Dont knw about the Merger mags,But the 3 factory Highcaps I have, have 3 or 4 holes on the sides of the mags on the bottem half of the mag. And none of them are marked in any way. I know they are factory because I opened the packages they came in from the factory.

The mags that came with my P89 had a metal/plastic or completely plastic floor plate with the Ruger emblem molded into them. I can't remember if there were any holes in them since I have not had the gun for several years.

Edited for spelling.

Well, my P89 mags that came with it were Ruger marked on the baseplate, and I know all factory packaged mags I've seen in the stores (pre- and post-ban) had the same marking on the baseplate. The aftermarket mags I bought early on, have no markings... hell they could be USA brand.

All the unmarked ones that I had for mine were aftermarket mags. I sold the gun and mags so I cant do any comparisons at the moment. I wish I had some more info for you. I will say that the SS ones that I had were all USA mags.

Kevin,my friend,I know your my friend because you contacted me with a deal before you went to market/boards with it.AnyHoo, you know more about mags than I,however, I do know that EARLY ruger factory HI-CAP(15)mags have a unmarked metal baseplate and are hard to distinguish from aftermarket.All P-series mags I've seen as "RugerFactory" have had 'grey' followers though, even the older ones....O' and I do not know about the "older" ones and the witness holes question.

Below is a pic of a factory P89. The second picture is blurry, but it does show the Ruger emblem outline. Come to think of it, I have never seen a Ruger mag without the emblem molded into the floor plate.
