9/1/17 - This is an original WW1 era Navy style Luger magazine. The magazine has a wood base with concentric circles on either side. Additionally, the base is crown/M stamped with a serial number running horizontally down towards the spine. This is correct and all original. The magazine base has some minor damage on the "ears" but this is normal. The frame is excellent with no rust or pitting. The spring is strong and fully functional. Guaranteed original.
