    Side bottom back corner says 45 ACP made in Taiwan and the follower has a star with lines going to a point behind it to make it look like a shooting star?

    That might be a cheap knock off then. Mine all look like the one pictured.

    Well some have suggested that it is a knock off upgraded with McCormick parts but McCormick sells that follower for $7.66 if you buy the spring and the follower it is $15.47 either way I cannot see some one upgrading a magazine with McCormick Parts and sell it for ten bucks even if it was just the follower added. This is really odd.

    Maybe the "made in Taiwan" in big letters on the Mag let's you know you've been ripped off:confused:
