I have been questioning these pieces after pulling them out of my parts box the other day and wanted buy in from other members on real vs fake.
Both are blued with a smooth feeling finish but the safety is darker than most I have looked at and the font didn't have me convinced either. NOS safety maybe?
Thanks

I have a safety that looks very much like the fourth picture down and have always considered it to be repop. The very top and very bottom pictures both look legit to me.

Mag catch looks like something I'd buy.
