The number inside the "diamond in circle" is 11.

 

Unknown mfg. alloy magazine markings. These magazines has BWB (Bundesamt für Wehrteknik und Beshaffung) acceptance stamps as have HK and Rheinmetall magazines.

This lead me to assume they are of german origin, since magazines made for bundeswehr by licensees outside germany has their own qc / acceptance stamps.

Anyone who knows who made these, please contact me.

Below are BWB stamps from a HK steel magazine and a Rheinmetall alloy magazine.
