"Raven" magazine?

Postby adam01364 » Wed Mar 21, 2018 8:25 am

Picked up a few random .25ACP mags and I found one that appeared to be for a Raven, only it's not.
First off, the base is shorter and it's squared off in the front Second, the follower is metal and not plastic. Third, the welding along the base is MUCH cleaner than a Raven. Maybe it's for a Spanish Eibar pistol? Anyway, it fit the Raven and functioned fine.

Any ideas?

I need to go through some of my stuff to see what that really looks like. I'm thinking a Ruby. My friend has a Paramount Ruby 25 with a mag like that.

This makes me wonder if George Jennings took an existing mag and ran with that in the infancy of Raven. It sure would have made the first few cheaper to produce if he could just slap in mags made by somebody else and not have to scratch-build them himself.

I'm beginning to think Ruby myself.
