    Folks - I'm looking for training magazines that are solid and weigh the same as a loaded mag, for use in reload practice. Are these available somewhere?

    TIA!

    nothing like that available for a steyr.

    but, "they" might make it for a s&w sigma. make sure you get the sigma .40 mags. the 9 mags are thinner.

    i've always just used snap caps.

    Context is everything- go over to the UK and ask for blue magazines, and they'd send you over to the rack in the back where all the glossies are plastic wrapped to keep the pervies from flipping through them in the store.

    Just tell them Randy sent you.

    Seriously though- yeah, why spend more on a rubber dummy than you would on a 10rd factory mag and a couple snap caps? If weight is the issue you could probably take out the mag spring and put a baggie full of sand or something in there instead. Paint the bottom bright orange so you don't get it mixed up with a real one some day and shoot a hole in your bathroom mirror, and you're good to go.

    Randy - Is that your name, or your description? :p

    This is probably even a cheaper way to go. It gives me an excuse to buy more mags anyway. Thanks!

    Just a joke... although perhaps a description as well. Having a toddler isn't the best thing for one's sex life, or one's shooting hobbies. Certain things just don't get to happen as often, and the tools of the trade end up being safe queens, like it or not. Between the baby and the wife's postpartum depression, the guns are in a locked room, in an electronic safe (for the handguns) or double combo & key take-down case (for the shotgun, which is also disassembled), with trigger locks (plus built in lock in the case of the Steyr M40), unloaded, ammo in a separate locked metal box. Only magnums that aren't locked up are trojan brand, and they aren't seeing much use either.
    :lol:

    Back on topic, seen some 10-rounders for Steyr Ms popping up on ebay lately, and there's always CDNN.
