Good FAL Magazines Anywhere?

I recently purchased FAL magazines from two sources - DSA and a local gun show - only to find out that DSA magazines are crap and the gun show magazines are Korean (apparently worse than crap). The only original military FAL magazines I see these days look like they have been run over by a truck several times.

Are there any FAL magazines for sale these days that are good quality and in good shape? If so, where can I buy them?

They are getting harder and harder to find, try finding them in NY. Ive hoarded the precious few I have. Im interested though , you found the DSA's to be crap? I have only been able to find them at gun shows, and for quite the markup in some cases.

I haven't had to buy any for many years so I can't help you there. I can say that I've bought several that were rough looking. As long as nothing is bent or severely pitted, they can be cleaned up and refinished (or painted) and be fine. May have to get new springs.

I would put them in my blasting cabinet, finish them in gunkote, then bake them in a cheap toaster oven. They would come out looking just like new and function flawlessly. I have one that I just spray pained with cheap black spray paint. Won't win any beauty prizes but works just fine.

The general opinion on the FAL files seems to be that the 20rnd DSA mags have problems but the 30 rounders are great. (which seems odd)

I'm just parroting what I've read. I haven't tried any DSA mags but I'll be picking some 10 rounders up in January.
