74 mags fluctuate a great deal in price. When I bought my rifle some years ago, they were $6.00 each, a year later, $36.00+. There were a bunch that came in about 2 years ago, $9.00 each. Now they are 14..16.00 each.
I started w/ 6- 30 round, bought another 15. I also was looking for a 5 round mag for hunting Woodchucks, coyotes, etc. I found that the 5 round .223 mag had the same follower as the 30round. They only hold 4 rounds instead of 5, but they function 100%. Surplus are getting thin, but Tapco and others make mags.
Freedom is not free. The best of us always leave too soon.
