I can't find any.

And I am looking for standard capacity Sig 2340 Magazines, as well as standard capacity XD compact magazines.

September 13, 2004, 10:01 AM
Nice work. The more hysterical they become, the less people listen. Let's continue to do all we can to set the tone of all future descriptions of STANDARD CAP MAGS rather than the other term. Maybe someone here can come up with a catchy descriptive name like.....? :neener: TO ALL WHO THOUGHT THE AWB WAS ANYTHING MORE THAN AN EMBARESSMENT TO ANY LOGICAL PERSON.

We have three differant firearms now - pre-ban, post ban,(what we can have now), and Prohibition Era! THE BAN IS DEAD!!!!!

For you collectors, Used LEO Mags:

September 13, 2004, 10:46 AM
That 10-round thing was for all magazines (even rifles), right? If so, I want a new drum magazine for my SKS :p

September 13, 2004, 10:53 AM

They were the cheapest that I saw.

September 13, 2004, 12:27 PM
CDNN is NOW selling there supply of LEO marked magazines.

These magazines are not listed on either one of their websites.

Give them a call at 1 (800) 588-9500.

September 13, 2004, 12:30 PM
Ivanhoe's Outlet ( has Glock and Sig mags.
The Glock mags are LEO marked, $16 each.
I think they'll have unmarked for the same price when the LEO mags are gone.

September 13, 2004, 01:36 PM
The $16 Glock mags I see on Ivanhoe's site are 10-rounders.

September 13, 2004, 03:18 PM
Craig's Firearms here in Knoxville is selling LE mags for what they've always been selling them for. They just don't require letterhead to buy them anymore. :)

Glock: $19.95
Bushmaster 30rd: $16 and change.

September 13, 2004, 06:36 PM

Tamara, yeah verily we paid a visit to Craig's and got some of those Glock goodies along with a few S&Ws for the Keltec P11. The prices were reasonable. I phoned up and talked them into tossing some into a bag with my name on it. Otherwise, Bainx would have been SOL!

Those guys were reeling by 4:00 this afternoon after a furious day of selling mags. All the employees were "spent fuel"
Odd thing is, I had called them last week and they said they will sell starting on Tuesday but, having seen the ATF explaination page, they evidently changed their minds and started the sale on Monday.

September 13, 2004, 10:43 PM
I have a police supply gun shop here, maybe I will check them tomorrow so I don't have to argue with them if they still believe it ends tonight. They had normal prices though, so I don't think anything will be a good deal or anything there.

So far, I have ordered from only, they said they are being flooded with orders/calls/questions so they will begin shipping tomorrow once they get caught up. (USP 40 mags $20) does have a page up for the LE marked magazines. Beretta 92 mags are $20 there.

September 14, 2004, 07:46 AM
Fletcher, be careful with that SKS and the drum.

If you have one of the Sporter SKS rifles designed to take AK mags, take the rifle with you and check for fit.

Every single SKS Sporter I've ever seen (and I currently own one) cannot take the drum mags because of the shape of the stock.

You have to use a chisel or a dremel tool and cut away part of the stock on both sides of the mag well so the big hump of the drum mag will fit.

The mag well is not the problem, it's the shape of the stock that sticks out a lot more than the metal frame of an AK style rifle does.

CDNN is NOW selling there supply of LEO marked magazines.

I just ordered 2 mec-gar 15 round mags for my P228 for $9.99 each. :D

September 14, 2004, 01:27 PM
CDNN is now out of the Mec-Gar 15-round used 228 mags.

Hey, listen to this: the salesman at CDNN told me they sold


magazines yesterday.

Holy smokes. :D

Have you hugged your FFL today?:D

September 14, 2004, 04:12 PM
ky imports, good prices and decent service in the past.

just ordered a pile of glock 19 mags


September 15, 2004, 12:25 AM
Anybody know where I can find LEO or "preban" 13 rounders for the Beretta 92 Compact? I have a friend that I owe several to, and he'd probably get a kick out of having "LEO" stamped on 'em...

September 15, 2004, 02:28 AM
Hmm, I'm trying to find ANY XD .40 magazines, hicap or not. Can't find a single dealer that has them. Any suggestions? All of the AK47 drums are still up around $100 or so. Guess I'll wait a while, see if they import any.

Did find the best prices on AK mags. Centerfire Systems has 30 rd mags for $8, or 4 for $30 with a free pouch.

They also seem to have really good prices on a lot of other hicap pistol mags.

September 15, 2004, 02:55 AM
Hey, listen to this: the salesman at CDNN told me they sold 10,000 magazines yesterday.

That's a lot of mags!

Maybe I should have ordered some of the Beretta 92 mags, they are probably already sold out!

Edit: Yup, they are no longer listed...

September 15, 2004, 05:54 AM

They've gone up a little.
I bought 2 pouches from them a few months ago for $25 each.

