Fair price for these magazines?

Please, not asking for bids/offers here.

I feel comfortable buying or selling between the former prices and the crazy high prices. For instance. I did buy a certain pistol magazine for $35 before the craze. Now they are going for $100. I'd be a buyer at $60-70.

So what would a fair price for buyer and seller be for:

BX-25 magazines? $50-$75?
PMag? $30?
PMag Gen 3? $40?

Is trading a good idea? Most of us who arent fully stocked or scrambling are heavy in some categories light in others. Would be nice if we could all trade straight across without money getting involved.

Please don't look at me like I'm trying to "get over". I sold something recently at a gunshow for a couple hundred less than I could have got but didn't want to take the extra time and just didn't feel comfortable selling it for me.

I'm not some do gooder, not sure if its a Karma thing or what. I've done the same with used cars. Honestly part of it is just wanting to move what I'm selling but at the same time I am happy when I feel a good/fair deal was made on both sides.

Dunno, but I have some mini-30 mags posted for trade for a couple days, couple bites but not much more than that.

I would think somewhere between base price and CTD price would be fair.

I really dig the trade thoughts.

I think mini30 mags are going for around $100 each!

Trading would be a great idea - if you know someone who is in need of something you have, and has something to offer that you need, that works for everyone.

If you're looking to help someone out and have mags to spare, someone who genuinely needs a PMAG (i.e. is actually going to use it and isn't just going to turn around and sell it at an inflated price to make a quick buck), I'd say sell it to them for the pre-insanity price (~$10 to $20).

I did that with some 9mm ammo recently. He needed the ammo more than I needed it.

Nice - I'm sure they appreciated that. :)

I may post some ads locally for trade. I guess it would be easier to put it all on gunbroker and let the market decide. Would rather someone who has an AR and needs the mags have it than a guy with 100s of mags.
