    That makes sense because if a soldiers original magazines were lost or damaged they had to be replaced with something.

    Nice collection of magazines Klaus. You have an un-numbered S/42 E154 so it is good to know they exist.
    One that might be missing from my group is a B90 replacement. Anyone have one of those?

    Serial number 2317q is earlier 1941 production when Lugers were issued two matching magazines. The black plastic fxo is a good and correct replacement. Your magazine still has value even with the 104.

    It is a first variation 1937 S/42 with a "q" suffix. These would have strawed small parts but as they are blued on this gun it is more evidence of a reblue.

    The 1939 S/42's that went to the Police are a mixed bag. I have seen the matching magazines with 1 and 2 and I have seen them with + and no mark. So I don't see any pattern.

    Pat, I see your S/42 E/154 has a serial number like the others I have seen. Maybe the policy was to renumber those to the new gun when they issued the replacement.

    It is a fairly common 1941-42 fxo magazine. When Mauser stopped numbering magazines in 1941 they went to the black plastic bottoms and they also had the remaining stock of unmarked aluminum bottoms.

    Jerry,
    For a short period of time in the middle of the 1940 "a" suffix the E/37 was stamped near the mid-line of the bottom.

    Aluminum Magazine Bottom Damage

    I wonder what caused the damage to this 1940 Luger magazine. There is no damage to the magazine body.
    Doesn't look like your basic water corrosion.:( Any opinions?

    Going by the "42" on the sideplate and what looks like a repair depot stamp on the extractor I would say it's a spare parts gun put together after 1942. Yes interesting gun.

    Luger Storage/Carrying Container

    I just picked up a couple of these 5 gal buckets from Lowes for $6.98 each. 20 Lugers in their bore stores will fit perfectly. Some of you big collectors could get 9 or 10 of them for cheap!
