Ok I have a mystery that needs solving. My father-in-law passed along this magazine to me. I assumed it was a PPK/PPS mag. It seems to have wear on the bottom of it, leading me to also believe it was for a heel mag release version?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

It's a wartime (Walther Zella-Mahlis) magazin made for the Walther PP. The only magazine type in 7,65mm made for bottom release I know was for the PDM contract (pre war).

Looks like a P-38 mag to me.
It does say cal 9m/m....but the witness holes are offset not in a line line most P-38 magazines I've seen...

Thanks Martin. The Mag is stamped 9mm. I thought that meant .380?

Ups, my fault... Sorry!
Yes .380 (9mm kurz). The 9mm version of the PP was equipped with the bottem mag release.

So, consensus is that this mag is for a pre-war PP in .380? I've been studying photos evereywhere and I can't find one that looks like this one with the "solid" follower. When the follower is installed you can't see any gaps. This is different form every other PP/PPK mag I have seen. The 7 witness holes also seems odd.
Thanks for everyone's help on this.

It would be useful to show both sides of the magazine. If it has a hole for button-release engagement, the other side is where it would be.

I'll take some more pictures tonight. They also turned out pretty dark. Maybe I'll try out a real camera instead of my phone... :rolleyes:

I've definitely seen other pre-war followers of that design in pictures, while looking for a pre-war 9mmK ppk magazine.
