Picked up a used pre-ban sanchez mag at a gun show for cheap but when i got home i noticed a small crack behind each of the feeding lips. Is this fixable?

Unfortunately no.

I was thinking of using a small ammount of some solvent like JB Weld after bending the lips back into place.

You can think of a lot of things, they just won't work. Best is to weld the cracks and grind them smooth, but they'll just crack out again shortly. Use it as a range mag until it becomes unreliable and then toss it.

Or buy a replacement teflon mag body for it from CMMG in the EE mag section for $12.95

I used some JB weld in the inner corners of the mag and it seems to be holding. This mag will just be used at the range and not loaded until ready to fire.

It would be worth it if I needed several, but at that price,I would just trash it and get another mag. Thanks for the suggestion though.
