    JW15 Magazine

    Right, so somehow I've mislaid my JW15 mag.

    As anyone who does this regularly knows, the best way to find it is to buy another one, whereupon the original will appear in plain sight.

    They seem bloody expensive... Broncos $105, Crafty's $69 etc etc and $25 second hand from https://allgunsports.co.nz/.

    GC has a 10 round CZ polymer mag for $80.

    Anyone used allgunsports before? They kosher?

    Else it looks like the 10 round polymer mag from GC might be the best option?

    Any other options?

    Regards
    Dave

    Buy the poly 10 round. Never had a problem with one. The 9 round steel one sucks a bit.

    I prefer the five round mags as they sit flush with the bottom of the stock. The ten round sticks out below and is always right where you want to put your hand to carry the gun.

    And the 10 rd mags are awkward if you carry the gun slung over your shoulder.
    @davetapson I have a couple of 5 rd steel mags spare if you want them. Just have to find them lol.

    That'd be great, if they aren't self-disappearing ones like mine...

    Just think how many rabbits, magpies and deer you'll miss with a 5 rounder. In my case it would be five every reload. That's why a 10 round mag is imperative for me...

    All 6 of my 5 rounders work flawlessly in both my Brno Mod2s: a mix of CZ, Brno, and JW15 mags. The other 9 round one can be a tad finicky, mostly if it's got anything touching it, as the fit is just a tad loose in the magwell and it presents the cartridge slightly too nose up. That could be fixed I'm sure, just haven't.

    It's nice having several loaded mags in top pocket. More time spent doing what you're doing, rather than loading loose rounds into a magazine with cold fingers, the part empty box gets floppy and emptying from the tray can be tricky, blah blah

    You obviously live in a far more target-rich environment than me . Finding a possum on the dairy areas of Taranaki is difficult , and there just arent that many rabbits where I live , so five rounds are convenient and much better handling in the rifle . But I wish I had access to your level of small game ... ;-(
