    Hi Mike - they are seldom seen on the market, and I can't recall the last one I've encountered. Condition is everything, and I would expect a solid functioning one with good finish to bring $300 at the very least.

    Regards,
    Tony

    Thanks Tony, I bought 2 aftermarket mags for $80 several years ago. I have a line on 2 early occupation magazines for $125 each. Never yet seen a prewar one in person.

    One of them has a script lower case 'r' stamped on the back spine. Anyone know what that represents? Thanks.

    Those are good looking mags Mike. Appear to be in super shape. Sorry, I do not know what the "r" is other than some sort of acceptance mark.

    Thanks Tony, I received a good deal on them. The seller had priced them at $150 each but knocked off $25 as I had inquired about buying Vis magazines from him months ago and he never replied.

    He's a good fellow in my books. Very knowledgeable about the M1911A1 and U.S. webbing.
