8/2/18 - This is an original late WW2 P.38 magazine. The magazine frame is stamped P.38 "U" which means unhardened metal. These late war magazines are fairly scarce and desirable. The finish is thinning a little throughout the magazine, but this gives it a nice, used wartime look. The spring is strong and fully functional. Eagle/359 stamped on the spine. Guaranteed original and authentic.
