    Anyone seen Chinese mags packaged this way?

    Can anyone tell me about these, the mags are unmarked in any way, have standard Chinese followers and no extra witness holes, No “China” floor plates, no gold or ticker tape China stickers. Packaging looks almost military, are these Chugos in the factory wrapping?

    Thanks

    No witness holes? That's weird.

    Take one out of the packaging and show some more pics. It's the only way to know what we are looking at.

    "No extra witness holes" which I take to mean the one standard one but not the three you would find on a Poly Tech mag.

    I would guess those mags were commercial exports but they could also have been something a specific importer requested.

    I collect chinese mags and have never seen a package like that. All the original plastic packages I have seen do not have excess plastic. It seems wastefull and would take up too much space in a crate or cardboard box.

    I agree.

    Tried searching the stock number on the bag, but no luck. Certainly don't look like the bags were designed to hold a magazine. My guess is a vendor got some empty bags from somewhere and put them in it.

    Read right over that lol. Just standard flatbacks then.

    Previous owner could have put them in the bag...

    I bought one from a pawn shop once that were in some clear plastic wrap but it was much less plastic and no white backing or numbers/letters. He had more but I only bought one, for some reason. They were packed in a light oil that had evaporated and had some small spots of surface rust. They were all flat backs, one witness hole, and had "MADE IN CHINA" floor plates.

    I have two packs of Chinese mags, on has 5, the other 4. Wrapped in arsenal paper, sealed in plastic. Some Chinese writing on the paper.
    I know they are flatbacks, but I have no clue as to markings, or witness holes. Really don’t want to open the packs to find out.

    That looks like distributor packaging to me. There are a few types of arsenal packaging, and thats not one of them . The packaging looks relatively new.
    As far as distributor packaging there are as many different types as there were distributor's.
