Can anyone identify this Magazine?

I've been all over the internet looking to identify this magazine. It came in a box lot at the last gun show. The rest were pretty typical S&W M&P, Beretta and Taurus but this one has me stumped.

It looks to be 9mm, holds 12 rounds and has absolutely no markings whatsoever.

Anyone have any ideas?

My SWAGS

One thing that stands out to me, is that it might to be a compact model and has a big brother. .....

Can you slide that base plate just to see if there is any stampings? Have you confirmed that it's a 9MM-family??? Might also be military issue. .. ..

Be Safe !!!

I've taken the thing apart and the only marking may be a "C" on the follower or it might be a scratch.

It has a plastic follower and the magazine insert is plastic as well.

What gets me is the baseplate that curves downwards. Very strange.

It does indeed hold 12 rounds of 9mm Para

Yep, Jennings - that weird cut in the front is a giveaway. Junk.

Is the circular hole on the right side a magazine catch hole? Pretty crude, if it is.

There is a lot of knowledge in here, I bet not many forums could find answers that fast.

Jimenez Arms JA-9. Not to be confused with the Bryco model 59, which is similar. Bryco 59 has a flat floor plate and no hole. Bryco 59 mags can be modified to fit JA-9 if you bend the floor plate and drill the hole.
