Article about: Hello Glymov, mag looks different ; it is a closed mag, and it doesn't have the spring catcher for speedloading in front as the one I found ...

    Question relic mag to ID

    anyone could help to ID this mag?
    it look like a 9mm mag but it's too big for a handgun. Found last year in an area of minor scraps between germans and partisans and later utilised by british and american soldiers...

    I think it is for a Beretta SMG.

    Hi Dimas, not for a Browning HP. I have one

    Cheers, Ade.

    I don't think it's a pistol mag ; if you look at it, you'll see it has a kind of pin for pulling down the spring inside for faster loading. Not sure that it can be inserted in a pistol mag catcher...

    x Ade : I checked that..it's not. But it might be a german variant, since they used it...

    Would you guys exclude any US or british SMG?

    Hi Matt, certainly nothing British. We basically had the 9mm Sten gun (again I have a couple of these ) Not a US M1 Thompson or M3 "Grease Gun" mag either.

    Did you try this on WAF Firearms forum? I recall seeing one of these before?

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Ade,
    yep, I posted it last year, but nothing sure came up.

    problem is also the area... just to give you a brief idea :

    for about 300 years here we were part of austro-hungarian empire. from 1918-1943 Italy, 1943-1945 annexed to Germany, from 1945 to 1954 under Allied Military Government (British and US). From 1954 till now...Italy again. You can immagine how many armies passed here. The place where I found the mag was formerly a shooting range (you could find napoleonic buttons as well!), mainly used by austro hungarians. Later on, in the 30's , it was used by italians for a short period. In 1945, germans fought there against the incoming tito's partisans and few weeks later were detained in a small perimeter. from 1947, allied troops used the area for training and to show muscles to the yugoslav neighbours. So you could find anything from a WW1 case to a US collar badge
