US suppliers to the EU. Suggestions?

Once more I'm looking for recommendations for companies that will send me bits for my guns. Last time it was holsters, this time it is magazines.

Over some parts are monitored, such as barrels, but fortunately mags are not.

I want to buy a Ruger MkIII 512 mag (or two).

None of the shops can get them here, so I'm looking to order from either the US, or EU stockists.

In any case they are NOT cheap here: €45 for a Ruger .22 magazine!!

If you know a good company with good prices, I'd be happy to have their details.

Even better if you know for a fact they ship overseas. (You'd be surprised how many do not.)

Thanks

No suggestions from me but I was wondering what a Walther P99 magazine goes for at your local shop. Around here they are typically around $60 to $65 or about €50, give or take. I don't know what Waffen Franconia sells them for but that's also what their catalog costs, delivered. At least I can buy CDs direct from Austria at an average price of about €10 but I'm probably the last person in town buying whole CDs and maybe one of the few buying Walther magazines, of which I am now fully stocked.

Don't know about Walther.

I've only seen the Walther on sale in a handufl of places. I can say that Glock mags (say the extended g19 mag of 17 rounds) go for €25.

A Colt 1911 mag is €26 and an AR mag is €40. Depending on the store (extortionate or reasonable) I imagine a Walther mag would be about €30.

James -

Be sure and watch TFL classifieds, you might catch some for a lot less.

Doesn't MidwayUSA have a european website?

I'm pretty sure I read some info from it once, but I don't know where. And I don't know if they ship to your country.

Good luck!

spacecoast, the problems the OP and a US seller could encounter would be potential violations of US export control laws and/or Estonian Customs. He is probably safer finding a company that can import what he wants.

MLeake is right. I spoke to Ruger Accessories yesterday. They said they could not ship anything to the EU that would touch, ie be affixed to, a gun. So mags, sights, presumably even grips are a no-no.

Surprising given that Numrich had no issues shipping me Butler Creeks for my Redhawk.... but there you go.Thanks for the Midway links.

It seems that many such branches of midway do not stock mags of the MkIII, but I'll keep hunting...
