Alloy mag observation
Decided to dig through the 150 or so alloy mags I have and see what variations and dates I could observe. Changes are not very distinctive, but might interest people. Also included the dates observed on the Green Plastic Mag Pouches. Not sure if the rubberized ones are dated (some appear as if they might be).

Anyone able to add dates outside what I have.

German HK Alloy mags

9/62-4/63 No NSN stock# on them

6/63 Small NSN stock# added (12-127-7057)

3/64-3/66 Large NSN stock# added (100-12-127-7057)

6/66-3/81 NSN stock# removed

02/82-10/82 “HK” stamping now separated block letters. Date now stamped as four digits – irregardless of month

04/84 Top changed (ribs, rectangular cutout at front eliminated). “HK” returned to fancy joined letters

07/84-04/90 Same as above, but dimple at top rear eliminated
