Colt marked 1911 .38 Super magazines

Hello and Happy New Year to All:

It has been awhile since I visited. Hope to find all in good spirits and good health.

There was a time when I would have known the answer to my question. However, that time is not now.

I am going to make a gift of a certain .38 Super Colt 1911 to my son in law, the Colonel, United States Army. Now it is not like I have no magazines to include with the pistol. It is just that I find myself without any identical to those as were supplied with this pistol at this particular time.

Last I knew, Colt had ceased to offer their .38 Super magazines in blue and were only supplying them in stainless. Well, I am sure you can figure out those which I am seeking.

Any member have a line on any new blue Colt marked .38 Super magazines? If they were for me; a generic Checkmate or Metalform would fill the bill. However, this pistol is factory archive lettered and the magazine description is noted in the letter, IIRC.

Feel free to say hello even if you have no information of which could be of assistance.

Yes, they would. All the modern blue ones I have seen have a M on the baseplate as well. I could not get the thumbnail to orient correctly. My apologies.
