Nosebleed high, if you can find one. I think one went for over $350 on Ebay. Not positive, but mu recollection.

If you have to have one

I guess if you have to have one, you have to pay the price.
I wonder if these are the highest priced .22 mags????

I would say 37 mags have been going for between $225 and $250.

" . . . I wonder if these are the highest priced .22 mags???? . . ."

Nope, not even close: original Steyr Zephyr mags are more expensive (for example).

These are as good if not better than an original --- highly recommended.

There is a 5 shot mag on the Evil Bay right now starting at $250.

a couple of 5 shot mags for my 37s and both allow the bullet to shave a bit of lead off the top when chambering. I haven't tried to determine if this is detrimental to benchrest accuracy, but I usually load single rounds by hand. Someday I may try to see.

I'm not sure if the shape of bullets from the 40s and 50s were different in the driving band location or diameter and they didn't shave like current stock does.

are no alternatives to original 37 mags at this time, if you want one you need to pay the freight and it seems that many do.

I am having this problem with another brand of rifle I have:
cycles OK but I am getting erratic accuracy that I can only attribute to the 'dings' the
bullet gets while being loaded into the chamber.

(I inspected a number of un-fired rounds after being cycled through the rifle.
There were a variety of marks and 'flattening' spots on various rounds ---
depending on their position in the magazine.)

Still trying to figure out a solution other than single feeding.

The difficulty in getting damage-less feeding right every time is almost certainly why target rifles are single shot.

I have a smattering of both five shot mags and single shot adaptors for my 37s and single shot them all anyway for the very reason you mention greg - same for 52's for that matter.

Having said all this, if one has never held a 37 mag, you'll really appreciate the workmanship as it is very heavy and a fully milled part - as opposed to the stamped/tacked 52 mag. Perhaps makes it a little easier to pay up

The original Springfield Model of 1922 magazine brings upward of $500.0 if you can find one. This was the longer, 5-shot version that extended about 5/8" out the bottom of the rifle.
