pardon my ignorance, but what is so good about an orange mag? it says it only fires blanks the shape it is in now. why bother?
Link Posted: 9/26/2001 3:41:04 PM EDT
the "cool" factor, and the fact that they are rare. I myself have one too, and it is hella sweet. They can be filed to accecpt live rounds....

The seller suggests that "with a couple of minutes and a file, you can make it accept live rounds." Wouldn't that be ILLEGAL? If so, don't you think he'd know that and not post it on his auction?[:E]

nope, it's not illegal... all you do is take the front lip connecting the two feed lips off. it's not modifying the mag so it will fit in another gun, and not that one. blanks arent illegal, nor are live arounds.

Thats what I was just wondering, if the atf considers a magazine to be a device which holds and feeds ammunition cartridges, they could probably convince a judge that an orange thermold in original condition is not a magazine since it does not hold or feed real ammunition. and you could be charged with somehting like post '94 manufacture of a high cap? anyone know? BTW what's the point of orange glock mags? they look like they are for live ammo.

Orange Glock mags are training mags.. just like the others, but orange. Be pretty sweet to have some actually.. could keep a speical kinda ammo in them, and automatically know what was in it.

They're training mags as well, and they are for live ammo. They're also pretty plentiful. I see dozens of them at gun shows. God Bless Texas

Look real close at the sellers e-mail. Is something obvious from it?

I think AFARR is saying that this guy is 'obvious'ly a professional Mag seller, in fact if you check his other auctions, he probably has some really cheap Beta-C mags for sale...

65 bones???!!!! damn!!! I guess I just don't get it..... or maybe I do....I've got a Thermold and a can of orange spraypaint I'll be willing to part with.....let's start the bidding at, say $50 you can get 3 Thermolds for that price, and they don't need filing, go figure.

Yes, he is definitely a captain of the mag selling industry.

A few years ago I was walking the aisles of a big gun show when I spotted a seller with a stack of orange Thermolds. All the other magazines at this show were flying off the table, but no one would touch these. I'd never seen any before and didn't really know what they were, so I asked. I think everyone at the show must've tought they were toys or for training, but after looking at the feed lips for 3 seconds I knew what they were. I bought the whole box for $2 ea. Being the lazy sort that I am, I used a Dremel and gave them a few strokes with a file as a clean up, using a black Thermold as a guide. They all work flawlessly. I get a few weird looks at the range, and sometimes people will actually come over and ask. When I tell them they usually laugh, and then I let them empty the odd orange mag. Then they smile.
