    Flog em on ebay as spares or repairs and buy the latest auto indexing mags, they never fail to index correctly! The old ones often skip or fail to index resulting in you firing a round of fresh air. Once you have used the new ones you wont want to use those old uns ever again!

    out of the three i got with the gun one of them is a new one with the red indexing wheel and numbers on it, is that the new one or is there a newer one than that?

    Yes that is one of the new ones, the coloured rotor ones are the auto indexing ones, the way they work they cannot fail to rotate to the next pellet even if it is not in the next hole. You can put a pellet in every other hole and they will still fire a pellet every shot! The earlier version of the auto mags have anodised machined alloy rotors, but now they have perfected the design they have spent the money on injection moulding and changed to plastic, these plastic ones also have a last shot indicator. Both types are good, basically if it has a coloured rotor it is the new auto type. Blue for .177 and red for the girls calibre! :D

    BSA used to do a mag repair service and I have even heard of them replacing old with new, its worth a call but the old ones even when new where not the most reliable of things, if BSA wont help you I would flog them and put what ever you get towards another coloured one.
