Default My first P08 (from the battle of Montecassino, 1944) and my first post

Hello from Italy and thanks to read my first message.
I bought a wonderful (at least for me) P08, 42, 1939, parabellum 9x19, in a specialized shop in Northern Italy.

I needed a bit of history and I got it: this Mauser comes from a private collection of weapons from the WWII battle of Montecassino (
It connects me to all the stories of WWII that my grandfather (born in 1915) told me when I was a kid and to handle it and to owe it.... it’s an ‘explosion’ of emotions.

Thanks to this forum I read many post and links concerning the ‘42’ model from 1939, but I have a question on the magazine.

The seller told me that the gun was single serial number in all its part except for the magazine and so it is.

What kind of magazine is the one he gave me? Why it doesn’t have any serial number on its bottom?

sincerely, Andrev
