Sorry, the answer is no. I have original Colt .38 Super magazines, plus a couple of Mec-Gar's, and a couple of Wilson. None of these 3 types will accept a 10mm cartridge.

Some people claim to have good success with .45 magazines. I have tried this also. The Wilson worked best, but were only about 90 % reliable.

The magazines I have in 10mm are original Colt, Tripp, and Mec-Gar. All 3 seem to be reliable, if everything else is satisfactory.

I hope this helps.
