Default Mystery mags, please help

I picked up an 11 mag lot of 1911 mags for $129. I got 2 Scovils, 1 Colt-Scovil, 1 Colt, 2 USGI Checkmates, 1 KMT and 4 mystery mags.
Here are puctures of the mystery mags. Can anyone identify them?


Base plates from two with no markings.
The silver one on the right has part of the rubber bumper in picture 7 still glued to it.











The silver one has a rounded follower top.


The rubber bumper from the silver mags base plate.
There are no markings on the bumper.


10329 on the black magazine’s baseplate.
43706 on the silver magazine’s baseplate.


The silver one’s baseplate seems thicker than my other mags.


Both have pinned baseplates.


Both have pinned baseplates.



I uploaded these with my phone and need to get on a PC tomorrow to resize and flip the pictures.
I will also try to change picture 12 to a picture of the top back of the two magazines since the followers
don’t help much in identification.

Look like Argentine magazines. Strange skin color too.

BTT. I have flipped and resized the pictures. Anyone have any ideas on the first two mags?

They are both pinned base plates. With the serial nos., I would say probably Argentine.

Nice haul for the money!

Thanks. For now Iíll hold onto the modern commercial Colt, WWII Colt-Scovil, 2 WWII Scovils and the 2 USGI Checkmates.

However I have no use for the 2 Argentine mags, 2 mystery mags or the KMT mag so Iíll just sell or trade them. I still need a couple of General Shavers and I just bought a Glock 43 for my wife and need to add more nags to it too. The money or trading power would be of more use there.
