Are they decent makes (okay, d&h, NHMTG, center)or all blackhawk and Promag? If they are the former, even in used condition $6-7/per is usually a good price. The latter. 3-5 I guess.

Standard used USGI 30rd aluminum body magazines for $4.50 each is a good deal as long as the feed lips are not thinned, cracked, or there is any body damage.

I was buying very good condition used mags for $5 ea in quantities of 5 or more about 6-12 months ago. And thought those were very good deals.

But if the mags in question have any problems, or are heavily used then I am not sure any price would be a good deal.

FWIW - NIW USGI aluminum mags can be had for around $7.50-$8.50 in todays market. Some folks would probably strongly argue that at these kinds of prices why not just get new ones. I understand that line of thought. Its just that I like saving money where I can. So if I can inspect the mags, I have no problems buying used ones.

Regards,

Rob

Hold on to them until the next panic and you can unload them at $20 a pop.

Anything under $6 per mag is a buy for me.

Are you interested in buying some at $5 each? I have more than you could ever want.
