ordered on a Monday and had my magazines in my house by that same Thursday. Well done. I would highly recommend and plan to continue my business with

Free shipping AND the shipping was 2 day!!!! That's crazy!!! I will keep it simple, if you are reading this review, stop hunting for the best deal around you have already found it!
