Default Molot 40 round surplus magazines.

Received my order of 2 Molot 40 round mags couple of days ago. Both are good to go function wise. The cosmoline over paint was easy to remove. One had some rust and pitting , not severe, the other was rust free. I removed the paint from the pitted one, and polished the mag body with rouge on a cotton buff wheel. Oil coated now, should stop / mitigate further corrosion, If I purchase a slabside, all 4 Soviet types will be in possession. Waffle, Bakelite, Stamped Steel are now in possession. The Waffle aluminum is my favorite so far, noticeable weight difference compared to stamped steel. I function checked em all at the English Pit range in Vancouver Friday, all good to go. Also checked out the 2 Romanian purchased from a member here, good to go. The Grey leather pouch is in excellent shape, the mags look as if t6hey were never loaded until Friday. The Bakelite functioned flawlessly, also a member deal. Came with mold # 88, pretty cool of him to pick that one to ship.

Glad to hear you're happy with the purchase. We had quite a few of those Russian Molot mags that had rust/pitting out of the norm, so we pulled them temporarily to get them sorted. They're now sorted and listed appropriately.

Do the mags still come as pictured on your website (rust, etc.)?

The pictures shown on the website are representative of the quality of magazines we have available. We have some that are in great condition but we still have quite a few with some minor to moderate rusting/pitting. Unfortunately do the nature of the magazines as well as the amount we have, we do not offer handpicking at this time.

As we have shown on Facebook with other customer supplied photos, the rusted magazines still clean up quite nicely.

If we start coming across more and more magazines that are not acceptable quality, we will pull the listing and adjust it accordingly.
