    I just got in 24 of the surplus mags from sportsmansguide, and they are covered in cosmo. Whats the best way to get these completely cleaned out? Hose them down with brake cleaner?

    BTW, this look pretty nice, only noticed one small dent, no rust. No clue where any of them are from though.

    I got a couple rarer ones, got 2 slab sides too, traded a couple beat up fleurs for soviet waffle on another board :coold: I wish I had gotten a bunch of waffles.

    Last shipment I got was 2 12 packs and got fleurs in there but about 50% of the mags were really beat up, a couple need new followers and floor plates, most could use a refinishing and one standard ribbed is bent looks like it run over. They might be reaching the bottom of the barrel.

    those fluers arent worth shit anymore either. no one is getting 75 for them, price has stabilized around 60 or so. i wouldnt pay 75 for one at this point.
