I have found that the WaA140 mags are not too rare and have found them in 1922 mag piles at local gun shows. The 613 and 103 marked ones are a little harder to find. Matter of fact, I could use a couple of 613 ones!
Nice to see you posting here on the Forum! Your book on the
Belgian (FN) Browning pistols is an outstanding contribution to the vintage pistol collecting community. I have my autographed copy right here in my lap as I respond to this current topic. I refer to it all the time and consider it the premier book on the subject and certainly one of the best in terms of lay out and supported with outstanding photos. Thank you very much!!
Anyway, I wanted to respond to your message/post about WaA613 marked M1922 magazines. I have attached pictures of a fourth variation? E/WaA613 waffenamt acceptance stamped M1922 in 7.62 caliber. It is Serial number 22064. The magazine that came with this pistol has a WaA613 waffenamt acceptance stamp on the back of the magazine (spine) down about 1/2 inch from the top. I just recently acquired this M1922 back at the SOS show in February in Louisville, KY.
I also have a Model 1922 caliber 9mmK (full rig) with E/2 marked drop holster. It is serial number 64971. It has two magazines and neither one is WaA613 waffenamt acceptance stamped but have the FN banner/logo with 9m/m below on the right side of the magazine near the bottom.
Hi Anthony and Lloyd,
Just wanted to throw in my two cents. I have a 7.65mm 1922, WaA613 marked pistol with no 613 on the mag. As a note, there was a 613 mag for sale on the trader board which I just missed!!
But, in my spare mag box, I have a 1922 mag marked with FN and 9mm and it has a WaA613 on the spine.
