View Full Version : Help ID UI Beretta magazine?

I have a NIB Beretta pistol magazine that isn't quite what I thought it was...I can verify that it ISN'T for a 92FS...

Same tube as the 92 mags, baseplate is longer toward the front (barrel) and not quite as thick as the 92. Mag catch cuts on both sides, but about a quarter inch too high (mag locks up sticking out of the mag well) for the M9.

The only markings are:
PB CAL.9 PARA - MADE IN ITALY
(and three witness holes in the back, labeled 5/10/15).

Any idea what this mag is for?


Thanks,
Alex

Possibly for the newer Cougar pistols?

Yep, definitely a Cougar 15-round factory mag. Rather strange, as it should have a date or LEO markings. Must have slipped through the factory...maybe an excess M9 tube fitted with the higher mag catch cuts and Cougar baseplate...

Who knows.

I just know that I have a mag I can't use. Ah, well.
