And definitely don't mess with that Colt!

BCM sells black teflon coated mags if you want a dark finish. About $10...
Yeah i agree with quentin, they look kinda cool all scratched up. It adds character, kinda like bullet holes in a truck tailgate...lol

Its not like you gotta worry about rust on aluminum mags anyways cause aluminum wont rust.

The Colt 20's will bring a premium over most other manufacturers even though some of the others (Adventureline, Universal, Simmonds) are more scarce.

Gotta pay for the pretty pony.

SO were they worth buying @ $20 each to turn and make a few bucks on or are they worth just what he has on them already ?

$20 a pop is too much unless you're desperate for Colt for some unknown reason.

You will notice the older VN era mags have metal alloy followers.
They are my favorite AR mags but $20 is too high...even for Colt unless they are new in wrap and 50 years old.

Here are some modern 20's that are excellent, made by NHMTG.
This is the best price I've ever found for these.

Yeah you might try to talk him down, $20 is a little much but I bet he gets that if he hangs on to them. Lots of people, including me, want Colt mags. I got five Colt 20rd and a couple 30rd mags on AR15.com's EE. $12 and $15 each, respectively, which was an ok price considering they were in great shape.
