Is yours imported by Garcia? From what I understand, magazines are hard to come by for these importers. Found some though. If you didn't know already, Garcia is actually Abu Garcia...The fishing reel company. The two big differences I noticed are that 1) only magazines made for the Garcia importers will work with the Garcia guns and 2) Behind the lever that brakes the gun down, the word "Disassembly" is written in Italian and all the other guns (that I know of) are in English. Also, if you're not as concerned about the monetary value of your gun and want to preserve it, check out Hard Chrome Plating & Electroless Nickel Plating, Armalloy & Gun Bluing by Mahovsky's Metalife
I plan on having my dads' gun redone with the Metalife process to preserve it. What do you think?
