When I purchased my Pasadena a few years ago it came with 2 mags. One held 8 rounds.
My TDE, from 1974, only came with  the 7 round mag. So I thought I would post the picture and hope one of the experts might know.

It looks like a black Krasne's Triple K magazine.  It is missing a factory assembly hole and it doesn't use the proper factory follower pin / hold-open pin.  Triple K used an Allen screw for the pin.  The screw had the threads ground off of the shaft and it was pressed into the follower like a pin.  The pin I see in the picture looks like a generic pin I have seen used before. 
Ttiple K magazines had the floor plate welded in the front unlike the factories.  I can't make it out in the picture. 
I believe they also made some with a hard chrome finish so as to resemble stainless steel. 
I would guess that the trick with an 8 round magazine would be with the spring.  A trade off of being too strong so it pushes the top round out of the shell or so weak that the last round won't come to the top.   
 
Five rounds is enough for me.

I was fortunate enough to be able to load six in my TDE!!!

This was always one of my strikes against the AutoMag.  What is the point of a full sized auto-loading magnum handgun that can't run the advertised number of rounds?  Or worse...limit you to even fewer rounds than a revolver?  Where is the advantage?

This was the very first thing that I gave feedback on for the new gun.  First Item:  run seven rounds all the time...EVERY time in every magazine.

....and, by George, I think that is exactly what is gonna happen!!!! Big smile

I will try to run all 8+1 through my auto mags but may wait until the Founder's Edition arrives. I called Trpple K and she said they only have steel, no stainless.
While on the topic, does anyone know the difference between the old and new mags on The New Auto Mag store website other than $10?

Tony, I normally put about 5 in the mag but I was surprised by the total capacity of one mag over the other. Have you seen this before?
Thanks.

Yup.  But only because explosive filled rubber chickens are so expensive.
