Matco FAL magazines

I only found one thread on these and it didn't say much. Anyone know what the scoop is on these?

Well I took a risk on these magazines since I was trying to avoid the DSA magazines everyone says are garbage. Bad news is these are DSA magazines not Matco, good news for me at least is that they seem to work fine in my FAL.

I was under the impression they were the Taiwan made magazines. Could be wrong though.

I think this guy got shipped DSA mags, not Matco. No way DSA would let somebody rebrand them. Unless you know different. This Matco outfit sells a number of different magazines but I can't find anything on the company.

I think you missed the thread where Moses has been accepting orders for months but not shipping anyone magazines. No coms. And I think the CC companies have cut him off.

Doesn't mean the magazines are bad, though; it does mean it will become increasingly more difficult to acquire them, though. He really needs to sell his operation to someone that can actually run the business and do so ethically.

His 26-rounders never materialized, either.

I think there are enough threads about Moses. So who has had one of these Matco mags in their hands. Or even better, in a rifle?
