M1 carbine 30 rounds magazine

Post by M67 »

Today, I had the opportunity to buy more magazines for my M1 carbine. I have 15 rounds magazine, so I bought 30 rounds. The seller from Germany had more. I took it from a wrapped paper. I photographed him on the original WW2 US Army shirt because of the olive color.
I wonder what time period this magazine belongs to, because there are no markings on it?

Thanks for the answer!

I am not enough of an expert on those to even think I can say I know positively ..

Buuut, if the magazine is not Stamped it is not GI.. I do know that there was some European companies that made some for export in the 1970s and they were not marked.. But that is just one I know of, I sure there has been many m1 carbine mags made over the years..

Thanks for your educative answers. So, nothing official. I thought it was a military magazine because it was so nicely packed. It will be for plinking. My little carbine will be happy.

I am always amazed how when someone it making a reproduction like that, they just do not go all the way and do it all... they come close and that is
good enough..
