Default Grade "C" surplus European AK47 mags $6.45 a pop

Apex is having a 2 day sale on E Euro surplus mags for the AK47
Grade "C" as is condition, not guaranteed to function no returns $6.45 a pop

I'm in for 10 just to check em out , if nothing else it's more painting fodder for me.

If APEX has them at grade "C", expect grade "F". Waste of $ with them.

Not worth it at that price. Guaranteed these are Century's $2 u fix em mags from last year. I bought a bunch (I'm not a dealer so paid $3 each plus shipping) and fixed 17 of the 18 but for $7 shipped it would never be worth it when excellent condition ones can be had for $10

yup, the last batch they had was unusable. People were all over the forums getting a 30% unsalvageable rate for them. Kinda drives the price up per usable mag. I'd rather wait for deals like the AIM yugo or the AoA $9.95 romy grade 2's for sale. not worth the hassle from Rapex

Exactly. The $9.95 surplus Yugo mags IMO are/were the best deal right now.

yeahhhhhh, selling stuff as is for that price is hilarous. $2-$3 a mag? sure, but $6.50 per mag and no guarantee you won't get something that isn't completely pitted or dented up is hilarious

It would be worth the gamble if the price was reasonable. I don't feel over $6 to deal with that is reasonable. Kinda sucks more people do not realize that. Seems somebody always ends up throwing down cash it.

not only that but after shipping costs, its definitely not worth it since the price per mag goes up...

Lol $6.45 for mags that aren't guaranteed to function and non returnable???

Why spend that when good mags are so readily available?

For the price of three of the Apex mags I can get a new Magpul gen 3 mag, new, no rust, no cleaning, and just great mags to use.

I really like the folks at Apex, but I would go for the Magpul for the price of Apex's mags.

First you have to soak them in gas, or wd40, or whatever... $
Then you have to clean them with steel wool... $$
Then clean them with brake cleaner... $$$
Then you have to give them a coat of paint... $$$$
Then you have to add the time you could have been at work making money to pay for this shit... $$$$$
Then you have to consider that 1 out of 3 of these mags do not work properly or have feeding issues... in my experience.

I am not hating on people who buy these things. I am sure they are more knowledgeable than me and can tinker with mags. I just can't. I have learned the wrong way that you are better of just buying a little better quality... you save money in the long term...

These mags should be sold for $1 or $2 (MAX) a piece.

So they are selling those rusty Romanian mags that were $2-3 each, but for more. Nice. Apex sucks. I won't spend anymore money there. Every new debit card I use there gets comprised exclusively at apex only. Even virtual card numbers.

It was funny the cleaning rod someone here got from apex, had the threaded end missing and was a piece of scrap metal, If I remember Apex came on and tried to defend selling it.


Like others said if Apex rated them C, they are really F and unusable, Apex overgrades, you can have your credit card info stolen to sweeten the deal as well.

Oh yeah! Fuck Apex too BTW. They pissed me off a long time ago. No refund for my $100+ online purchase that showed in stock, but turned into store credit. Fuck that. Yep, each time this shit comes up I'll speak my mind about it.

Sounds like a leftist that gets so wound up over a single word. I`m sure you`re just huffing, puffing and typing faster and faster each second! And for your effort you`ll earn...

Nothing. I`ll not explain myself when your lazy ass is already at a computer and perfectly capable of a basic google search.

News to me. I ordered a couple mags for my SIG SP2022 and they were top notch, stupid fast and nicely priced. Granted that was in December.

I believe that 48 hour sale on the grade C magazines started on the 11th of MAY.
This thread started a month ago.
Looks like the mags sold out in about a day.

Anyway, wouldn't some cheap dollar store shitty cola, cheap aluminum pans, elbow grease, abrasive pads and engine paint be enough to fix them up?

What I have seen a lot in these old rusty mags is bulging rust right where the feed lips attach to the magazine. I think it can be dremeled out but they're pretty useless unless that is fixed because the follower can't go all the way up

If you've already got the tool...why not?
Fix them up on a day when you literally have nothing else to do.

Just gotta buy a lot of these grade mags when they pop up for sale.

I missed the mark.
