8/2/17 - This is an original Mauser Luger magazine from early/pre WW2. The magazine is in great condition with no rust or pitting on the tube. The front of the magazine has a little bluing loss, but no major issues. The right side of the magazine has a minor indent along the spring slit. This is a minor dent and hard to see in photos. The base of the magazine is aluminum with serial number 1098m with a "+" sign and droop winged eagle/63 military proof stamped. The spring is strong and fully functional. Guaranteed original.
