    No;Q

    He is selling a steel 30 round $30 crap magazine as a pre-ban Glock 17 magazine.

    You fell for it.;Q

    You can buy these steel junk magazine anywhere and they jam like crazy plus wear down on the plastic release.

    Look again.

    Glockboy's right... ;i the price is up to $76... they either don't have a clue how much a 30 round mag is worth or they can't read.

    This reminds me of the Playstation 2 rip offs on eBay.

    They only had a photo of a PS2 box and even listed it as such but the bids were still in the $300 range.;Q

    PT Barnum said "there is a sucker born every minute".

    Not that I would ever advise of it or do it or anything, but I wonder if there is a way in a situation like this for the purchaser to get their money back or anything because it wasn't exactly what the seller was selling. But then again I guess that is why the buyer should always beware and also should ask questions before bidding. :) Find out exactly what it is thats being bid on. Hehe. I know some sellers have gotten mad at me cause I do want to know exactly what it is before I bid. Just don't want/need to be a sucker. :) ;I

    I wound up with a pair of Pro mag mags back in 99. I forget how the add was written but it LOOKED like Glock mags and the factory word was used. When I got the mag I looked at the printout I did of auction. It didn't say GLOCK FACTORY MAG but something that lead me to think it was.
