Contacted Walther, and they directed me to Earl's Gun Shop. Apparently Earl has the mags in stock. Pricey, but available. Thanks again.

A Winchester Model 67. Single-shot, bolt-action .22 rifle. My Mom bought it for me, along with a Velveeta cheese box full of loose ammo, for $10. Not sure of my age, but it was in the 1950's and I...

I almost always carry in a pocket holster, which dictates a small gun. Usually, it's my S&W 642, but sometimes it's a Ruger LCP. For a while, it was a Makarov. Anyway, the gun that will fit in my...

I try to clean my guns every time I shoot them. The exception is my carry gun...It gathers a lot of pocket lint, so I tend to clean it more often. I like Break Free. Never use brass brushes or...

for a carry gun, you want something relatively small, light and dependable. A lot of folks claim that the Hi-Point is dependable, but no one will ever claim that it is small or light. Carrying one...

Yep - It looked just like that. And it did say Norinco Sporter on the side.

These mags did not have that duckbill. I don't know that they were actually AK mags, but they had that appearance. The gun itself had a wooden thumbhole stock and no bayonet, if that helps.

Norinco SKS with removable mag?

I am pretty new to this site, and to SKS rifles. Yesterday, I came across a Norinco SKS with separate magazines. One appeared to be maybe 5-rounds, and the other 30-rounds. They looked like AK-47...

I tried to carry a Glock 27. It might be small, but it's a fat sucker and I had a hell of a time trying to conceal it. My favorite quality semi-auto's are Sigs. You might want to look at a 229 or...

Oops - I misread the topic and answered a question nobody asked. Slivertips in my Kel-Tec and Nyclads in my 642. The Nyclads were recommended to me by an S&W rep a few years back.

I'm kind of a skinny old fart, and I usually wear blue jeans and a tee shirt, so concealment can be problematic.
My favorite carry gun is a Smith & Wesson 642 revolver with CT laser grips...Light,...

Do a search on gunbroker.com. If it's available, it should show up there, and you'll get a good idea of prevailing prices. As for the mags themselves, nothing beats a factory mag.

My personal opinion is that it would be like carrying a brick around all day. I have a friend who's a gun dealer, and he says they are VERY poorly made and tend to break a lot. He sells them, but...

From reading your inquiry, I wouldn't go with a semi-auto. I'd look into a Smith & Wesson 642 revolver. Dependable, durable, light, easy to carry, well-known brand, doesn't require much cleaning. ...
