Magazine

For those loving the magazines here is the drawing of one

Two variations exist : one for 8 Lebel, the other one for 7 Mauser

Was this magazine for the Chauchat machine gun? I can’t see any spring in the drawing.
The Chauchat gun earned a horrible reputation among the republicans who were armed with it during the Spanish Civil War (the International Brigades, mainly).

Nothing to see with chauchat which was designed in 1915
This one is from before: 1907

It is a lot more scarcer
