    Long story short. I lost my mag while out hunting and don't have a spare

    None in the country that i can find and my local store is attempting to get one through the Ruger importer, but I've just been told another 4 weeks (already been 2 months!)

    I'm hoping that one of you may have one of these mags spare lying around that i can buy

    Rat's, my 22 250 mag broke its plastic tab off the front, luckily have one in 6.5 which seems same size and works.
    130 seems steep for plastic junk, it's hardly magpul quality

    Oh, I've never had any problems with quality. Quite happy to pay $130 just so I can use my rifle again...

    They are US$32 from Brownells.
    I got a spare a few years back.
    Probably only us$10 postage.
    If you can wait a few weeks for an import permit, and then another week for delivery... will cost you ~$65 landed...

    That was an option I was looking at, but Brownells will not ship the mag out of the U.S

    Write to them and check, they ship most parts unless it is ITAR restricted, even then i have had a number of ITAR parts exported without issue from them...
    Currently i have a few parts on there way that said the same thing...

    Just tried adding various brands of mags to the cart. Seems selective of which ones they say they won't ship from U.S.
