Picked up some AR 30rd magazines in trade with a member here and was looking for info on them, mainly because they fit and feed like dog crap. They have ZERO markings on them at all. They fit very tight into the magwell but they do lock in. Also the followers do not engage the bolt catch, from looking at them there is nothing on the back side to engage it, more like some kind of ramp to feed over it. Also they are nothing that Ive been able to find online.

Are they steel? I think those are FN FNC magazines or possibly CETME-L magazines, which I think look the same or similar to the FNC mags.

They are known to fit a little tight in most AR lowers and as you discovered the follower does not engage the BHO. I read that the stock steel follower can be replaced with a magpul anti-tilt follower for normal GI mags. That will get the BHO working. Maybe they could be sanded a bit to loosen up the mag well fit?

Could also be Dawoo magazines for their full auto guns?
Some mags just suck... try a known good follower and spring and see what happens.
