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 MIL-SPEC M1 carbine 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 MIL-SPEC M1 carbine magazine is a detachable box magazine that boasts a design that is shared with the original military 15-round M1 carbine magazine. As such, these MIL-SPEC magazines are ensured to fit and function reliably in your MIL-SPEC M1 carbine. The body of the magazine, which is designed to hold and feed 15 rounds of .30 Carbine ammunition to your M1 carbine, is constructed from hardened steel and boasts a black Teflon®-based finish 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.

Great looking mags I ordered a few 15 and a few 30 rounders. All of them had the springs on backwards casing follower tilt. I was a little bit disappointed but I tested the before firing so crisis averted. All in all I would definitely buy more. Review by bassam (Posted on 1/13/2017)

I bought 4 of these, and at first they had feed issues. I figured out they had the springs in backward. I flipped the springs around, and they have been flawless. Check any mags you have by pressing down on the rear of the follower. The whole follower should go straight down. If it tilts any at all, the spring is probably in backward. Mag springs should always be installed with the highest end under the rear of the follower. If the factory could get the springs in the right way, 5 stars all the way across. It is an easy enough fix, though.

The build quality on these magazines are very good. The mag springs on two of the three that I ordered were extremely light, but due to other reviews I knew this going in.
For the price of three of these mags, plus a three pack of Wolff Xtra power mag springs, you get some top quality magazines at a heck of a price!

I was really surprised. This mag was a last ditch attempt to fix Universal feeding problems, if it didn't work - I would dump the carbine. But it works! Only one mag-full is actually fired, multiple dry-fed - no single hiccup. Unbelievable. After all the struggles with multiple manufacturers mags... Review by Alex (Posted on 9/20/2016)

Magazines are close to 1/3rd the price of USGI. I deburr my mags and very lightly oil the springs. I bought two, they load 15 and feed 15. With after market mags, I dremel follower hump with diamond wheel to make them last shot hold open. Good job KeepShooting, I use them in my Inland USGI, AND Universal repro.

I bought a 10 pack of "extra power" springs from Wolff, installed them on both original equipment mags from AO and KS. This solved the problem of not feeding the last two rounds as described earlier. Thus, I have just ordered three more of the 15 rd mags and also one more of the 30 rd mags because it is good out of the box. Only suggestion would be for Keep Shooting to upgrade the spring in the 15 rd mag as many customers complained . Review by Robert (Posted on 8/20/2016)

This is the one I've been looking for since purchasing my 30 Carbine early in the year from a sporting-goods store. Received it today and couldn't wait to get out and try it. Absolutely no feeding problems, and it didn't seem to matter what brand of ammo I used. Thanks Keep Shooting. Review by Douglas (Posted on 8/17/2016)

Springs in backwards, reversed to correct position. springs on the 5 mags were of different lengths, all stretched longer to same length to function. Stoned the feed lips and follower sides. After dismal start all functioning. Springs seem poorly made. Mag body well made. Will probably buy more. Review by George (Posted on 8/13/2016)
Same as "Good mag, weak spring by Michael

In my AO replica, I had the same results as Michael, posred 8/2/2016. The 15 rd mags worked fine until the last 2 rds--bolt was riding over them and not engaging. 30 rd mag was perfect. One of the 3 fifteen rd mags follower was riding low and solved that by reversing the spring--still wouldn't get those last 2 rds. FYI, KEEP SHOOTING mgs are far better than AO oem mags (they wouldn't lock in mag well. The KS mags will lock in if you depress the mag release button when inserting them. Over all, have never been pleased w/ my AO. Guess I'll have to look for some replacement 15 rd springs and get some more of the 30 rd mag from KS. Review by Marathoner (Posted on 8/12/2016)

Body, floor-plate, follower alloy and construction seem better than all USGI mags I own, mag catch lugs are EXACTLY in the right spot and strong. Did not like the springs and replaced them with USGI NOS, loaded them up and went to the range. All (4) work great. Review by lewis (Posted on 8/4/2016)

I own two of these and two 30 round mags. The 30 rounders work flawlessly. These 15 rounders work fantastic until the last round. The last round wouldn't feed even when hand cycled. I swapped the springs for surplus GI springs and they both run great now. The quality of the metal is excellent and they drop free which is a plus. Keepshooting, if you put a stronger spring in these mags, they'll be top notch. Review by Michael (Posted on 8/2/2016)

So far, I have 5 of these mags, they work pretty well besides the initial hiccups. Two of them had a failure to feed on round 6 and 8 in the first 5 or so loadings, after that, they've run flawlessly. I'm holding off on 5 stars because half stars aren't allowed and they didn't function perfectly initially. Review by Jon (Posted on 2/25/2016)

After trying several after market magazines, I found this one from KeepShooting, and at several dollars less. Took it to the range and had zero failure to feeds, which had been a recurring problem with the other manufacturer's magazines. I will purchase this one again! Wish you guys had the 30-round M1 mag in stock... Review by Darin (Posted on 1/29/2016)

They look and work great. For some reason the last round won't feed. I picked up three of the 30 round mags when I ordered the 15 round mag and the 30 round mags will feed all 30. All in all I am still very happy with them and will order more and would recommend them to my friends. Review by Kevin (Posted on 1/8/2016)
SKEPTICAL OF ALL 5 STAR REVIEWS

I was really skeptical of all the 5 star reviews. I read other places that bad reviews are removed from the site. I order 4-15 round M1 Carbine mags anyway. I took the to the range and they performed flawlessly. They fit perfect, unlike the Korean mags that are tight an d have to be pulled out of the rifle. I haven't tried the 30 round ones as the 2 I have from the 1960's need a forward pressure on the mag bottom to cycle. When I get some extra money of a great sale comes about, I'll give them a try. Believe the reviews and give these a try. You won't be disappointed and you won't have to pay 2-3 times as much for USGI mags that have been laying around for 60-70 years rusting. They might be better quality, but you can get 3 for the price of 1 and they are brand new, not rusted. Review by Ed (Posted on 9/23/2015)

These 15 round magazines are great ! Well made and by a company you can trust. They stand behind their products too. I originally bought 2 magazines and after running them through my tests , I bought 3 more. I plan to buy more later on. This product is one you can tell your shooting buddies about and not have to worry about getting a boot in your backside! Review by James (Posted on 9/22/2014)
