They just showed up in a email notice.

$19.95-24.95 depending on how many are purchased.

Reasonably priced & advertised to be in excellent condition with little finish wear.

They are quality mags and work well with underfolders or shooting from the bench and prone.
I was set to buy a few but after shipping they were close to $30 a piece so I passed

Yea I don't do much business with AIM due to their shipping costs but after doing the math & seeing that other vendors want $35/ea for Hungarians I decided to order some since I'd still be ahead of those others and that they're sort of a unique mag.

these used to be $5 a pop, and even when they got decently popular $30 for 3 with a mag pouch... But for some reason they became the next (10) and everyone wanted them so retailers trippled the price. they have TONS in stock and never seem to go away, but they keep wanting to charge rare prices for them.

On the shipping estimator the only price for shipping that came up and was available was $18.09 for my 3 mag order. I initially looked at more mags but the shipping cost was then $19.49, and I assumed the shipping cost would go up further with more mags ordered. No where during checkout did a see a USPS rate of $14.

In looking at the Terms & Conditions section it does say that accessory orders being shipped to a PO Box will ship US Mail. for a medium flat rate. However, my order was not going to PO Box and again I saw no other USPS $14 option as per the shipping estimator.

In the FAQs section it states..."(Currently our website only calculates UPS shipping charges; for USPS, please call)". Ordering outside of business hours precludes calling for USPS shipping.

If a medium flat rate USPS option is available perhaps that should be displayed based on order type, like up to 10 mags and/or equivalents.

If the USPS shipping option, stated above, is available perhaps AIM should update the shipping estimator to allow for using that outside of business hours.

I received the AIM newsletter email after their business hours for the week. While I'm glad AIM had these available at a decent price I would have placed a larger order if the stated USPS shipping option was available after those hours.

Understand. Not trying to be critical just pointing out circumstances. It would be great if you folks could get the USPS option on the website & figured there was a software issue that needed to be addressed. The shipping estimators escalating UPS shipping prices kept me from ordering more.

Thx

Just received my order. These were unused with no marks from inserting in a rifle. Nice heavy Hungarian construction. Thanks, Bryan!

One of your crew took care of me. Thanks for the help.

Got my Hungarian 20s today. Very nice.

All inserted fine in my WASR-17 but only one did in my WASR-15. Will need to file those to fit but won't take much.
Link Posted: 2/17/2018 12:51:15 AM EDT
Mine came today, they look new and unused. Now I just need to find a couple of pouches for them.
Link Posted: 2/22/2018 8:20:27 PM EDT
Pimp, which european country did you contract to make these, i swear they are brand new besides the handling marks
Link Posted: 2/22/2018 11:56:26 PM EDT
Link Posted: 2/23/2018 12:20:37 AM EDT
another pimp, they look great! If mine weren't practically indestructible I'd buy some more!

Tanker mags

You are indicating your age! I remember those days, too. I get sticker shock now as well. I loaded up when they were $24.99 for a 3-pack w/ pouch, oil can, and cleaning kit. Free shipping an no tax. The good ole' days. Those days are long gone, but I have plenty to feed my AMD. Sad when your firearm accessories are appreciating faster than my 401K........kidding, but almost true.

Just got a few in. Damn things look brand new!

Any eta on when those will go up? I already have some NOS 20's, but i'd sure take a few B grade ones for range mags, they are so much better if you need to sight a rifle in off the bench, and easier on the arms when shooting offhand.

I'm guessing they are OOS now, probably PM pimp and see what he can do, i wanna say they go up shortly after and get blown out like the 40s a few years back
