Is there any listing on who made 15 rd carbine mags? I know the markings were first letter to the carbine maker and next to the mag maker. RE; S-O neans Saginaw was the carbine maker and O means the mag maker. I have some marked UN, U, K-I, BW etc. Just wondering?

That's correct....they're coded to the prime contractor and sub contractor and there were quite a few different markings. There used to be a good website that covered this but I can't remember where it was. Have you tried doing a google search?
