Can someone please help me identify these magazines? I picked up a few of these in a package deal and I have no idea what they will fit.

A couple of them have a Cobray emblem. They measure 8.25 inches and are tapered from front to rear. The rear is wider than the front face. They appear to be 9 MM steel magazines with steel followers.
The rear face has a shallow rib which runs the length of the magazine. This rib has a notch about midway which obviously fits a magazine catch. There are no other provisions for a magazine latch.

I would be very grateful if someone could identify these magazines for me.

Thanks for your help,

Ken

Cobray emblem smacks of the Mac-11 SMG or its civilian counterpart.

Thanks for the info.
Do you know if the MAC10 and MAC11 magazines are interchangeable?

Looks very much like a submachinegun magazine, and from the taper, probably 9x19 NATO; 9mm Luger, if you prefer. Could easily be for a MAC.

The MAC 10 was chambered in .45 ACP and 9x19; the MAC 11 in .380 ACP (as best I recall) so I would not expect them to interchange.
