I know this has been covered before, but please humor me:
How can a newbie distinguish between a “GI” 30 round mag (or 20) and an aftermarket one, if you will? I went to a gun show last weekend and there was this lady from South Carolina selling them (slightly pitted, still in wax/paper wrapper) for 15 bucks a pop…but I’m not sure what to look for. I’m gonna see her again in a month or so, and I wanna score a few good ones if I can.

The only exception to the WWII magazines that could cause confusion are the replica MGC magazines that were made for the MGA Replica Thompsons that have been the topic of much discussion on this list. These are easy to distinguish because they don't have the tab on the follower that engages the trip when empty.
