Awesome - Thanks! Guys need to get these even at this price - they seem to be harder and harder to find in decent shape. The ones I got from Rob Ski's site were BEAUTIES! Worth every penny.

shhhhhhhhhhh!!! Delete that link!!! the less people that know about armsofamerica the better. 80% of my surplus steel mags come from them. Best place on the web to pick up good surplus for reasonable prices. They get grade 1 and 2 romanian mags for $9.95 fairly decently. I just picked up 4 sets of the "4 polish mags with mag pouch and oiler for $49.99" 2 nights ago

I found 3 tankers and a Russian slabside in a barrel of mags for listed for $20 each at a LGS recently. I'll keep scrounging deals instead of paying that much.

$25-$30 here in the MP when they show up. $35 each + shipping is a bit much IMO.
$27 or $28 shipped would be a pretty good deal, but there are folks that wouldn't even pay that for them. Hell, nobody wants to spend $35 for surplus AK 74 mags even. It is what it is.

Same only Magpul/Tapco I have came with rifle would never purchase with my own money. These tankers are great, everyone needs at least one.

Well we won’t be finding any Romy 20 rounders for our Dracos, so these are as close as we can get.

Pretty sure there are still several AIMR mags for sale on The AK Forum if you really wanted one/some. Of course, they are not $30. IIRC, $130 for non-functional to $180 for excellent. (Almost thankful I only paid $150.)

I have 8 that I got for my Yugo Underfolder. I should probable get some more and put them back just because. I actually like them better than the 30’s.

You could just make your own, I’ve converted several 30 rounders to 20 with just a little patience. It’s worth the effort if you have a ton of 30’s like I do.

Agreed. I think last (10) waffle I bought was $35 at a local fun show.

Unissued mags will always command a higher price...but not from me. Patience....

Tankers. The only mag that goes up in price but supply doesn’t deminish.
These use to be $8 a pop. Still easy to get, now $35.

there’s was dozen on the MP wihin hr last 24 hours for $25.

Bought a bunch from AOA about 18 months ago for $12 a piece. Amazing what’s going on with them...

Yeah, it is what it is. I wasn't excited about a $150 mag either, but I figured if I wanted an AIMR mag, better sooner than later. It's almost certain they'll never get cheaper.
