    totally interchangable.

    the steyr m and s series are very modular. they procure their magazines from a highly reputable magazine manufacturer and didn't change the magazine design when they updated the m to the m-a1.

    the difference from 14 to 15 rounds could have been accomplished by a spring/follower change, but the outside dimensions haven't changed.

    And just FYI - my pistol came with 2 15 round magazines. I ordered 2 more 14 rounders later on, and even though they are marked 14 rounds, they actually hold 15. I've never seen a "real" 14 round magazine for the M's - just 10 and 15. When you get them, make sure they don't really hold 15 rounds.
