    anyone point me in the direction of ANY mags for a ruger p89? looking for 15 or 17 round mags...

    I guess the craze has affected anyone who is in my position, guys buying every one they see... Just wondering if anyone happened to know of some in stock somewhere.

    I don't remember the specifics, but a magazine that fits the P89 fits several of the other guns in the P series. You may have luck cross referencing which ones share the common magazine design and looking under each of the different pistol model numbers. It is a long shot, but might work.

    thanks WOW, I'll keep an eye on that auction but it looks like they'll get too rich for my blood before it's over :-( My title was right I guess, BAD time to pick up a "new" gun...

    btw, I had checked those places, just not in a couple of days... I guess it'll help to stay vigilant, or just give up and wait a few months...

    Give Southern Ohio Gun a call. Recently they had a bunch of used AWB-era Ruger P-94 15-rnd mags for $10 each (not sure if they're still that price). Their website still lists them but says to call for pricing availability right now.

    Like Fryer said all 9mm Ruger P-series mags work in all the pistols. Some might visually look a little different depending on when they were made but they work in all the guns.

    Just be prepared to pay a bit more for shipping. I bought 4 of them from them a few months back and shipping was close to $20.

    I've got a few extra p91 (.40) aftermarket magazines. If you wanted to experiment with tweaking the feed lips. PM me if you are interested.

    I am so glad I picked up a bunch of old used P95 (fits P89 too) mags from CDNN a while ago for $9.99 each.

    I would check for P95 mags too, if you are patient, you will find a good deal eventually.

    Any of the P series 9mm mags will work. P-85, P-89, P-94, or P-95. The baseplates are different, but they should function. I've successfully used .40 mags with 9mm ammo. Wouldn't be my 1st choice, but lots of guys did so during the 1994-2004 ban.

    BigwhiteyJ, that is very nice of you! I will keep it in mind if I don't find what I'm after. That gunbroker auction was at 70 bucks yesterday for two, haven't dared look at it today! I have a 10 round and a 15 round, so it isn't like I don't have any mags, I just don't care for the 10 round as I'd rather have a .45 with 8-10 rounds than a 9mm with 10 :cool: anyhow, one 15 round magazine should be plenty of oompf having 2 mags would be what I would consider enough...

    The guy I bought it from is supposed to be finding a 32 round magazine that he had stashed around for it... If I get that critter I bet I could trade it in a minute ;-) or with the way mags are going, sell it and buy a new gun with the money hehe

    thanks guys, I'll give that place in Ohio a call monday and see what they say.

    I'd try CDNN, Brownells, Midway, Natchez, Sportsman's Guide, Cheaper than Dirt. CDNN had S&W 5906 magazines earlier this week, thankfully. Call because their website is running behind their inventory.

    I thought the P85 and early P89 mags were different?

    The other day when I checked, Mec-Gar is not accepting any orders. Pretty much like everyone.

    They might have been slightly different as produced by the factory but the mags swap between guns.

    There was a slight difference early on and Ruger used to print a caveat saying that the newer magazines might not be as reliable in guns made before a certain serial number. I think the locking notch was slightly altered. I think most mags you find now will be ok.

    Yep. P95 and 89 mags swap back and forth. I recently sold my 89 as I needed to make some room, but I used to swap mags with my shooting buddy who runs a 95. His were all ten rounders and mine were 15s, but worked just fine.
