Guys,

I am looking for photos of original model N magazines for each model change. I checked the web without any luck, including ColtAutos web site.

Colt Vest Pocket .25ACP, Model N Serial#171540

Disclaimer: I'm certainly no expert on these (or any others for that matter). This pistol came in the original serial# box. I can only assume it's the original magazine for the pistol. The pistol serial# 171540 which dates to 1917.

John Brunner's The Colt Pocket Hammerless Automatic Pistols gives detailed descriptions, dates of the changes, corresponding serial number ranges, and accompanying photos of all Model N magazine variations.
I just check the availability of Mr. Brunner's book for purchase and its's not available at this time. So can't look up my requested information in his book.

You might find one on one of the auction sites, or Ebay.
I'm thinkin' it is out of print.

Unfortunately, both first and second editions are out of print. But as wolfcoln points out, they surface all the time, and are well worth the investment.

I hope you get your pic's.
I'm all for reference books, but some are just priced out of reach for the casual enthusiast.

Two-tone, marked base, still pinned rather than crimped construction, this magazine is correct for sn 171540, 1917 production.
