M1 mil-spec magazine
Review by maxi
functions very well in my Inland carbine
Just like 1956 army issue
Review by Dick
Looks almost identical to original issue. Rounds fit as expected.
Review by jIM
I haven't been to the range yet but I see no reason these shouldn't work just fine. Bought three for the price they wanted at the gun show for one new G.I.
Good to go!
Review by David
The Son & Heir need this so that he can someday get to the Range. Now he can!
Great mag for a good price
Review by Steve
Ordered three of these for my new to me NPM Carbine that only came with one USGI mag. Heard a lot of good things about these so I thought I would try a few. I disassembled them to clean all the grease off, which I don't mind as it's protection for the blued finish, and checked if the springs were oriented correctly - they were. They fit fine, dropped free, and looked great. I was only able to run 15 rounds through each one, but there were no problems of any kind - I do wish there was an option for a bolt hold open follower though. I will be buying more.
Exactly what I wanted

What you want
Review by CharlieG
This was my first order from the company and I was very well satisfied with the the site. It was easy to use, everything worked and the layout made sense. The magazine I needed was in stock, the build was what I was looking for and the price was right so I pulled the trigger. The product arrived on time and in great shape. And, if you're like me, this is all what you want.
I like

M1 Carbine Magazine
Review by Don
Great Value and fast shipment. Plan to order more. Thank for good pricing!
Looks great, works great
Review by M1 Bill
Received my three magazines a couple of weeks ago. After cleaning the protective oil coating off, I went to the range. Fired 45 rounds through each magazine with no problems at all.
These mags are well built and fit in my A/O Carbine somewhat better than my old mags. I have bought a lot of magazines from several different company's over the past few years and these are the best I have seen, especially for the price. I plan to buy more soon.
Very good Mag's
Review by M1 Bill
Received my three new magazines a few days ago. After cleaning the preservative oil off I went to the range this morining. 45 rounds went through each magazine witrh no problems at all. These are very well built magazines, and i really like the blueing.
I have bought a lot of magazines from different places over the years and these are the best i have seen, especially for the price. I will be buying more soon.
Good purchase
Review by Ky colonel
Hard to find 15 round magazines these wre identicle to military surplus function perfectly
Good mags
Review by Barking Spider
Good mags. No malfunctions.
There was a lot of thick oil on them. The only way to clean them effectively was to disassemble and soak them in solvent, re-lube, and reassemble.
Mil-Spec 15 Round Carbine Magazine
Review by Buckybster
These are the best mags you can buy and the price is great. Haven't had any misfeeds due to the magazine. The only one I had was my fault, rushed the reloading of mag.
Tried several brands
Review by MR.
So, service was amazingly fast had the two mags in days not weeks. I say this because i order several different brands from various companies. If you want milspec and a very nice finish and not flimsy then these are it. Did i mention they are half the cost of some of the others....amazing. I spent double on !nland new production mags thinking if anything they would fit based on they are making !nland new production m1 carbines. Nope off by a half a millimeter so the mag realease and catch wont engage. Their mags just fall out. But the !nland mags were high quality metal and finish wise. Other companies worse fit worse finish. Could bend other companies and did bend the floorplates by hand. So do yourself a favor buy these and end feeding issues do to non milspec mags and ones that break apart if ya drop em to the ground or ones that you cant use unless you modify them heavily. Did i mention high quality and less money???
Best value in a Quality Magazine!
Review by Jagfan93
Runs flawlessly in my Auto-Ordnance M1-Carbine with 3 different ammo types (FMJ + Soft-Point, Hornady Critical Defense tipped HP).
Simple, high quality
Review by Ray
Ordered 5 and super happy.
Review by EZE
I bought 5 of these and ran them in a brand new "Auto Ordnance" 30 carbine. Did not have an issue. Lots of oil on them when they showed up. Wrapped in plastic wrap...wiped them down, loaded up and ran them.
Great mag
Review by Phil
Tried this mag because of the reviews and glad I did. Bought for early universal carbine witch came with a loose fitting thirty round mag. This mag fits with little movement, so put a couple boxes of cheap steel case ammo throu it and what a pleasure it is, with not one hiccup. God its Great to be American.
For neighbor
Review by Catfish
Came individualed wrapped in plastic, light coating of oil, looks great, will further review when my Korean war vet neighbor has used them.
Better then OE
Review by 51 Fan
This is the first magazine that I didn't have to modify to get my new inland m1 carbine to function without numerous ftf or fte malfunctions. Even the 15 round magazine that came with it had problems. These are top-notch magazines for the m1 carbine.
Love the magazine, bought years ago and ended up giving a few to friends. Can't wait for them to be back in stock
Review by Fred
A good M1 Carbine after-market magazine is hard to find, but these sure fit the bill. They fit and function good.
Good Product
Review by Arnold
Good Product.
Works like a charm
Review by JT
Bought one of these last year. Should’ve bought more. Works like a charm in my 74 year old Inland. Did they stop production on this mag? It’s been out of stock forever. I’d order more in a heartbeat.
They work
Review by Tim
Bought two. Arrived in new condition. Shipped quickly. So far they work fine.
Beautiful mags
Review by bassam
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.
Work well, good price
Review by Bradley
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.
Very close to USGI
Review by Jeremy
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!
It works on Universal
Review by Alex
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...
Appears to be good
Review by Nick
Brand new, looks good, have yet to function test however I have no doubt it will work flawlessly.
Review by Jim
I have been disappointed in the quality and function of non-GI M1 Carbine magazines in the past. Decided to try a few of the Keep Shooting mags and have now re-ordered. Excellent quality...will be buying more...
shooting more
Review by Dchrys
These magazines have made shooting both of my 30 Carbines such a pleasure, I almost forget how much the ammo costs.
M1 Carbine 15 round mags
Review by CarlS
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.
Update on my review of 8/12/2016
Review by Robert
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 Douglas
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 George
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.
Same as "Good mag, weak spring by Michael
Review by Marathoner
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.
very good mag with poor springs
Review by lewis
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.
Good mag, weak spring
Review by Michael
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.
After a short break in, they just work
Review by Jon
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.
Great magazine, Great Price!!
Review by Darin
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...
Great 14 round mag
Review by Kevin
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 Ed
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.
Great Product Great Price !
Review by James
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!
Work Great!
Review by Dean
I bought 4 of these and can report they work flawlessly in my IBM-AO and Inland carbines.
Good product for the money
Review by RetiredUSArmy13f
The 15 rd M1 Carbine mags have a black planted finish rather then blued, that could be a good thing in the long run I don't know yet. No markings at all, looks like the same make as the Korean 30 rounders(which run great) but if they are who cares. For the money they are great. So far they function we'll, will but a couple more.
Classic Mags
Review by Roscoe
Brand new classic mags to fill those original stock pouches or load up that bandoleer.
Nice Mags, Nice price!
Review by RemMax
I picked up a couple of these back when the 30 rnd mags were impossible to find as a fill in and love them
For shooting the M1 Carbine they have the advantage of not sticking as far out the bottom and work perfectly
The nce finish on them makes them look nice in your gun as well
Great value for your M1 Carbine

