The photos are stock photos - they do not represent the magazine you will receive. The finish on the magazines may vary as well depending on the model of magazine. In certain instances the magazines may show minor wear from where they were inserted into a pistol. Some of the magazines were swapped out of firearms because the capacity was greater than allowed in the destination state of the firearm they came from. In those instances, the magazines may have been test fired in the original firearm at the factory by Sig. Other than that the magazines would not have been used.
