    The short answer is yes. The following is a list of contractors that supplied magazines to Colt for issue with the Model 1911. Magazines made by Colt, of course, had no markings.

    Tom is 100 percent correct. In fact we do not see the Haenel 122 stamped magazine until maybe February 1940. The initial 1940 production was Type 2 SE655 marked. The 3-MM-122 magazine is first...

    Seriously Norme, no jest!!!

    There are about 3500 B90 S91 marked G-dates. Out of the total 59,000 or so G-dates produced.

    You can verify in The Mauser Parabellum 1930-1946 if you wish.
