    image.jpgimage.jpgif you notice the finish on the hk mags changed on the two examples I have the 10/64 vertical stamped had a more matte grey black finish while the 3/71 non vertical marked is a more shiny black finish on it. I believe the numbers that are vertical that are the same on both our magazines is a stock ID number for that piece of equipment in the military. Just like how the US military has a stock number for lots of military gear.

    The finish is different because the ones with the circle/diamond were not made by HK, they were made by Rheinmetall, a subcontractor for HK.

    Of course, the finish varied throughout the years anyways.

    I meant these two. Oops. I noticed on all the aluminum magazines it seems the floor plates are all parkerized instead of whatever the finish is on the body of the magazine.image.jpg

    I also noticed these. Are these a sort of acceptance mark on the back of the magazine? The steel 9/60 does not have it as well as the 10/64 vertical marked hk magazine.the Rheinmetall is a 6/64 marked vertical and has the larger eagle. The 3/71 non vertical marked has a smaller one witch seems to have a number of 507 stamped within it? Possibly the Rheimetall has the same number below the eagle? It’s hard to tell with my eyes...and I’m still fairly young haha. image.jpg

    The BWB is from the German "Bundesamt für Wehrtechnik und Beschaffung" or "Federal Bureau of Military Technical Procurement."

    Do you know if the number within the mark varies?

    They must. I'm assuming they are a plant production date/line/time code. Don't know that for sure. All of mine that I have found with that stamp are the really small ones. I can't read the numbers on them even with 2 magnifying glasses stacked up together! Lol!

    I don’t. Although I want some of those now... haha. The lot/ID vertical numbers are the same so I can only assume they were made in Germany for those contracts? I don’t belive either of those countries had the tooling to make the magazines.

    When I first started buying surplus mags I bought boxes of these to fill out an order. I got free shipping this way.
    Back then they were new or like new. I don't have a clue of how many hundreds I have I storage.
    A few others on this site bought a lot of them also...……..
    Now! with this thread started I will have to dig out a few boxes and look/see what is in there.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    OK! I dug out 10 dozen that I could reach.
    years : 63,64,65,66,67,68,69,70,71,73,74,76,79,80,81,82,85 ,86,87,88,89,90,
    ( I did not sort by month) too much work to do that.

    I have more over in storage that I cannot get to, maybe later.

    HAVE A GOOD DAY!
