    There is a guy in Gun Parts & Accessories selling Orange mag for 90.00 each or 170.00 for both. He list them as RARE orange mags. If you're going to sell the GSSF mags do us a favor and don't start off with a load of BS. The mags are a benefit that we currently enjoy until they're gone or Chris gets pissed. This guy probably thinks dealers are ripping him off! :(

    I just saw the same add and it really struck me the wrong way. I had to constrain myself to keep from posting about his B.S. but instead I e-mailed Rusty and asked him to straighten it out. If he doesn't I will. This is pure B.S. to be trying to pull on fellow G/T'ers who have not yet made it to a match. They were at the Dallas match for $55 each and I bought some last year at one of the matches for $45 each. POTENTIAL BUYERS BE WARE :( :( :(

    I believe they were selling in Roseburg for $50.00 each.

    GSSF has the mags at each match. As long as they last you should find them at each GSSF match. Typically Glock lets their dealer sell the mags at the match and they tack on the additional cost over and above the 40.00. Look for them at Topton this year.

    All that was left at Waldorf: G20 & G23 orange mags.

    GSSF has been selling these mags since the October 1999 Conyers match.

    They are pre-ban high capacity magazines.

    Thanks again Fireglock...

    I also saw that post about the orange mags, twice now...once in the Firearms For Sale and then in the Assessories sections.

    I expressed concerns about the B.S. also and I'm glad to see you following up on this also. I thought I was the only "freak" bothered by the "rare orange hi caps mags" statements.

    Knowledge is Wisdom...we follow this GT site and believe a lot of it, until we see misrepresentations like this. It's important that we police it ourselves, and keep accurate information flowing.

    Thanks, I hope to meet you sometime, maybe at a GSSF match. I shot @ Richmond and Waldorf this year.

    I was at Richmond on Saturday. I was the largish fellow with the Team Sidearmor hat and shirt. Richmond was very good to me! ;f I'll be at Statesville, Conyers and Anderson this year and maybe more.

    I agree one should not misrepresent the condition or rarity. But, I have no problem with someone buying whatever they can for whatever amount and reselling them for a profit.
    That is the American way isn't it? Do you think those mags cost Mr. Glock even $40 to make?

    Look out people, there's another one selling RARE collectable Orange magazines. This one wants more than the first clown.

    Would any of you willing to part with one of these
    orange mags? I just joined GSSF last week and found
    out that I just missed the match in Roseburg,Oregon.
    It's going to be a 1000 mile round trip to the next match
    in Richmond,CA and I'd rather not drive that far for
    an orange G17/G19 mag...Thanks!
    :) ;a :)

    I don't think there are any G17/19 orange mags left. All that seem to get mentioned are the G20 and G23. I've seen one at a gun show, and it was over $100.
