WTB: FAL 5 round metric magazine

A used, metric magazine in reliable, working condition is fine with me. I don't care what the finish looks like, except no rust anywhere. Of course, a new one would be great, too. If you have two to sell, I'll buy both if the price is right.

Please PM me with price, shipping cost and preferred payment method. Thanks!

I want to try hunting deer with my FAL and need 5 rd mags to be legal in the woods as well as save a bit of weight. It's not so much the $25 price that DSA wants for their new magazines, it's the $15 postage on top of it that I think is so unreasonable.

Thanks! I saw that--in fact, the first bid is mine. When I got outbid, I came here since I'd be just as happy with a used one and hoped to get it on the cheap. Silly me.

Still want 5rd mags

I put in two more bids, but got outbid each time, so I'm still in the market for a five round magazine or two. Thanks for any assistance you can provide.

I hate the 15 minute rule!

I don't know what Midway charges, but they are offering 5, 10, 20 and 30 round DSA mags.

They're backordered on the 5 round mags.

No sweat. It was an auction. You wanted it more than I did.

for anyone else reading this;
I have made several 5 rounders for hunting. They are easy to make with a dremmel style cut off wheel. Just copy the cuts at the bottom of the mag at the new terminus where you want it to be. Set the floorplate on and gently work the edges over with a small ball peen hammer.

I gauged the new depth by disassembling the mag bottom, insert 5 rounds into the mag, measuring to the bottom of the follower and adding a small bit for the compressed spring. You will want to cut your spring too. I cut mine at about 1/2 it's OAL.

The ones I have made have all worked great, and DSA doesn't get to hose me on shipping.
