Wisner is now making metal replacements and Trekker Design and Manufacturing is making higher quality 3D plastic mags.

Brno rimfire magazines are difficult to find as well. Long discontinued, many CZ aficianados really preferred the Brno magazines which have no floor plate and are nearly flush with the bottom of the rifle, vs. later made which have a base plate that sticks out.

Some good ideas here, I hope some good comes of this.

The two that I've been having the most difficulty finding are Brno 581/511 mags and Gevarm A6 mags, any capacity. I would also like to see a source for Husqvarna 622/1622 rifles. Thanks and good luck.

Smile Can I play , too ?

Colt .25 Auto magazines for the model 1908 vest pocket gun . Colt .32 Auto mags for the 1903 , and , .380 Auto for the 1908 models . CZ 24 magazines in .380 ACP , but , that would be a small market .

Not to derail the OP request; the first thing that came to mind was my Cooper 36 and the fact that I only had the one mag that came with the rifle. Cooper support stated, "no inventory" with no plans to make any more. An internet search leads me to this place - http://hoosiergunworks.com/catalog/magazine_rifle.html where I found the Savage M65 mag was a match as a replacement so I ordered the (3) they had on hand. They fit & work perfectly . . . I see they have more in stock so I should buy a couple more.

Back on track with the OP thread - Browning Challenger II & III mags would have my greatest interest.

Yes!!!!! I was about to post this. Magazines are very expensive, sought after and hard to find in .22lr caliber for the Walther TPH pistol

I remember I had a very hard time finding 'good' magazines for a Squire-Bingham .22lr rifle years ago as well. The Triple K magazines I was able to source were junk. The only one that worked reliably and fit well was the 15rd that came with it, which I believe was the original mag. I think it might have come with another 10rd (factory) mag as well, but my memory is hazy on that.

I would vote for a magazine for the 22 cal Springfield 1922 or 1922m1 training rifles. Originals for the first model go for $250.00 and up depending on condition. I believe the magazine will work in both the original 1922 model and the 1922m1, the M2 rifle is different however.

How about Springfield M1922 Series magazines

I was thinking Springfield M1922 magazines for one of the finest .22s ever.. There are 3 variations, the extended original for the unaltered Model of 1922, very rare and expensive ($300+ IF you are lucky enough to even find one for sale without a rifle). The Model of M1922M1 magazine is also rare and expensive, and the far more common M1922M2 magazines.

For a manufacturing and demand standpoint, the M1922M2 would be the best choice as many of the older rifles were updated to M2 specs so the total number of rifles taking that magazine is greater. Additionally, many owners would like a spare without the $100 cost of an original M2. They do have a unique floorplate with a notched gripping area.

Another area you might be able to explore is the single shot loading device that inserts like a magazine but provides a tray for aligning a single round with the chamber for single shot loading.

Tikka T1x mags cost $35 and lots of folks are reporting feeding issues. I don't have mine yet so I don't know but if the problem's in the mag maybe you can do better.

Speaking not of mini-14's, but mini-30's. This rifle https://ruger.com/products/americanR...ets/16976.html uses Ruger Mini-30 mags. And I think this may be a very popular rifle. You might see if that's a viable sweet spot for you. 10 rounders minimum would probably be the market.

Also, the CZ carbine in 7.62x39 uses 5 round single column mags and it would be nice to have a few more capacity. Since it's single column the length of the mag could get problematic quickly. Even 10 rds might be excessive. But I've seen a few people mention that 8 rounds would be nice.

Colt Woodsman, and Hammerli 208.

I've heard the new 106/107 High Standard Magazines are pretty good but no experience.

New Ultra Light Arms - NULA

Would certainly talk to Melvin Forbes at NULA - New Ultra Light Arms. Called there the other day to order a Model 20 Rimfire Repeater action, he told me that he had lost his magazine source, and was trying to resolve that issue. Am guessing that is a conversation NULA would be open to.

http://newultralightarms.com/

I know that I would like it resolved, as Melvin is reluctant to take an order for his Rimfire Repeater at this point....

The only magazines that I've been unable to find (& need) are those for the Colt/Walther Gold Cup Trophy, a 1911 pistol in .22LR (Gun Part #5170306). Magazines that were once available are; 10-round - Part #517604, and 12-round - Part #517602. I think the magazines are Walther part numbers only. The gun came with a single 12-round magazine. Every listing for both of these magazines show "Out Of Stock" or "On Back Order". I wrote Walther about this annoying dilemma and got a response to the effect of "they're on back order" (Duh!). I couldn't tell you if there's a viable market for them, I just know I need 5 more of the 12-rounders, or 6 of the 10-rounders (if no 12's can be had). Prices I've seen range from a low of about $22 on up to about $40 each (Ouch!).

High Standard Triple-K magazines ("slant grip") notes: I have an original 50's Supermatic and have a total of 5 Tri-K magazines for it (& 1 factory HS original). One Tri-K has some fairly serious age & use on it and still functions perfectly. The 4 younger ones also all work flawlessly, but might only have a few hundred rounds thru each. With that said, I've read where some (other) people say the feed lips are not hard enough, but I've wondered if it's just a quality control issue of inconsistent hardening? I didn't have to tweak any of mine either, they've all been perfect right from the packages.
