Re: Is history resting it's self

Things were pretty crappy in the '60's with Vietnam War protesters and the CIvil Rights Issues. They were rioting and burning down cities back then.

I have seen some Thermold M1a mags. Very cheap and don't fit well or function well. Stay away.

When did you buy your magazines?

I know they moved their factory from NC to AR in 2014 and have read some good reviews? I also heard the older ones were junk.

thanks
