Which mags do you recommend and can you get them through the normal post or do they have to go to an RFD. Really could do with some better mags than the ones Bob supplied with my gun.

Im sure Matt will be able to fix you up,
The Old SA80 mags are ok, USGI's if you can find them,
HK a2's are great, Just keep trolling Ebay, thats where all my mags have come from :)

James,



+1

Also surplus stores often have the older SA80 mags and old USGI 20s and 30s, and regularly at silly prices, the last lot of SA80 RG mags I got for £3.00 each but these finds are rare. Usually expect to pay between £5 and £10. I'd never pay more.

If you want new USGI try the EE, there is usually some 20 rounders going.

If you are really stuck IM me and I'll see what I can do,.

ETA: they are completely uncontrolled in the UK, so you can get them shipped direct to your door!

I think the most i ever paid was £20 for a BNIW,

James,



BNIW mags will demand a premium, the prices I quoted were for used mags.
New 20s (Colts) I've seen go for £20+. New(ish) HK A2 mags have gone for £30+.

It all depends on how desparate you need them. The EE usually has Colt 20s for around $20, but you need to pay postage.

BTW, James, will you gift wrap the business card holder for me, please
