Colt Woodsman Gun Show Find

Decided to visit the gun show today, mostly to get away from the house for awhile, have someone besides me to cook my breakfast. I was not planning on buying anything. So the third table I stop at the man has some old shotguns and rifles nothing special, a few old pistols and revolvers, again nothing special. Then I see the basket weave holster and this pistol at first I thought it was a High Standard but no wait it is a Colt Woodsman. Just because I'm not planning on buying anything don't mean I won't or that I don't have a "list" running on a loop in my head. Before I could even pick it up to check it out he tells me his "best" price which is $75 bucks off his marked price. IMO his price is reasonable, pistol is in pretty god shape, most of the bluing is nice. I'm not going to collect it I will shoot it.
Between his Colt book and my smart phone, it is a Series II, Era 1950, Colt Woodsman 6" barrel, .22lr.

Those are great little pistols. I have my fathers Gen II Match Target, which still shoots great after 60 years.

Anyone know the best source to buy extra magazines? What I'm finding so far is you can buy some made by a company called Triple K but they are expensive in the $42-$52 dollar range. I read someplace original Colt Woodsman magazines are triple digit when you can find them.

I do not have a good source. The ones I have found are expensive, and my best luck has been gun shows. You do have to watch make sure they are for the model you have. Apparently they changes from Gen-to-Gen and have the retainer notch in slightly different places.
