    Default Pistol mag... but what pistol is it from?

    Hello found this on a UK military camp used in WW1 (only by British troops). At first I thought it was a harmonica but after i cleaned away some of the crud I realized it was a pistol mag!! Initially I thought it looks like a colt .45 mag but its way too small for that maybe even sub 9mm? See pics for scale sorry I dont have a .45 mag to compare but they are defiantly alot bigger.

    Hi Badger! Not really my area but I would hazard a guess at it being a magazine for a 32 or 380 ACP caliber Browning 1910. As pictured below. Cheers, Sean.

    I'd agree-not a British service weapon but they were widely used in Europe including the Germans after the occupation of most of Belgium-could have been a souvenir.

    Could be anything. Very hard to tell from the state it is in. Could even be a Spanish 7.65mm Ruby clip.

    Thanks that was helpful. I might clean it some more to see how many holes are in the mag to get better idea what it came from but I might leave it as I now know its not from an issued pistol but more likely a souvenir or private purchase and thats good/interesting enough for me.

    It could also be a Webley Scott Auto mag.

    The mag is both too small and too 'slanted' for a .455 Auto Webley mag.

    I was thinking more like the pre war .32 autos. That would match the size of the 1910 mag.
