    Default Luger Replacement Mag Study

    I have put together a pictorial of many of the Mauser era Luger replacement magazines. I would think there are other variations out there.
    If you have one not listed please post pictures but be sure yours is original and does not have a serial number that has been removed.
    I have put them in what I think is the order of production and it is open to correction.
    #1. S O37. Nickle body. 1934 K Date.
    #2. S/42 E/154. Nickle body. 1935 G Date. Does anyone have one without a serial number?
    #3. S/42. Nickle body. G Date- 1936.
    #4. S/42 DE/63 Nickle body. 1936-37.
    #5. S/42 SE/63. Blued body. 1937-39.
    #6. 42. Blued body. 1939-40.
    #7. 42 E/655. Blued body. 1939-40.
    #8. E/655. Blued body. 1940-41.
    #9. E/37. Blued body 122. Early 1940. I would think these were the first replacements for the new 122 bodies. Later on they left the bottom blank. I have only seen one other like this.
    #10. Blank aluminum bottom. 122 and FXO. 1940-42. There were un-numbered black plastic bottoms also in 1941-42.

    Tom,

    Here are the two replacement mag's I have. One is like your #2 and the other is like #5. I don't believe my #5 has ever been inserted into a pistol.

    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.

    Tom,

    That would be my guess, also. I assume that the Armorer's Kit came with a few complete, replacement mags and a few base plugs,not numbered, but with the S/42 and an acceptance stamp on them.

    I have a blank Eagle F police mag, if it helps as well.

    It would be way cool, fab even, if you could turn this into a downloadable pdf.
