These are LEO only mags, how many would be interesting in a group buy on these to get the price down. Best price I've found so far is $34.25 each.

HK is using regional distributor control to limit competition.

I would be in for six. Thanks, Dan

I'd take 5 to start with.

Sounds quite absurd to re-import them to Europe, but they can't be found here, so if your dealer is willing to take paypal payment & to ship to Europe, I would take [b]four[/b]. Maybe even one of the group buy participants could help me out by taking more and then selling/shipping me four? Regards Cato

Might go down for two, have to see if the boss will actually sign off on them.. :-\

I got ahold of two which I love dearly. I could use one more though.

CKing, Any idea how many mags we would need to order as a minimum? Is the price you quoted-$34.25-the group price? Any other details would be appreciated. Thanks, Dan

I would be interested in 4 mags.
Link Posted: 6/20/2003 4:52:14 AM EDT
I'd be in for #4 PP out

If you can get us a firm price & quantity, I will probably be in for at least 5-6. Edited to Add: I will check around with my agency & others in our county to see how many other officers might be interested, once we firm up the price.

We've got to get to the 100 range before we will see a good price. I don't know if we can make that level. I could buy them myself but then I would want to mark them up, which defeats the purpose of a group order.
Link Posted: 6/20/2003 11:31:39 AM EDT
Just need to verify, these are not post-ban legal, correct? Since I'm not LE, I therefore (unfortunately)can't participate. I hear they are of very high quality. Too bad for me, I guess...
Link Posted: 6/20/2003 6:16:42 PM EDT
I would be in for at least 3 maybe more. Lynn coltm4@ameritech.net

is anyone offering anything that would allow me to trade existing mags in for HK mags?
Link Posted: 6/20/2003 11:26:18 PM EDT
uhhhh.. Do I need to be LE? [:E] Seriously, let us know if you all might like to arrange another one after September '04' (assuming the best).
Link Posted: 6/22/2003 2:13:21 PM EDT
What is needed proof of law officer, or FFL, that's the only group that can get these. The Steel SA80 mags are in DSA for $15.00 but these are the old models. What we are after is the new design Steel HK SA80/A2 mags which somebody posted some pics of I believe.
Link Posted: 6/22/2003 8:18:46 PM EDT
depending on the final price, I am interested in 3-6.
Link Posted: 6/23/2003 9:18:04 PM EDT
what would we need for proof jut out commision cards or would they want letter head and all that?
Link Posted: 6/24/2003 12:47:42 PM EDT
I will check it out, but since your are buying them not your department, just a copy of your current LEO card. Anybody else up to date on proof required for LEO only mags? //

The dealer/distributor will be required to get the letterhead request and keep it on file, regardless if the sale is to an agency or individual officer. I have never seen anything that actually spells out a requirement for a sale between individual officers, although most seem satisfied with a copy of LE ID to ensure that they are actually selling to an LEO.
Link Posted: 6/26/2003 11:24:49 PM EDT
LEO ID is all thats required. Post a firm price when you get it, the best I can do around me is $40.60.
Link Posted: 6/27/2003 7:27:46 PM EDT
I would take 10.
Link Posted: 6/28/2003 10:12:00 AM EDT
If these are the new HK M16/M4 mags i'll take at least 10 and maybe more depending on the price. Please let me know.
Link Posted: 6/29/2003 6:16:42 AM EDT
OK, I'll call this week and get a firm price on 100 units. Will post the amount

PUT ME DOWN FOR 3 EMAIL ME WHEN READY FOR SHIPPMENT KJULIANI@YAHOO.COM

I'm in Italy , do I need to show any LEO ID ? I do not think.......,pls e-mail me when ready to ship them out @ ggijoe@hotmail.com PP out
Link Posted: 6/30/2003 7:46:47 AM EDT
PP, I think the label on some LEO mags give the definite answer- they say LEO/military/export only. I guess one of the few advantages living in the EC is that we fall under the export clause... So if the dealer is willing to ship to Europe- no legal problem. Greetings from Austria Cato

Sorry to inform you guys but my regional H&K supplier isn't willing to give much on a deal for 100 mags. price individually is $39.00 price for 100 is $37.00 So it is not worth the hassle. Anybody a FFL in PA that deals with Jerry's Sport center? I have always found them the cheapest but they won't ship to me in Florida because it is not there territory. Would be curious what they are charging.
Link Posted: 7/4/2003 8:47:35 AM EDT
I will take 7.
Link Posted: 7/6/2003 5:56:12 AM EDT
If anybody is going to buy some H&K mags on his own & is willing to ship to Europe & take paypal, please let me know! Any chance one of the E&E dealers will jump in and offer these mags? Dealing with them is sooo much more comfortable than with some unknown H&K dealer. Thanks Cato

CKing My HK LE dealer commented to me that the military recently placed an order for 1,000,000 of the magazines. He doesn't think HK has that type of stock, and figures it may be awhile before supplies come out for LEO or dealers. Have you heard anything similar?
Link Posted: 7/7/2003 10:38:58 AM EDT
Heard the same thing, but last time I checked HK had 5000 in stock. I imagine the goverment, will get them cheap and on the installment plan.
Link Posted: 7/7/2003 4:56:45 PM EDT
I just spoke to a LE dealer in Washington state. His price is $40, no matter what quantity. I'm interested in four if the deal is still going. Thanks. G2
Link Posted: 7/9/2003 6:28:58 AM EDT
Best price I could get at 100 was $37, and $39 for any quantity. So I'm not seeing as worth while effort to save maybe $10 for average buyer and my bookkeeping.
Link Posted: 7/15/2003 11:16:40 PM EDT
Some business on the EE boards has them for somewhere in the mid to high thirty dollar range. These are supposed the be THE BEST mags out there. Yes, these are LEO restricted.
Link Posted: 7/16/2003 10:30:11 PM EDT
Are there any dealers on the web that are selling the HK mags? If so could someone post the site please? Thank you![8D]
Link Posted: 7/17/2003 9:40:28 PM EDT
If you check the HK site for LE dealers you will see a list to contact. Davidson's says they will have a quantity in about 30 days. The price is still around $40. G2
Link Posted: 7/17/2003 10:16:03 PM EDT
These guys have a good amount in stock: [url]http://www.eliteguns.com/[/url] Give them a call. They are a great bunch that provide excellent service.
Link Posted: 7/18/2003 7:08:36 PM EDT
Thanks guys! gunnertwo...I called Davidson's and they said (38) bucks each. Im headed to the station on Monday and getting the letterhead faxed [:)]
Link Posted: 7/21/2003 1:26:24 PM EDT
http://www.calssportingarmory.com/HKLEMags.htm has H&K mags for US$ 38.-. I don't know if CAL's can export LEO mags. Are the H&K mags so much better than USGI mags (such as the LEO mags offered by http://www.sawlesales.com/ for US$ 18.-)?
