    Thanks, John!

    I've come to learn that these things are a bear to load by hand. Each mag only has 3 dummy rnds currently in them... I can't imagine loading all 32 by hand!!

    that is why they made loaders for them. When I shot one of these I could only get about 25 rds in the magazine without a loader. Fun to shoot, but a bear to load.

    Yep! I had read that, but actually trying load them myself made me a believer!

    Doesn't look like a bad case of rust, so CLP and a soft cloth should clean them right up. Nice purchase!

    Those are great finds, but you would do good to look into the new "SAFE" laws that are being enacted in NY with regards to firearms AND mags. I know there are new restrictions on magazine ownership, much more strict than the previous and not sure if there is a grandfather clause as there was previously. Under previous regulations your mags are legal as they were manufactured before 1994, from what I understand under new regs, that won't matter if they are over 7 rounds. I don't follow NY law with such a fine toothed comb since leaving a couple years ago so may be wrong, but these are my understandings from what I have seen and heard.

    Thanks for your concern, FALGuy.

    If/ when the time comes, I'll take the steps to make the mags legal. They're just for display after all. They are currently only loaded with 3 dummy rnds each to give off the appearance that they are fully loaded.
