HI guys.

I have a Swenson Bobcat conversion of a USGI Ithaca 1911A1 that I acquired a few years ago and taking a long look at it today, I have an odd question...

Doesn't seem to be discussed very often here, but what would the magazine have looked like that would have been shipped with this pistol?

It came to me with a highly polished chromed USGI mag with a leather bumper added to the butt, but I have no idea if this is an original Swenson-modified mag or something that was picked up along the way.

Any ideas?

That sounds correct.

THe Swenson's that I've examined had that type mag. The leather base pad was common back then. I think I've still got a bag of those somewhere.
