"3 out of 6 mags that i ordered wouldnt fit, and had to be taken apart and cleaned. a LITTLE cleaning was expected, but not as much as i did. GLOBS of grease were inside the mags and were a pain in the rear to clean. I guess i should have known to stick with the new mags."

"Well, these mags are surplus. The cosmo (grease) is there to protect them while they were in storage. Good exercise though, having to take them apart and cleaning them. For the price you pay they are as good as those found elsewhere."

"I just got my mags two days ago and there was of course some cosmo (grease) on them but not too much at all. They are in great condition almost like new! They all fit right in the gun and work perfectly. I plan to get more now that i know how they work and you all should buy'em up to."

"I am very pleased with my purchase of these magazines. They come packed in grease, so you have to clean them up. That's no problem at all, because you're getting military-grade mags with durability and smooth feeding all the way here. I have a Romanian AK and they fit perfect and work great. I'll buy more!"

"i just got a order of 5, 2 are dented just a bit but the Follower sticks so they are of no use, but as 10 and 20 round mags on the range. Plenty of oil not much caked on grease. So only minor cleaning was needed. still check your mags to make sure they are fully working."

"For the money these mags are a great deal. Some of these mags don't fit perfectly in the receiver of my WASR-10 but after a few seconds with a rotary tool on the mag it fit just perfect (no modifications needed on the rifle). Spring strength is just right and these mags are very durable. Overall best bang for buck!"

"These are good magazines, and I prefer them over any polymer fancy dancy magazines outsid eof TRUE military mags, but they can be had for 8 bucks a piece at most gun shows I've been too...add shipping to this and it's twice as much as it should be..."

"have ordered three of these mags so far. Each one received is different in quality. Last one I ordered was extremely dirty (still had shipping lube inside). I have a hard time believing these mags have never been issued because each of them I purchased have been well used. Regardless, heavy duty quality item for the price!"

"Well, in my first order of these mags, I saw signs of wear and tear, i.e. rust, dents, and some cosmoline. While 3 out of the 4 mags I ordered worked perfectly, I had to take some tools to smooth out the mag body, and a dremel to work out the sharp corners on the follower. After that, all 4 worked like a charm. My second order was quite different. 5 out of the six I ordered were good, some had more rust than others, one was literaly NEW never been used, then mister murphy came and said hi. The last mag is emulsified in cosmoline. The body is straight, and the follower seems to work, but the thing is totally coverd and filled with cosmoline. I understand that I bought surplus mags, I was willing to take the hit, but cant qc at least take a closer look at the products before they get sent out? Either way, 9 out of the 10 mags work great. Like I said, some needed some work, the last one needs Jesus and acouple cans of break free or a parts washer."

"Just got both mags that I ordered. Both were in almost pristine condition with storage cosmoline intact. A little treatment with the heat gun to melt off the cosmo, a quick wipe and a touch of CLP and they are ready to rock! These are better than the mags that came with my WASR-10/63!!! Cheaper Than Dirt comes thru again!!! Thanks guys!!!"

"These were supposed to be unissued, excellent condition 30 round mags. One looks like it came over on the mayflower, 50% of the blue rubbed off. The other one looked brand new except for a spot about the size of a dime that was almost rusted through. I have bought a lot of stuff from CTD in the last month, have never got anything this bad. I will still buy from CTD, hopefully my future orders will be as good as my first ones were."

"These are the best AK-47 mags I have seen anywhere. They were shipped thursday and arrived saturday. Thanks Cheaper than Dirt! They fit the stg-2000-c ak-variant, contrary to what PRO-MAG has been claiming, that only pro-mags fit the stg-2000-c."

