I have this French made UNIQUE DES 69 for a while and I enjoy shooting it.  Unfortunately I don't shoot this pistol for the bullseye match because I don't have extra magazines.  Last time I found the factory original was a few months ago on eBay but I had missed that auction.  

So far no luck finding the original anywhere, so I start thinking Triple K's replica magazine.  Does anyone know if Triple K's works as good as the factory original?  I hesitated to buy them as I did not see good reviews on their magazines in general.   

If you have the original magazines for sale or know resource for purchase , PLEASE let me know!

Thank you Aprillian.  I sent an email to Simpson.  I noticed that they have had a few DES 69 for sale but I did not bother to ask them for the magazine.

I still want to know if Triple K works.

Sorry that didn't pan out. Just for fun I did more web searching.  These people don't list that particular magazine, but have a crap load of DES parts on hand.  Perhaps if you call, they could point you in the right direction?  They certainly look like they would know about the triple k.  https://gun-parts.com/unique/

I tried this vendor before but no find.  Will shoot another call or email and see what he has to say.  I am wondering how other DES 69 shooters manage to secure magazines for their sports.  Maybe Triple K is the only solution...I hope not.  Having heard some issues with Triple K among the HS and Ruger shooters, I don't feel like spending 80 bucks/mag for a mistake that I can anticipate Sad

I know what you mean about triple K - they don't fit very well for the Browning Medalist/Challenger/Nomad series.

Hurry! 2 available at $80 each. I have no affiliation and stumbled on it by mistake.

I will say, I bought a couple Triple K mags for a 38 special 1911. They did require a little tuning, but they do work.
