I think I asked this before,these are the colt mags with the dark green follover with serial number. they are in a foil wrapper.I have 4. 2
were opened. the mags wrapped in a moisture obsorbing foil/paper wrapper. what are these worth? also I have 6 more of the same mag 90-85% im also curious as to how much they are worth? I got thses from a buddy of mine who ets they have been in his garage for a while in a box collecting dust he told me to put them to good use. Im not going to sell all of them just a few to get my wife a birthday present.
Thanks in advance,

I'm surprised any [i]Vietnam era[/i] 30 round magazines survived. To my knowledge they were only produced at the same time the XM177E2 was in production, a short period circa 1967. The 20 round mags remained in production until the adoption of the M16A2 many years after Vietnam. -- Chuck

Well im not sure the ones in foil have a date of 1981. but I will go off Troys answer. they were sitting in my buddies garage he was cleaning house and we did a trade. he said he has had them for a while but he knew I could use them more than he could. FREE

Be carful if you're going to advertise these as new without opening the wrappers. I came a cross a *bunch* of these some time ago. As Troy previously stated, these are repacks. The wrappers were sealed and they had been sold to me as new mags. I opened them and was very disappointed to find mags that had been heavily used. A few were so used that I wonder why they even bothered to repack them. Sounds like you've got some good ones! Cody @ Magazine Specialties
