    Hello to all, I need yall's help

    Hello,
    I have a pistol mag a friend gave me; he received it with some other gun stuff from
    his friend's family. His friend passed away; my friend knows nothing
    about the mag. I'm sending you some pics. The mag had some 4 or 5 380 cal. cartage's
    in it. It's a single stack mag.
    I've asked everyone around gun friends, gun shows, gun shops and still no
    luck. There aren't any proof marks on it. I haven't tried any Makarov
    rounds, I think they'd fit. I'm not sure if 380 cal. and 9mm Kurtz are the same dimensions or not, I'll look into that as well. I've tried every brand of pistol that I could get my hands on(old and
    new) with a bottom handle mag release. I measured and mic’ed (mm &
    inch) the mag so that it might help identify it.I know there are 1000's of pistol from all over the world, I've web surfed, posted on gun forums, and still no luck.
    This is a puzzle I haven't been able to solve. Any help would be
    greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    .380 is known as 9mm Kurz in Europe, and therefore they are indeed the same. Also known as 9mm Short, because Kurz in German means short.

    I am not a Mak expert, but did just spend a weekend shooting my friends (600 rounds) the mag is not that long, and has a different config for a bulgy mak. Not what it is, but at least one not what it isn't.

    Here a comparison Picture

    I use to have a Bryco 48 (junk) and I found one of my old mags. If you look at the length difference were the mag catch is it tells me the mag on the right has a much longer/larger handle on the mystery mag
