Dennis Todd's outrageous prices strikes again. I'm pretty sure I know the man Todd got the magazine from. They are hard to find (it took me years) but I've walked by that magazine many a time refusing to pay his prices. If money is no object, you did fine but that's a $500 magazine at most in the collector world.

The sad truth is if he had two I would’ve brought both. It was over my limit but I just didn’t want to wait for the right one with the right price to come to the market. Also with the high capacity magazine uncertainties just had to pull the trigger

We can work on that. These mags could identify as such.

You can get reproduction MP43 / 44 mags for $90 - $120. Originals for around $500 +/-. Does the MP45 stamp makes this worth that much more? But, if you've got the machine gun without at least one original mag, it's a small price to pay vs. the value of the complete package.

I've bought a few original MP40 mags from Dennis last year. He was basically at market prices with everyone else.

Yes that seems to be going rate. Many mp44 owners swear mp44 and mp43 mags are $300 all day and other interesting mags are in the $500 range but I havenít seen that recently and that was the going rate last year.
MP45 mags were mistakenly produced because Mp45 was never developed and produced. It was made briefly by one factory early 1945 and quickly switched back to mp44 from what Iíve gathered. Thus the premium price.

Well, I have an MP45 marked one and if you're dead set on having another, I'll sell you mine for that same $800.
