Hi KJ,

Look in Tracie Hill's book "Thompson - the American Legend".
Pages 344 to 347 show many of the 20 and 30 round mags with maker ids, etc.
This is an excellent book to have. I highly recommend it!

Good luck!

kj1,

As Mike indicated, Tracie's book is an excellent source of information. I also suggest American Thunder by Frank Iannamico. It focuses on WWII Thompsons, which is when all of the XXX mags were made. A third source is the online version of Thompson Collectors Newsletter. Go to www.nfatoys.com/tsmg/tcn/default.htm and select the 2001 Index. Volume 133 - November 15, 2001, has an excellent article on the XXX mags.

There are several good articles on TSMG mags in old editions of the Thompson Collectors News. Go to the web site and just start looking throught the old online issues.

Without a doubt, the best book for money you can buy is Doug Richardson's
book, THOMPSON SUBMACHINE GUN BOX MAGAZINES soft cover. 56 pages 8 1/2" x 11" covers all aspects of the box magazines.
Best book you could have and cheap at $16.00
Phone Doug at (310) 457-6400.
Regards
