You apparently think I am stupid person? I picked up a nice Winchester MODEL 36 in 9mm for $100 bucks today and decided it would look better to spray paint the stock and barrel neon green... (sarcasm)
The guns I have I shoot.. I use them a lot.. the Mossy was to the point where I would have almost thrown it away.. but instead hit the barrel with crushed walnut to get the rust off.. but I didn't want to re-blue a gun that is only worth $250 in UNFIRED condition.. This gun is just for blowing holes in things out in the woods and clearing out the rabbits that plague havoc in the garden.. I don't show up at rare gun shows with it and say, "hey check out my new hot rod." lol
Anyway as far as the mag problem.. I bought one of those after market replacements a few years back since I bought it with no mag.. but maybe they sent me the wrong model? Im trying to track down some pictures to compare it, since there are no ID #'s on it
