    Help ID'ing Magazine

    Found this among my dad's stuff. It's a .32ACP mag, he didn't have a .32ACP gun when he died. But over the years I know he had the following .32s: Dreyse 1907, CZ 27, CZ 50, CZ 70 - I suspect this is for a CZ70, which I think was the last .32 he had. Whatever this is for - it's a heel release gun.

    I'm hoping the PF Hive can help me ID this, so I know what gun to buy to fit it.

    CZ50/70 magazines have a plastic finger-groove baseplate similar to a G26 mag, and the witness holes are on the left side of the mag not the right. It's been years since I saw a CZ27, but I think those had slits for witness marks not holes.

    How many rounds does it hold?

    Seven rounds, I think. I'll have to dig out a box of .32ACP and confirm.

    Good point on the slits for the CZ27.

    Looking at CZ50 mags, I'm seeing a mix of flat baseplates and extended finger baseplates - looks like some had witness holes on left side, some on right side. But all of them are 8-round mags, with 7 witness holes.

    Dreyse doesn't look right either, because those had offset witness holes (in a zig-zag pattern) or slits. I can't find any with just a line of witness holes.

    I'll pop the follower out of this thing tomorrow.

    I honestly figured someone would go, "CZ50." and that'd be the end of it...now it's turning into a mystery.

    One too many witness holes and on the wrong side...

    CZ-70 .32 ACP Flat Base Magazine

    I worked with a guy who had a Llama that had a single stack mag that had the witness holes in a line but I'm pretty sure it was a thumb release.
