I have a couple of 20 rounders that are brand new in plastic and am wondering what they are worth. I researched them on Troy"s magazine info site and this is what I found out about them: (thanks Troy)

If they are brand new in wrap, I'd guess $20-25 each. That's about all I'd pay, but you might get more than that on Gunbroker.

I used to like them, because you could jump with them, and not get caught. Not supposed to jump with a mag in in training.

I still have a couple left over. No AR yet, but I do have an upper in the works.

Target Shooter those sound really cool with the history on them and everything. I got mine when I bought a Bushmaster a couple years ago from my ffl, lord knows where he got em.

I have bought a few 20s for my retro build, they are just handy and fit so easily in your hand
