    OK so now that your a member and your among fellow HK enthusiasts share a picture of your production equipment. I would find it interesting.

    Because you didn’t buy a $35-$40 HK mag? Bostic has them for like $25 all day long. There are plenty of trade ins that can beat that price down too.

    Why would you go to the trouble of making USA mags only to include “Made In Germany”? Doesn’t that kinda defeat the purpose?

    When I was younger, I used play doh and children's glue to make a copy of Han Solo's blaster from the current action figure line at the time. It didn't go very well.

    3 part high temperature silicone mold with one injection hole and one venting hole. A real pain in the ass to make. A stabilizing bracket holds them together in the proper orientation and it all goes into a pressurized chamber in an oven (just a modified pressure pot and an oven). I'm using a glass reinforced urethane polymer which can be injected without having to heat at high temperature like nylon. Nylon is thermal setting so there would be considerable dimensional change and molds would have to be slightly larger to account for this or they would be out of spec. Glass reinforced urethane polymer has very little dimensional change and the high temperature and pressure in the oven only makes for a stronger casting. Plenty adequate for a 922(r) compliant range magazine.

    Sure, printing USA made G36 magazines would be easier, but without the gigantic mess to clean up and all the cursing, yelling, and throwing stuff, I just don't see the point.

    1. That is not an injection mold. That is a silicone mold. There isn’t remotely 20k there. The castings that would generate are not even remotely the strengths necessary to have a functional mag.

    2. If you went to the trouble of casting a mag body, then why didn’t you sand off the Made in Germany so there would be no doubt as to origin?

    3. I am guessing floor plates and base plates were successful, but if you drop a loaded mag the floor plate will crack. I doubt the mag bodies were successful.

    Look, I can make silicone molds too, but they are not going to result in castings with the color and opacity of the factory mags. Sorry, but I just don’t buy it.
