A short story.

Today I helped my friend clean his and his grandpas many guns. So I was cleaning the Browning BDA 380 which is a really nice gun. I wanna shoot it! So anyways I ask for the magazine since it has a magazine disconnect thingy majig. I look at it thinking it was a 10 rounder but it wasn't. It was a 13 round magazine. Keep in mind the gun is older.

So my friend asked me to find him a 10 round magazine since we don't wanna shoot it with a 13 round mag. That's a no no. I was doing some googling and read that the Berretta 84 mags work fine in the BDA 380. Is this true? Can I buy a 10 round Beretta 84 mag in .380?

CDNN sells them. I'm not sure if they're in stock though.

both guns are/were made by beretta, the safeties are in different places, but i can't see why the mags wouldn't interchange

take the old geezer with you so that he can let you use the hi cap magazines on the range... plus Im sure he'll like it too.

I just got a beretta model 84 earlier this year, it was my mom's nightstand gun. I got one mag brand new in packaging from guns America and 2 used from GB all three shipped were about $70 so sort of a steal imo.
