So I ordered one Pro Mag after market mag for a No. 4.  I ended up with four un-issued military surplus mags complete with the Canadian Army broad arrow stamp.  Being the honest type I phoned the seller and will send them back on his dime.  The Pro Mag goes for $C37 and the originals for $C80 each.  Some poor person in the warehouse is probably going to catch it Ouch

You are a very honest person! Many owners would have just kept the originals. Good karma coming your way!

I bought 20 magazines from Tradex and they all ended up being reproductions and poorly made Chinese units at that. They made me and others who ordered them and returned them pay for the shipping! The locking spine extended up into the channel where the rounds would be normally fed out of, the platform springfeed ramp wasn't attached correctly, the auxiallry spring didn't match up to the tab and the overall appearance looked to be made to seem as if the magazines had seen service or poorly stored. Not a happy camper to say the least!
