View Full Version : 5906 Mag Use on Other Guns?

03-11-2009, 5:41 AM
Any non-S&W guns use 5906 magazine?

I found couple of 5906 magazines buried at the back of the safe. Sold the S&W but want to keep the magazines for use on the Camp9 so I'm looking for another handgun other than Smith. I guess I can modify the catch and use on the Ruger but I rather not modify the mag if possible.

I recall awhile ago there was a gun for sale and the seller was mentioning also being able to use 5906 magazine, but can't find the post.

Any ideas??

Keltec handgun?

The Kel Tec Sub 2000 will work with S&W magazines also. Californicated of course.

Marlin camp 9.

Want to sell those mags? :) If they are hi-caps I'll buy rebuild kits off of you.

EDIT: D'OH! I didn't realize you already had a camp 9. :(

Need to keep my Camp 9, it's too much fun to let go. Just need to get a handgun to go with the carbine and I'm looking for something other than Smith 59 or 69. The Kel Tec P-11 looks promising, anyone have one??

DaeWoo DP-51 can use the S&W 59 series magazines.
They stick out a little, but they do work.

IIRC, the XD 9mm can use a modified 59-series magazine. I've got a couple mags from pop's old duty weapon. I was gonna get a HS2000 when they were $300 and do the mod. But then Springfield bought the distribution rights, changed the rollmarks on the slide and jacked up the price $150. Pissed me off, so I never bought one.

the s&w 910 and 915

Yeah and the PC9.

I've been wanting to get a Camp 9, but how does those Kel Tec Sub 9 shoot? Are they decent?

Reason is I have at least 8 mags for the 5906 and they are all pre-ban.

Sorry for the thread jack.

Kel Tec P11 uses S&W 59 mags.

My Star Firestar Plus (imported by Interarms) uses S&W 69xx and 59xx with an extra notch for the mag release lever.

I've been meaning to get a Camp Carbine to go with it.

If you take the magazine safety out of the Star 30m 5906 mags will work
