    Other than HK parts or gunbroker is there anywhere else to find 30 rounders? I've looked and googled but cant seem to find any.

    RTG, CTD, Brownells, Midway, etc. I Googled "surplus G3 mags for sale" and found a few other sites. I'd also recommend checking the HK Pro, AK Files, and AR15 forum classifieds. I'm more familiar with the latter two, and see G3/91 guns, mags, and other parts pop up relatively frequently.

    ETA - I'm an idiot. I overlooked the fact you are looking for 30-rounders. My bad. What a Country has them. I'd also repeat that those forums will net you some results, especially if you post in the "WTB" sections.

    May as well buy the 50rd drum for $300, or the 100rd Beta-C mag for $450

    Yeah it's nuts! I just spent $70 on a pre-ban HK93 mag and that's considered a decent deal these days.

    I love that 20rd mags are dirt cheap, for 308. I want at least 1 50rd drum even tho its $250-300 because I love drum mags, plus why not? Lol but for a regular box mag, no.

    That's where I'm at at this point, I'm not paying $50+ for a 30rd mag, but I am planning on getting a drum because of my love for drum mags

    Random question here, but I'm no HK expert/vet at all - has anyone ever modified two 20s into a 30 or 40-rounder? There are quite a few AK guys who mess around with and mod surplus mags. One dude welded five together and posted videos of his perfectly functional (albeit wildly impractical) 150-round banana clipazine.

    With G3 mags usually way cheaper than AK mags (I bought a bunch a couple years ago for about $3 each, and I don't even own the gun!), I'd imagine someone out there would have messed around with some project mags at some point.

    I think anything other than a 20 rounder is a custom mag

    I think the 30s are custom, I don't think theres a standard 30 G3 mag, I know everything with the HK symbol on it is expensive except the G3 20rd mags lol!
