Since you are in the business of fine sheet metal forming, it would probably be no sweat to make a run of these and sell them to vendors like Numrich or just list them for sale along side your magazines.
Sell em yourself and reap the profits for the effort--capitalism at its best.

I think a replacement mag for Savage early style in 25-20 / 32-20. These are really hard to find.

Not a .22lr mag, but the Savage 99 mag might be worth looking at. Savage has finally given up even the minimal support of magazines for the 99, and repops currently run just a little less than what the factory was selling their for before they ended production (~$50/ea.) AFAIK, there were only ever 2 sizes made 300Sav/308Win/243Win and the shorter 22Sav/250-3000 length mag.

Regardless, they'd be a lot less fiddly & easier to make [larger radius bends, etc] than a 22lr mag and possibly add another revenue stream.

^ I'll agree with that.

Those parts do not appear to be overly complex. I'll add them to the list of things to look into.

My current .22lr projects are on hold while we work through a number of centerfire restocks and a few much needed machine overhauls.. We are still waiting on our CNC laser welding machine. We ordered a machine with a small footprint so it was a custom made machine, most of the units they make have robotic arms and we only needed a simple 3 axis machine as the welds will be straight lines for the most part.