"These mags are nice. Mine had a couple small spots of rust but nothing that wd-40 wouldn't take care of. I have to do alittle filling, BUT that is my fault since I am using them on a WASR-1O with a single to DOUBLE stack conversion. No jams out of 60 rounds. Good for the price!88"

"I don\uFFFDt know about \uFFFDUn-issued Condition,\uFFFD but you cant beat these for the price. I\uFFFDve ordered 6 and all have functioned perfectly once cleaned up. Expect small amounts of rust, dents, and lots of grease. Break them down and use brake pad cleaner found at any auto parts store to take off the grease, and what ever oil you prefer for the rust. Load and shoot :)"

"First I must say that this magazine appears brand new... maybe it was refinished, but I see no evidence of that. It cane in a little plastic bag that was bulging with cosmoline (grease). It may be a little messy at first, but that grease is why it is in such good condition. A few minutes with a few paper towels and it was ready to go. Disassembly was easy, I used only a bullet tip as a tool, and later discovered you really only need your pinky finger. The lips on this thing are very thick, you won't bend them. In all, it is held together with something like 49 spot welds (I think that was how many I counted). There is a loaded magazine indicator at 30 rounds which is just a hole so you can see the head of the cartridge, so apparently the communists don't load down by 2 (who knew?)An excellent magazine... I have never seen anything better regardless of price. This is a great magazine, and at a great price. Don't bother looking through the rest of the AK mags, believe me I picked through them all, this is the one you want if you are looking for quality at a great price."

"I have 8 of these from various countries, some from here, some from elsewhere. These things are indestructible. I have only had problems with 2 of them, I just took them apart, and on both, the followers had been slightly bent. took a pair of pliers to them and voila, absolutely no problems with any of my ak mags, including my 2 poly pro mags. 5 stars."

"I just got this mag today and i was very happy with it. Steel mags are deffently the best in my mind and this one is worth the money. I have a Wasr 10 low cap modded to a high cap and the mag fits perfect, highly recommend"

"I picked up 2 of these just because the price was good. Mine arrived with no cosmoline on them at all and both of them were rusted in a couple of spots. They are definately not new but after some wd-40 and a coat of flat black paint it looked alot better. For the price, I cant complain.....to much. They work."

"I have a total of seven of the thirty round mags, and they are as advertised. I dont understand the problem in dealing with the cosmoline, that was a way of life in the military, and that is what you are getting, military magazines. I wonder what some would say if they received a rifle that had been packed in it?(Cosmoline) Good stuff, that would be the mags. Max"

"Bought two of these. \"Unissued condition\" is not accurate by a long shot. One is about 80% at best and the other is ragged beyond belief. Bluing is about 50% and lots of rust. Havent used it yet but spring is very weak. Very unimpressed with these. I might send them back."

"I bought three of these for my Yugo UF and they are great. All three were brand new and fit very well. They had a little cosmoline on them and had to be wiped off but that took like 10 minutes. I've been to the range with them and they all work fine. Highly recommended."

"I have had about 70% success rate with these magazines, meaning most of these mags I order are in working condition mechanically and are aesthetically in good shape. I have, however, received 2 or more mags that simply did not function (caused AKM to jam, etc).Nevertheless, I am ordering 1 more mag."

"I placed my order for 3 of these on Saturday evening. The mags arrived today and I am absolutely ecstatic. They were in storage bags with cosmoline. After an hour with some WD-40, some rags and some paper towels, they are like new. In fact, they look better than the ones I got with my WASR. All lock into my AK with no problems. I can't wait to load them out and take them on the range for a test run. Buy from CTD. They are on top of their game."

"I bought two of these MAG's advertised in VG to Exc condition. They were so pitted and rusty, they wouldn't fit into the rifle. It wasn't worth trying to repair them so I sent them back for a refund. Poor to average condition would have been a better description for the MAG's I received."

"Since these are the first non-composite metal magazines I have purchased I may be overly critical here. I ordered 4 of these magazines and they were all well used and are not in what I would view as \"excellent\" condition. They are in working condition and to give CTD credit, visually they initially look to be in pretty good condition. However, after breaking them down and cleaning them up, they have been used extensively and have the wear to prove it. There was some hidden rust externally under the grease on one, and when you broke them down the spring in another is pitted. Two of the four have holes worn through the followers where they hit the stops at the top and a third follower is well worn. Two are also worn at the front catch such that there are holes and a small stress crack at the top front lip of the magazine. After spending a few hours cleaning them thoroughly and applying teflon dry lube I expect them to function fine. Manually they appear to work fine although I have not yet live fired them. Overall these are functional and worth the money, but I'll probably buy a few more composits before purchasing more of these."

