FOURBUX 22 Posted August 7, 2012 Report Share Posted August 7, 2012 In light of several manufacturers talking about metal box mags, but nothing coming to fruition, I've started the process of looking at cost and prototyping box magazines. Assuming there is interest, I am basing the prototypes around the ultra reliable factory 5-round mag, and will ideally expand the idea to all sizes - 2, 5, 8, 10, and 12. My idea is that people seem to have such a vested interest in factory magazines that they command $150-$200 used for a factory 8-round magazine, and if I could produce US made 922 compliant magazines as reliable as factory spec and keep the cost <$100, I think this would be good for the platform as a whole. Before I go through the trouble and cost, I'd like to gauge the community's interest in metal box magazines. Would you be interested in metal box magazines? What sizes would you most like to see? What price(s) would you pay for various capacities? What would you want them made of? Aluminum? Steel? Another metal? CNC or sheet metal construction? Please bear in mind that this is an initial gauging of interest, and that nothing beyond CADD spec work has gone into this venture. I hope the community is as excited about this idea as I am, but perhaps this idea (or rather, its place in the market) is already better covered by existing manufacturers.
