Those are worth a small fortune, did you get a good deal on them?

On retail side 1500-2000 bucks since they are niw. Good find!

$7.00 each when i bought mine NIW.

WOW what a find. You really struck gold there. I would be VERY interested in buying a few if you would like to get rid a couple.

Congradulations and let me know

You ruined all the value by opening the box. Better send them to me for proper disposal.


I remember seeing boxes of those like that pre '94 AWB for $3 to $5 bucks each. As a young family man I could only afford a couple at a time.

Great find. How much did you pay for them ?

Before the market got flooded with mags they would have brought more. Now new in wrap $20.00 each on a good day maybe $25.00 each if you pieced them out. Less as a lot

Very nice

Open a few up, they could be rusted as heck inside that paper. Seen a lot of them "in the wrap" and in crappy condition.

Sticky and greasy but no rust, just a nice bright blue finish.

Looking to sell any of them? If so, give me a PM.

Nice score.

Not looking to get rid of any, just a little show & tell and looking for a value. The last time I bought NIW carbine magazines they were .75 cents each and in a foil wrap. Being young and broke I only bought a dozen back then

Now I'll be looking for a couple more rifles to justify all the new magazines

Prepare to be shocked at how THOSE have gone up.

$15.00-$20.00 apiece. I can buy very nice but used one's all day long at the shows for around $10-12.00 if I look around.

You could go $25.00 if you sold them and in some states they would probably sell fine, it all depends on how many carbines are in the area and how many people want mags for them.

Should be able to get $20 ea selling on the net but it may take time.

$3 a piece is an excellent deal for NIW mags they havn't been that cheap in $15 yrs.
