How Much Are They Worth?

Discussion in 'Caliber Corner' started by frankr, Mar 2, 2013.

  1. Was digging around in the back of my gun safe and found a 100 round Winchester White Box 40 S&W FMJ and a Glock 22Gen 4 magazine (15 round). Evidently they are left over from when I had a Glock 22. In today’s crazy market what do you think I can get for both?

    In my area it wouldnt last long for $75 all together.

    You could also put it up for trade for something you lack. When it comes to firearms and ammo I tend to trade off rather than sell, especially now when prices and availability are always uncertain. Luckily I am well stocked up on everything but its still nice to help people out becuase I actually feel bad for some of they guys who werent able to stock up.
     
  5. I’m not to bad off but could be better. I have a Glock 19 and Glock 26 both less than a year old with 4 magazine each plus 600 rounds of 9mm FMJ and 300 rounds of self defense JHP loads. Not sure if I want to hang onto the 100 round WWB 40 S&W and magazine or trade. I’ll take them to the next gun show in my area and see what I can get for them. I might be willing to trade for a couple of factory 9mm magazines.

    Sounds good. In my experience I usually get more out of trades anyway. It seems like when I sell something, all I get is low ball offers. Then when I want to buy something, everything is gouged.

    Just wait a few weeks - the prices will be even higher.

    That's about the same amounts of 9 FMJ's anf JHP's that I have. I think it's a very comfortable amount. I acn load everything in the truck in 5 minutes. I get how some guys like to stockpile 10k rounds. But my plan if the SHTF is evasion maneuvers. Think like a rabbit, and be ready to shoot your way out of the rabbit hole if need be. Defending a static structure doesn't really seem feasible these days. Just My Opinion. If I don't have room i my truck for it, I dont need it that bad. I'm more of a "pick your battles carefully, and pick your shots even more careful" kind of guy. My second cousin just passed away. I went to help his brother unload his basement. This guy had 10K rounds EACH of 10 ga., 12 ga., .223, .308, 762x39, 9mm, 45acp. It took me an hour and a half just to UNLOAD it. It was a little tough to moving unopened 1000 rd cases of stuff that I can't get my hands on. But like I said, I content w/ what I have for now.

    Yeah, not in my area. I just paid $1800 for an AR-15 that retails for $1300 because you just can't get anything.

    I have stripped lowers as well and I can't even get parts to build them up. All the online retailers are out with a 3+ month lead time. Awesome.

    I'm thinking I might open my own machine shop. I figure it can't take the ATF much more than 3 months to issue an FFL mfg license.

    Here's another data point for you. There's a shop in Loveland, CO that has both. Magazines, $30, ammo, $40. I saw magazines at the last Denver show for $99, needless to say the dealer took them home when it was time to pack it up.

    You'd be much better off trading the mag and ammo at a show than trying to sell it to a dealer there.

    In my area there is almost of a surplus of ARs. I even seen an updated advirtisement for a Bushmaster (carbon?) AR15 for $899.

    On the private market they are selling for $1000-$1200 and even brass cased ammo is starting to sell for around $.60 a round.

    The only thing in my area that is hard to get is 9mm and .22LR ammo. 9mm ammo goes for $.50-$60 a round and a 550 pack of any .22LR goes for $60.

    $60 for a brick of .22s? Wow.
     
  15. I’m glad I was able to get a good supply of 9mm both in FMJ and JHP before they became so scarce.

    A lot of smart shoppers do that. They stock up in times of plenty.
