    The witness openings are the same as Metalform's, check for a small "M" on the base plate.

    Thanks, guys. No markings at all on the magazine. I'll post more pics this weekend.

    More pics. After reading through the entire thread, it seems most likely this is a Norwegian mag, but the finish is not rough at all. More pics later

    It could be a modern reproduction. Someone was selling such magazines as of a few years ago but I don't remember where I saw them offered.

    That doesn't look like a pinned floor plate to me. The photo looks like it's spot welded.

    I don't believe it Norwegian. The Norwegians normally have more "V" shaped loops and the baseplates normally show side-to-side chatter from machining. Also, the corner of the feed window in the first photo normally a sharper corner without radius. The poster says it has full length pin tunnels and I see evidence of pins in the last photo and the bottom edge smoother than the typical Norwegian.

    Difficult to say for certain without personal inspection but I think most likely a Colt magazine sandblasted and reblued. Is the spring in the white or blue?

    I think OD* is the internet winner for this one, and Hawk was circling the field!

    The first photo shows evidence of a circular rub mark finished over. That rub mark due to the snap in the early USGI magazine pockets.
