    In the April 4, 2005 edition of Shotgun News, there's an ad for 12rd (12.50) and 16rd (39.50) magazines for the .40S&W BHP, page 183. The listed email is info@gunmags.com . My guess is that these are converted KRD 15rd. and 17rd. magazines. Interesting, these are the first hi-capacity .40 BHP mags I've found, and I've looked pretty well. Has anyone tried these?

    NOTE: I'm not affiliated with Forrest Co. in any way, just wanted to give you guys a heads up :) .

    Thanks natedog,

    If you buy them, let us know how they work out.

    Don't have a Hi-Power yet, and I'm annoyed that I found this- it's making the 9mm/40 choice difficult. When I thought the .40s were limited to 10 rounds, it was 9mm for sure...Now, I'm not so certain. I like cheap mags, cheap ammo, and low recoil, but then again the .40 does have that 180gr. bullet thing going for it. Is the extra 0.05" worth the reduced capacity, high cost, and higher recoil? Who knows?!! :banghead:

    I have BHP's in both 9mm and .40 S&W. I prefer the 9mm regardless of capacity mainly because of the loaded weight. They just kind of feel right too, hard to explain.

    CDNN has bunches of various 9mm BHP mags, all for considerably less than $40.

    (Late edit: I wonder what it would take to make a 9mm BHP mag work in a .40. Widening the feedlips? I've done it with other makes, but haven't tried BHP mags.)

    I've used a bunch of their KRD (South African) mags for years, without problems.
