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

You may want to check in the Smithy forum for a quicker response.

This *may* be for an 8000-series Cougar, which also holds 15-rd of 9mm. You can check with the folks on the Beretta maillist to be sure. For information on Beretta-L, visit

The Beretta people have just finished their new website - it's not "public" yet but you can find it at:
http://212.210.181.143/default.htm

Check the tab for "pistols" and look at the Cougar listing. That may be all you need to do.
