    did you check gun parts corp. (numrich)? i would also buy a copy of shotgun news. they have many vendors selling old clips and magazines. good luck, i hope you find one for that great little gun.

    I just bought a couple of brand new original Colt magazines for the same gun at a gun show in Reno. I'm sure you can find them on line. The mag dealer I bought from had over 30 new in package so I don't think they are uncommon or hard to find.

    I think I can guarantee that if someone has 30 "original Colt" magazines for the .380 caliber Model 1908, they are neither original nor Colt. There are some good repros out there and some bad ones but original Colt magazines will run from $75-120 and you don't find stacks of them at a gun show. (The "Colt" marking means nothing, whether on M1908 magazines or M1911 magazines. Colt lost that trademark battle when the makers simply noted that "Colt .45" and "Colt .380" identify the gun/cartridge, not the maker of the magazine.
