What happened to Howa mini action mags?

Does anyone know why there are no mini action magazines for sale in 7.62x39 anywhere? I have 2 rifles, one walnut and one synthetic. I lost the one magazine that came with the wood rifle out in the forest and the other had the plastic fail. My local gun shop tried all his suppliers and I have been looking on GB and all the online retail sellers and nothing. It has been months of looking and not real happy having 2 guns that can not be used. I do not want to go the aftermarket route for bottom metal. The factory mags showed sub $30. when they were shown in stock and kept putting off buying extras. Anyone else have this issue? Can not get reply from factory.

    I don't have a Howa mini action - but I have two semi-autos - one in 7.62X39 and one in 350 Legend - they both use the same magazine - and that magazine will work for 300 Blackout. Here is a Howa mini magazine. It might work - can't say for certain. You can use the "Ask The Seller" to see if they might know or can direct you to a source.

    Thanks for the reply. The 7.62x39 and 6.5 Grendel use the same Howa mini action mag. I have a 223 mini action Howa and magazine will not take the fatter 7.62 round. I see someone on fleabay is 3D printing them. Not a good sign.

    2. You will probably need the exact manufacturer's product number - if they don't have it in stock - then we will have something here to work with in an effort to assist you.
