Default Model 39 Military magazines.

These magazines were developed for fast sight recognition of rounds left, or to see if you magazine is fully loaded, when trying to see through the holes may not be the fastest/best way during combat situations. You will notice in the two custom Model 39s I have, that both ASP and DVEL pistols used this design in their magazines going a step further by using cartidge counter windows in both sides of the grip panels for round count without magazine removal. ** Note**You can see the military magazines pictured on some of the Model 39 manuals.
