Hi guys,

It seems like a dun goofed up!

The below are 4 keepshooting plastic mags that I tried to get to fit in my Saiga 12, but I'm sure you can see I suck with tools. My question is is there any way that I can fix them or did I completely goof up?

Thanks bros!

Pictures #2 and #3 look like they might still work. The ones right after that would have to be some sort of re-weld deal to get them back to spec, if at all. Only thing I can think is to have them be magazine bodies to weld onto another mag. Almost nobody does that anymore though since the 10 rd sticks came out.

I'm not sure if you can plastic weld, or something like that to get them to hold for range mags.

Wow..#4 and #5 look hosed for sure. I have three Keep Shooting 5 round mags and they're some of the best fitting mags I have and I did nothing to them to get them to fit. Of course all S-12s are not created equal but it's amazing you'd have to go as far as you did. At $11.95 each it's not a huge loss though...

Our right to keep and bear arms - personally - is the essential element of political liberty, without which we would stand as mere slaves of any current administration, as do most of the people in the world today. We treasure our right to be armed, not only as defense against tyrants, but also as defense against evil men acting alone. Our right to defend ourselves against felons by force of arms protects not only our liberty but also - and this is often overlooked - our dignity. Dignity is a word not often used in the Age  of the Wimp, for by definition a wimp has no dignity.  But dignity remains not only desirable but essential to persons of consequence.  This concept is rejected by the socialist, who feels that dignity resides solely in the state. But we Americans are not socialists (at least most of us are not) and we prize our unique status in world society.

What was the problem that you took that much off? Was it not clicking in or not going all the way in?

I have a MD drum tab welded by MD Arms and it has held up fine.

I haven't tried it, but what about some type of epoxy putty to build the tabs back up? No idea if it would hold up though.

I will give ya 5 dollars each for the messed up mags, if ya want to sell them.
If I can get them fixed I will sell them back to ya.
I would drill 3 or 4 holes, use some good epoxy, holes will help it
hold onto the mag, then file to get the fit.