September 15, 2004, 06:15 AM
Just ordered two 15 rounders for the USP9......they were down to $40.00 compared to $89.00 early in the summer.

September 15, 2004, 06:29 AM
Is HK yet selling their AR-15 mags?

Where's the cheapest place to buy a Beta CMag?

Don't Tread On Me
September 15, 2004, 07:38 AM
I am glad to see many of you using the CORRECT TERMS for these magazines. Today we can buy Standard Capacity Magazines, instead of those stupid reduced capacity mags.

Hey, it is a start, a very small start - but everything starts somewhere. Get the word out, others will follow suit. WE NEED TO CONTROL the terms. If we don't, we will lose every battle to semantics. I am afraid that we will not be able to reverse 'assault weapons' to refer to semi-automatic rifles or another term. That is heavily set. Of course, "saturday night special" is pretty much a dead phrase now..... you never know

See my signature below.

Yikes, I wonder why my USP40 mag was only $20. Even new it was $30 I think.

Is HK yet selling their AR-15 mags?

Only place I have seen them is, but the price is way up there...:uhoh:

September 15, 2004, 08:07 AM

Best price I've found is AZ Gun Runners - $200.


September 15, 2004, 09:44 AM
Its a war of words before its a war of magazines, so let me encourage the spread to all forums so that all who care about the issue use the term "standard capacity magazines" from now on.

Other terms I discussed with my wife were:
unrestricted capacity mags: struck down, conjures up images of 'too much'

non-restricted capacity mags: better, more accurate. too long and hypenated words dont make good quotes for some reason.

so "standard capacity" won out.

At least at my house.

September 15, 2004, 09:55 AM
always had good luck with cdnn....I would use them

September 15, 2004, 12:02 PM
cdnn had Steyr m40 12 rounders last week under $10.00 now $29.99:(

September 15, 2004, 12:21 PM
Armalite AR-10 20-rounders keep going down. Before the expiration they were $85, on Monday their website listed them at $55, I just ordered some today for $39 each.

I went to the Springfield Armory website

to check out their post-AWB prices on M1A mags. They've obviously not read a newspaper or watched the news recently, as they're still selling reconditioned 20-rounders for $95.00 :what:

I sent their sales dept. the following email, in the hopes that maybe Springfield would wake up:

To Whom It May Concern:

I have 1 suggestion and 1 question:

First, I suggest that you update the prices on your M1A magazines - we are now in a post-AWB world, and the prices that are on your website are outrageously high.

Second, I was wondering whether/when Springfield was going to start up production of NEW M1A magazines. I know a lot of owners of these fine rifles, and we've ALL been holding off on the purchase of new magazines until after the AWB was repealed. If you don't start production and sales soon, you will lose out on a LOT of business.

FYI, there are several websites selling unused 20-round mags made before 9/14/94 for $19.99. I would suggest that you could sell as many as you can make for $15.00 or so retail - and you'll still make a large profit, since we are essentially talking about a stamped metal box containing a spring and an easily manufactured follower.

Anyone interested in reasonably priced M1A mags should send them a similar email or letter, or call them up. I felt totally ripped-off a year ago to buy 4 mags at about $37.00 each, and that was a good price then. Sorry, but now we are talking about a commodity that any metal-stamping company can make, and the price should be well below $20.

I received the following from Springfield:

We have not made any changes to the M1A line up yet. I would recommend
checking back in about 30 days.

CZ USA is now selling 16rd 9mm mags for $37.00 a piece, these are mecgars btw. I haven't been able to find factory mags for the CZ's at CDNN or other sources, and didn't want to modify witness mags.

September 15, 2004, 05:47 PM

Call your local HK dealer and ask 'em. They can order the "HK416" mag as well..;)

Edit: Checking , I found these. vvv

September 16, 2004, 12:17 AM
Is this guy:

A good seller? Thinking of buying from him, but want to know if it's safe...

He's a regular on SigForum, where he posts as deerslayer40. I ran a quick search, and didn't come up with anything negative:

I've got an order pending with him, that I expect within a few days. If you want to wait, I'll let you know when I get mine. But, I know he's running low on several items.


(Edit: My order showed up today in good condition. I happily recommend this seller. :D )

September 16, 2004, 09:12 PM
NICK1911 I ordered 4 ruger 9mm mags from him and received them today. He said they were in good to very good condition, but I would rate them as excellent or better. He is also a regular over on the Ruger Forum. Bottom line.... great product and great service!

September 17, 2004, 08:48 AM
Alrighty, Ordered.


Thanks for the feedback guys.


September 20, 2004, 01:17 PM
I should buy mags now. I'm afraid mag prices here in Europe will rise because of the increased American demand. :D

September 20, 2004, 11:08 PM
T.Stahl, just in case you read this, I'm still awaiting word on those G36 mags..;)


Oh, yeah. Cheaperthandirt has used 20rd. aluminum HK G3 mags for $1.97 apiece.
