    Default Luger Magazines

    What would be the most efficient way to try to find a numbers matching magazine for my 1942 Banner E/L? I realize that it is a long shot, but still possible.
    Also, is there a significant difference in overall value if the magazine is numbered the same as the pistol?
    Thank you in advance for your consideration.

    start by giving your serial number including the suffix. Cannot match it if no one knows the number. I have eagle L number 4422 spare magazine #2.

    I also have eagle F serial # 301 spare magazine #2.

    The Blue book will tell you that a matching mag adds about 50% of the base value of the pistol.

    Thanks for the replies. Looking for magazine number 6233y.
    Is this the best place to look? Is there a data base anywhere for mis-matched magazines?
    Thanks so much.

    Don Hallock put together a huge orphan magazine list. Sorry but I don't see your magazine on his list.
