I received a box of assorted ammo from a friend and theses two types of magazines were in the box. I am looking to sell or trade them eventually but in order to do that I need to learn a little more about them.

The first four (4) are marked FN and 9mm underneath that. I know they are for a 380 auto because 9mm don't fit and in the ammo he gave me there were a few boxes of 380. I would guess that these mags hold 6 or 8 rounds.



The second two (2) magazines are not marked and are for a 25 auto. These things are tiny and probably only hold 6 or 7 rounds.


I will take additional pictures and post them if it helps. So if you know make, model, value or any other pertinent information about these mags let me know. Thanks.

Those .25's look like they could be for a Colt 1908 'vest pocket'. If so, they would probably be worth $30-40.


Actually, it looks like prices have gone up

9mm corto is another name for .380 auto, thats why those mags are marked 9mm.

sephy you are right about the one on the right with the 5 holes. It has the same markings as the one in the gunbroker auction. I feel like a dork for not looking on the bottom of them. I would imagine the other one is just a different brand of the same magazine.

G force I did not know that. Thank you for clarifying. Any idea of what they go to?

Possibly for a Browning model 1955 in 9mm x 17mm (.380ACP) or an earlier variant of that design -- the 1910 or 1922. Should hold 6 rounds. The GCA of 1968 ended import of that lineage.

Thanks jake. Judging from the pictures that I saw, it looks like that is the correct model for these magazines. Thanks again Calguns.
