    Left (8 rounder) - No step on follower and feed lips not pinched
    Middle (10 rounder) - Stepped follower with pinched feed lips
    Right (10 rounder 9mm Comp Mag) - No step on follower and pinched feed lips

    Fortunately, all of the above magazines have functioned flawlessly without any modifications in both my 995 and my 9mm Compensated.

    FIRST!!! lol

    I think I can get an LRHO notch in the ProMag 15 rounder, worth a try for scientific information IMO

    I didn't know there were two different 10 round mags. I have two of the ones on the far right but that is what the gun shop gave me when I asked for a ten rounder. My 9mm is not a comp.

    The differences are old vs new, and carbine 10 vs pistol 10.

    You have a mix of different models, different years, and we really can't draw any conclusions.

    But it's a good start. I'll try to get some pics of my various mags. No way to tell what guns they came with, I've been mixing and matching for a while.

    Update to a very old post. I have traded off all but two 8 round C9 mags for 10 round comp mags or 10 round 995 mags. I do still have the original 10 round C9 comp mag that came with my original C9 comp. This mag has the biggest variation of differences from the newest 10 round C9 mag.

    My original mag has a different style mag extension, no Hipoint stamping on the mag body and the rear of the follower is sloped and not stepped as all the newer mags are and it has a small notch where the spring is visible.

    Old original 10 round C9 mag to the far left. Newest Hipoint C9 10 round mag second from the left and two identical C9 10 round mags with no Hipoint stamping on the mag body are the last two on the right.

    All my C9 and 995 mags top view. All have the same follower/feed lip combination with the exception of the one C9 10 round mag.

    Like Ajole said, age. Hi-Point is constantly making design changes. But much like classic VW Beetles the changes are so subtle most people don't notice.
