    Can you guys help me identify this mag? It is not a 1911.

    Looks like a full size 3rd gen S&W 8 rounder, trying to track down which ones were 8 or more... most were 7 rd iirc

    S&W was not ambi, but another pic I found shows the mag catch
    right near the same location, if you can trust the witness holes
    for the round counters as being consistent in location. Could be
    a generic aftermarket S&W mag, I'd love to try that in my 457 ;)

    7 round version, check the mag catch placement:

    Looks like a match to me, on catch placement... ;)

    My guess: S&W 4506, one BAMF! ;)

    Has a catch on both sides. That right? This is to thick to fit in a 1911 mag well.

    I think this might be an aftermarket mag for the S&W

    I heard the 1006 was a hell of a pistol. I would like to see one.

    It is the Holy Grail of MOLE, maybe my "White Whale" :eek:
    The 4506 would be a suitable foil, until I could get the 1006 ;)

    DANE, I am convinced that is an aftermarket 4506/4516 magazine...
    Might fit something else, and it also looks like the pistols could be
    converted to a lefty mag release. Just like most other handguns!
