Default Baby Luger Magazine

I recently stumbled across this magazine which I take to be from the Baby Luger.

The toggle is stamped 6 or 9. When were these guns last produced and are the magazines scarce? Any way of dating this one?

Best regards,

Erma KGP 68 pistol in 9mm Short / .380 auto.

Nothing to do with a 'real' Luger and a pretty bad quality 1970s pistol.

Maybe not lacking the quality of its predecessors from the 60s, the La- and Ep-22s. The KGP series were constructed mostly of steel, save the cast Zamak trigger and--unfortunately--the grip frame.

I've heard that cast zinc alloy becomes more brittle over time. It might explain why one of mine began to crack along the front part of the frame, beginning at a sharp inside corner in the slot into which the upper slides. I had it micro-welded by Jim French. Then it happened again to another KGP68A .380. I think I'll stick to shooting the smaller calibers in Ermas from now on.
