Heya,

I got these at the show today in Tucson for $12 each. I think they are SA-80 mags... Any ideas? If they are I think I got a good deal.

Thanks in advance!

i think that the price you paid is good since you got it at a gunshow. usually they are overpriced

Actually from my time in the service I have 50+ GI mags (aquired is the term...), I had never seen steel mags before. The guy in the center with all the camo, did have some beat up body mags for 3 bucks. I was tempted to get those as I play amatuer refinish moly resin guy some more.

Make sure to take a plastic/wooden ruler and work the follower of each of your new "British" mags up and down a couple dozen times to break them in; it makes a world of difference the first time you take them out to the range.

I have ten of them myself and I love 'em, but having brand-new mags as opposed to slightly-used G.I.s requires a bit of a break-in period.

The aluminuim RG (Radway Green) SA80 mags seem to be superior to the steel ones. And as a bonus the RG mags strip down in seconds.
