I'll be sure to keep an eye out. Do you guys need 10 rounders or can you legally own 16 rounders?
Thanks, pal! 10 here, and 16 in Arizona. I leave my standard capacity mags at my brother's in Prescott, I just can't have 'em shipped here or bring them here (I don't). Your call.
And may I say, from a moral point of view, I think there can be no justification for shoving snack cakes up your action.

Aluminum G3 mags are 97 cents at CTD and $3 for steel.

Walther P-99 mags can be easily fabricated from XD magazines by simply marking and filing the square mag catch notch on the front of the mag body.

Drill the hole in the appropriate place and file the hole square.

Picked up a 99 for peanuts a while back cause it didn't have any mags.
The whole bad mag thing had reared it's ugly head and all had been thrown away originally.

That's interesting, So one might, conceivably have one mag that works in 3 different guns.
Beretta 9x, XD, and SW99/P99.
I suppose it depends on the catch hole location. It only has to be a slightly different location.

If two holes are stacked vertically, the smaller hole would need to be on top (and even then it might not work). That way the larger mag retention mechanism can pass over the smaller hole and set in the larger hole.
If you are unwilling to give another man freedom in his life, do not expect to have it in your own.
It surely beats trying to figure out what the metrosexuals want ( a good hard kick in the nuts in my opinion, but that won't sell ice cream :D )- Highspeed

All the ones I have do. I have an HK 91 and I used to have a CETME. I sold the CETME but all the mags interchanged. I bought a ton from CTD.

I'll be watching this thread to make sure I don't buy superfluous dummy mags to build around! :P

Long time readers may remember that I once bought some G3 magazines that had been modified to supposedly work in my saiga .308. They didn't. They were pretty poorly done, however, so I think the concept is still valid. There was also a guy on various AK forums who had modified an S-308 with a special magwell to take the G3 mags back during the ban. Under the expired rules, a modified magazine still had to be usable in the originally intended rifle in order to be legal.

That sounds like a super title for a musical number :)
