    Just bought some M-14 mags. I believe they are issue, but I am not sure. They are all parkarized. The spine have small armory marks.
    One is KMT, one is UHC, one is WO or OM, one is HR-R, and one is, BRW S-1. Is one brand any better than the other. Are these actual USGI?
    Thanks

    Yep, they are GI. I am not sure about the KMT, can't remember but it will come back to me. The UHC is Union Hardware Company, the OM is Olin Mathison (Winchester), the HR is Harrington & Richardson and the BRW is Borg Warner. They all are worth hanging on to but probably the OM (Winchester) may bring a little more for resale.

    KMT stands for Kileen Machine & Tool. I believe that they made M14 parts for the gulf war. I could be wrong. I have a KMT triggerguard.
