Looking at some PW made 15rd carbine mags on an auction. I have read there are two versions, one that will hold the bolt bolt open after the last round and one that won't. Seller doesn't have a rifle to check with. Is there a way to tell by looking at the mag? Thanks

The hold open follower type is on the right...


The bolt hold open on an M1 Carbine as designed is a manual detent on the slide.

Hey thanks for that pic. Found a semi local shop selling them for $10 NIW so I may take a ride and pick up a few. Was hoping to get a couple of the hold open type just to try out
