the other day I was browsing gunbroker, came across an ad that intrigued me. I almost made the purchase, but decided to hold off because of uncertainty. I'd never seen a factory Beretta mag with such a high gloss finish, nor have i seen them drilled to show every 2 rounds on the count. my 92 mags are drilled for 5, 10, and 15, my 10 round 96 mags are drilled for 5 and 10, and the factory 11 round mag I have is drilled for 5 and 11. See the pics: Because of curiosity, I went ahead and contacted Beretta directly to ask them their opinion, which was about useless, because they didn't answer 2 of the 3 questions I asked, all they said was "well it appears to be a factory mag, the stampings are on the correct side of the magazine" So, have any of you seen this kind of a finish on a beretta magazine? or seen them drilled to show every 2 rounds?
