Default Reproduction Snail mag.

Is there such a thing as an affordable repro. trommel mag that is satisfactory to shoot with? I'd like to have one at the range, and while I don't mine the investment of an original I'd sweat breaking it, so a repop. is probably more up my alley.
Who makes them, is there a source, and what will I have to pay?
Thanks;
dju

The only repros that I've seen or heard of were Japanese made for there non-guns, and will not fit into a real luger, and even if modified to do so, will not function. TH

Working repros are to have from Germany,made in Poland what I heard.
I have one and this one works very well.
But also the repros are not really cheap,I paid 550 Euros.
Also the loading tool repros are to have .

Stefan, I have one and this one works very well.
Have you loaded and shot it? If so, any report to give? Feeds and functions?
Please give some more detail because I haver yet to hear a report from anyone who has loaded and fired one of these reproduction drums.

Thanks, Jerry

Hi Jerry,
I dont have the correct loading tool ,so I used a plastic magazine loader for a SIG P210.
With this I was able to load 22 rounds.Fired all,without a problem.Pistol : LP08 1917 and VOPO P08

I found the seller on a german military forum and bought the magazine directly from him.
He offers the magazines and loaders from time to time on egun,clearly declared a working reproductions:

The german company TRANSARMS has the loading tools also for sale

Stefan, Thank you for that report..It is a good thing to know that these reproduction drums do indeed shoot.
Someone should contact the maker of these drums and tell them their drums can easily be told from originals and they would be doing their future buyers a service by not artificially aging the drums with spots of ugly rust. I suspect this practise was meant to decieve the general public. This small larceny aside..if a reproduction drum could be had at reasonable cost it might seem wise to employ them for shooting.
