Bought a couple of the barrier-bagged USGI mags at a gunshow. The markings read "19200 ASSY 5508694 MFR 30745". Does anyone know what company is represented by the "30745" code?

Never mind, found it myself: The Mason-Rust Company in Pittsburgh, code assigned in November 1974.

i have 3 that say exactly the same thing, they are trash.

i think they rejected the lot, 2 split mag bodies after less then 30 rounds and one floor plate flew off.

and they were supposedly new in wrapper.

didnt look used but there was perm. black marker on the weld line, or bluing pen either, springs and followers worked good though.

i chopped the followers down and stuck them in my cm mags.
