    Is it just me, or does 200 bucks seem a bit high? Am I missing something?

    Well, it is a 30 rd factory Ruger mag. That's gotta be fairly rare.

    It says it's a 10 round model 30...
    Not a 30 rounder.

    Not sure which the bigger fool is..

    the guy that's bidding $100, or the guy that has it listed and won't let it go at that price (reserve not met) :neener:

    As as for "the idiots that run e-bay"...when you're worth a few billion, you can call them all the idiots you want. What you make in a lifetime would pay their taxes for a month

    he is selling a pre-1994 factory Ruger 30 round magazine. anyone who has a Mini-14 knows that the only two mags to buy are Precision or factory Ruger if you want them to cycle correctly.

    Ruger LE marked 30 rounders are about $50. i had 27 of them i sold at $50 each without question in Sept 1994 right after the ban.

    he is targeting a market where there is a state law banning the post-94 magazines, such as California.

    the big issue is that some of these states prohibit importation of additional "pre-94" magazines into the state..such as California. so the buyer is commiting a crime for the importation. however once the magazine is already in-state it's very difficult to figure out when it was imported.

    so by this rationale (I hesitate to use the word 'logic') Sam Walton was smarter than Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr or Enrico Fermi.

    Ruger is kissing up to the gun grabbers by not selling 20 or 30 round mags to civilians. They are afraid that the Mini 14 and 30 will be labeled "Assault Rifles" and that banning them will seriously hurt their business.

    Ruger factory mags are exceedingly rare, and often do fetch $100 each. I figure they are looking out for themselves in the short term.

    Sam Walton was as much a genius as any of those others you have listed there. Einstein, Bohr, and Fermi built on an impressive amount of knowledge from many other great minds to introduce incredible theories into their fields. Sam Walton did the same thing, just in a different field. His genius was in getting people to open their pocketbooks, not understand quantum physics. Smart is a relative term, I think what you are looking for is intelligence.

    I bet someone would really be pissed if they get the magazine, and it has a plug welded onto the follower that allows ONLY 10 rounds to be loaded... :D ...just as advertised.

    If he gets 200 for that sucker I have 5 30 round preban mini 30 mags that will be on ebay next. I added the auction to my watch list.

    Whoops, just realized the auction was over and he did not relist. Bummer.

    dude, you're missing the point. It wasn't Einstein that called the guy an idiot. It was a THR member. I sincerely doubt that he's in the same league as those you mentioned.

    In my long and storied life, I have found that, the more intelligent someone is, the less likely they are to call someone else an idiot.

    I had a cousin-in-law that always used to call his boss/owner an idiot and go on and on at great lengths about all the stupid things he did. Funny, the boss was a multi-millionaire and the cousin-in-law didn't have two nickles to rub together.
