I recently sold my MP40 and have a number of mags that did not go with the gun. Most are normal WWII German mags, but one is an older non-ribbed MP38 mag.

 

What is the current price for each?

 

Thanks

 

Ken

Condition and year matters.  Pictures?

Hi, I think what above poster said was absolutely correct. Dates and condition matter. For example, I have a "collector" set of MP40 mags and a "shooter" set of MP40 mags. I have paid quite recently as little as $85 plus shipping for decent slab side mags and up to $200 for a nice "collector" mag (ayf 42 minty). These prices all come from gunbroker. MP41 clips seem to go for a bit less as collectors prefer "real" MP40 mags for their gun but they function the same and I really like them. I have picked up MINTY MP41 mags for like $90. Well, hope this helps. Take care, Haenelistklasse

 

 

PS On the MP38 mag, there is one on gunbroker for like $400 that is just sitting there. I would say on that mag probably like $200-$250 if it is a nice one to the right buyer.

I'd say $100 to $150 depending on condition.

I wonder if there would be a market for new production MP40 mags?   I know I would purchase quite a few.

i paid $100 each for absolute mint steyr mags from Folke about a year ago...now id sell them for $135-150

 

i think good condition mags are $90-110 range depending on condition...the prices have risen in the past year....many of my shooter grades were $80-90....now id list them for $110

 

slab side add $30 or so

I dont even use the factory MP40 mags. I have a dozen vigneron mags that i use for shooting. They are $20-$25 and after a little grinding they really work well in the MP 40

If I could buy new mags that were quality built but half the price, would use them when I shoot the MP40.  Would save the real deal mags and store in my safe.

I have a few pictures. I'm trying to find the best hosting site.

 

7 mags have nice original finish, some have a few small dents

4 mags have thin original finish

1 mag is refinished

 

a few are marked MP41 and Schmeisser

a few are marked kur and either 43 or 44

one is marked gqm 42

one is marked fox 42

one is marked 98E 42

 

Are any of these rare markings?

98e i believe is steyr....when i bought mine i asked them to look for all Steyr as i read they were more reliable...i think you will find steyr will sell a bit higher or at least faster

 

i saw a gqm in my pile too

 

just different manufacturers...i dont think any are a gold mine

 

id list the 7 nice ones in 1 group, and the 4 others in another group to maximize $$

 

the mp41 ones should be listed by themselves...i believe a form member has some of these and they wouldnt fit his gun...they should be advertised as mp41's

I probably  would not call any of these mags rare but the fxo 42 is a better code. If it is in really nice condition you can get a premium for it. Like another forum member said the MP41 mags do not work in all MP40s. In fact, I traded two MP40 mags to another forum member because he bought two MINTY MP41 mags that would not work in his I think Erb tube gun. The MP41 mags work fine in an Erb tube gun and a pair of C&R MP40s that I own. I might be interested in your gqm 42 mag depending on condition as I don't have one of those and might be interested in one or both MP41 mags depending on condition. Take care, Haenelistklasse

Seeing as how this page is also for MP43/44s, I’ll put a question to the forum.
I need a complete MP43/44 SAFETY LEVER which means with the flat spring and pivot. I have sources for just the lever but that isn’t going to do the job.

I bought a very nice 98E 40 at a local gun show last month from a dealer who had a large display.  He was asking $80 and I bought it for $60.  I don't think he knew what he had.

He knew he had a mag he got for $10 years ago and got 60.   Or maybe he knew there are well over 100 magazines per registered gun in the US, and that once the price rises to a point, someone will make them and prices will fall?  The American retail market always fascinates me!  I'll never pay over 50, and the last Vig mags I got last year were $5, but they will require 3-5 minutes of work to fit.
