P-38 Magazine ?

My P-38 ( '44 bring-back 41XX p ) magazine has NO markings. Have gone over it many times to make certain. Are ALL WWII magazines marked to pistol or there some void of any markings?

There are some. Look here: P38 Magazines

It will probably come down to welds, follower...
Milspec and SLYPRI like this.

I is your gun a Walther (AC) or a Mauser (BYF)? Could you take a picture if the spine and both sides of the magazine? The magazines in 1944 P.38's unless they were JVD mags should have P.38v on the side and an acceptance eagle over 359 for Walther or eagle over 135 for Mauser. Even the JVD mags had JVD stamped on the side of the magazine at a minimum. You may have a generic after market post war magazine but we need pictures to be sure of what it is.

Most of them have at least some markings which are often tiny and difficult to spot. However some of the magazines made by Erste Nordbohmische Metallwarenfabrik have none. There were probably thirty different variations made by different manufacturers before 1945 so we really need pics of both sides and spine to narrow it down.

I also found one of my WWII mags stamped on the bottom plate. But it had to be removed to see the waffenamt.
