    If you want a copy of Jon Speed's book on the Mauser Smallbore Rifles, join the German Gun Collectors Association and purchase a copy through them.

    Incredibly knowledgeable folks, friendly, helpful, a great resource.

    Original magazines are hard to find. But you can get a reproduction magazine from

    if your going by the drawing in the add, it is not correct, its the same mag in the Mauser ms 420 in the above thread , you don't jam it in, I goes in easily, & it looks like any other MS 420, if u bothered to look @ that thread you would have noticed, b series has a somewhat curved mag, as stated the drawing is incorrect, it will fit a model 420, heres a few pics of it in ms 420

    This is a picture of the correct original magazine for an MS420 but not a MS420B. Note the angled base. Both the MS420 and MS420B magazines are 5-round while the TripleK is 4-round. The 5-round MAS45 magazine will also fit but will also look wrong.

    I forgot to mention, these people sell both the MS420B and the MS420 angled base. I have ordered several magazines from them and they have been promptly delivered to the US.

    The triplek mag does fit the ms420, for some reason the manufacturer elected to have a less slanted floor plate.
    Here should be a couple of photos comparing the mag with a b mag. The straight sides of the mag compared with the curved of the b . The mag also lacks the hold protrusion of the b mag.

    Maybe a better photo of the twoshowing the lack of magazine holding detention of the “b” The magazine certainly will look different from the correct one, it would give the the ms420 the appearance of an ms420n(improved system).
