They weren't dented banged up they actually look good a few had stuck followers but they were dry as a bone loaded 30 rounds in a few no issues. I will test fire some this weekend. I can't post a pic but can send one to someone if they can post it.

Got mine earlier this week. Ordered 20 of them. 8 are fine right out of the box. 6 probably will be fine with very minor work or time put into them, and 6 are probably just best to part out rather than mess with trying to fix issues.

I love these and the CDNN bulgarian metal mags.

I do love those Croat mags though, they are nice and tight with no wobble and I love the BHO feature. And the price is right.

Them Bulgarians are the frog's ribbit if you know what I'm sayin'. Never had an issue with them and occasionally they go on sale for $10-12.

Ah you got my hopes up that these were the Yugo Surplus mags. Not too stoked on $10 each for these when they were 42 for $240 a few months ago from PSA.

top row: dented but easily fixed (including an m64 mag)

bottom left pile: heavily damaged, likely beyond repair. severe dents which prevent the follower from being removed for repairs.

bottom right: fully functional, many look unissued (but obviously refinished)



most of the dents are just small dings in the side of the magazine. none of them have damaged feed lips and only one or two have damaged spines. I think some of the followers are only hanging up because of the paint.

good deal

Out of 15:

Overall there were only two mags with what I would call more then a ding or dimple. One was on ones lower side and the other on it's back. A few had obvious surface damage/rust and had flaking paint in these areas.
Out of the box they looked great, I was expecting a lot worse. Though my excitement was put in check when I started to actually insert them in a few rifles.

4 locked and fed flawlessly out of the box
2 won't fit in any gun, they seem to be flared out up top in front of the feed lips
1 had enough damage, though not obvious from the outside to hang up it's follower
The rest looked and took 30 rounds just as the 4 good one's above however none will lock in to any gun.

Is it the paint on these that is hampering them to lock in? If I can figure that out, these 8 mags ought to work great.

It is the paint. Sand or strip to fit. I sanded mine on the front and rear lugs going a little bit at a time checking for fit periodically. Then there were some that needed the side plates sanded as well.

Others have just stripped the paint completely off to achieve fitting using paint stripper of choice. Hope this helps you.

I'm sure it will. Thanks.

Getting those 8 up and running would make this a good deal.

I got 25 mags. Many of The Good ones had no dents, only minor dings and cosmetic wear that did not prevent the follower from going all the way down



Some of The Bad pile were only minor dents, stuck followers or missing a floorplate. Maybe like rsrobel said some of the followers might be stuck due to thick paint



But out of the bad mags it looks like only 2-3 are so ugly I can't fix them
