I was at a gunshow today and I was mainly looking for any cheap Glock and/or AR mags. At one table he had some G19 15rd mags for about $20 (I was looking for a better deal, but this was normal) and then there was this one mag, I think it was also a 15rd, for $85!!! On the sticker it said something like "Very rare, serial # 27xxx".

Anyone know what this would be and why it was priced so high?

Just curious.....the $20 mag was too much for me so I'm not interested in buying it. I'm just wondering what's up cause I've never seen anything like it.

Yeah, I figured that much. But I wouldn't be surprised to see maybe $25 or heck, even $30 on a 15rd G19 mag. But $85?!?!?!

Duh.

It's for a Glock 7! You know what that is? It's a porcelain gun made in Germany. It dosen't show up on airport X-ray machines, and it costs more than you make in a month.

wait till you see the pre band ( yes that's BAND) guns going for 3x their actual value.

Well, it looks like there is no somewhat reasonable reason for that guy to be selling it for $85. I figured it was at least partially a gimmick, but I thought maybe there was something special about it.

I'm actually tempted to go back there today and ask him about it and see what he says.

Man, I know people have the right to put whatever price they want on it, but I just hope nobody gets suckered into buying it.

I really don't see the "pre-ban" stuff around here too much, but it makes sense if that is what he was trying to say.

He probably paid $50 for it 10 years ago during the ban----and refuses to accept that he lost money in this one instance (but yet probably made a bunch on the 50 he did sell for $85).
I've seen alot of "holdover items" from the ban that guys took a hit on at the shows--but refuse to bring the prices down to current trends---dumbasses.

I never knew a magazines to have a serial number anyway.

You should go back, look at the price and hysterically laugh out loud while pointing at him. Keep doing it until they escort you out of the place.

Yeah, my thoughts exactly on the serial number part.

I really wish I would have asked him what was so special about that mag. I was there right after the doors opened and people were still setting up. He wasn't right there by the case it was in so I just kept walking.

I'll look next month....I'm sure it will still be there, and I'll ask him then.

A fool and his money soon part. No sympathy for the lazy and stupid getting bilked.
