View Full Version : Mystery Magazine

December 18, 2006, 01:09 PM
I recently purchased items from a auction for a store that went out of the gun business, this magazine was one of the items in a box lot. It is totally unmarked, the shape at the top looks like it could be BERETTA or WALTHER? But I'm not sure, at first I thouhgt it was for a handgun, but I guess it could be for some type of rifle? Its about 3/4 inch thick which means it could be staggered? Also that raised part in the base doesn't look familiar. Any ideas?

How long is it? The top looks like a BHP mag, but 3/4" rules that out. Maybe a .380/.32 ACP mag. It does look familar though.

I pictured it with a ruler, its a little over 6 inches

That is too long for the average pistol (a standard .45 1911 magazine is only 4.6" long). I suspect something like a pistol caliber carbine (Marlin, High Point, Beretta, etc.). What caliber does it seem to be for?

I gave it to a fellow at our sportsmans club he said it looks like a 40, he took it home to check the caliber.

I agree I don't think it is for a pistol, I got on line and looked a clips for the HI-POINT, MARLIN & BERETTA RIFLES and none appeared to be a match?

Looks like a 30 round Beretta 92 Magazine to me. I measured one of my mags and it is .81 inches thick.

I went to a gun show today, several people tried it in their Beretta's, it went in but would not latch. Some else thinks it might be a TAURUS?
