Yeah they were about that much. Lets see, about $250 for the drum, $30 for the HK mag leaves $500 for labor????? Besides, 75rds of 308+drum+hk91 +heavy a$$ gun! Imagine how she rattles too with 75 rounds in a metal drum...and people complain about rattles in Betas. Sheeesh! BrenLover

Looks like that thing found under 18 wheeler's.

Well its perfect for those who want to have 75 shots on their PSG1, but I would take a HK21 over using this mag in a G3.

Cool toy but how many 30s can be bought for that price? But the ones I want to find are the scarce 40 round egyptian .308 HK mags. Anyone remember those?

Well, its only a fifty rounder, but I'd rather have factory HK: [img]www.hkpro.com/image/greyg8.jpg[/img] It's probably a lot cheaper, too.

I have a friend who just bought at the last Big Town Show in Mesquite, Texas. He paid [size=4]$1,000.00[/size=4] for it! About two weeks later, he bought his first HK-91! Talk about putting the cart before the horse! Imagine spending that kind of dough on a mag for a weapon you don't even own yet. (Edited for response to [b]havoc[/b] - I didn't look at it too closely, but I thought it was an HK accessory, turn's out it's 'C&S Metalwerkes') Eric The(Parsimonious)Hun[>]:)]

That mag is nothing more than a NOVELTY. Two types buy a mag like that. 1. More $ than Brain cells. 2. Has money to throw away for trinkets. NOT a good choice for a PSG-1 For many reasons. 1. Tactics, mil doctorine usually dictates a sniper to move after fire. Not needed in police roles as few rounds are fired. If a police sniper fires more than a couple rounds something REALLy went wrong. 2. Noise, that mag will be VERY noisy compaired to 20rd mag. Noise can = death to a military sniper. 3. Bulky, hard to store and transport compared to a 20rd mag. Harder to change than a 20 if you plan to take it with you. 4. Weight, not as much an issue to a PO but to a military man who has to move fast and remain quiet the weight and size already adds to a 18lb rifle. 5. Cost, no PD would pay that much for a mag, EVER, been counters would flip. Military can buy factory HK for less. Could probably think of more but this is getting long... BrenLover
