I recently purchased some mags from a fellow at a local gun show. His prices were fair and his mags were decent. Any one interested, his E-mail is AR15HQ@AOL.COM He has used, refinished, new in the wrap, 20's and 30's.

Do you mind to elaborate on some of the brands he had?
Link Posted: 4/25/2003 8:43:35 PM EDT
Well...this isn't an Edgar Allan Poe board - don't keep us in suspense! How much were they and what brands was he offering?

Oh the suspense is terrible. Come on pretty please tell us the info on the Mags. Don't be [8)] tell us.

and..?

What do you consider fair? I am able to get them for $10 plus tax, so it all depends on your version of fair. I would pay up to $15 if they were in great shape and with green followers. Oh, what brands?

He carries all brands, everything I saw was GI. He had some Colt 20's and 30's new in the wrap. He had several large boxes that were" stacked" full. They were not just thrown in a pile. I don't want to quote any prices for him. I purchased quite a few so I got a good price. He also has AR15 parts, Pre and Post ban.

Is he willing to sell to the public or individuals only that patronize his store? Would you mind contacting him and ask if it is ok to publish a e-mail address or phone number? I would like to check him out and see what he has, I know quite a few Team Members in TN. and I am sure they would appreciate the info as well.

[>:/] Why?? The USGI Mags are aluminum and better quality.
Link Posted: 4/28/2003 9:07:04 PM EDT
$14 apiece and I've heard nothing but good things... I've got plenty USGI for the moment, so I figure that I'll try what sounds to be the only decent steel AR mags aside from the new HK ones. I plan on using the steel ones on the range keeping the precious aluminum ones in the safe... The steel should hold up longer to abuse aside from corrosion over the long haul anyway, in theory... It never hurts to have some of each...

Good point, but I have been told if they get wet or Damp look out. If I had any and the finish started wearing I would clean them then primer them and might even add some paint with the color of choice.[:D]

That's my plan as well. For $14 NIW and from all the praise they have recieved here, I had to give them a try. The rifle also has more than a few steel parts that will rust if left unprotected from the elements... I was issued an A2 one time to clean. When I popped the hanguards off the barrel was completely rusted under there. Made me sick. Fortunately, it cleaned up with a wire brush and lots of CLP. Just have to take care of your equipment, thats all...

[shock] do you see all those mags he has stacked in his photos?!?!?!?!?!? I spo want that many mags....think he will cut me a deal? [:D]

I spoke to Angela at TN Guns & Ammo and they are more than willing to do direct business via phone - Gunbroker.com is not the only avenue. $20/mag with $2 shipping, unless you buy 5, then the shipping's free! You can even pick which manufacturer you want. I just picked up 5 OKay 30 rounders - can't wait! [:D]

The same would hold true for many other box magazine fed weapons out there; with some exceptions, the others use steel mags -- FAL, AK, M14, M1 Carbine, M3, Sten, Bren, Enfield bolt rifles, Mosin-Nagant bolt rifles, etc. Many of the FAL mags and all of the Hungarian AK mags that I have are phosphated and LIGHTLY oiled. I have 20 of the British ("England") steel AR mags and every one of them functions like a USGI in my Colt ST A2 and Bushy AK-braked carbine. The ONLY modification that I made was to trim about 0.100" from the dark blue follower peg with a pair of dikes. No issue with insertion of a full mag on a closed bolt after that. Noah
