I have seen the pics on here before, but can anyone tell me where to get the curved 9mm mags for the Colt system? I dont recall if they were 30 or 40 rounders. Any infor is appreciated!

Like this one? I don't know the name of them. I just milled the slot for the mag catch and it worked. [img]http://users.zoominternet.net/~picplace/curved9mmmag.jpg[/img]

Someone once told me they were a variety of madsen mag - a large distributor was selling them for $5/ea. Someone then realized they made good 9mm ar-15 mags and they disappeared from the market. A bit later, JLD Enterprises started selling the converted mags for $35/ea and then I think $45/ea before they finally ran out about a year ago. I got two, and they worked better than either coverted uzi mags or the straight "argentine contract" 40 rounders CDNN was selling, although they do look a bit goofy at first, since a straight mag is the more traditional look. JLD was the only place I've seen sell these in volume, and they've been out of them for a year. I am probably gonna sell my 9mm AR to fund an F/A purchase as soon as I can find someone to sign a form 4 for me. I was gonna keep these because they are somewhat unique as well as my colt mags, but now I'm thinking I'll just sell everything. If I do sell the gun, I'll send you a PM about the mags, if you're interested. Rocko

I think they are 9mm Madsen SMG magazines. I believe it was called a model 50 (thanks Dave H.)

You are correct sir.

I actually, I think they are the for the M/53. The M/50 uses straight mags. I believe the straight M/50 mags can also be used in the M/53, but not vice versa. Both can be adapted for use in the colt AR system. Rocko
