Not in a firearms application, unless you like practicing clearance drills. They're great for that. They also make good paperweights but you have to make sure to wipe off any carbon or oil, as that tends to stain paper. Door stop is another good use that comes to mind. You can also throw them at the neighbor's dog when it's barking at 2:00 AM. A good clean hit will shut it up quick. They're really too light to use as a boat anchor, so maritime use is quite limited unless you ran out of 4 oz. bank sinkers and just happen to have the mag laying around. They tend to snag on the bottom, so even that application is not really recommended. You can use them as book ends if you tack weld two of them together at an angle, but that means you'd have to buy four of them to make one set, and I think I can find cheaper book ends. In all seriousness, I bought a couple of those mags not too long after purchasing my M1A back in '02 and found that they might only hold 19 rounds, and they only begin to feed in the semi-automatic sense of the word at 18 or less. Feed failures were frequent even when short loaded. Spend a few extra bucks and buy Type 57 mags if you can still find them. Had much better luck with them.bdcochran said:Are they good.
