    Since I have not seen any lately wondering what market price is? Found forgotten box today while reorganizing gun room with over thirty 30 round mags and six 75 round drum mags. All new in plastic and cosmoline. Also had six 20 round SKS box magazines to replace standard 10 round versions so gun just like factory configuration but holds double. Probably 500 stripper clips. Please don't innodate me with offers. Just wondering if enough value at current market to buy glass for my .338 Lapua mag.

    At least $30 for each 30 round mag, at least $75 for each drum and possibly $75 for each SKS "Red Star" 20 round SKS mag. The stripper clips aren't that valuable yet.

    Call it roughly $900, $450 and $450. To optimize your value I'd trade for the scope with a dealer who might resale the mags since they're harder to get than the scope.

    Since looking at the 2,000 dollar mark for glass on the new tactical rifle that is a perfect idea. Not interested in trying to sell a few at a time to whomever. Thank you for the reply. I mostly hang out in the reloading section so hope I posted in correct area of this BBS. Luckily I have plenty others to fees my Combloc guns and figured since these all new with stickers & cosmoline be more attractive to someone.

    I bought two 5.45 magazines a week ago for 15 bucks each.

    You bought 30 AK mags just to put in a room and forget about?

    Naw, put them I'm a box, then in the gunroom and forgot. While I own Combloc weapons, I very seldom shoot them. Normally I shoot my M1a's as first choice. My national match and super match too much fun. Rest of time with military rifles are FN's, HK's or AR's. I bought this box of mags on a day where much money was spent and they got lost on bottom shelf. Guy actually threw them in on a deal where I bout ten 1,200 round cases of 5.56 ss109 NATO ammo. He was cleaning out his warehouse and think I paid 100 bucks for the entire lot of magazines. Also purchased a Springfield SAR-48 so you can imagine once I got all that stupid AR-15 ammo unloaded what I wanted to do. Bust caps with the new Springfield. I find stuff all the time forgot about. Crap, I found a 1948 Harley Davidson in the corner of my warehouse once that had been forgotten. Too many stinking hobbies.
