    I know little of 1911s I am just learning myself. Congrats on the new purchase. As far as a spare mag you could probably walk into a gun store and find one that fits. I think they are fairly standard. There are of course different qualities but its really all about how it functions in your weapon.

    If that is complete serial number you have a really early production.

    We really need pictures...

    I think if he got that early of a 1911 he would know it, because of the price tag (unless he got it from some old lady or something)

    Please put up some pictures of it, sounds like an awesome find. Magazines for 1911s are pretty easy to find, lots of companies making them, I am not sure about which ones are best, but there are literally dozens of companies making them. For my pistols I always try to buy Mec-Gar magazines when I can, they are always flawless, they are reasonably priced, they are OEM magazines for many manufacturers, the list of positives with them goes on and on.
