P30 Standard capacity mags (yes, i've been through the sticky with regard to parts)
I'm looking for a site/supplier who can sell me some standard capacity, that's 15 round, HK P30 mags. Whoever decided that HIGH capacity is more than 10 rounds should be shot by a single shot high power handgun round in the pinky toe. High capacity for me is something higher than what the manufacturer designed it for. Like 20 round mags for it etc. etc.
Anyway sorry for the rant. I can get mags for the P30 here locally in South Africa but at $110 per mag at today's exchange rate. Now for me that's a bit excessive, don't you think. More so because I'm a mag nut. Just for Pin Busting alone I need about 8. IDPA requires 3 at least and I mean mags wear out. I will need more to replace these. Now I'm stuck with 2 I got with the gun.
Is there anybody that ships internationally? I am well aware of the $100 shipping limit on gun parts. So I'll buy them 2 mags at a time if needs be but $37 vs $110 dollars? I'm willing to make more orders and thus pay more shipping and it will still not touch sides with the prices I'm going to pay for it locally.
Please guys I'm desperate. HELP!!
What is the $100 dollar shipping limit?
I have 5 new 9mm p30 15rnd mags in the plastic to sell gladly for $37.00 each. Shipping sounds steep to get you them.
Well it's not a $100 shipping limit. It's actually an order limit.
According to US Federal law all gun parts order must be under a $100 for the order (excluding shipping). If it exceeds the $100 order limit then there needs to be export permits etc. etc. Of course this just increases the cost and time the shipment will take. Most online sites just forego the extra paperwork and effort and just don't ship it if it exceeds $100.
Now I've found various sites I can buy normal capacity (15 - 17 round mags) with no problem but all of them are for other guns and not the P30. So I'm pretty much stuffed.
Look I'm fine with the order limit and do not want to break any laws. It does mean I'll have to make more orders and subsequently pay more shipping because it's not a combined shipment but it's the lesser of the two evils. I mean $110 vs $37 per mag. The extra shipping + customs will still not put the price close to what I'm paying locally.
PM on it's way.
