    Don't know where you got that, I owned three from all three eras of manufacture and none of the many magazines had any oiling pads.

    In the years gone by I did come across a supply of 15 rd mags that all had hold open followers. I was told at one point they had been done as a post Korea refurb...but haven't seen them since.
