Most expensive magazine


October 26, 2007, 09:31 PM
I just picked up a mag for my Supermatic Trophy for $35.00. Was wondering what is the most you've ever paid for a pistol magazine, for what weapon and how much was it?

On the order of $75 for some Smith and Wesson pre-ban .40 mags back in about '95 or '96. May sound crazy now, but when they went well over $100 a couple of years later it seemed like an good deal.

$20 for Glock Model 21 13 round magazine.

Friend paid $120 for H&K P-7M13 13 round magazine. He bought 3 at the time. Said it was the cheapest he was able to find right before the 94-ban.

$99/ea for HK P7M13 mags.

October 26, 2007, 09:54 PM
HK p7psp $45 used

Seen P7M8 mags going for around $65-75 all the time, occasionally see some idiot buying them for $100 plus.

I paid $45 for a 10 round magazine for a Firestorm 9mm which is, or was at the time, a $300 gun (new).

$240 for a Beta Mag for my AR pistol.

55$ local for Para Ord p14-45 mags

I bought a Manuhrin PPK/S in 22 long rifle in the middle 1980's. it came with two but I decided I needed some more and the only extra magazines available were genuine Walthers at $35 each ($105 for 3 more) and that was 20 years ago

It is not the most expensive magazine, but the most I have personally paid for a magazine is $39 out the door (with tax) for a S&W M&P9C.

October 27, 2007, 09:20 PM
$300 for a Beta-C AR mag w/pouch and goodies.

For handguns, my Witness Limited 10mm mags are about $85/ea.

$126 for two S&W Sigma high capacity mags for my Son-in law ( LEO ) during the ban. Marry Christmas son Now they go for what $20.:fire:

Try pricing Snail Drum magazines for Lugers. Stretching the point, to be sure, but....still a pistol magazine.

I bought a Llama MicoMax 45 NIB that only came with one mag. The box had a price sheet for extra mags, $50 EACH not including shipping. Sold it the next month because nobody made aftermarket mags for such a new gun.

HK P9S .45 mags wil commonly run in the $70 range. Myself...$50 for P7M8 mags.

October 28, 2007, 09:16 AM
Most I ever paid was $30...walther p99 mags. Then again I bought all my mags at that price.

$75 for an original Colt Woodsman magazine.

October 28, 2007, 11:57 AM
$220 for a Steyr GB mag. $150 to $175 is more usual, but I got tired of being constantly outbid at those prices so I just bit the bullet. It was the second mag for the gun, and with that one acquired I will spend considerably less on any more that I acquire.

October 28, 2007, 12:02 PM
I do not know about today but I used to see Galil mags for $65 to well over $100
during the ban and the great magazine shortage it was not uncommon to see Glock mags going for over $100 especially at the gun show scalpers tables.:what:

I would also rate Luger magazines in the high end of prices as anything goes depending on rarity and condition just remember to bring a box of kleenex after buying a few of these.

October 28, 2007, 12:07 PM
For me personally, HKP7M8 magazines. $60.00 a piece and I bought 8.

October 28, 2007, 01:38 PM
H&K P7M13. Got 2 during the ban that were $80 per copy. If you're lucky you might find one priced at $75 now. Many places that still have them are going for $100.

Low-end for Coonan mags is about $200 on the auction sites.

:what:Whoa! How much do the guns cost, when they crop up?

Try an Uzi .45 Mag
A drum mag for a Thompson, especially the 100 rounder

October 28, 2007, 06:13 PM
I paid 200$ for an ak 75rd romanian drum during the ban.

October 28, 2007, 06:48 PM
About $100 for 17 round Glock 17 magazines. THis was during the ban and when I was very young. I was taken by a swindler.

Now that I am older and more knowledgeable I shop around a lot before I put my credit card down.

My dad has a Bernadelli .22 competition pistol. Magazines, when found, are in the $100+ range.

Otherwise, my Walther marked P99 mags were a steal at $30. Typically they are $40 - $60 and tricky to find.


October 28, 2007, 07:01 PM
About $85 each. I bought ten.
