$13 these days will get you well-used surplus. I actually got lucky and scored some Springfield Armory FAL mags for ~$13 each, NIW Israeli. That was an aberration, however. SA's supply pretty much presents the last available NEW surplus FAL mags, and the price is back up to $20 each. Still a good deal as far as NIW mil contract mags go.
The FAL mag market, presuming a polymer design is viable WRT the mag catch location, would be good for far more sales than the G-36 market (notwithstanding the capitol police...and I thought they got rid of theirs?).

I think that's enough still in active duty to make landing 2-3 big contracts worth it.
