I want to see how they look the good and bad magazines before I order some.

I am more interested the bad ones just to see how bad they really are?I would also like to "average" ones...

How do you test if you got a bad AK magazine?

Thank you!

I would also. Looks like a great deal.

seriously, it's packed full with grease. Took me a while to clean off all the gunk. On the positive side, out of 12 I have received:

4 Yugo BHOs
1 Russian
3 Chinese
4 Euro

It's worth it, if you have the time to clean off the grease

they look like used mags. Some are worn and some are like new. You might get something rare in your order, or you may get all generic Euro mags. Just luck of the draw. If you get a non-working mag, SG will replace it.

I've ordered 24. Two were dented, but one is in the side and easily fixable, one in the spine. SG is replacing the one with the spine dent.

One was VERY rusty, and another had a rust spot on the spine.

I'd say 7-8 of the remaining mags are in near perfect condition, 3-4 are below average, and the others are average to above average condition.

I really want to order another dozen but I have no use for that many mags. It's actually fun & interesting to get them, clean them off, and see what you've got.

Testing to see if they are bad is easy. When you're cleaning them, if you can't get the follower to move freely in the mag, you're magazine is dented.

I got in a pack yesterday, cleaned some of there, got to clean the dirty ones today.

One had a 1/8th inch or thicker cosmo coat on it.

If it doesnt come apart and go back together I call it bad.

I got some the other week, but no pictures.

The ones I got were in decent/good shape, one of them was really dirty and full of cosmoline. Most were NOT full of cosmo. They look about like any set of mags you'd see at the gun show - not rusted or pitted or anything.

I just got six from SG. Any recommendations on how to clean the Cosmoline off of them?

A heat gun will speed things up. You can also use the dishwasher. Just don't blame me when your plates slide out of the cabinet by themselves.
