We've all seen multiple questions about correct-capacity mags when the ban ends. Here's the flip side of that question: Will the price of 10-round mags go down? Nobody is really going to want them when they can get the correct mags for their firearms. I suspect that there will be a lot of these going on clearance within a few months, but I'm wondering what the rest of you think.

Guys, please remember us in the restricted states. We can still use those mags.

Yep, I imagine all the 10 rounders will get diverted to the states where the states have their own bans. I doubt the prices will drop at all for them, since it's that or nothing.

Aside from devirsion to the Occupied Territories, the only thing they will be good for is the practice range or the recycle bin.

Fortunately, I don't have a single one....

I don't see anything terribly wrong with the 10 round magazine in itself, just the law mandating them. If the price plummeted, I'd pick up a bunch of them to use at the range. They divide up a box of 50 rounds nicely, and are good for newbies who would just be wasting bullets after 10 rounds without some rest.

My understanding (which may be completely wrong) is that even post-ban we will still be regulated by other laws here in Kalifornia. So I have held-off on buying more 10rd (G23) mags as I would like to get 5 or so and figure the prices should drop a bit. I'm not expecting miracles but a few bucks saved here and there never hurts.

Some matches still limit the mag capacity for a shoot to 10rds, so I will hold on to a few of mine. Matter of fact, if they get cheap enough, I may buy a pile of them just to leave loaded for a SHTF scenario. Before too long, you may be able to get the 10 rounders for $5-8 each.

Yea, 5-8 bucks would be cool. For me though , if ya can't do it with 10, your not going to be able to do it with 15 or 20 or whatever. I guess in a match where you would need 16 rnds or whatever to shoot a stage then yup , I would have a couple . But for my Glock 21&30, 10 or so is all I need. Course I still carry a 5 shot SP101 too. Anyway,Take care.

Save them for the poor guys and gals in NJ !cannot have any more than fifteen rounds

sorry - I am sure this has been discussed somewhere here before.

OK - I have 3 Glock 19 FML (full metal lined) 15 round magazines that are damn near brand new. I paid $80 - $90 bucks each for them a couple years ago.

Here is my question: I can now buy then brand new for say $30. (Glock Source etc)

? Can I sell the (pre-ban) older mags to someone in California, NJ etc? I would sell them for whatever the cost is of the new mags to me...so say $30 bucks or whatever. I don't want to make a profit - Just want to pass them on if I can. They are really nice 15 rounders... seems silly to hold on to them in this situation?

Thanks for any feedback on this.

Yes, the newer mags will probably have a date stamp, or "restricted in communist states" blah blah blah, so preban mags will still be preban mags.

I got some Im still using them for range use, Hell i paid for them I'll use them,

They make a lovely paper weight.

My FFL was selling H&K 9mm 10 rounders for $7 today. I should have bought some even if I don't have a 9mm USP.

i hate the xd9 10rd mags. the springs are too stiff to load.
Link Posted: 9/15/2004 10:27:54 AM EDT
seems to me you could file/dremel the rails out of the glock mags and just add a new spring
