Default BLEM polish mags at AIM $6.95

I know these were around for a short time not long ago can't remember if they were worth a shit or not? For anyone looking.....

Edit here is a link from July '16 might not be worth it with paint bubbling and rusted feed lips

What are these in the MP these days? $12-$15 each tops? At least in the MP you get real life pictures (most times) and generally rock bottom shipping prices.
I realize a lot of items can be had through online vendors at what seem to be good deals or quantity pricing but...................................

I bought a handful of these way back when. It took hours to strip that finish off. Not really worth it. I suppose a media blaster would fix that right up.

Everytime I've seen them here, they're noticably more than that, and still usually sold by the time I come across them (and I've been checking real frequently the past month or so).
But, with these AIM mags, I've read some discouraging (or at least widely varying) reports on their condition, plus, AIM's shipping tends to run pretty steep, last I checked.
I know the shipping is mitigated with a large order of like a dozen or two, but I ain't gots that kinda skrilla !!!

Are they just painted over heavy bubble and flakes of rust?

I own a large sand blaster media cabinet.

Little elbow grease and spray paint for the mags you would be G2G.

Yeh so AIM is a way better deal. These mags are tits- they may require removal of some of the finish in the locking lug area.

Shipping ends up around 1$ per if you order say 15.

I used EZ strip on my last batch- let sit 5 or so minutes then scraped off. Did 15 in about 30 mins tops. EZ PZ

143 left as of this post. I ordered 15 last time and only 4 needed to have the paint removed around the front and rear lug. None had bubbled paint.


The 4 that needed tweaking were all Gen 1 mag's with serial numbers. I received iirc 7 of those. The others were Gen 2 no S/N's.

All had minor dings that were painted over. The insides of the mag, under the follower and the interior of the base plate appeared to be parked.

I thought for the money it was a good deal. I'm tempted to order more and sell off my yugos that I got from them.

I got 5 of these a while ago, they work ok, I had to file off the pain on the back lug and the spring gstring need to be broken in so you don't get double feeds, but other than that they work great and I can leave them loaded all the time.

I got 15. Came in this morning.

None were like in the pics with bubbled paint.

10 were Gen2

5 were Gen1. 4 with X'd out S/N's one had none

5 need to be troubleshooted for fitment.

3 are Gen1 2 are Gen2. Paint too thick will be the issue I'm sure.

Most have a few small dents/dings

All in all another good 15.

Got mine, same here NO bubbled paint, very minor dings. I really cant tell them from the regular refurbished poles I bought before from AIM.

All in all these 30 mags were a freaking steal at $6.95 a piece, even better than the croat blems.

Thanks AIM!
