    1911 Magazine Identification

    Is there a site or knowledgeable folks that can assist in identifying a small stash of mags I recently acquired.

    I’ll try to figure out how to post here if anyone could be of assistance.

    Thanks!

    Jason

    I was told the ones with 2 “drain holes” in the base plate were Springfield, just trying to get general age or if any are more collectable so I can take them out of rotation.

    I see some of the colts have the horse stamp. Some don’t. Some are sterile brushed bases. Just curious what those were. Etc , etc.

    None of them with my limited knowledge are 1911, instead are 1911A1’s. I own an original 1911 mag. It is two toned. Bottom half is blued, top half is unfinished steel.

    Usually 1911 magazines with 2 holes in the base plate are IPSC magazines and the holes are there for the installation of rubber bump pads.

    IPSC utilizes rapid mag changes and when the mags drop free they are often damaged when landing on the ground or concrete floor.

    As to them being "Springfield" circa WW1 military as opposed to current commercial I suppose that they could have had loops in the base plate which have been removed, but unlikely.

    8 round magazines are strictly commercial so far as I'm aware.

    I appreciate the responses!!! I’m glad to hear they’re users, so to the range bag they go!!! I hate being the “FNG” asking ignorant questions, but hopefully I’ll learn a few things while here.

    Agreed with LE and BAR. They all look like commercial magazines bought/collected from various sources over time. Seem to be in good condition too.
