It came from Century. Part of their Austrian Mag deal. http://www.lizardking.org/image/mag.jpg

I didn't know the "Austrians" made inch guns

I have seen some mags with the metric tab and the inch type floorplate. Someone had a couple on the board--I think they came with a couple R-1 kits.

Reports from RKIs indicate South Africa did use these some. In addition, Stevens indicates the Libyans also used this mag.

Metric, but definitely NOT Austrian.

All the R1 kits I've bought came with these kind of mags. Haven't tried any yet though.
seems like they would work well as a fit all type mag to carry with inch or metric rifles.

Well, cant see the front of the mag in the pic, that would answer the question once and for all :p

I think he's curious as to why he got the 'weird floorplate' attached to the metric body. I think my magazine (one of several I got from Cliff Brown at Dixie Ammo Dump) is identical his.
