    I was just wondering if down the road, after regular mags are banned and all we have left are the pre-2014 mags in circulation; will "new in unopened packaging" mags be worth a premium over "like new, no packaging".

    Will pmags be the gun nerd version of star wars collectables.

    "Yeah, I have a bunch of pmags, but I don't want to open the package and use one, that will ruin it's value."

    (I personally have no still-in-wrapper mags)

    I think new in wrapper mags would have a higher value, but the used good condition mags would still be close in value, unless they were used in the military and showed heavy use. Even then they would still have good value.

    Well here in Communist territory "hi cap" mags are allowed if they are pre 94' AND OWNED BY THE ORIGINAL PURCHASER. It is illegal to sell a "pre-ban" mag or to include it with the sale of a firearm in Kali. Owners of "Pre-Ban" mags can buy "Hi-Cap" kits to repair broken or damaged "Hi-Cap" mags but can not buy new ones or sell their old ones in Kali.

    I'm really afraid that is what is coming to the U.S. next year.

    I have 4 unopened PMAGs. No way in heck I'm opening them for now unless Red Dawn starts.

    Except it is a completely toothless law, it only prevents the retail sales of mags. Possession and use are A-OK, it's only the manufacture that is illegal. They have to prove when it was manufactured/assembed, and there is a statute of limitations.
