    I have a few metal 30 rounders that I don't use, and I'm thinking about trying to sell/trade them at the gun show this weekend. All three look similar with black followers. One is Labelle, one Parsons Precision, and one Sanchez Ent on the floorplate.

    What should I ask for them? $10 each, 3 for $25? Trade 3 for 2 PMAGs?

    If any of those are preban 9sounds like all of them are), you could sell them to a abn state for $10 each. Non ban ones, I'd say about $5, no more than $7,

    How can I determine if they're pre-ban? They don't appear to have date stamps. Would I be better of listing them online than trying to hock them at the local show?

    I bought brand new milspec (LaBelle) mags with the enhanced follower for $8 apiece from BCM.

    I would keep them as you can never have too many mags.

    Dude, keep them. They're good mags. Just because they don't say Magpul on the side doesn't make them any less useful.

    It just keeps getting better, don't it?
    Keep them. What are you going to do with $15 or even $30 if you find a sucker? Blow it all on a happy meal or supersize your Big Mac combo? The little money you get is way offset by the utility of extra magazines.

    New 30 rounders, even in CA, to those of us who can buy them, are under $10 each for steel C-mags. I bought a whole bunch for $8 last year, brand new in wrappers. Brand new Pmags can be had for $12.

    There won't be any date stamps on the mag body. Sell tehm for $10 apeice to a abn sater. You'll be helping out another gun owner, plus for $30, you can buy 4 or 5 new mags.

    I have lots of aluminum mags I'd like to get rid of but they are not worth anything right now. I've seen new ones as low as $6.50 so I'd be lucky to get five bucks each out of mine. Might as well keep them.

    Sell to someone in a ban state for about $10, or keep them. W/ new mags going for under $7 from time to time; I wouldn't give anything for them.

    Keep them.
    1. You can never have to many mags.
    2. Right now, the market is flooded with all things AR related. Not a good time to sell.

    Local shop has 2003 - 2005 dated Colt mags in VG shape for $4.95. Even the undated prebans are hard to get more than $8 each for, likely better to just keep them.

    Yea, I'll just stick 'em in the closet for that kind of money.
