Finnish Valmet mags were made in polymer green (earlier made with loop in front or "bottle-opener"). Later on mags used by Finnish army were same type, but polmer grey.

How much is either green or grey ones of quality. I tried to buy one on gunbroker for $31.00, but the reserve price was too high (it seemed), and it auto relisted. Valmet, like the Russian milled AK Saiga ak47s have always been top-notch.

Thoughts or info.?
Have you seen any at a gun shows lately?

The green ones are trial use mags. Some have the lanyard loop, most don't.
I recall they were sold in the US for appr. $30 each.

The black (not gray, they are pitch black) mags are the improved production mags, currently in use by the Finnish Army. They cost about 50 euros here in Finland.
