    I just got a ATIFX45 Fatboy. I like the feel of this gun, and the weight is fine. I have not been to the range yet. It is made off shore like RI and Armscor.
    Any one have an idea where i can find a 12rg magazine foe this gun?

    The magazines for the FB are as rare as hen's teeth, and priced to match.

    ATI Fatboy Mag

    I ordered an finally got a MecGar P14 1 rd mag. it fits fine and rounds cycle fine. It fits the gun tighter so it does drop free like the factory one. I did put it in and out several time while holding release button in, and it is getting better. I see a couple wear spots starting that I ma polish some to see if that helps. This mad sticks out about3/8 to 1/2 inch, which is not a big deal to me. Heck, two more rounds.
    I also have been in contact with S.A.M.[ Philippines ] that make the gun I have ruffled some feathers in the system about the lack of magazines. I have gotten the standard we will look into it
    I did find out that they use a 14rd Para mag and cut it down to 12rd. That makes it a custom mag for this gun and is probably explains their justifying the overly priced cost. I am going to order one from Actmag and see how it fits.

    ATI Fatboy Mag

    I ordered an Act-Mag 14rd para magazine. It is the one S.A.M. uses to make the 12rg that come with the gun. Fits and drops just like the factory 12rd. Just sticks out a bit. Half the cost of the factory one. I got it from Greg Cote LLC

    I'll have to keep that in mind, and no one ever said "I wish I didn't have so many rounds in my magazine"

    You said ATV Fat Boy, right?

    Or was it FX Fat Boy?

    I just ordered 2 of those magazines, though I expect delivery will take a few weeks. I looked up the area code they gave for their phone number, and it's in Maryland, and they're getting corn holed by mother nature like a prison ***** out there.

    With shipping, those 2 14rd mags cost as much as 112rd mag for the fatboy. I hope they work

    Nah, they're fine out there. That whole "Blizzard of the century" crap was just that. Snowmageddon my ass. I ordered new barstools for the FD last week and the shipments coming out of PA down near Harrisburg were only delayed 24 hours.
