Yes, I posted in the Luger forum. But because I'd like a response I'll also ask here.

Does anyone have a good resource for them? It has a grey metallic bottom, markings look like a TA, and a 21 in the middle.

Possibly a Swiss proofmark?

The "T" might be a "+" ?

Almost all of the WWII era ca 1934 to 1944, including the G and K date Lugers, had aluminum bases, with the 4 digit serial number, including a letter (so, technically, 5 'digits') There were also some proof marks; 1 or 2, IIRC

From memory, one year, probably 1944, had magazines with a black plastic base. I can't recall if the bases were serial numbered, but my educated guess is that they were.

Your Luger magazine could predate the '5 digit' serial number series, of the WWII era, or may be an aftermarket magazine.

You must realize that Lugers were in production for about 50 years, production in the millions, and the variants on the pistols, and the magazines, are nearly endless.

I bought a Luger in the 1980's, and read several books on them, but i was only interested in the WWII models, so my knowledge previous to that era is slim at best....andI'm going strictly on memory, from about 25 to 30 years ago, on the WWII models, as well.
