OK, we've shown each other our weapons, ammo and other gear, let's see some mags! I could actually use some ideas on storing the things... How do ya'll do it? This is my modest pile: [img]http://www.gulftel.com/tnolfe/mags.jpg[/img] Wish I'd bought more poly mags for my AK... Those things rock! A few more USGI AR mags would be nice too...

MAJORWOODY, hope you don't grab the AR mag with blanks loaded when you need real ammo. [:D]

1GUNRUNNER, I guess there is a smartass in every group, eh? :) Damn, guys, I feel inadequate! Swire, that is one nice group of waffles! Do you know where/if any more are available? (I need 7x62) Majorwoody, Gunrunner, Swire, it's guys like you who help me out with the wife... "But Honey, I'm not a nut..." :) Actually, I get to show her how I need MORE! NICE collections guys!

This was my collection as of last May, before my digicam broke. I've nearly doubled it since including the addition of a C-Mag. [img]http://wsphotofews.excite.com/029/JU/YN/k7/Vu72991.jpg[/img] [img]http://wsphotofews.excite.com/024/bz/mY/tc/gE27743.jpg[/img]

That's nothing compared to what I used to have. Used to have 200 7.62 waffles sitting in boxes. Right now I can't help you with the waffles, but I'll see what I can do. The 7.62 that I have left are for my collection and the .223 waffles that I had are sold. If more become available I will have them on auctionarms.com and gunbroker.com. There are still people selling them on those sites but they are charging several dollars more per mag than what I was.

You'd be surprised to see how fast one person can run through that. All it took was one trip to an AR15.com shoot... and I saw how easy it is to run through 600 rounds (20 loaded mags), very quickly. I have started a personal goal, to buy used AR15 mags for $10 every so often, and NIW ones for $20 every so often. A dealer at the DFW shows used to have 5 NIW centers for $100.... now they want $25 each, period. :-( I figure, if they go up in value with a re-newal/replacement of the 1994 Crime bill, then I win. And getting any new, quality, hi-cap mag, for $20... you are not going to lose on that one.

I bought a NIW Adventureline with green follower for $20 cash at the 2000 table show in July of this year before I had my AR as a "motivational aide." If I had the money, I would have bought more. Unfortunately I did not. Now the same dealer is selling them for $30 NIW. Used with good finish are going for $20. [:|] God Bless Texas

You should check that mag, A 'new-in-wrap' Adventureline mag should not have a green follower.

Which mags did ship new, in pre-94, with green followers? I have seem some advertised, and was curious?

I know that Sanchez shipped some with green followers. Don't know about anybody else. Michael

Sanchez is a definite yes. Okay Ind. I'm pretty sure. Some of the Labelle manufactured teflons had green followers (in particular Armalite - not sure if Armalite or Labelle did it). Some Center Ind. may have had green followers. The problem w/ Adv.line having them is that according to comments from Troy, Adv.line was something like 70's to early 80's vintage then Parsons took over and then in the late 80's Center took over so 'NIW' Adv.line can't/shouldn't have green followers. My fear would be that the floorplates and/or bags were switched with refinished, post-ban dated Center mags??

HOLY COW! I have 2 magazines for my AR! hehehe... a 20rd and a 30rd. I know, I feel inadequate, but I'll be obtaining more soon! Don't think I'll get more than half a dozen of each size, should do me fine since I usually only shoot at a proper range and don't plink too much with my AR.

Not all of them just some NIB 20rd made in '69 &'70. A friend of mine gave them to me a while back when they were cheap and could be found every where.