"I ordered six of these mags and five were in really good shape and function perfect. One of them came with a spring that isn't the right size for the mag. It's about 1/3 the length of the other five. When the mag is loaded it doesn't have the strength to push a single round up. I'll still be buying more of these mags though, at 20 bucks it's worth the gamble."

"very fair price for these mags. I have tried all of my mags out in my romanian wasr-10. Some grease, some paint wear but hey you can't complain for 20 bucks. I've seen a local gun shop sell the same for 30. So pick them up while you still can."

"got 4 of these mags and only 2 were good. the other two had expanded tops so they did not fit into my ak. another bad thing about them is they don't fit every ak. i have a newer one from russian american arms, and they don't fit. now to get my moneys worth i have to mill they mag release a couple millimeters to get it to catch. DO NOT BUY THESE MAGS, THEY ARE MILITARY REJECTS FOR A REASON...."

"I ordered 10 of these and they were all rusty. It was nothing that couldn't be cleaned so I didn't worry about. When I got to taking them apart and inspecting them I found that the springs had been used extensively but they seemed to function properly. There was only one I had a problem with. The follower it would not rise completely. It would get stuck about 8 millimeters from the top. It turns out the top of the mag had been bent inwards. I will have to send it back but overall it was a great price for something you are going to shoot the daylights out of anyway."

"I bought one of these magazines about a week or so ago, it was a little scruffed up and used like most military surplus gear, but still worked fine. I bought another one because I was impressed with my first purchase, and the second one was in even better condition. Was almost brand new, hardly any scratches on it and when I took it apart the spring was almost in pristine condition! These things are built to last, buy them now before they get banned and it's too late! It is a marvelous deal! Well worth it!!"

"This mag has seen a lot of use. It was squeezed open when I got it and it wouldn't fit in my WASR10.On the plus side, it's an AK mag, I took a hammer and an old railroad tie plate and banged it back into shape.Now it works and fits great."

"These mag's seem to be of good quality, and function without a hitch. My concern or complaint is why when CTD packages these mag's, these can't BE cleaned by them? Everyone of mine (4) came in a separate bag, but with rust on each side. I shouldn't have to clean a new product, surplus or not!!!"

"Bought one for my WASR 10/63. Figured the price was low enough that if it didn't fit right or anything else was wrong with it, no big loss. All I can say is, wow! Perfect fit, no wobble at all.

"I ordered one of these and I'm happy with it. The mag was very dirty when it arrived, it took me over 20 minutes to clean it. There was a small amount of rust but not a big deal. As long as you don't mind cleaning them these mags are a good deal. Fast shipping as always."

"They come covered in cosmo-line or some other grease, so be prepared to clean them well. I bought 2. One worked perfectly and one did not. Fairly easy fix; I squeezed the feed lips together with a vise and \"modified\" the follower and it worked. Haven't fired with them yet, but they cycle fine. Some rust, but nothing that I couldn't steel wool off. All in all, they seem sturdy like the mags that came with my gun, and with a little effort look like new. Expect this when you buy surplus like this."

"I bought one of these mags to give it a shot. It was oily but not bad. I gave it a good cleansing and looks great. It was a little worn around the mouth, but it is used. It had no rust and fit well in both the WASR-10, and Mak-90 with no problems. I have to pick up a few more."

"Update this mag does NOT WORK in my WASR as the bolt wont catch the round to chamber it. I tried it again in the Norinco, and it worked in there. I think this is last steel mag for me. I am going to stay with reliable and much lighter poly mags. That also goes for AR mags. The mag problems I have is in no way related to CTD, they did another awsome job on order and delivery."

