Got these from EE from Industry Partner TGSCOM inc, they're great! Rust free, even took one apart to see if the springs were rusty, they were not. Fast shipping. Still waiting for my 6450 to arrive but I needed extra mags for them anyhow so I got some!

Check 'em out!

Nice mags.

every mag had those serrations or scratches on the rear edge of the mag, you can see them in the pic, they sort of look like a ruler, but all the scratches were identical, I figured it was just the tooling they used. This weekend I'll dissassemble them, swab out the inside with CLP and then the outside as well.

I seen your reloading set up for .223 , you going to load 9mm now?By the looks of it you will have plenty of empty brass.

Nice!

If you mind a small thread hijack, what kind of reloading equipment do you prefer?

I reload 9mm, 38/357, 40s&w, 45acp, and 223-but all from a single press. Although my Dillon 550B makes caliber changes convenient I'd still like to have a second progressive press to increase my flexibility. It's been over twelve years since I've been in the market for a press-so I have no idea what's good anymore.

Nice mags BTW!

I have a 550B and a RockChucker with the now no longer offered Case Kicker. Working on a 650, deciding whether to add the 650 or sell the 550B to replace the 550B.

www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=1&f=9&t=373898

I wipe the outside of the mags down with Breakfree CLP and from the 10 mags, I saw some rust residue on the rag I used to wipe them down, that's to be expected. There wasn't any obvious pits or anything on the mags, heck they're 7 years old.

I then removed the baseplate which was a pain cause some were on real tight but finally managed it and swabbed down the inside with CLP as well, I also wiped the floor plates and the mag springs a bit.

When the 6450j's come in I'll give a mag range report.

Thanks for the info!

finally got a deal settled on a 6450 so i scooped up what the guy had left

like you i will have mags before the rifle arrives but it should come shortly after.

Excuse the silly question, but why are these mags so expensive?
Link Posted: 8/10/2005 7:28:38 AM EDT
Those Mags should be BANNED FROM CIVILIAN USE!

Proprietary design? Patent? They're built like tanks though, heavy duty.

Ever price a factory HK or Sig mag, they're $40, not that much less than $50, and a lot smaller!

got my ten today



same hash marks as yours



all have similar finish and look great!
Link Posted: 8/15/2005 12:01:29 PM EDT
they'll look better wiped down with CLP. I wiped down the inside too with a cleaning rod and patch, some of the floor plates were a bitch to get off though.

Can you please provide a link to that? I searched by user name and by "Colt 9mm" and can not locate their post, and their website in the Industry section doesn't even list those magazines.

Also, are the dates on the LEO mags different (exact date of mfg), or just a blanket date of when the ban took affect? I don't remember the date the Klinton axe fell, since it didn't really apply to me.

Thanks and leave me in your will......
