Looking for a beta-c mag with a clear back that comes with the pouch, loader, graphite, and all that junk. I traded mine for a MD20 drum. Who has the best price on one of these? I know CDNN sells for $269.99, can I do any better?

If it were me, I'd buy just the mag ($230) and the 5rd personal loader ($16.50) straight from Betaco. Then buy a tube or two of graphite at the hardware store and be in business for about $250 less the shipping.

that is a sound plan. I saw c-mags at the ft worth show for $350, so now it the time if you want them... they will only get more expensive.

Thanks for the tip, I also notice they have a MP5 beta mag for $250, a HK 33 beta mag for $250, and a Colt 9mm beta mag for $270; all with clear backs. I was thinking about maybe getting 1 or 2 of these, are these about the best prices that I can find? Also, will the 5rd loader work on the HK33 mag as well as the AR15 mag? Should I get the 10 round speed loader instead?

If you search around you may save a couple more bucks.

The HK loader isn't compatible with the AR15/M16 mags. The 10rd loader works great IF your ammo is on stripper clips but can be somewhat of a PITA when trying to fill it with loose rounds.

You can always use a lula for the loose ammo.
