    Please compare your mag with these four, they are also without holes.

    Hello Gianluigi,

    I don't have it here because I'm at the office, but it looks like the one at the bottom of the picture. It doesn't have the holes for bullet count though.

    I noticed anyway that this mag looks exactly like the one posted by Bill?

    Hi Matt, the four magazines are all for Sten 9mm, with or without holes. Can you try a bullet to check if it is .45 or 9mm?

    Yes I can check that! I will do it after work
    Sten would make more sense, since they were supplied to partisans

    Yes, this is exactly what I think. Can you say where it was found?

    I just checked and tested it with one ammo from my licensed 1911 and the .45 case is too large to fit. I tested it with a 9mm and it is perfect.

    It's a strange one Matt! Personally I still think it's an MP40 mag. If not it must be a Sten.

    I've got both a sten and Mp40 mags, and the only apparent difference is the holes up the side of the Sten and is slighty chunkier than the mp40 mag.

    Sten - 38mm
    Mp40 - 32mm

    Mine is probably the same underneath the rust!

    I think it's an MP40 Mag mate! Final answer!!

    25,000 U.S. M3 machine guns were made in 9x19mm for the OSS. Could this be a 9mm M3 mag dropped to the Yugo rebels by the OSS?

    It sure looks like an M3 mag.....
