    Can someone tell me what was a decent price for HK45 Compact magazines (8 round and 10 round) prior to all the BS after the New Town shootings and the latest big push by the gun-grabbers.

    What are they going for now?

    I need to buy a few for my HK45 compact and my USP 45 ACP Compact

    Thanks
    RJ

    10 round HK45CTs were ~$59-$69 before Hitler came after our guns.
    Now try ~$89.95 if you can find them.
    These are actually in stock - for now...

    8 round $69

    These mags, particularly the 10 rounders, are hard to come by these days.

    Wise decision.

    I know the price stings.
    But once you have them in hand you'll be glad you got them.

    I paid $49.95 for the ten rounder 2 days ago. They didn't have eight rounders.
    They were usually $59 before this panic, and about $90 in most places.
    But I'm keeping a list of retailers who are jacking prices now and will not buy from them in the future, even if they lower prices when it all settles.

    The 45 mags were always expensive compared to their other calibers (not counting the fancy jet funnel mags).

    I remember paying $33/mag for my USPC/P2000 357 mags years ago. I think when I bought a dozen 8rd mags for my USPC45 it was $47/mag. That was in 2011.

    Thankfully I can use the same mags in my 45C.

    True. I got my first HK, a USPc .45, in 2004. The mags for it were almost $50 then.

    There is no apparent reason for them being proportionately more expensive; they are built the same as every other metal magazine HK makes (that is to say, excellent and bulletproof).

    Maybe they produce fewer of them, for a higher cost-per-unit.

    Whatever the cause/reason, they are one of the most expensive current-production magazines extant.

    And worth every dime...

    Before all this BS, I was getting 8 round mags for $60 each.
