Buddies offering me 25 of these things brand new, but bulk box so rattling scratches. He wants me to take some off how much he's paying me. So whats fair in this market? How hard is it going to be to offload 10 of them? I have a use for 10... not 25

lolz sell em to you for $70 including shipping. I'll even give em a kiss before I ship em.

just got em for $20 a pop. Put 5 on gunbroker and see what happens.

I needed 10. By $20 I mean he paid me $20 less per mag for what i was a selling.

You could sell them for 15-20 here no problem. I'd certainly buy a few of them off you at that price point.


Edit: or 25-30 will get you sales most places.

I think the Colt mags have always cost more than most GI contract mags. I may be wrong, but I think they were around $20 when other brands were $10.

they were. I don't feel like ripping people here off, so gunbroker I go,.01 and no reserve. I'm feeling lucky come on some more missquoted or terrible feinstein quote please in the next 24 hours.

If i don't get $30 a pop on gunbroker I'll bring the other 10 over here I suppose for25 in this market sounds fair.
