Early 1911 Magazine

1012 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  BOP222
Would anyone have a recommendation on where to look for an early 1911 magazine? Have recently come to own a Colt 1911, early 1913 manufacture and was looking to find a correct magazine (with lanyard loop) to go with it.

Any assistance in this would be appreciated. Thanks.

E-Bay. They show up there all the time. Either that or a big gun show. BTW is your gun a military or commercial? There were several types of early lanyard loop magazines, so if you can provide some info (like serial# range) I might be able to tell you what exact type to look for.

DSK, Thanks for the reply...it's a military issue, SN 245XX, best I can estimate production was after Jan (Rampent Colt no circle) but before Aug 1913 (Last patent date is Feb 14, 1911) Any further specifics on a correct magazine would be appreciated.
