If you don’t find any, these magazines are very good quality and properly tempered. Consider getting the lip adjusting tool as well from them (second page)

Or this tool on eBay which is dimensioned as a feeler gauge for lip distance

There really isn't any way to tell a Victor magazine from any other post 106 models. I even used an HD magazine I picked up new and converted to fit. I also started with one magazine and just lurched over Ebay until I picked up a handful more for fair prices. Look for the 5 and 10 stamped on the body to determine age. These are all older mags with good steel. And they all work in my Victor/stein.

Did you get them from InterarmsTx?  
Check the thickness of the front lips compared to originals.  

As for what to keep an eye on:
 - start at 0.185" width between rear lips and see how they feed.  If the bullet nose hits low, open up the lips a couple thousandths.  If high, close them a couple thou.
 - Front lips should be about 0.230" between them, just a couple thou wider than the cartridge rim.
 - If the lips won't hold a dimension for more than a couple hundred rounds, they aren't correctly heat treated.  Original HS mags will have the "5" and "10" stamped next to the follower button slot where 5rds and 10rds would be.  The newer Interarms mags don't have the numbers, but the metal thickness is right and the lips are heat treated correctly to hold their dimensions once set.

The 5 and 10 marked are the good mags.  They will have a pastel green or white follower. 
Lime green and very dark green follower mags are KKK and junk.
Interarms new mags have red followers and seem to be OK
Houston mags have the pastel green follower but no 5 and 10 marks.  They are tough to make work, especially the earlier ones.

Original mags have taller front lips.  THAT is why they work so good.  I don't know why there is little acceptance of my mag adjusting that came from Joe Benner via LTC Miller.  Bend the front lips in to just kiss the flank of the cartridge to resist it raising too much.  Also do not "lower" the rear lips below parallel with the frame  rails.  You do not want the case base to move down on the slide face as it pushes on the rim.

Interarms also sells the mag adjustment tool. I bought one and it works well. I’d recommend it.
