These Romanian Military 30rd Magazines are are used and show wear but are in fully operational condition. Expect to see dents, dings, rust, pitting, and wear on these magazines because they are straight off the battlefield. These magazines have followers checked for functionality.
Mags show usage and some rust here and there. There are also some dents on the mag body and the ribbed metals are slightly bent. One of the mag floor plate is also bent. These are things to be expected though so the description was on point. The mags locks in all my AKs and seems to function. Won't know until taking it out to the range. But I'm happy so far with it.
Good magazine, love the aesthetic and they are a great price. Just requires some fitment on the locking lugs but for the money I would buy again.
These magazines are in great working order and the slight wear and pitting on them gives a cool look to them. The bluing is in okay condition and has its own aesthetic but I opted to touch up bluing. The weight on these feel lighter than my Yugo and Polish steel mags and for that reason I like these better than those magazines.
Smells a bit funky, but loads comfortably with clip guides and feeds decently and surprisingly wasn't a PITA to insert into my Md.63 build. It's almost like they were made for eachother.
All in all, not too bad. I would be somewhat disappointed if I paid full price, rather than the $16 sale price. Out of 5 mags purchased, one was pretty crappy. It was heavily pitted and rusty. The others weren't too bad, just a lot of usage, which is to be expected. Asked for blued/painted, but still got one that was parkerized. Would I buy these again? I don't know... maybe if I didn't have other options. If you're strictly looking for Romanian mags, then I guess I would recommend them. If you're hoping for something kind of nice, you might as well spend the extra money and get a higher grade. After seeing these in person, I would have felt better had they been about $2 cheaper per mag. Oh well... at least they have them in stock, and they were shipped quickly.
For 14.99, they’re a good deal. I ordered 16 total. Most of mine would be considered grade 3. I was pleased. Expect them to come straight out of the mud and dirt. They’ll all clean up better than they first appear. A brass brush and some gun oil will do the trick. I had one 1 that looked new after cleaning. Mostly Romanian mags. I think there were a few other origins in that mix. I did have 2 mags that were pretty rough. One had a bent bottom and the floorplate was bent too and won’t come off. The follower gets stuck there. One had excessive rust everywhere. The bad part of that is that it’s between layers. Overall, I would recommend picking up a few. I have the rusted mag soaking overnight, trying to get in those hard to reach places. I’m still trying to fix the bent mag. These 2 mags are the only two of the 16 mags I got if I saw at a store I wouldn’t have paid 14.99 for.
AoA customer service is excellent. They talk to you like you’re a friend and not just a cc#. My customer service rep experience alone made me an AoA for life.
Very nice condition for grade 3 battlefield pickup. Out of the two o ordered none had any rust or dents. Perfect worn patina finish. They function perfectly and look fantastic. Time to order more
Great mags, a little rough around the edges but work fine, and clean up great. Bought 12+, one wasn't working but AoA is on the case and sending a replacement after getting back the return on the one
I bought two Romanian magazines and two Polish magazines. For what you pay, the polish blued/painted magazines are the best. These Romanian magazines are nice as well but the ones I received had quite a bit of rust and pitting however they were functional. One magazine had a dent which the follower would get stuck on so I had to return it for an exchange. The customer service has been great in the process of exchanging it. If you want magazines for best functionality I would go with the polish magazines but if you want magazines with a worn/battlefield look to it I would go with the Romanian. I would definitely buy again!
