Cadmium Magazine on hand!

Hey Jim, I saw this last night as well and was a good reference for me. All these years and I haven't been familiar with this type magazine as I haven't had a gun in the time frame these were used. BUT, last week I did receive a very nice 102 Citation that came with 3 mags, two blue and one cadmium which I set aside because it looked out of place. Its a very nice one too. That particular Citation is going to be within the serial number range that could either have come with blue or cadmium and before long I'll ask Mr. Stimson for his thoughts about it. So if I happen to get that matched pair, I may have a correct mag already for it. Maybe... Or two incorrect mags for the Citation....

          Hello Jim, All 102's did not ship with cadmium plated magazines. The drawing change for the finish change was in August 1959 about a year before the 103's appeared. Certainly there was a time frame... more

            Hello John and Ron, My apologies, I must have been thinking the round bottom weights vs. the flat bottoms with the 102/103 shift Sorry about that, Jim

          Hey Jim, the knowledge base here is obviously top drawer! Appreciate you all for your time helping others out. The reason I left open the possibility for a blue mag on the Citation was from a post... more
