The XX mags are not unlike the ones I got from "What a Country". Well used, many with the holes filled (British) and covered with much grease. I found that 1 out of every 5 was trash. Not what I would call a real good buy. You better own the mag anvil if you are going to purchase as I had to use the anvil to get any of them to feed.

What does the spam can ammo cost with the s/h included?
I have bought 3 cans at gun shows for prices from $65 to $80. Look around there.
The stuff is steel cased, and corrosive.
But it goes BANG! laugh.gif

Tell me more about the anvil. Is this a homemade item or can you buy one somewhere? I made a tool out of a large wooden dowel to force a dent out of a Thompson mag I got from Tapco.

I bought five XX clips from them. three were bad condition, with one having the holes filled in, two with dents. I called them. They sent a prepaid shipping label. I returned them for three more. They were in great condition. 90%+ Then I ordered four more XX clips - great condition as well. I was very pleased overall.

Ill tell ya what I did.... I ordered eight or nine I cant remember ...Picked out the best five to fill my mag pouch and sent the rest back... They are fair to deal with. I got mostly seymore and auto ord. Just take a credit or have something else in mind that you want from them. Worked great for me...
