Nice examples of magazines that were used up through 1943.

I would not recommend using these mags for range use, I notice they have a tendency to develop "stress cracks" at the rear of the magazine behind the follower where the slide impacts when closing

save them for collecting and use cheap GI Vietnam era mags for the range use
