1) Try Java Photo AKA macjava to see if they still have any in their freezer, 10 yaer old Plus-x reversal, but a good way to see if your camera even works.
2 Those mags take DOUBLE PERF film wound emuslion out on spacial small cores. if you can find some double perf, and make yourself a jug for wining the film in in the dark you can reloead them The threading is a bit tricky as the film goes over the sprket in the middle of the Mag twice.

3) don't forget to have the camera cleaned and lubed.
