Default cetme 308 magazines?

looking for a good place to buy good mags for my cetme 308. I would like to have some over 20 rounds, but if I can't I will settle for high quality 20 round mags. I want to go pig hunting son and feel like I'll need as much amo as I can have. lol

I have some I'd be willing to sell. Original steel cetme mags. I think I have leather pouches also.

I have some original 20 round HK G3 mags oiled and still wrapped in factory paper. I could be wrong, but believe the cetme uses the same mags... I’d be willing to sell 5 or so. How many you looking for?

Don’t remember where I bought mine, but they were around $10-$12 each when purchased.

I have a few hundred used steel ones and would gladly give you a few.

HK mags are hit or miss on a CETME. Some will fit perfectly and some have to be filed on. The best way to reliably use HK mags in a CETME is to file down the bottom of the mag well.

Edit: CETME mags differ from HK mags in that they are curved instead of straight and neither were designed to be interchangeable.

I'd just file down the tabs on the mag, only takes a few seconds. Better to deface a $0.50 mag than an entire rifle.

$.50 mag? You're living in yesteryear man! Those mags have skyrocketed in value over the years and are now worth between $1-3 depending on condition

Yeah, I bought what I thought was 20 about a year ago. Vendor ended up shipping me WAY more. I haven't even counted them all and I loaded 50 of them. Still have a couple of wrapped bricks of mags ready for ammo. Crazyiness!

The amount needed to be removed is small and not noticeable at all. Use spray paint to touch it up.

I have paid 40 to 50 bucks for a G3 mag back when they were hard to come by. When cheaper than dirt had them for 97 cents each I bought thousands of them and the were mostly new.
