    I have a Daewoo DH40 and have found it to be the most accurate pistol I have ever seen. Only problem is finding magazines. Does anyone know of an equivalent mag that will work in it? All the ones I've tried are either too narrow or too wide. Something wierd there! I'm stuck with the original. Hate to depend on it in a firefight. :(
    I'll be going to Thailand in January and have to layover in Korea 12 hours. Maybe I can pick up some there.

    And I don't believe there are any other mags that will fit/function in it..........Just the reason I stayed away from the DH-40

    We had one in the past and it was a fine weapon.

    As I recall, you could mod cheap S&W mags to fit - dremel down the front lip of a 59 magazine, or I think 5906/6906 type magazines fit fine. You can get them cheaply enough to experiment.

    pistolcraft.com had some for like $45 each - factory original type.

    i had one in 9mm and it would take smith mags without any modification.
    i don't remember what model it was this has been 10 years ago.
    i would like to pick up another one as it was a great shooter.
    it felt really good in the hands to.

    The DP51 9mm takes S&W 5900 mags. I had one for about 2 weeks :D
