I just aquired a lot of mag bases, mostly wood (reproduction, I believe) along with some black plastic and one ivory.
Never taking anything for granted (plastic ivory?), I did the old red hot needle test on the ivory. Lo and behold it passed! The base is unmarked with checkerboard serations. Obviously hand cut at about 38-40 lines per inch.

Anyone ever seen anything like this before?

Thanks,
Mike

Mike, very interesting!

Can you scan it in or take digital photos?

I have seen the plastic, but never ivory, although I have seen ivory grips before.

Wish I could put up a pix, but am limited by equipment and know-how. Sorry.

The grips you mentioned sound nice. I have a 1920 commercial that I love to shoot. Perhaps I will look for some faux ivory grips and put the base on a new mag.

Best,
Mike
