Hi, does the suffix on the mag. match the one on the luger frame or can they be a different letter and still be from the same gun? I'm looking at one with the frame having ser# 856 and a "u" under it, the magazine has "85 6" off center to the left and "e" under it ..the "856" on the mag. is not spaced the same between the numbers...is this correct or has someone sanded and stamped this, trying to pass it off as original...? thanks, Robert

Hi Robert
Welcome to the forum. It's not a matching mag. The number and letter should be the same as the pistol. More than likely a forced match (re-stamped).
