The mags from SKSMan, are they the real Circle 10 military mags, or the commercial versions?


Link Posted: 12/14/2011 5:37:07 AM EST
They're the real deal, bought six, need two more.
Link Posted: 12/15/2011 4:39:14 PM EST
I just bought sixteen of them.

The magnet doesn't lie. They are awesome. A few of them were chipped, but who cares. It's for an AK.

I love Paul!

Warning, he's slow on shipping, but you can call him and bug him to send them out.

This. I ordered 10 of these online, but he lost of the order and did not ship until I called him 3 weeks later. That being said, best deal on these mags ANYWHERE. Get them while you can.

Same thing happened to me. He did ship them right out once I called him though.

He has quite a few, probably more than 2,000 left I assume. He has had them for $25 each for awhile now.

He (Paul) told me that the current price on these mags is good until he has to order more. He said that the newer ones will be more expensive.

How do you tell if your circle10 mags are milspec or commercial?
Link Posted: 12/17/2011 7:10:37 AM EST
I've been looking for a good source of Bulgy Circle 10's.

In for 6 now.

Thanks OP!

As long as they have the "circle 10" they should all be "milspec." The ones K-Var, MidwayUSA, and SKSman sell (when they're in stock).

Promag makes a lookalike magazine. Don't buy those.

alright you guys talked me into getting six for myself merry christmas to me

Great deal on great mags. Like other posters stated, he is slow to ship.

Place the order by phone and you should be good to go.
Link Posted: 12/21/2011 1:21:29 PM EST
I just spoke with him, I'd called him to confirm that he had them in stock and that they were Circle "10" magazines.

He said he has them in black & OD, but that the price is now $32./
Link Posted: 12/21/2011 4:32:41 PM EST
I ordered 8 30rders online 3 days ago. The price still says $25 online, that would be pretty shady to not change the price online and jack the price up after we ordered. I will call him tomorrow.
Link Posted: 12/22/2011 7:06:54 AM EST
He didnt tell me anything about $32 price raise, but said if you ordered before Tuesday he just shipped them all out. He is not out of them. Thanks for posting this so I could jump in on the deal!
Link Posted: 12/23/2011 2:39:29 PM EST
Mine arrived today.

Sure look good to me!



Once again, thanks OP for bringing these to our attention.
Link Posted: 12/24/2011 11:48:06 AM EST

Link Posted: 12/25/2011 2:43:38 AM EST
Yeah, wonderful...he sold out before I could even order any!!

Just kidding, ordered 30.

Merry Christmas y'all!

That's what I thought, too.

But I ordered 16 of them a month ago.

Some of them had some tiny blems on them, but they work well.

I ordered 10 via the internet on 1/3 and got an email confirmation and promise to ship ASAP. Called today to check on the order and got a song and dance about being behind on calling and that the price was now $35ea IF I wanted them. Told numbskull that 1) he should have changed his website that STILL lists the price at $25ea. and that 2) small business or no, it is unacceptable to be going into the third week without contacting a customer on an order issue. Order Cancelled...I'd rather spend the $$$$ elsewhere.
Link Posted: 1/17/2012 1:01:46 PM EST
Great. Placed my order on 1/10 and haven't heard a word since.


If I call and he's upped the price on me, I'm cancelling.

I spoke with him the other day. The price is 35 now, and he is out of the plum 30s.
Link Posted: 1/17/2012 4:53:14 PM EST
Thats bullshit.
Link Posted: 1/17/2012 4:59:50 PM EST
yea i thought so too, i just checked the EE like every other hour until i found some at a price fair and reasonable. for me it was 30 bucks shipped for a mag which is still nuts
Link Posted: 1/19/2012 6:37:13 PM EST
Same story here, I called because I hadn't received the magazines I ordered online. he said because he had to order more, the new price is now $35. I grudgingly ordered 6. They arrived today and seem really nice, but I don't plan on buying any more.
Link Posted: 1/20/2012 1:28:32 PM EST
I talked to him 3 weeks ago. An e-mail I'd sent to him went ignored, and I had to call 3 or 4 times to get him on the phone. He told me that he'd had to "up" the price and when I asked how much they were it took him a while for him to communicate that they were $32./ He asked how many I wanted & I told him I'd call back. I just felt...like I was being worked.

I just watched the exchange here & found 5 new 30 rounders for $140., which comes out to $28./ shipped.

I think Copes has them for $30., which would seem to be a good price.
Link Posted: 1/21/2012 4:11:34 PM EST
I brought a rifle from him back in 2007. The area above his garage had at least one footlocker full of the Bulgarian mags.

He has had several strokes and was already in very rough shape back then- barely mobile.

It's no excuse if he's running a business, I know, but I'm guessing he's trying to keep things going but has declined in health more since I saw him 4 years ago.
Link Posted: 1/22/2012 4:29:21 AM EST
Just as an FYI, I called a distributor that a fun shop I work in goes through and the price for those mags is still the same they've been for a year.
Link Posted: 1/25/2012 6:52:09 AM EST
Interesting

I ordered some mags over a week ago. Haven't heard a peep.

The price probably went up to $40. He wont tell you, he just wont ship your order.


Surprise.

His price on these magazines was really good. It was worth calling every few days to make sure he didn't forget etc. For 35$ a pop, no way.

Negative. Commercial mag. IIRC no metal in the locking lugs. I hate to say it but, if you must have black plastic at around $15ea: go with Tapco mags since you could bitch at someone local when it fails

Thanks for the info. I thought it might be metal reinforced. I have plenty of various metal mags, this (the Circle 10) was my first foray into polymer. I spoke to SKSMan & the price is indeed $35. I just ordered one. Yes, I wanted to check 'em out that bad... I don't even want to get the bakelite urge, do I?

Just FYI...Copes has them for $29.99. And no, you don't want to get bitten by the bakelite bug. They're awesome but pricey!

Well, before I saw this thread I ordered 3 Circle 10s from him. As others have stated, they never shipped so I called today and he stated the cost now went up to $35 so I just canceled my order. He was very polite on the phone but I would have rather gotten an email a month ago...?

Is Copes still the best deal going on them?

Copes is now out.

MIdway has them at $35. You could always use a coupon.
Link Posted: 3/3/2012 10:51:10 AM EST
I lucked up and found 6 of these at a local gun store for $20 each, new.... needless to say I jumped all over them. I wish they would get more for that price, but I am suspecting that it was just something they had in the store that they were selling for someone else, or they belonged to somebody who worked at the gun store.

Looks like Copes has them in stock again.
