    Can you ID this magazine?

    This is a .380 magazine a friend handed to me, without pedigree. No markings on it at all, but the manufacturing method seems unique, especially with the front of the mag. Capacity is 6, maybe 7 (only have 6 .380 rounds on hand!). Can anyone positively ID the mag as to what gun it belongs to?

    Yes that is a 6 round magazine to a walther ppk .380 pistol, they will probbably not feed a PPK-S due to a slight difference in the feed lips. If you have a PPK, it will work great in it and the finger rest makes the pistola easier to grip

    Yeah, it does look crappy. I'd go more along the Lorcin, High Point etc way instead of PPK.

    Yup, thats what it is a Lorcin/Cobra mag. I'll bet my next pay check.

    I think we have a winner, I would never had guessed that POC looking thing was current production....the gun made out of staples and paper clips?

    I'm going to guess one of the little Berettas. I have a 950 in .25 auto and it looks very similar, but the finger rest doesn't look quite right.

    Interesting replies. I seriously doubt it's for a Walther, certainly not OEM, based on relatively cheesy quality.

    Tell you what: show me a pic of the same mag for a gun you own, and this one is yours for the cost of postage.

    Wow! $22 for that thing? I would have guessed more like $10. It almost looks like something designed to go in a toy gun.
