Hello all new member here. Thank you      I recently came across a sealed unopened 4 pack of magazines from ordinance supply depot Norfolk Va.  labeled 4 M1 carbine type magazines. I have never seen a pack like this before and can not find anything online about it. Any information on this would be appreciated.

I don’t recall ever seeing carbine mags packed with that label either. Although I have seen lots of other ordnance stuff packed and labeled just like that. I don’t think that packing is WWII period either. More like mid 1950s.

Those will be WWII mags that were inspected and repacked for storage. Could be used, could be new, could be a brick wrapped in grease paper. Better open it up and let us know what you find.

Yeah probably repacked 1948+ ; going with assumption NSC designates Naval Supply Center in Norfolk.
To each their own but would leave in the wrap and find loose ones for shooting purposes.

"
NAVSUP FLC Norfolk was first commissioned in 1919 as a Naval Supply Station."

"
Just eight years after it was established, its assigned functions had grown to such an extent that the station was officially re-designated as a Naval Supply Depot in 1927."

"In 1948, the Navy's largest, most complete supply point was officially established as a Naval Supply Center when the Naval Supply Depot consolidated all supply activities and related functions located within the confines of the Norfolk Naval Station."

"
On March 1, 1993, all Naval Supply Centers and Naval Supply Depots were renamed Fleet and Industrial Supply Centers, and then on July 1, 2011, the name changed to NAVSUP Fleet Logistics Center Norfolk, to represent a new era in support and service to fleet units and the industrial establishment."

Thank you for the information very interesting. I think I will probably just leave the contents a mystery wrapped up. Just the history of them and the fact this may be the only one in existence it makes a nice companion to my carbine. 🙂

Millions of magazines were repackaged after WW2 and could have been repacked many times after that.
I have seen individually wrapped mags in the green wax cloth that have been refinished.

I have seen several different forms of packaging as well.
