Just wondering if USGI actually means that the part was originally built for the military??

or does it just mean built to mil standards?

It means "U.S.Govt Issue"

as far as I'm concerned, it means built for and purchased by the military.

it means

ordered by the government at twice what it should cost, and produced by the lowest bidder using the cheapest possible materials to meet the spec.

It's a shame the poor girl didn't use the USGI mags to beat some sense into the moron reporterette's empty head.
