Magazines for the Radom p-35

Has anyone found aftermarket magazines that work in these guns. I purchased 2 mags from a aftermarket supplier and neither mag functioned like they are supposed to.

I had the same problem with an aftermarket magazine I bought at a gun show for my p 35. I don't know the mfgr. The magazine catch inside the magazine well was too short to catch the magazine and the mag was looser than the original and would fall out. I just opened up the 'thickness' of the magazine with a screwdriver a little so it fit a little tighter and the magazine catch inside now catches the hole in the magazine. Works fine. Oh, and the follower is different from the original but it still works.

Good luck. I've had the exact same problem.

I only have the one magazine, and have been trying to find more Polish military manufactured ones for quite a few years.

Yep sent them back for a refund. Thought if the mags worked out it would be a fun IDPA shooter. If I ever find mags for it, Mike you will be the second one to know.

A local dealer said that Triple K's guarantee was better than their magazines. In his words, "Just keep sending them back until you get one that works."

The only other source I know of is Ammoclip.com.
I don't know their quality but they talk a lot about "fitting" magazines and only have a 30 day guarantee.

But what are your choices if you want to shoot oddball autos?

Yep Jim thats where I purchased mine from was Ammoclip. At what point does the shipping negate the purchase of the magazines? Appreciate the info and insight.
