Hello, I am new to this forum as of today. I just purchased an Inglis Hi Power. It only came with one magazine. The magazine was not stamped with the traditional "JI". The only stamp was on the lower front and it appears to be the Greek Pi symbol. I looked back on previous posts and have done a significant amount of Google searches. The only information I got is that it is possibly Belgian, other than that I I have no information on it. I would really like to know where I came from an approximate year was produced.

Thank you in advance for any help I can receive, Steve

I believe the Pi symbol indicates Belgian manufacture for the magazine. As to period, no idea.
It seems possible/likely it would pre-date manufacture of hi-power magazines by MecGar but I don't know when that started either.
The Inglis was only produced in the mid 1940's so that at least pins down age of the pistol.

If you post detailed pictures of the magazine, there are forum members who have more info that may comment and provide additional insight.
Is follower aluminum or plastic?
Is the baseplate a "split-tail" design similar to the Inglis?
If the baseplate has a center dot, is it round or an angled bump
