rj,

Do you mean .38 Super magazines? If so, I'd stick with magazines made for your particular semi-automatic. And these can be purchased at gun shows or on-line from companies such as Wilson, McCormick, etc.

Best regards, Jack M.

rj,

Amazing the things one learns. I've seen S&W N-frame revolvers chambered for .45 ACP, but never have seen a semi-auto chambered for a revolver cartridge like .38 special.

Was the Colt pistol modified for this cartridge, or was it manufactured that way? How does the magazine handle the cartridge rims? Is there a slot in the rear?

Best regards, Jack M.

Here's what it looks like:


I don't think anyone makes these mags currently because there isn't a great demand for them. I bought 2 extra mags for my .38 spl MR from the gun auction websites, they turn up every now and then.

I just remembered, you should also try Numrich Gun Parts Corp.

The Colt NM Mk III may look like a standard 1911, but internally it is very different. It is a blowback operated pistol, it does not lock up using the Browning system.

I don't know of anyone making magazines for this pistol today. Further, the slide lock tab on the float of the original magazines is rather frail.

Phil Stewart, a dealer in magazines, usually has a number of original magazines in a range of conditions varying from pristine to repaired. The magazines are scarcer than hens teeth, and the prices asked reflect this fact.

His phone number is (740) 393 0704, though he can be very difficult to catch.

Tell Phil that I gave you his name.
