I'm curious if anyone knows if any good deals can be found in the pawn shops and surplus stores in Killeen, mainly the ones just outside the gate of Ft. Hood.

Turns out i was wrong. I visited about a dozen pawn shops in Killeen and Harker Heights yesterday.
Saw ZERO ar-15's.
used SKS for $150.
Used mak 90 for $400.
Eygeptian Madii? ugly thumbhole stock for $350
Romanian ak-74 with draganov stock for $440
no Ruger 10-22's
plenty of sproterized Lee-Enfields and other cheap bolt guns
tons of worn out pump shotguns.

i guess it depends on what you are looking for. for me it was a big waist of time.

I bought used mags for $11 each at that Surplus Store on the hill outside the Clear Creek gate.

There is a surplus dealer in Killeen that is a member of this board. I forget his name, but once he offered to open up on Sunday, if I could drive there.

I'm really thinking of driving down there Saturday. Probably after going to Vorbek's to see what all he has.

Yes, it is a hole. I went there this afternoon. All the surplus shops, including the ones off 190 have magazines. The price varies, all are in good shape except the finish(they all have "character"}. The closer to the West gate(Rancier) the more expensive they are, the highest price was $15 for a 30 rd. I didn't see any 20 rd magazines.
I asked the shop owners, they get most of theirs from GIs selling them or trading them in their stores. A lot of LE or Military only mags too, clearly marked.
