    Hi Dave, I have Ku 3657, LZA proofed, with matching black plastic bottom numbered mag. Grips are wood. Safety lever is numbered to gun but is STRAW finish, not salt blue (as most tend to be). Gun is 98%+ condition.
    Regards,
    Kelly

    Kelly... Thanks for the NEW Ku number. What is the date and toggle code??? Any chance you could post pictures of the bottom of the mag ?? Is the SN on the L/H side of the receiver larger than the number on the front of the frame. This is good stuff and really is what this study is all about..... I appreciate you joining in....

    Thanks to member Snipershot 1944 (David Chandler) I have added 1533Ku to the list. It comes with a alum numbered mag that is really interesting to this study as well as the one on Black Bottom Mags.

    It looks to me that this is numbered in exactly the same way that the "heat stamped" black plastic Ku mags are numbered and I wonder if the same equipment may have been used to do both types of mag bottoms.

    Do not know if the melting temps of the alum and black plastic mag bottoms are close enough and would sure appreciate any comments from anybody who might know.

    Am posting a excellent picture that David was kind enough to send below and will attempt to do a comparison over on the Black Mag Bottom study...

    Can't speak to the "heat stamped" black plastic mags, but the "1533 +" on David's aluminum mag bottom has been pantographed.
    If it is made after 1918...it is a reproduction.

    Ron... Is it possible that business end of the pantograph machine could have been either for heat stamping or cutting ?? I see a lot of similarties in the size and placement of 1533+ numbers and "+" and many of the black plastic examples submitted.
