Come on Tika $90, really?
I really want to buy your rifle but I’d spend just as much money on mags as the rifle.

Before I opened the thread I was thinking cheaper than dirt and what assholes they are.

And here I was thinking HK mags were expensive.

$50 for a 5rd 270 mag for my T3x 270. And it's plastic, though not really an issue with a deer rifle.

My deer rifle is a Sig SHR 970 in .270. It has a nice metal mag and I found them for $16.50 a mag. I bought a whole bunch.
Now if I could just find some other caliber barrels.

Ha! That's what I thought when I saw the headline of the thread! Mags for my USC's(converted to the UMP style) are $75 each for German, $65 or so for American made Roll Eyes before the panic. I'd hate to see what they're going for right now.

True but that is not a current production gun and you can use a blued mag that can be had for $25-$30.

I could technically use the 5 rounder but they are still $50.

Bought 2 for my SIG 232 for $20 each at a gun show.


Paid $75 for a .308 for a Savage 99C.

I hear you. I'd like a back up mag for my .243 T3 but they are stupid expensive.

Yeah but, HK mags seem to appreciate in value quicker than gold....... so if you want to sell them you'll make a nice profit.
