    I have some 92 mags, but they would probably try to extradite me if I tried to mail some of them to you.

    I bought a few surplus M9 mags on the secondary market for about $12 each recently and they were still in the sealed baggies.

    Thanks John...I’ll look at those ones. Some magnification would be nice to make identification more sure but no shots will likely happen over 100 yds anyway.

    Yeah, you’re bang on for the terrain here. Easy long shots over 200 yds are rare here on the Southcoast of B.C. If you move up further north and east toward the centre of the southern interior you can find easier hiking and shooting.

    Update, here may be a Mag option for you for $22 each. The mags are dimpled to prevent more than 10 rounds (I'm not sure what your laws are, it may be a terrible idea)

    Yeah, I typically don't get more than 75 yard shots.

    There are a few exceptions from strip mining where the mines bulldozed the area flat, and along some portions of logging roads, but 0-50 yards is normal.

    Not a terrible idea at all John. But, I don’t think they’re allowed to ship north of the 49th.

    If I get a chance, I’ll check out a gun show coming up in a couple weeks and who knows what I’ll find. Might find something used for a reasonable price.

    Crappy thing is, we don’t have gun shows very often up here. Couple a year...that’s it.

    We have a small local one here.

    Most people want msrp prices for everything.

    I went and looked at the Beretta website and it ONLY takes Beretta mags. The guy in the gun store may have brainfart-blurted "Glock" mags, hence my confusion. Or maybe I was thinking the KelTec carbine... The new Ruger carbine will take Glock mags if you change the adapter...

    You never mentioned: are you 10rds max in the magazines?

    Made it a his, and hers day at the gun shop
    She got the M&P Shield .380, and I got a Hi Point. I've already took the hideous fixed sights off, and dropped my Sightmark reflex sight on it.[​IMG]

    Can't own a Hi Point carbine in New York?! Even though they have only ten round magazines? Take care. Tom Worthington

    I think it has to do with configuration. Watermonkey has built a 9mm AR carbine, and working on a second.

    So what about the "featureless " grips. Where they basically make a pistol grip, that you can't get your thumb around? Those a no-no also?

    There's no true guidance. Maybe. The thordsden stock isn't even guaranteed to be legal but appears to not be a pistol grip. No legal precedent and the law is very vague.

    Even making it a "fixed" magazine rifle isn't very specific. Doesn't say permanent modification. So not sure if some devices used to make it fixed are good to go.

    People are using best judgement and using good faith adherence to the law.

    Apparently,High Tower Armory is about to release a new bullpup stock for the Hi-Point rifles. The best part is that it can also use higher capacity magazines that they're developing.

    Yeah, we’re limited to 10 rd mags. However, before you send me condolences...because of our @$$backwards laws and because it’s a pistol caliber that we’re allowed to have more than 5 rds in a semi-auto centerfire rifle....don’t ask why. It makes no sense to anyone with more than half a brain or without a socialist agenda.

    The problem is most of us law abiding gun owners actually read the regs and do our best to try to make sense of it. But when the face palming and head banging start...it’s a just a lost cause.

    Range report.....
    Immediately removed the factory sights, and put my ole Sightmark on, went on with no issues. Put a new batt in the sight.

    50 rounds, 1 FTE while the wife was shooting, it did half chamber the next round though.

    The spring loaded, recoil reducing stock hangs up sometimes, and will pop out unexpectedly while your lining up a shot.

    I can hit 4 inch round swingers, at 25 yards pretty regular if I slow fire. From standing freehand.

    I will be feeding it 124 gr. NATO ammo exclusively. If it proves reliable in function I will keep a mag of 124 HST at the ready. And it will be a go-to, for the wife, for times I'm not home. The controls are simple enough, and she is comfortable with the recoil of the NATO ammo.[​IMG]

    Looks like PSA is getting in on another 9mm pistol caliber.

    For you scorpion owners, they use scorpion magazines and PSA is also releasing a 35 round scorpion magazine with metal feedlips that will be compatible with both of those guns. @nitesite did you hear that? 35 round scorpion magazines :)