Good Deal
Review by 39bore
Got a couple of these and a one of KS's repop pouch's, so my originals could retire. Very pleased.
Mags that work!
Review by Winner
Performed perfectly in my Winchester WWII Carbine. They fit like military 15 round mags and feed better. Incredible value!
Quality product
Review by KP Duty
These work just as well as the WW2 surplus magazines. The only difference you’ll notice is no maker’s mark on the back and these cost less.
Very Nice Magazines
Review by ShamrockShelby
Great Mags at a good price! Only wish the 30rnd mags were available as well!
Great buy
Review by Casey
I was unsure if these would work well with the reproduction M1's but they seem to lock in tight and feed well.
fair price and good quality
Review by Marcel
excellent product works as expected, and no price gouging
Review by Mike
These function flawless and the title say's the rest!
Just what I'd hoped for!
Review by Ron
Just got these mags in and they look great!. Can't believe the quality for the price. These are unbeatable. Can't want to get notified that the 30-round mags are back in stock. I'll be buying those as well
great mags
Review by aaron
The M1 carbine mags are the best I have used excellent quality reliable feeding you can't go wrong.
Better than the mag that came with my Tactical M1
Review by AvidShooter
This 15 round mag seats and feeds better in my AOM160 than the factory 15 round mag that came new with my rifle. I have purchased a least a half dozen brand mags with this teflon finish and they all seat and feed very well. The only negative to these mags is that the finish scrapes up easily but for the money you really cant beat them.
Works great!
Review by roy
I purchased these to use in my Inland WWII carbine. There was absolutely no problem in loading, locking nor running including rapid fire. I see no difference between these mags and my beat up WWII mags.
Great Magazine
Review by David
Performed Flawlessly in my Mil Spec Universal (pre 68' manufacture) So happy to get some mags that actually work like they should so I can keep on shooting. Will be getting some more of these soon.
solid mag!
Review by roy
These are easy to load & run flawlessly in an IBM carbine and in an Iver Johnson, Works both semi and full auto.
Very well made
Review by RICHARD
I bought six of these for my Auto Ordnance carbine, wrung them out with three fills each and have experienced zero failures to feed with them. Their quality is definitely better than the Korean versions and, if you compare them side-by-side, these from Keep Shooting feel more solidly-made and stronger. Really great quality.
Great mag
Review by Lloyd
love these mags, fit nice and snug and feed reliably, definitely recommend to anyone with a M1 carbine
Great magazine
Review by Stephen
These fit very well and feed reliably. The price is right and did I mention they feed reliably? To me, that's the key, and even my finicky Inland likes them. I highly recommend these to anyone.
Fits just like the USGI mags
Review by Daniel
These are a better made mag than the Korean ones and for not a lot more money. It's nice that the best quality product is also American made. The floorplate design is more rigid than the ROK copies and will make for a longer lasting product.
M1 Carbine Mag
Review by Gunner
I have been collecting M1 Carbines for nearly 30 years in addition to being the founder of the M1 Collectors Club.

I have tried multiple aftermarket mags. These mags include some from major manufactures and the recent imports from Korea.
The brown paper wrapped Korean mags have had issues with lock up and function/failure associated with feeding.

The mags that I have purchased from Keepshooting are top notch and function without fail in multiple carbines.

The only mag that is equal or better is the USGI mags.


Love this mag
Review by Warbaby
I love this magazine. It fits perfectly in all my Carbines and its so slick to load. I will buy more shortly for my father's birthday that is coming up.
