Got my 4 magazines today.
One of them has no finish, just bare aluminum and the floorplate is bent. Looks like someone had problems getting the plate out at one time or another. This mag also has one feed lip that is slightly bent, don't know yet if it will effect feeding or not.
The other 3 magazines have maybe 20% of the finish left and it mostly rubs off in my hands. Feed lips look good though.
All 4 look like they are in solid structural shape, no dents anywhere on the bodies. 2 of the aluminum followers have a white residue on them like they have been wet at some point. It should clean off though.
Overall, these appear to be good solid magazines that will need to be refinished if you care to do so. Except for the first mag I mentioned that had the feed lip slightly bent and the bent floorplate, I am happy.
Alan, would you exchange the questionable magazine for a better one please?
I won't be near a PC this weekend so I won't be able to make any replies until Monday.
