First of all, thanks to Tomfoolery for turning me onto these babies. Although, my lighting and photography skills aren't too hot, these mags are flawless. The oxidation look, wipes off easily. Note the mag to the right, I wiped it off with a little Ballistol Oil. It looked like the others before I cleaned it. AIM sold them to me as "USED" for $8.95 a piece. Bought 5 and got a nice pouch with leather strap. Very cool. Thanks for the hot tip, Tomfoolery.
