I have 3 thirty round repro mags for sale. I can't remember when I bought them but it was a while ago. I used 2 of them when I had Reisings and had zero trouble with them. One is still new in the wrap. Price is $265 delivered.

They're neither Christies or Keystones for certain.  The construction of the reinforcing disc below the feed lips is all wrong.  Neither would either of them (nor any other reputable US manufacturer) counterfeit the H&R marking.  I'm betting on a Taiwanese origin.

 

So if they work are you selling your Keystones :D

I sold all my keystones. They never ran well. The Uzi .45 pro mags run great though.

Sarco sold reproduction Harrington & Richardson marked Reising magazines. There was some slight difference on the Sarco magazine roll stamping from a WW2 factory H&R magazine. I never owned any Sarco magazines.

Are they the Numrich 20 rounder repros?  Edit:  I believe the Numrich mags didn't have the H&R portion written on the mag.  Perhaps the repros out of Taiwan?

 

FWIW, these got good reviews when they were available.

From the pictures, those looked like 20s not 30s.  Only reason I'd didn't even consider buying them.  If they work they're worth the selling price but I really don't need/want any 20s

got the mags today...they are 20's which is fine(i figured they were). i compared them to original mags and studied it for a min or 2. they are 100% identical! the disc area that Strangrranger talked about? its idenitical..maybe there's glare on the pics above...it has me wondering if these were made off the original machines from 1942?
if they run they were a good deal compared to legit ones that are $175-225 each (when you can find them)

Is the roll stamping on the face of the magazines identical?

on closer inspection i can see a few things...the over all shape is a bit less curvy than the real deal, spot welds are different, the circle part on the back is a bit different. very subtle differences
