What to do with my AR mags?

    I've got 37 30rd AR mags that I've cleaned and repainted w/ Krylon flat black. Also replaced the springs and followers as necessary. Anyhow, I'm considering selling them on arfcom right now for $10/ea (seems to be the going rate for used, non-teflon USGI mags) and funding a 25-30rd magpul purchase once they become available.

    Funny thing is, I paid $6-7 for each of these two years ago...Better investment than my 401(k) :bowrofl:

    Especially for the pre-bans but I would've felt like a gouging piece of shit getting more for these than I'll be paying for pmags.

    I wish I did so well. I bought some cproducts stainless mags a few years back when the cproducts guy said "oh guys we're about to have a price increase, we'll never be able to sell these mags at this price again." I paid $16 each. Oddly enough since then pmags have come out on the market and cproducts has found a way to not only reverse their price increase but sell them for $13 each.
