Anyone know of a source for replacement 30-round magazine bodies for $8 or less, and floorplates for $1 or less...both shipped?

I have a bunch of orange followers and new USGI springs, but no floorplates & no bodies.  I can get new mags for $10.  I don't want to put more into assembling a new mag than I can buy a new mag for.  With the ban gone (for now), I want to put my parts to good use.

Brownells has the floorplates 12 for $12.

Thanks.  I was to lazy to type TAG, so I hit the space bar a couple of times.

Now back to the original question.

+1 on the replacement mag body.  i would like to replace one of mine that had a tab break off when i replaced the spring and follower.  i guess at least i have a parts mag.

Before the ban ended, we could buy these.  Now, it appears that they are nowhere to be found.

Very strange.

With mags being so cheap lately (10-13 bucks each) why not just buy new mags?



The same reason why we build another rifle when we have spare parts lying around.

it's because during the ban it was a shady way of getting new mags under the guise of replacing bad parts so there was a bigger demand for "replacement" bodies than now when new mags are legal

I guess that settles that: no replacement bodies to be found...at a decent price.

brownells has the mag bodies listed:

Peace River repacement magazine parts,
part #
100-001-984  - 20rd replacement mag body(curved not straight)
100-001-985  - 30rd replacementmag body

$12.50 for full price less if you get dealer discount(actually a nice price if you get the discount).

i was thinking of ordering some to make my own high reliablity mags out of and not be stuck with a bunch of extra parts i don't need.

Peace river is actually owned now by Brownells. Good products just overpriced. There are good replacement parts kits for magazines out there. Magazines are going up in price.  I know for a fact D&H is going up in 2006 due to costs raw materials. Brownells also does not make magazimes. They are a bid winner but buy from a prime contractor.

Dealer price is only $10.59 for both 20 and 30 round bodies. Not much of a deal once you add shipping and all the other part to make them complete.
