    Default 5 Unknown Magazines



    One says "Wilson Combat", the others don't say anything.

    Is it worth trying to sell "unknowns" or some way to figure out what they go to?

    Thanks

    Sell them, someone will know what they are. None look collectible. I always run across a mag or two
    that I have no idea what gun it fits.

    Not sure what the 4 double stack mags fit but my guess is the numbered ones are factory and the ones with one hole are aftermarket. Factory mags can go for a good price but not many people would want a used Mec-Gar magazine.

    What caliber? That could help narrow it down.

    I see ammo, so it should be easy to determine.

    The remaining magazine (Wilson Combat) looks like their 7 or 8 round 1911 magazine, should fit any full size 1911

    Specifically, that's an older Wilson Combat 47D 8 round 1911 mag. One of the best 1911 mags you can get. The other two being Tripp Research Cobra and Chip McCormick Power Mags.

    What Ronin said.
    You need to keep that mag for your upcoming 1911 purchase.

    Just throw them in a travel bag and forget about it. No need to stress over it. Maybe down the line, take a relaxing vacation for some sun & fun in Turks & Cacaos.
