Wilson Combat 1911 45 mags with a ball bearing?

Local online firearm classified seller getting rid of his 1911 45 magazines. All 8 rounders. A few I purchased were my tried and true CMC Power Mag with extra power springs, and a few are Wilson Combat 8 round 45 1911 mags I am unfamiliar with. I've owned Wilson 47D but the mags purchased this morning have a ball bearing in the follower (back section). Price was good so I snagged them but they are obviously not my 47D.

Which model of WC mag did I purchase?

Very early Wilson followers had bearings.

To keep the top round properly position all the way back, or what?

Those mags with the ball bearing are 20+ years old, the bearing was to keep the top round from creaping forward during recoil.

They will work fine if the slide stop ledge is not chewed up.
They will probably need springs, though.
