Check and see if you have an M2 mag catch on the rifle.
They have an extra lug to support the extra weight in the mag. Keeps the mags in a better position to feed.
Not at all a requirement, but it can help, plus a lot of rifles already have them from rebuilds.

OK, thanks. Nice find!

I'll look and see if I have a picture, pretty sure I do of the markings.

From what I can see in the photos, all of the 30 round mags look GI due to the shape of the flanges at the bottom, though it is hazy on magnification.  That's on mags 1, 2, & 4 (looking from the left). #3 is an early "hardback", which, to my knowledge, has not been duplicated, so would definitely make it WWII GI.  They bring a premium, and in my opinion,  work better.  Cheers, Bruce.

That Danish bayo a real beauty.

I never did ask you about the 30 round carbine mags. Are they the real deal USGI mags?

The mags as far as I know are USGI issue... I'll have to dig them out, or I might have a photo some where of the stamps..

(scroll down on the link for an image of the GB auction)

I  believe this is the type 56 with a NVA "Star 1" stamps all over the place.

Did anyone here save the photos from the auction?
