Just got two new HK45 magazines from MLSECPRO, arrived right on time.

Just one question, why is the "MADE IN GERMANY" on one stamped (Like those that came with the gun) and why does one appear to have it laser etched on?

I have a picture but have never posted a picture before so help with that as well would be appreciated.

Only one of the mags that came with my gun was stamped. The extra and the two I bought after have the gold looking print. Don't know why.

Though I have no proof I really think they are outsourcing more and more

they could have updated the magazine manufacturing section of their factory in Germany with the same laser etching that is used on their firearms.

I think it is that simple as, that there are two differnet production batches and they simply changed the way they mark them.

Did you take them appart and look if there is a date stamp on one of the plastic parts??

Actually I just did that myself with a HK45 magazine and no date stamps.
Interesting however, the pusher as well as the floor plate had .45C stamped in them.
I knew already that you USPc .45 took the HK45 mags. It makes sense that HK uses "old" parts.
