Ditto on Ed Brown's trade-in deal. In my experience the mags you get are EB-branded Checkmates! You can't do better than that.I am interested in what my fellow Fanatics do with unreliable mags.. For me they are gone from Service/Carry use as soon as I Identify them. I do not "adjust the feed lips, change out the Springs/followers etc to "get them working again" then try to put them back for service/carry use. As long as they "somewhat work" I clean the exterior of a few of them carefully with something like B12 Brake Cleaner...then lightly spray paint the lower sections blue...Those go into the range bag.. I load and mix them into my practice.. their failures serve as a training tool.. I smack any others with a hammer and they hit the trash can..
My thought is Magazines are a consumable Item and the above policy keeps some falling out of inventory requiring replacement by new magazines.. What are your thoughts? The idea of having unmarked less than reliable magazines in my general inventory .. spooks me to be honest/
