The CTD web site shows two twenty rounder M14 magazines:
1) Catalog # 27466 also listed as MA5017. I believe MA5017 is the actual Springfield Armory, Inc. catalog number. The manufacturer is listed as "Springfield". Price is $44.66 each.
In 2006, Check-Mate Industries is manufacturing twenty round magazines for Springfield Armory, Inc. These are made to the same specification as the ones they make per their USGI contract. Reference: Joe DeBello, Project Manager, Check-Mate Industries.
2) Catalog # MAG350 - The manufacturer is listed as CTD. Price is $9.97.
Rock Island Arsenal issued a three year contract to Check-Mate Industries for a guaranteed minimum order of 25,000 M14 twenty round magazines. The unit price per magazine for this contract is $13.42. Based on that fact, I don't see how CTD could sell a twenty round M14 magazine made to USGI specification for less than $13.42 each. A possible answer is that the magazine, catalog number MAG350, is likely not made to USGI specifications. Reference: Rock Island Arsenal contract number W52H09-05-D-0308 dated September 19, 2005.

Do not buy the ones from CTD. They are cheap copies and got jammed at every round. Look at the floor plate and you can tell the difference between CTD and the US GI ones. They have weak spring and the mag lips are not cut correctly. I bought four and could not use any.
