I went to a gun show today in Harrisburg and looked for some 30 rnders. The prices were all over the place. From $50 to $12 for a used GI.
Can someone tell me this:
Whats the going rate (fair price) for a USGI, (pre ban, of course), USED, no dents, 30 round mag with about 50 - 90% finish. And black followers.
The cheapest I found were 3 @ $12 each and 2 more @ $16 each. The next cheapest vendor was $19 and up.

You did well, if they truly were GI contract mags.

USGI used mags in the condition you stated are around $15-$20. NIW USGI mags usually go for around $25.

I was really surprised at how much they varied in price. Some clowns actually were trying to get $50! I noticed the british mags are in abundance, they were going from $15-$25. I would have assumed that a glut of the Brit mags would have lowered the price of the GI mags, but no such luck.

i went to buy ar-15 mags yesterday. i told him i wanted one 30 rounder with a green follower. he rings up my price and it was huge. he wanted to sell me a 95% 30 rounder for $39. WTF? he has NIW for $30. i didn't get it. i have never seen a mag that high. what's the highest price you've seen for a mag?

I went to buy a USGI yesterday at the local gunshop - He wanted $39.95 for a NIW. I said thanks but no thanks. Of course his response 'thats the going rate - you better check your facts Mr.' LOL
