Keepshooting.com now manufactures and distributes MIL-SPEC M1 carbine magazines. These magazines, which share a design with the original military M1 carbine magazine, are designed to hold and feed 15 rounds of .30 Carbine ammunition to your M1 carbine. Guaranteed to fit and function in any MIL-SPEC M1 carbine, these brand new magazines are a must-have accessory for any M1 carbine enthusiast.
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

Brand new, looks good, have yet to function test however I have no doubt it will work flawlessly.
Review byJim Verified Buyer
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...

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 byCarlS Verified Buyer
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 byRobert Verified Buyer
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 .

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 byGeorge Verified Buyer
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 byMarathoner Verified Buyer
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 bylewis Verified Buyer
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.
