I do not know about in Canada, but I do see that the majority of pistol mags on Gun Broker are for the M40. Mostly 10rd mags and some 12rd available, especially if you have the coin that they are asking for them now.

I don't mind paying a little more, but everywhere I look they won't ship to Canada... I found a pair on eBay brand new for less than $50 but again they won't ship to me.....Us Canadians need to shoot too lol

The gun centre in Kitchener ontario has 2 of them on the shelf. Get in touch with them and they will ship them to you or I can go get them and ship them to you if you like.

I called The Gun Center today and they didn't sound like they wanted to ship them to me.. They said they would call back right away with shipping costs and my payment info, but no call back :(

If you like, I can go buy them and ship them to you. I'm fairly close to them and you can send me an emt. I would think 15 bucks would cover shipping

Not sure why mag sellers are resistant to ship from usa to canada. I know on the knife forums, everyone is freaked by canadian custom and allot on the big knife forum won't ship to canada....but I know nada about canadian gun laws other than the vz58 is legal and the ak isn't. Is there any laws to stop shipping or might give customs agent reason to maybe flag and stop? Better question....isn't there any canadian online stores to buy from? Or am I missing the obvious? Thanks.

I don't know what the deal is with customs and why mags and parts can't be shipped its just stupid... We Canadians do have SOME gun laws I agree with but some are just silly... To own a handgun in Canada you have to be a member to a gun club/ range before you can even purchace one.... You also have to have a "restricted" endorsement on your P.A.L.(positions and acquisitions license) any gun with a barrel length less than 4.25 inches is considered a "prohibited" weapon and can't be owned unless you have a "prohibited" endosment (which you can't get unless you had it prior to 199?) we also can't get any "ccw" permits unless your job requires you to have a sidearm... On the plus side Canada has less "mass shootings"

Good. Info, thanks.

Btw, jgsales shows steyr .40 -12 round mags in stock. Didn't see any info on will or won't ship to canada, maybe worth an email if you're still hunting for 'em?

On the mass shootings here. True, and it shows canadians have guns and they don't engage in this often or at all. Must be something else going wrong in america besides guns, eh?;)

I won't argue with that. America has had a violent culture since day 1....and plenty of crazy. Somethings never change I guess?
