New ones havent been avaliable for awhile. Now some are so the price took a nice jump. K-var has em for $17. Glad I got eight back when they were $12 apiece.

It's a good thing I have 20 of them.

Supply and demand.

When the demand is higher than the supply, prices climb.

...(Puts on blue lab coat and begins to wave hands in the air and holds up different fingers while yelling)

BUY! BUY!! BUY!!....

Really glad i bought a dozen of them at $9.99 each....

If you want them now, you will have to buy them now.

You can wait and hope that the price will goback down, but there still is a chance that since they are getting that price for them now, when more become available, the price could maintain at current levels,
or even higher due to higher transportation cost and the cost of the petroleum based raw materials that
they are produced from.

I'd buy them now, if i hadn't bought a dozen of them at $9.99 each...

Ive only got about 6 of them but I have a dozen or so steel mags so Im good. The thing is, I guess I just never thought they were all that great. I only bought them cause they were cheap (at the time) and right now there are plenty of nice steel mags for around $10ea. you'd think that would that would offest some of the numbskulls paying such a high price for the waffles.

Capitalism, baby!!! And don't expect them to stay at $30 for long, either!!

What's so special about Bulgarian waffles? Do they make your rifle a tack driver or something?

Link Posted: 8/27/2005 9:10:29 PM EDT
They're sexy.
Link Posted: 8/27/2005 9:15:29 PM EDT
IMO they are the best AK mag ever.

You need to own some to understand.

For new mags, they now have to be shipped via Air Frieght, vs a Sealand container. Shipping companies will no longer ship weapon related items via ship from Bulgaria. This will raise the price a bit.

I am sure you remember that container of Romanian AKs that the Italians stopped, but ended up having valid US permits?

Thats why.

Its not just the Bulgy mags. A year ago I bought some Polish ploy mags for $8 each and now they are going for $20-$25.
Link Posted: 8/28/2005 1:41:35 PM EDT
Polymer mags = new hotness.
Steel ribbed mags = old and busted.

Steel mags are all over the place, and polymer mags seem relatively new - hence, big buying sprees when they arrived.

I know I prefer them to the old, not-as-cool steel mags...
Link Posted: 8/28/2005 3:09:48 PM EDT
my $.02

steel mags: heavier, prone to rust, prone to denting, prone to corrosion, need to be oiled/maintained in storage, need to be oiled/lubricated on inside, older style - many in the us, most are older in age than polymer mages, not as durable, most wobble somewhat in mag-well, make more noise, inconsistant finishes/product, harder to clean, sharper edges...

polymer mags: lighter, not prone to rust, not prone to denting, not as prone to corrosion, don't need to be maintained/ oilked in storage, don't need to be oiled on inside (self-lubricating), newer style, - not as many in the us, most are newer than steel mags, very durable (Bulgy waffles), pleasing to the eye, minimal/no wobble in mag-well, less noise, consistant finish/product, easier to clean, not so sharp edges...

I bought a dozen new Bulgarian 7.62 X 39 waffle mags from Chief Thunder for something like $7-8 dollars a piece. Man, those were the days.

I have no use for any 7.62x39 magazines but until they reach the prices of the Russian bakelite magazines. I don't think anyone has to worry about the price.
