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 M1 carbine 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 M1 carbine 10-round 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 M1 carbine 10-round magazine is a detachable box magazine that boasts a unique design that is based on the original military M1 carbine magazine, but offers a reduced capacity. As such, these magazines are guaranteed to fit and function reliably in your MIL-SPEC M1 carbine. The body of the magazine, which is designed to hold and feed 10 rounds of .30 Carbine ammunition to your rifle, is constructed from hardened steel that has been fully heat treated. It also boasts a black Teflon®-based finish for enhanced protection against rust and corrosion. Additionally, both the chrome silicon wire spring and the steel follower are precision manufactured to provide for reliable feeds on a consistent basis.

I will start this by saying for those of us living in Komifornia this is the best 10rnd mag i have come across, that being said though it still need some tweaks after you buy it. Out of the first two the I got one of the springs was put in wrong. That is easily fixed as one of the other reviews already talked about this problem. The other problem it has is that at the front of the magazine the metal is rolled in such a way that it will snag the edge of your shell and sometimes cause a jam. this two is easily fixed. I purchased a grinding stone meant for a dremil and put it in my 19v drill and just slowly ground the lip back until I could easily move a shell in out of the magazine with out it catching. I also rounded off a point on that back of the mag that I had kept pinching my thumb on when loading the magazines. the grinding stone only cost my $3 at home depo so its not like the fix cost that much. now i can trash the other 10 rnd mags that i had gotten. they are worthless. they jam for no reason and will eject them selves while shooting. I hope Keepshooting reads this and makes some changes to there fabrication process to solve these two problems. if they do they will have the only 10rnd mags worth buying on the market.
initial use of 3 of the 10 rd m1 carbine magazines resulted in all 3 causing a malfunction. this was caused by the follower tilting up at the bullet end and the round coming out nose up. disassembly revealed all 3 had springs installed backwards. springs reinstalled with proper orientation and now magazines function. hard for me to rate this mag.works good now but initially no go...
I recently aquired a Vintage M1 Carbine. It came with 1 10 rd Promag Magazine. I ordered a Keepshooting 10 rd Mag mostly because I've had problems with Promags before with other firearms. After a good cleaning and lub I took it to the range. The Keepshooting Mag locks in tight and feeds the M1 flawlessly. No problem. The promag doesn't lock in as easy. I have to pop it a little to seat it in. Also the Promag doesn't hold rounds in place. They tend to move forward when loading. I have to keep pushing them back. I've already ordered another Keepshooting Mag. I'll still be looking for a USGI mag jusst because I want one but very satisfied with Keepshooting Mags.
Have not had a chance to use the 2 I ordered and received quickly. I live in the free state of Arizona and avoid kalifornia. Sometimes I have to travel there or cut across. Now I can take my trusty Saginaw along without being a felon. Kalifornia voters, WAKE UP.
I bought 3 of these 10 rounders to comply with California law. All three had sharp inner edges on the front of the feed lips and the rounds would jam on the case mouths. I deburred the lips using #120 wet/dry paper wrapped around a 5/16" dowel. On one of mags the first round was very difficult to move forward because of high friction with the straight portion of the inner feed lips. I had to cut off one full coil from the mag spring to lower this force and then all worked well. My carbine is an Underwood dated 9-43 and works perfectly with mil spec mags, and also the Keep Shooting mags after the modifications.
Work great in a Winchester 1943 model carbine. This is the fourth that I have purchased.
Great magazine, fits weapon perfectly. I highly recommend it.
There are better magazine available, but at double the cost. The metal is on the thinner side, but they don't feel flimsy and the magazines seat well. My only complaint is that on all three magazines, the last round doesn't feed. The bolt scrapes along the top of the case. I assume that the spring is not pushing the last round up fast enough to get in front of the bolt before it begins traveling forward. Perhaps they need more use to break in.
I have an AO Carbine and had feeding issues with the factory mag. Ordered 2 10 rd mags last summer and they worked just fine. No feed issues and they fit very well. They also eject easily. I just ordered 4 more mags. $14 is a fair price as well. I can't own the 15 rd as I live in NY.
This is a perfect 10rd Magazine for your carbine! You can not go wrong with this. I have mags and they work Great! No Jams! Just Perfect.
I have an Auto-Ordnace M1 carbine. The factory mags were uniformly horrible--sometimes they just fell out of the rifle! Keepshooting mags, however, seated nice and tight and functioned perfectly, not a single misfire in a hundred-round session! Now they're out of stock, dangit. PLEASE MAKE MORE!!!
Purchased 4 magazines and they are great. Cost less than half the price of 2 other magazines and they are just as good. Will definitely be purchasing more of these in the future as well as other items.
Great magazine had no feeding or seating issues. Metal is thinner than Gi issue. All in all a well made mag at a fair price.
I received the two ten round carbine magazines within just several day of placing my order. Finally got out to the range today and tried each in both my Universal and Plainfield carbines. Went through USGI, commercial and my own reloads, about 150+ rounds by the time I was done. Not so much as a hiccup at any time. Both magazines slid right into the magazine wells without undue resistance and, when they were empty, dropped right without assistance when the magazine release was pressed in. Flawless fit and function from where I stand. If you're now in the unfortunate situation of legally needing this size magazine (ie. NYS) , I can't see where you can go wrong with this product.
I have an Auto Ordnance M1 Carbine. I ordered a 10 round and a 15 rd mil spec. from Keep Shooting. With the mil-spec you couldn't ask for better, smooth as silk. The ten round would miss feed a bit and I noticed the inside edges of feed lips were a bit sharp. I disassembled the mag and stoned the inside top of the mag. I reassembled the mag and it works perfectly. Both mags lock into the gun better than the AO mags. Bottom line is, these mags work well in the Auto Ordnance M1 Carbines.
An excellent magazine. it fits almost as well as my factory mag, and is easily modified to fit perfectly. The steel is a bit on the thin side, but it should be fine as long as you don't TRY to destroy it. the finish is basically paint and wears off of the feed lips and other rub points rather quickly, so don't expect it to stay pretty. it works, and that is all I ned
Very high quality and a great price. They work very well, feed nice and no jams.
These mags are simply the best! The fit perfectly, and feed flawlessly... They are a must if you live in the Peoples Republic of California.
Ordered 3 and love them, they work great!
Quick shipping even in these days of long back orders.
High quality. Great to use for shooting off the bench. Very impressed with this mags construction for the price.
This mag is just as good like all the other Keepshooting.com brand mags I have purchased. I use it at the range because it is lighter than the 15 round magazine and the range has a three round max in a rifle anyway. It is a really well made mag but unless you need a CA compliant 10 round mag, get the 15 round for basically the same price.
Loads slick with smoothest follower ever. Feed lips slightly tight so bolt needs quick release when hand feeding. OTOH won't lose rounds with transport. Ejects well when empty. Range ready out the box.
The mag came really fast, shipping was fast and easy, mag fits my m1 carbine perfect. It is great quality, price and works perfect. I will be doing a lot more business with keep shooting. com!!!
The mag looks great and functions perfectly. If I didn't live in The Peoples Republic of Kalifornia I would have went with the 15 rounder. So if you live in a mag cap restricted state, go with this one.
