    I saw on the Springfield Armory site that they offer a 15-round capacity magazine and a 20-round capacity magazine. My question is, are these magazines different in length, because in the picture I can't see any difference in length. Or is the 15-round just the same container altered in some way so it can't accept 20 rounds?

    Thanks,
    Mert

    In case anyone else is interested in this question, I got the answer from Springfield: "The 15 rd M1A magazines are the same magazine body as the 20 rd magazines but they have been blocked internally to hold only 15 rds."
