    Default Century's PKM (PSL really) Magazines

    Century is selling PKM mags for $100 for 25 in "fair" condition. Most people I have heard of getting these have received six to eight in excellent condition with the rest in various states from rusted solid to lightly dusted with rust. Regardless if you get six good ones you've paid for the deal, and the odds are you'll get more than six good ones.

    I got 25 excellent condition PKM mags when I bought the 25 mag deal. None had significant damage. By significant I mean aesthetic or functional.

    Oops! Brain fart. PSL it is.

    My Century Sales rep I've known for several years, and he's a straight shooter. Many times I've asked him about products only to have him say he was saving them for his major accounts, while at other times he's told me of an impending event like ammo shortages and parts kits drying up. His advice has enabled me to get in on many great deals that I've told about here and on other boards. Never once has the guy lied to me, and that's why I trusted him on the $100 deal. It's a lot of money, but if you get four working mags you've broken even. He tells me most people are getting ten to fifteen good useable mags. I got 25 excellent mags.

    If someone buys some and has spares I would gladly trade some bosnian 2 liners for a couple.

    Is it shown in this thread?. Are those the ones with the Fleur de lis? Those are the only magazines I'm interested in. I live in New Orleans, ans they might be appropriate when I go to parties, church, work, or jury duty
