6/2/20 - This is an original Mauser Luger magazine from WW2. The aluminum base is stamped with a serial number, "+" sign, and eagle 655 military proof stamp. The base is somewhat separated from the tube, leaving a small gap between the frame and "ear" of the base. This doesn't affect functionality, just a cosmetic issue. The price is adjusted accordingly. The base pin is still in tact though. Spring is strong and functional. The blued tube has some light thinning but no major issues.
