    I have noticed lately that the market seems to have stabilized and that things are not selling for ridiculous prices anymore. I have been trying to get rid of some of my magazines and came across some really odd stuff.

    I sold some US GI surplus mags with green followers for about $15 a pop, a fair deal. I looked around online and I noticed that 20 round mags are going for $25 and that for some reason the Bushmaster 10 round mags are going anywhere from $30-40 a magazine. Why is that? Why are the ten rounders more valuable than a 30 or 20 round magazine?

    Because not everyone can have more than 10 rounds and many people feel the 30 rounders stick out too low. Idk

    10 rounders? Supply and demand. The people that are now restricted to ten rounders need them.

    I think I've got 4 (new in bag) TangoDown Arc mags...higher end mags(Pmag/Lancer level) that I ordered by mistake. They're 10rd mags in the full profile 30rd frame. If some of those folks you speak of are out there, I'll send all four to them for $75...total...and won't worry about eating $15 or so in the process.

    Otherwise, they'll sit around in plastic or perhaps become mag change/training fodder.

    I'd probably get more than that if I'd just get a little motivation and post them on EBay, lol.
