Mags came today- Super slow shipping- I can't complain though as it was "free" and they actually shipped. I bought 10 and received 20% off so 160 total.

This is the best deal in mags I've found. Great condition- they do literally look new. Wish all my Galil mags looked like these....

Yeah they might just hold your monies despite not shipping then string you along on the refund. Ask me how I know

As will I. However why do I feel these will go the way of those NOS Wood ARM handguards either way

Well the prices have come to earthish. If they actually have the items. I just ordered a carry handle. We'll see if I ever get it like my NIB ARM wood HGs

If the parts are in VG or better shape there are some deals. Good can be a wide covering description. I just hope it means more than not totally beat to shit

Eta: 400pm EST i got a tracking # from Botach for the carry handle. See what it looks like when i receive it

I don't know about that "like new" mag stuff from Botach.
I ordered 130, a while back, maybe a year or so ago, and none of them were "like new".
Most were "good", to "very good", at best.
None, were nearly, "like new".
Of course they, conveniently "removed" my "review", from their product review section on those mags.
Go figure.

Too bad they don't have the retainer for the carry handle. My ARM kit is clipped.

Ordered the "IMI railed 1913 gas tube." It came, did a lot of grinding for it to fit.