"They come covered in cosmo-line or some other grease, so be prepared to clean them well. (Soak in boiling hot soapy water for an hour or so, take out of water and wipe down until all cosmo is gone, but be careful because the parts might burn you if not careful.) I bought 2 of these. One worked perfectly after the cleaning and one did not. Fairly easy fix though; I squeezed the feed lips together with a vise and \"modified\" the follower (I removed the back clip/piece and it worked perfect), then fired 30 rounds through the mag 4 times and it fed perfectly. Some minor rust on both, but nothing that I couldn't steel wool off. All in all, the magazines are very sturdy, just like the mags that came with my gun(WASR 10 with original AK mags), and with little effort look and function like new."

"This is the absolute standard in ak mags. Its probably what came with yours when you bought it and its what came with my M70AB2. Very good mag, great condition, in need of a few minutes TLC. Little bit of elbow grease and the cosmoline and junk was gone. Reliably cycled a round by hand and a nice snug fit with no mag wobble. Between these and the tapcos (which I have not shot with yet) you can't go wrong."

I think for the price you can't go wrong, these magazines are very easy to take apart, and clean (I use mineral spirits and a rag, then a light spray of rem-oil on the spring)."

"Both my dad and me own an AK style rifles. His is a Yugo and mine is Romanian. I just recently got another AK style pistol, and these mags work well in all of the rifles. Some of these kind of mags don't go in far enough and don't allow for a smooth feed, but never had any problems when using these mags. They work well!"

"You can't beat this deal. Metal mags are far better than plastic or composite. It says used in the description and it most certainly was. After disassembley and a good five minutes worth of cleaning it was like brand new. My only issue was the spur on the back being too thick to seat properly. After only a couple of passes with a flat file, it fit like a glove and operated quite smoothly. There were no problems feeding or ejecting. It's been hard to find a low priced mag for a MAK-90, but this was it and i'll be ordering more. Great value for an even better price. Thanks C.T.D.!"

"OK, I ordered 3 of these as the TAPCO's that came with my WASR-10 did not fit well. I had one that needed some minor steel wool work, the other 2 were pristine ALL in Cosmoline, ALL functioned in my WASR-10 with no issues, 30 mags took 30 rounds, fired 500 rounds at the range today. The Tapco plastic 30 rounders going to the recycling center."

"I ordered 3 just to see what I would get, individually packed in cosmoline, easy to clean. One said made in China, the other 2 were plain AK Mags, all loaded 30 rounds, all performed well with no jamming and the fit was excellent, one had some rust, the other 2 were fine. I will order several more at this price. All fired through a WASR-10 AK without issue."

"After about five minutes of degreasing and re-oiling, these mags looked amazing. As long as you don't expect a used military surplus item to be in mint condition, these rock. I bought three, and one arrived brand new. No scratches or anything. Another one was in great condition. The third jammed the minute I tried to load it, so that one is a dud. If you expect something to feed your AK, these will do."

"I ordered 3 of these magazines based on the positive reviews. Managed to get them all quickly and one was loaded in cosmoline the other two were in a light oil. Pulled them out and the one covered in cosmoline was great, the other 2 needed a lot of work. Both had dented magazine bodies which prevented the follower from traveling. Both had rust issues in the actual magazine bodies. After a hour or so with a hammer, a brass brush, and a file they feed now. Would not recommend for anybody not handy with some tools as they are surplus and you should expect them to need a little tune-up. Would give 3 bullets but the rust issues kind of twisted my judgment."

"I ordered two of these. One was in great shape, worked well and looked as if it had been used very little. The second was atrocious, rusted all over and pitted.

"I bought three of these. One was Grade 1, one was Grade 2 (in good condition and fully functional.) The 3rd mag was in poor condition with small rivet sized dents about midway down on the sides. The mag would only load about 8 rounds. I drilled 4 holes into the side of the jacked mag, filed the burrs, brushed the rust away, lightly oiled and----bingo! I now have three solid, functional steel mags. All had rust inside and out. All had to be broken down and cleaned. A piece of cake."

