everybody said about a heavy grease coating, my six only have a light coat of oil, inside and out.
the 3 30 i ordered were advertised as "as new". and as they and the rifle are going to PK i did'nt mind, but their as new is a *little* different from mine. nothing too bad but i don't think they would work as they are.
most people on here that replied stated that the 20s might be a little "rough", and that they are. once agian nothing terriable bad, or atleast nothing that can't be repaired.
the finish on the 30s looks like a fresh reblueing over what appears to be a good surface. just light dings and a few minor scrapes, i think they look good.
the 20s once agian are a little rougher,and once agian i don't mind(i want shooters not lookers). a fresh rebluing over slight surface rust(cleaned off of course) with very slight pitting. over i'd say 85%-90% of the mag(all 3).
over all i'm happy with them. however i knew when i ordered them that they would be taking a trip as soon as they arrived.
just thought i past this along.

Well, the mag catches are probably new, but the 6 mags definitely were not. Five are Seymour; one is Auto Ordnance. Three were refinished -- parkarized. There were a few small dents & dings, but the finish is excellent. No. 4 had some sort of scuzzy flat black finish--uglier than a mud fence. Nos. 5&6 were blued, but there were numerous scratches and worn places.
I called them, and they said to send them back and they'd swap them out for better mags or refund my $. Stay tuned.
So is there a good source for 30 rend mags?

but i'm referring to the follower and the catch thingy that works the bolt hold open lever in the rifle.
i was just comparing a kahr xxx to the un-modified boxs i got from wac, and kahr removes about half of the tab in question.
