Ordinarily, I would advise firearm owners to seek out original, factory-produced magazines for their firearms rather than purchasing aftermarket magazines. Generally speaking, it is beneficial to seek out these original, factory-produced magazines as they are manufactured by the same company and to the exact same specifications and tolerances as those that ship with the firearms for which they are designed. Additionally, they are manufactured using the same materials, a provision which ensures both proper fit and function in your firearm. However, finding original factory-produced magazines for surplus firearms like the M14 can sometimes prove both difficult and expensive. But when the alternative is a Keepshooting.com brand magazine, then you have absolutely nothing to worry about.
Each Keepshooting.com magazine, including our M14 magazine, begins with a guarantee. Our goal prior to production is the manufacture of a magazine that is not only 100 percent functional, but also 100 percent reliable – something that took nearly two years with this particular magazine. As such, we guarantee the function and reliability of all of our house-brand magazines 100 percent. If for any reason you are unsatisfied with the performance of your magazine, it can be returned for a refund of the purchase price provided it is free from modification, damage and visible signs of usage or wear.
How can we offer such a guarantee? Prior to release, a random sampling of every magazine we carry is rigorously field tested to ensure proper fitting, feeding and ejection. Not to mention, our magazines are manufactured using quality materials alongside modern manufacturing methods. If this sounds expensive, that is because it is. But due to the number of magazines we have made, our prices are driven down and in turn passed on to you.
As noted, the M14 magazine is a detachable box magazine that boasts a design that is shared with the original Taiwanese T57 magazine. In fact, they are produced by the same contractor that first produced the T57. As such, these magazines manufactured to strict, military tolerances and are ensured to fit and function reliably in your M14 or M1A. The body of the magazine, which is designed to hold and feed 20 rounds of either 7.62x51mm NATO or .308 Winchester ammunition to your rifle, is constructed from hardened steel that was first professionally blued before being finished with a black Teflon®-based coating for enhanced protection against rust and corrosion. Additionally, both the spring and the follower are constructed from steel and are precision manufactured to provide for reliable feeds on a consistent basis.