"Great mags. I had to send one back, and CTD sent me one without making return the damaged one. I prefer the metal over the plastic. Great job CTD, and thank you for your great customer service. I will order more when the time comes."

"These magazines are far from grade 1 (new or like new) as advertised. They are beat up, dinged up and wore out. While they may or may not be serviceable on arrival, don\uFFFDt call them grade 1. I would not recommend you not waste your money on these, too much of a crap shoot as to what you will get."

"I bought 3 of these. I received them rather quickly. They are definitely grade I. They are used and a little banged up, but they definitely serve their purpose. One of the 3 gets stuck in my romanian WASR-10, but it was nothing that a file couldn't take care of. I definitely recommend getting these. I am going to order more soon."

"I have no problem that these mags. They could be dented or look like they been in WW2. I just would like it to work. I bought one of these to test them out. First, I would like to comment on the great fast shipping, as always. But, this product needs some QC. One of the metal lips that holds the rounds in is clearly bent off to the side and will not hold round #1 and every round after that can be pushed straight up and out. It will jam a never jamming WASR 10 every round. Some mags may come as grade 1 but mine is grade 0. I would never advise anyone to take a chance on these."

"I only ordered one of these to try it out. The one that I received came packed in a zip-lock bag in a lot of heavy oil, with some spots of corrosion. After cleaning it up with WD-40 and a wire brush it looks nearly as nice and clean as the two mags that came with the rifle. So far, the mag feeds rounds reliably and otherwise functions fine, but it sticks a little in the magazine well as the release catches on the mag's retaining nub, or whatever it's actually called. I haven't taken a file to the mag yet but I believe that this would eliminate any catching."

"I am a first time buyer with Cheaper Than Dirt! I ordered four and received today. Although, I have not fired a round through them I did do a test fit after cleaning the oil off. And loaded 30 rounds several times it feed good spring tension was excellent. Grade 1 as stated. They fit in my WASR 10. I definitely would buy again. Lighting fast shipping. I will be a CTD customer in future. Thanks, guys!"

"I bought two of these mags and 5 other types of mags. Everything else was as promised. I was surprised to take the mags out of the bag too find both were very rusty inside and out to the point of pitting. I know it said \"used\" but I expected better from CTD. I don't plan on returning them but be forewarned. The ones I received were clearly \"Grade one\"."

"I purchased 2 of these for combat reload practice and, after copious amounts of cleaning, found they fit both my VEPR and WASR-10 better than the polymer mags they came with, and worked perfectly. I'll buy more, but cleaning the oil is a pain."

"I have been very impressed by all the products I have ordered from CTD and this order did not change that. They were just as advertised, good condition, used magazines.

"I'm somewhat distrustful of polymer magazines, mostly because I'm uncertain of how much abuse they can be put through. No problems with these metal magazines. They fit perfectly in my WASR-10, and feed flawlessly every time. They had a little bit of the protective oil on them, but just wiping them down a bit quickly takes care of that. They came in quickly and were in great shape for having been used. You couldn't even tell on one of them. No feeding problems whatsoever, and loading is a breeze!"

"Got a great mag, fits without wobble in a WASR-10/63. No rust, pretty heavy cosmoline coating on all surfaces inside & out (that's a good thing in my book). Solid spring with no rust. Has a better finish than the mags that came with my WASR, and frankly I had to look carefully to see any sign of use at all. Prompt shipping as always from CTD, five bullets from me. I only ordered one just to see what I'd get, because I'd read some mixed reviews here, but my mind is at ease now & I'll be ordering more for sure."

"Ordered one of these mags after buying a WASR 10/63 from Cabela's (I would have bought the rifle from CTD but they were out). The magazine is in great condition and actually is a tight fit in the rifle. I now have it mixed up with the 2 that came with the rifle. I would buy more but may be able to find the same quality mag a bit cheaper, hence the 4 bullets. I think I will try the 20 round mags though. While also a bit expensive it can't hurt to have at least one. As usual my order was here in 2 days. Awesome!!"

