Well I finally unwrapped one of the well wrapped magazines and they appear to be 9mm. Guess I will have to see what they fit.

They are 10 inches long, an inch wide and 1 1/2 inches deep and weigh 13 ounces and are extremely strong.

I cleaned off some lettering and it says SPW GL and a C-serial of 6 numbers. Thr steel is double strength near the top.

Empty it is as strong as a billy club. I will have to find some 9MM to try in it

Are the mags single-position feed, or two-position?

I have 17 Grease gun new wrapped magazines in the original wooden crate with some rubber tips. Make a reasonable offer 45 acp ones I was in error that they were 9mm and they are 2 position feed. I had a senior moment in looking at them. JP
