Regular PMAGs are made by Magpul. The green labels are made by Star under license.

Green Labels - ABS plastic, cannot disassemble, may have teething/break-in period, lighter, cheaper.
Magpuls - Nylon/fibreglass construction, can be disassembled, may have teething/break-in period, heavier, more expensive.

I use green label PMAGs in my SCAR-L, and Magpul PMAGs in my SCAR SSR.

My initial break-in with the green labels was a bit of a chore (10 mags, silly spray, load/unload), but they have run flawlessly since.

My Magpuls (SR25 PMAGs) are still being broken in - I have binding issues with the BB follower around some of the bends. Taking them apart isn't too back, but putting them back together can be a pain, especially with the spring being, well, springy.

I like both - and both can take your typical field beating. However, replacement of a lost green label isn't anywhere as painful as a lost Magpul...
