Yeah, like the "good condition" Styer mags they sold at Knob Creek awhile back. Some were, most were not.

I hope so. At $20ea. Its hard to pass up. I avoided inch mags before I had an L1A1. Now I kick myself, its one of those: if i could go back to when I was 19 things. There was always cool new surplus popping up.

It figures after I spend $40 a mag to build them with NOS parts. Thanks for the heads up!

These are worth it just for the components and use as spares.

Good heads up - decent mags. They did show up pretty gungy. Cleaned up well, and look to be good to go.

Checked receipts, 14 months ago and about every six to eight weeks previous to then added 10 to 12 nice milsurp metric mags to every order from Centerfire Systems at $7.99 each. About 18 months ago they ran a $6.99 sale and bought a big pile to go with the ~200 inch tabs purchased when the "lost bag" was found. Set up a jig for my mill to make appropriate cut, spot welded tabs on about half dozen test units then coated with Deadwood. Worked perfectly and not counting labor had under $9 inch mags that are 100% reliable and finish holds up great. Plan was sell for $25 and double my money converting metrics to inch.

Now that $20 is good price for used metric mags dont think it's worth the effort to machine, spot-weld the tabs then Ceakote to mark up and sell as inch mags for $25. Amazingly price jumped $13 overnight when Centerfire Systems and a couple other vendors ran out of their cheap metric or just chose to all raise price at same time. Could double my money without any labor, sell tabs to those who might want to convert some metric to inch mags and sit on this stack and see where the price levels out.

Anyone know why price on milsurp metric magazines jumped so high in such a short time frame? Had been buying metrics at $6.99/7.99 so long assumed they would stay that price or would have stacked them deeper. Stockpiling high capacity magazines has never done me wrong but losing my crystal ball somewhere in the hoard has messed up my forecasting of which is going to be the quickest and biggest profit maker.

Got my 5 mags from Apex. The were greasy/dirty and the finish worn, but no dents and no rust. Some Simple Green and hot water and they look presentable. I have 10 like new C1 mags made from parts and these 5 and a few odd balls, which should be enough to keep my Brit SLR and Aussie L1A1 fed.
