    What's a (current) non-stupid price to pay for these?

    18.00 if you look around a little bit and are willing to wait a few weeks to a couple months

    I have some old GI aluminums and rather than pay stupid prices, I bought new springs from Wolff and followers. Plan to spend the cold winter nights opening the mags, scrubbing them, and installing new springs/followers to make 'em like new.

    If I didn't already have a sh!t ton of GI mags I would be willing to go about $30 a piece on them, that would be about tops for me. If you aren't in dire need and can't find a price you can stomach then I'd wait a while. They actually came down a bit in price after the dust settled during the last ban. I'd see them at the guns shows in the $20-$30 range regularly during the ban years. Pretty sure a lot of them were walking off military bases lol.

    I foresee them receiving a ton of orders from the PNW shortly... :thumbup:

    Strange that their 20 rounders cost more than the 30's and the 10's even more than both..

    30s are more glamorous, but I like to 20s when prone. i dont think the latter are produced anywhere near the same quantity as the 30s

    Look in the gear section I posted links to a few places that have mags. Will take 4-6 weeks but your looking at $14-19 + shipping

    $9 ea. That's what I paid last time (and it wasn't long ago, just a few weeks before the election). Figured this crap would happen again if the unwashed masses reelected HIM.

    I ordered from Kesselring's when they had them for 16.99--do most GI mags Teflon cota on the inside as well, because these do...

    Used GI Mags are worth $10 apiece to me. I don't need them. But if I wanted them, that's the price I would be willing to pay. I may have to wait a bit, but the prices are going to come back down...

    This is the way to go. Cost efficient and throw in some magpul followers you're making better than new mags.
