    image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg I found about six of these in a box in my garage, been there untouched for probably 20+ years. No idea what pistol it goes to. Holds 13 rds of 9mm. Any ideas?

    Looks like it might be for a Marlin Camp 9

    Yeah, I had noticed that also. I'm guessing "older" and "European" maybe, but other than that, I don't know. I am hoping that some knowledgeable guy here recognizes it!

    I looked for the Hi Power first. Can't seem to find any samples to confirm

    Not for a Hi-Power; the mousetrap mags have a protruding spring which pushes against the bottom of the grip frame/mag well to facilitate ejection, and the slot is in the wrong place. I'm thinking old Star, Llama? CZ? Perhaps third world or Orient mil contract that required heel butt release.

    Not my pics, found one on ArmsList, copied the pic for reference. Might try Googling Bryco 59, see if any pics have angles you can reference.

    I'm curious to see what else is in the boxes in your garage. :)
    Sounds like my garage, I keep surprising myself with unknown treasures I packed away decades ago.

    Might be cheap to buy a Bryco 59 for a few bucks and try these magazines.
    Then sell the gun and six mags for the same few bucks.
    Or just throw away the gun and sell the magazines for a profit. :rofl:
