Did you know that HK made far fewer Steel G3 Magazines than they made aluminum G3 magazines? The difference in numbers is astonishing with the number of G3 Steel Magazines being between 1,000,000 and 5,000,000 and aluminum magazine production being 60,000,000+ by most estimates.
From a completely different perspective, consider these G3 Steel Magazines as a potential investment vehicle. Less than 10 years ago FN/FAL magazines were selling for $5 each and today they are selling for $25+ at most retailers.

I bought 10 of these mags and all, except one that was covered in rust, showed very little wear and function excellently! Although with TLC the rusted one was cleaned up and it functions flawlessly! I am very satisfied with this purchase.
Bought 10. Great shape. @
Bought 10. 2 looked brand new, the others were used excellent. Am buying 10 more as finances permit,
Bought 4 to give to a friend. One mag was new, and the other mags have seen light use, but none had dents or other disfunction. Two HK 59 and 61 dates, Two unmarked no date. Recommend these mags if you have a G3 or clone. If you drop a loaded one onto concrete on to the corner, it won't split like the aluminium ones.
I already have a pretty good stash of steel G3 mags, but am always looking for more to throw on the pile if the price is right. Ordered a couple with my last order. A little scratched up, but no dents. Function perfectly.
I bought 20 steel magazines. Seventeen (all Rheinmetall) magazines were brand new with storage marks. Two (HK) magazines were used with slight rust. One (Rheinmetall) magazine had moderate rust all over the magazine. I would still buy these again.
Batch #1 Excellent!
I got 15 more steel mags, all were in excellent condition, all of them fit fine and locked up tight in my rifle. they were all dated in the 60"s, Ordered on Saturday receive them Thursday ,like the fast shipping.
I order 5 steel mags, they were all in excellent shape not bad for something made in the 60's. They don't look to have been used if at all. Will be getting more.
This was my 1st steel mag, I don't think it was ever in a rifle, it will serve me well and still be around for my grand kids. very fast shipping
2 mags first 1 new cond. 2nd new cond but dented. Fit and function great in PTR91
Got a pack of 10 of these as soon as they came back in stock. Four of them showed wear with a little rust. The rest either came factory wrapped or bagged. One came in a waxy type wrap. Shipped amazingly fast. Again, can't beat the pricing! Thanks!
I have 4 of these steel HK mags that I use in my Cetmes and only wish I could get more of them
While the HK G3 and Cetme both use the same mags the Cetme was made for use with the Steel mags and I like to have period correct mags when possible
These are nice mags that are well made and work perfectly in the Cetme's
I'll definitely be buying more of them as soon as they get back in stock again
Hit or miss on these, if you get good ones they are a great deal. The aluminum ones (NEW SURPLUS) are excellent.
Sorry. These were not worth shipping.Not surface rust but deep into body, follower and spring. Many had come apart .The new aluminum mags are a good deal.
Cant go wrong for the price. Thank you Keep Shooting!
Good price, buy them while they are still around.
10 mags with shipping: $30 @ KS, $45 @ CTD, $60 @ CS (KY).
Thanks KS! Just waiting for restock.
I just received another batch of ten mags. A lot of light surface rust and some small dents. Followers have just a few specks of light rust. All appear to be functional. Thanks KS!
Just received another 10 units. Two floor plates off due to distortion. Each successive batch needs a little more rehab work.
Just got my limit of ten. At 1.95 do not expect the results described for 4.95. None were " almost new ". None were " ready to go as received " . All were very rusty and pitted . One was so rusted it could not retain a floor plate .
However , about half Could be functional after thorough cleaning and salvage of parts !
I probably wouldn't pay the normal $4.95 unless I planned to pay the extra for hand-picked magazines, got a lot with rust and dings. One even had the floor plate on the wrong way, took some work to get off. BUT, and I mean this, these are a grab on sale. It takes a few minutes to remove the rust and have a giant deal of a purchase from these. BUY THEM NOW!
Just bought another 10 mags at the $1.95 price. Too much surface rust with this batch. Must be the bottom of the barrel.
I really have to say, after holding both the aluminum and steel mags, the steel are a better quality if weight is not important. The followers were clear while mag bodies had great finishes.
HK mags arrived fast and in excellent condition . Great price for these heavy duty magazines. All items on my order were sealed in plastic and wrapped in newspaper insuring no damage during shipping. Well done.
I bought ten of these mags. Seven of the ten were virtually brand new. Two others would have been in excellent condition except they had some slight surface rust (no problem to get off). Only one mag looked well "used." I recently paid twice as much for less quality from another retailer. Get them while you can.
I order some of these steel mags they were in great shape with no FTF will be buying more. Thanks a lot.
3 of 4 were new, the other had blue tape on it. All still fed great.
I prefer these over aluminum mags any day. Fast shipping as always, thanks keepshooting for great products.
I purchased 4 of these mags for my cetme rifle and the fit and finish of these mags are perfect, they were not rusted dinged or scratched.
3 of 6 were new, the others have blue tape, that if you try to remove, will leave a nasty goo mess. leave the tape on!!!
Hard to find a steel mag in this good shape for 4.99. Picked up 10 of these and I'd say 7/10 were in excellent shape, 2 were in good shape, and one had some surface rust but I was able to get most of it off. I think these are much more durable than the aluminum mags and only cost about $2 more a piece. I'm very happy overall with this order.
