The metal-bottom magazines with the slot only on the right side of the magazine went out of production about 1971ish when the grip frame was redesigned. (Your grip frame is unmarked but is called the A54 style after the part number on the factory schematic.)

The metal-bottom magazines with slots on both sides went out about 1982 when the Mark II was released.

The current production Mark II magazines ship with the follower button on the left side of the mag body but can be easily converted by switching the follower button to the other side.

You might want to preserve that original A54 magazine for its collector value and use the readily available Mark II mags to shoot.

Current Mark II magazine, as shipped:

Brownells and shopruger appear to be out, but these seem to be in stock at CDNN Sports.
