In case you don’t want to read the entire post:
Should I sell 2 Colt 20 round mags, and with the money buy 3,4, etc 20 rounders of equal reliability from another less ‘boutique’ manuf?

I have 2 20 round mags that came with my AR.

They have:
1.  “Cal 5.56, Colt’s MFG...” on the floorplate
2.  “Colt’s MFG, Hartford...” on the body
3.  “MFG 9-04” on the body
4.  They have black plastic followers.
5.  They are unfired.

I don’t keep things as collectable.

If they’re worth more to sell than shoot, I’ll sell them and buy more.  I've seen them advertised for $25, and non-Colt ones for $17.  Truth be told, for $8 per mag compared to paying for shipping/box/fuel/time - I'll just keep them.

If I’ve missed an earlier thread about this, feel free to point it out - I couldn’t find one.

Thanks.

$20 each

Probably get $22-$25 if you can sit on them for a few days.

I have two with the cast aluminum followers. I got them in a package deal a few years ago at a local gun store. I think I paid $25 for them and one 30-rounder. Just one of those serendipity deals one comes across every now and then.

I have seen them at gun shows as high as $50 a mag.

Nothing special, shoot them.

Remember, most of the components are interchangeable, so it may not be the original mag.

Well, they came with a new Colt AR, so I figure it's safe to assume they're stock.

Regardless, I'm gonna keep them and shoot them.

Thanks, guys.

I'd keep them. I love my 20 rounders for precision unsupported shooting. If nothing else, they make a great makeshift platform if there's a semi-flat surface around, something you can't do with curved 30's.

Only reason I even remembered I had them, was I'm thinking about hunting some critters.

They were just laying in a box of 30 rounders.
