Presidential Primary - vote for 1 of 5 or so *hitheads you don't want.
Presidential Election - vote to stop the other *hithead from winning.
Result, it didn't work.

Thanks for the heads-up, Mike. It looks to me that the website does a good job tracking inventory. The quantity on-hand showed 219. I ordered two, went back to the site, and the quantity on-hand showed 217. If I like what I get, I may purchase some more (if they continue to be available).

Glad I'm not the only one who didn't know. I looked up IWI before ordering. It appears that IWI is an entity that was FORMERLY a division of IMI. That gave me some comfort.. I'm looking forward to seeing how these magazines compare to the IMI ones.

The two I purchased arrived at my home today. I'm away from my home, but I asked my brother to open the package and check out the magazines (I won't get to see them until this weekend). My brother told me that the magazine was marked "IMI 1-08" The date is immediately to the right of the "IMI" mark. He didn't mention any other markings.

My brother told me the magazines look like they're new.

Dallas,

Thanks--- I wonder if these were some sort of LE magazines with no markings or mere surplus??? :shock:
Also, are they packaged in any way (i.e., box, plastic, etc.)? :D

My brother told me they were wrapped in heavy plastic of some sort. He doesn't mention any restrictive (e.g., LEO) or other markings, so I doubt there are any. I'll have a chance to see them this weekend. I'll more formally compare them to my "preban" IMI magazines and try to take some comparative photos of the markings for posting here.

I'm also curious, too, if they'll fit my M78 without any fitting.

Stay tuned!
