    .40 S&W Pistol Mag IDs Needed.

    Came across these in an ammo can up in the attic. The 2 stainless ones are single stack, 8 or 10 rders and the blued one is double stack, looks like 10 or 12 rd. NO idea what they are other than .40 S&W as there were a few rounds in each.

    Anyone... anyone...?

    Two on the left Kahr. Not sure of model but they typically fit multiple. Probably CW40 or P/PM 40. Judging by the holes they're 7 rounders, possibly 8 but I don't remember if those base plates are a +1 or just different from typical flush fit


    The double stack one is harder. Possibly a S&W 3rd gen, maybe Beretta

    I was thinking that but S&W were always silver and blued were often aftermarket and had names.

    Cheers, guys. I really appreciate this. Here's a couple more detailed shots of the 3d one...

    What's that say on the side? "9mm para made in Italy"?


    Looks an awful lot like a Beretta 92 compact. Are you sure it's a 40sw?

    But then again it also looks like a Taurus, possibly 840 compact. What does it say on the side?

    There’s definitely no markings on it. I put both .40 and 9mm in it. They both seem to fit fine.

    The only mags I can think of that look like that are Beretta, Taurus, XD, S&W steel guns.

    But all XD are stainless and have witness holes in the back.

    MecGar aftermarket have their name on it (maybe older ones didn't). I believe ProMag has their name on it too.

    S&W also has their logo and more than two witness holes. Most were stainless as well but aftermarket could be blued.

    However this is for a 9mm. Their 40sw guns had longer mags for full size and the compacts were all single stack

    Sure does look like those 3 stainless mags, minus the finish off course. Are those your mags or is that a stock photo?

    Stock. I don't have a 69 but I do have a 5906, which is just a full size version.

    However, I just tried a 40sw in both a Beretta 92 and a SW5906. They both work but In the 5906 the bullet doesn't look right sitting there. The front is facing up while the back of the bullet is angled more down and has a gap between the brass and the feed lips. The same bullet in the 92 looks perfect, like it was a 40sw mag

    If you think this thing will work in one of your heaters pm me an address and I'll just send it off to you. I don't even own anything in .40 S&W.

    Thanks, I appreciate the offer but I too don't have anything in 40 nor do I have anything like that in compact. My smallest gun is a G19

    4013 is a single stack 8 round mag. Looks completely different. In 40sw the only double stack S&W 3rd gen had was the 4006 which was full size 11 rounds..

    here is a 4013
