Is anybody currently selling any completely functional but really worn magazines? The ones you see on the news that are nearly silver from constant use are what I'm looking for. I have a whole stack of mags that look new but I'd like to find a few vets. Thanks.

Don't they have sandpaper where you live?

Well, yeah, I could beat one up myself but I was hoping to find something a bit more original.

What is this world coming to when a AK owner cares about looks?
Buy a AR if your that concerned

Well I'd like to know too. I want to do a little "surgery" on a couple of mags and I would hate to screw up new ones.

I've got some mags that are rusted and pitted, dirty and smelly. They work though.

What sort of Surgery are you doing to the mags?

I want to shorten a couple of magazines to hold 15 cartridges. I want to use them when firing off sandbags on the bench when zeroing rifles and when checking the sights for correct zero. 20 and 30 shot magazines are too long even when using two sandbags.

Thanks for the information. As soon as I find a couple of well used magazines I'll make up some fifteen shot mags.

I would want some, but only because they would probably be piss cheap and because a minuite of spraypaint would make them decent enough to not rust.

Lemme guess... you also wear prewashed jeans, dontcha?

Get some Hungarian 20 round mags. They work well for what you're wanting.
Then sand them down for that battlefield pickup look if you want.

heck i found a polish AK mag out in the desert while shooting, all rusted to hell and the finish is gone, the inside was in great shape tho and it functions great.
