Description:

1) Late WWI second pattern variation magazine employs the stamped folding winding lever and has the typical rough finish of the later manufacture drums. The front and back of the magazine drum are marked with the maker's code "B/N" (for Gebrüder Bing/Nurnberg) and the matching serial numbers "199535". The numbers "12", "17", "22", "27" and "32" are stamped around the circumference of the back edge. There is an Imperial proof on the upper left side of the magazine body. 2) Snail drum loader, black paint finish and no visible markings.

Rating Definition:

1) Very good with 85% original blue finish remaining showing areas of normal usage wear and a smooth gray patina on the exposed metal. The markings are clear. Appears to function properly. 2) Good with 60% of the black finish. Mechanically excellent.
