Can somebody tell me what kind of G3 mag this is?  Most G3 mags that I've seen are parkerized and have some sort of marking,  but this one appears to be blued, no markings at all, but does not appear to one one of those cheap USA aftermarket mags judging from the stamping and construction. Appears to be made from the same gauge steel as the HK factory mags.  The spot welding is similar to that of HK, but not exactly the same. Also the magazine has a polymer follower instead of the typical steel/chrome ones. The stamping also appears somewhat sharper.  I've never seen anything like this before.

Is this a good mag? POS? what's the origin?

Here's a few pics

Could be a Pakistani made one.....that looks dead on for a German made one except the finish..

Asian made maybe?

Where did you get it?

Pakistani sounds like a logical guess, which asian countries use G3 variants?

My friend got 3 of these mags off of gunbroker.

Greek manufacture. Dead give away from the plastic follower.

Are these mags rare or worth anything? (wishful thinking)
