@Cove3rt - The magazine is correct for this early of a pistol. Colt magazines for the 1903 were unmarked until roughly 1914 according to Sam Lisker's - Colt Autos.

Does anyone know if this magazine correct for this pistol? I know some of them have a base of the magazine that was stamped CALIBRE .32 or CAL. .32 over COLT.
