That said... Since they make a ton of OEM magazines for different companies, there are a lot of them floating around with no maker's mark. They have been known to just stamp a C on the bottoms of magazines as well. You can usually identify unmarked CM mags by the flat backed dimple, patent number stamped on some followers, and to a lesser extent, the caliber stamped on the side of the mags.
Yes.. one is my checkmate mag.. sorry for the small pics.. but you can click in them and they should open up to larger format.