"Bought this last month and today took it to the range for the second time. Loads just fine, but has a tendency to misfeed the ammo causing a jam. Switched to my 40 round mag and after 200 rounds through those mags had no jams at all. Don't know if I got a bad mag, but wouldn't recommend this mag."

"I bought six of these mags at one time. I plan to buy six more. I have put around 2000 rounds through six mags and have had ZERO problems. I went with these because I wanted the rugged \"used\" been there done that look to my AKMS. They came in less than a week and I was loading 30 rounds in them the day I got them. I went to the range and they performed flawlessly. I highly recommend these mags for anyone who cares not for flash and frills, but rather function."

"I have a bunch of these they all work great. Shipping speed was excellent and the mags are as described. They're surplus magazines from the Eastern Bloc, if you're expecting an awesome finish and pristine quality buy something else. Also, to those complaining about fit: it's your rifle. I have a WASR 10/63 and I have never had any issues with military mags not fitting. I had to pick through a bunch of 10/63s to find one that didn't have a magazine well issue though, so if you're having issues getting magazines to seat and release it ain't the mag, it's your gun. Break out your dremels and get to work or take it to a gunsmith."

"First one worked great. Had a little rust but still worked great. Second one was so badly damaged I could not even load rounds in it. It looked like someone took a welder and welded the follower to the side of the mag."

"I ordered 3 of these to go with a spam can of 7.62x39mm ammo. All 3 came in plastic and had grease on them. Each mag took 4-5 minutes with a paper towel to get 85% of the grease off, which wasn't too bad. One looked brand new, and the other two had extremely minor finish wear and barely noticeable scratches. I doubt any of them had actually been used. I rate these only 4 bullets because I have yet to actually fire them.Personal note: I own an SKS-NR (Chinese SKS made from the factory to take AK magazines), which is the gun I bought these magazines for. They have a bit more wobble than my Chinese magazines, but it's nothing major. The rib down the back takes a little getting used to, since the Chinese magazines I own do not have the rib."

"Don't let the picture fool you. It came in a bag well greased and looks completely brand new. No dings, dents, scratches, wear, you name it. Looks completely brand spankin' new. Have not used it yet to test reliability, but being an AK steel mag, I bet it will be just fine. Buy this, you won't regret it. Feels more solid than the Tapco polymer one for obvious reasons. Thick steel on the feeder lips. Very satisfied with fast shipping. Thanks CTD!"

"Bought two of these. One was shiny, clean, and fit well in my WASR-10/63. The other one had a very rough surface and was covered in gunk, most likely to prevent rust. But when I tried to put it in my AK, it was really tight. It still went in there, but I kinda had to force it. I believe it just needs a little sanding on the sides and it would fit great. Plan on getting more."

"I bought 5 mags & they all came in a zip loc bag, some had more freeze than others, no thing that a little rubbing couldn't cure. They all came delivered in 3 days time, and all work great. I will be buying more of the same mags, they work great in my AK/47"

"From other reviews, I was hoping I'd get a pristine mag with minimal use. On the one I received, the bottom of it looked like somebody had taken their anger out by slamming the mag down on rocks a few dozen times. Very, very wobbly, but it loads and fires fine; it's just beat up. I doubt most are like the one I got or there would be worse reviews."

CTD, once again, you came through with a great product at a fair price and shipped it in a timely manner. Thanks."

"These are great, high quality, steel magazines. I got these brand new, straight from the factory, it appears. No wear and appear not to have used at all. However, one draw back is that they would not fit into my Vector underfolder AK until I filed down the front of the feed lips with a jeweler's file. On the front of these mags, there is a tiny bit of metal that is not flush with the top of the magazine on the front of the clamp. Five minutes of filing and the problem is solved; they fit. I have compared these mags side by side with some of my older mags, where the front of those mags metal front clamp were flush. I'm not sure why these mags have that little bit of metal protruding upward on the front end, since I can't find that flaw in any of my other mags. But, like I said, a slight bit of filing will fix that problem."
