Can anyone tell me what year this Colt mag was made, approx...?

It came with a recent purchase but I don't think it is period correct as it has the "pinned base"...don't know when they stopped making these but I am sure it was before the '60's.

BTW - It's a good mag, feeds fine!!

Anyone know when Colt stopped pinning the mag bases? Also, anyone have a pic of a 1960's magazine?



Thanks

Commercial mag

It is Colt Commercial magazine used 1937-1942. Beware of fakes...look for the "flat" O's for one feature of a real one. I would say yours has been sand blasted or pitted as originally they were polished blue. Here is a photo of one I have. Regards.

Thanks

The body of the magazine is a polished blue but the base is a flat blue...so I don't know what the deal with that is, seems authentic, but...fake maybe...??

Here is the magazine body...
