Who makes this Magazine?




Side bottom back corner says 45 ACP made in Taiwan and the follower has a star with lines going to a point behind it to make it look like a shooting star?

The follower is a Chip McCormick Shooting Star. Don't know anything about a mag tube made in Taiwan.

Note: He had about 6 of these and they were all marked the same so I doubt it was just a follower in one mag they were all marked the same.

Guess they must be counterfit because McCormick mags are made in the USA.

The Mag I have has the same logo as the one on the right in this pic.

McCormick sells replacement spring/follower kits.....I'd guess that someone upgraded a handful of mag bodies with the parts. They'd probably be fine for practice mags if the price was right.

Well some have suggested that it is a knock off upgraded with McCormick parts but McCormick sells that follower for $7.66 if you buy the spring and the follower it is $15.47 either way I cannot see some one upgrading a magazine with McCormick Parts and sell it for ten bucks even if it was just the follower added. This is really odd.

yea that is what I figure but that logo is a McCormick Logo which is patented I would think they could not get by with it they must advertise somewhere.
