    ...added to list.
    These are not South African, just cheap knockoffs.

    There's a clear difference. Look at the grooves and the top.

    Original South African 30 round for $34.95:

    Knockoff 30 rounders for $12.97:

    There is a distinct difference...

    Pictured below are real South African contract G3 Magazines.
    Heavy gauge, parkerized metal, usually dark followers
    with no forming marks on the edges :



    Any others are cheap, or, as in the 2nd post above, even cheaper knockoffs.

    Also, check out the pictures of some other South African mags in the top post here.
    Side by side, the genuine heavy gauge, parkerized mags are a far cry from the ones
    sold by "What a Country" and "Cheaper Than Dirt".

    Just because someone labeled some mags "South African", doesn't mean they are.

    Yes they are listed as Original South African. They are stamped and manufactured exactly the same as the ones you posted except for the finish. They could have been refinished, or they could just be a different finish. I've seen the exact same type of original HK magazines in many different finishes, haven't you?

    It sounds like you might have experience with this though. So, if you think they are not original South African, please contact the seller and let me know what they say.

    Thanks.

    Either way, good listing! Makes it tough for me to sell the parts I have though and not lose money!! I over paid on a few things over the years I guess. :)

    It is, very much so! I have no doubt that it will still sell on gunbroker for market prices. You have done a great service to the guys here by helping us all save every buck that we can to get more goodies! After all, everyone wants the next "accessory" for their toys. I mean, guns are like Barbie for guys right?

    Folks...

    This thread has been turned into a stickie. Also, we are looking at expanding editing permissions for this thread so that anyone can edit the information (as opposed to just the original author). This would make things easier to read and follow...

    Hopefully, making it a stickie will prevent it from getting sucked into the 60 day rule of auto-delete like the rest of the Marketplace forums.
    "Crushing the bejeezus out of targets since 1968!"

    Wondering what happened to your posts???
    Please take a moment to re-read the terms that
