Well, I finally found some New Thompson mags from Northridge. There setting me back $30 bucks each so I could just get 5 on this order but at least they are new in the wrapper, won't have to worry about pitting, dents or scratches. Only problem is they've got a 3 week delivery time right now, guess their backed up with orders. Now if my other parts would come in I could get the show on the road and get my "baby" looking like I want it to look. Talk to ya'll later. wink.gif

Northridge states 3 weeks, but is usually faster than that. $30.00 seems too much though..

It does sound like a lot but if I can be sure to get "New" mags then I'm willing to pay alittle more to get them. After the stuff that I got from CDNN and with everyone else telling horror stories about other places that they've ordered from I'd just rather not take a chance on getting more junk. I really don't think I can do better then New. Besides, my "baby" is worth it,LOL. biggrin.gif

30 rd mags are one TSMG accessory not in short order. I suppose you could stockpile them, but why?

For some crazy reason I LOVE to stockpile stuff. Having a bunch of ammo or mags or whatever gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling. blink.gif I remember one time in college when I worked security the school couldn't give out these welcome packs to the girls because they had tampons in them and some of the parents got mad about it, anyway, we got to break them down and take whatever, I got like a bazillion small bottles of Excedrin, man it was fun having so much stuff to take care of a headache. I feel the same way about ammo, it's very cool to have a 1000 rnds spread out on the floor and run your fingers thru it. It's like you've got so much you'll never need any more, but then we all know that you'll always need more ammo. I'd still like to put some Thompson mags back, just in case. You never know when the government might stop all "hi cap" mag sales to "civilians" with one of their stupid laws. unsure.gif So while I can get em' and when I can afford too I plan on stickin' a few back for a "rainny day" just in case. cool.gif

Unless it was the picture on the screen, the mags did not look "new". Granted even new mags are old, I have gotten some with 100% blue, not dents and scratches for $15 each. The picture, mostly the top mag looks to be dented near the bottom and the bottom mag looks like it has had a lot of rough handling.

OK I'm lost... We are both looking at the same pic right? I see no dents and the blue looks like 100% to me... But I could be wrong.... I'll admit the photography is bad, and they need to be wiped down....

Jim,

I have to agree with Big Daddy on this one. The mags look new and undented, albeit with the need for a little cleanup. Light refletions can cause (or hide) all sorts of things, but in this case it just looks like a good cleaning will show these to be really nice mags.

TN.Frank,

I agree with others that $30 is a bit steep, but I support your purchase if this is your only practical source of good mags. Some times I do a lot of lookin and no findin for items at the "going rate".

i has just got'n the worse of the cosmo off and snaped a pic. biggrin.gif

At the risk of appearing to be a shill for CDNN, I will say that I am am VERY pleased with the twenty 30-rounders I bought from them. Here's a picture...

Other than being filled with a bunch of grease, I think these mags are just about perfect. $15 each.

The problem with CDNN is that they won't take back any defective mags for a refund or exchange. Their policy is that you have to send problem mags back to the manufacturer. That's weak!

Hey Frank....

Please understand I'm not meaning to question your decision. I'm just making sure everyone doesn't automatically conclude from this thread that the $15 Thompson mags from CDNN are junk. Good luck to all!

I've bought 6 XXX mags from CDNN in groups of 2. A couple of times I've tried to buy and they were out of stock. All have been very good+. Several had weak springs which I've replaced. None super, none junk - worth the $15 plus HIS to me. I've seen (and not bought) worse at $20 at gun shows. I've bought just as good at gun shows for $12.
