Wilson Combat 47D Magazines




I have many Wilson Combat 47D magazines for 10mm and .45ACP. Unlike Wilson Combat Elite magazines (which I also have many of), the 47D's do not have the cartridge listed on them. 10mm rounds will fit fine in the .45ACP magazines, but the .45ACP will obviously not fit in the 10mm.

Is there an easy way to tell the difference between the 10mm and .45ACP Wilson Combat 47D's?

Thanks,
Jay

10mm mags Have a crease stamped on the tube to control the smaller diameter case.
It should be pretty apparent side by side.

Thanks, that makes it easier. I still may lightly engrave each one with "10mm", so anyone picking them up can immediately tell what cartridge they are for.

Has Wilson ever thought about marking them similar to the Elite mags, minus the round count?
