What Quantity Round Mag

Just bought an ar15 with a 5 round mag. It is a C products ss mag. The thing is it easily holds 10 223 rounds. I am happy about that. I just want to make sure it is supposed to and wont have feeding issues. I would think it would only hold 5 if it was a five round mag correct? Once again I am happy with the extra 5 rounds just want to make sure. It is not a new magazine it came with the rifle.

I'm not a mag expert by any means, but does it look modified?

Maybe it is intended to be a 5 round mag for 300 blackout or 6.8, and by chance it is able to hold hold 10 rounds of .225 or 5.56?

Like this one... found by googling 'c products 5 round ss mag':

https://www.opticsplanet.com/c-produ...ess-steel.html

If so, I would be concerned that feeding might be unreliable if the lips were intended for a different caliber.

My Ruger mini 14 came with a 5 rd mag and I found I fit more in, but then found it wouldn't feed.

Take to a range, load it up and shoot it, you'll know pretty quick if it works or not.

If it holds 10 rounds, it is not a 5 round mag!
