Showing $11.99 for me?

When do they normally go on sale?

Apparently they raised the price now, either due to the so called panic or maybe just went off sale?

looks like they raised prices. They've been $9.99 for over a year.

I hate it when retailers like AOA put the screws to customers by taking advantage of a tragedy.

Crying shame they raised the price $2.

yup, they were in really nice shape. I had a few with teensy bits of surface rust, but all in otherwise magnificent shape. I'm kinda glad that they went back up in price, otherwise I'd be tempted to waste more money and buy more

I see they separated them. Now there is grade 2 mags for $11.99 and grade 3 for $8.99. Hmm wonder if there is much difference between the two so called grades?

they've had the grade 3 for a while, they were just out of stock. The last batch sold out about 3 weeks ago. They're pretty rusty. they WERE $6.95, but $8.99 is not that big a deal. They came pretty rusty and would need some work to strip and re paint them. At that price I'd just rather get the new Zastava mags at Apex for $8.99... worst thing you would have to do to those is file that back lug a bit vs. a full on soak in cola and re-paint.

I don't want any more work. If I buy anymore I will step up and pay the $11.99 then for the grade 2 romys.

got the Hungarians over at What A Country, they were11.95 each. Mine had no rust, one was scuffed from sitting in a stack in a box . All were free of cosmoline, a bit dusty, and a good feeling texture on the paint. Looks like they were used a bit for training, great shape. Got 3 NEW Yugo from SG Ammo, cosmolined, blued steel. Beauties, I love the look of blued metal. 59.95 for 3. Buy once cry once. I have two Romanians in a Leather Parade pouch, they are new, well made. really good paint job. My impression is that the Romanians did not issue as many as other bloc nations. Still warehouses of these overseas I will bet. New production from Croatia, and Yugoslavia are well made and finished. Have one. Like the Surplus Commie Bloc better is all. Fun to get as many countries as you can.

Yeah... I bought like 20 for $6.95 a piece. I'm happy with the mags I got but there's no way in hell I would pay more than 8 for a mag in that shape. You can routinely find mags in like new shape for like $10-12 a piece.

Ok so if they sell out then come back but at a different price is it maybe possible the place they get them from raised the price on them? You do understand they're not making the mags right?

Unless you meant the new mags. You can find them in the mp pretty easily for 10-12 shipped.

When the price almost doubles over a short time that's "price gouging".
I have bought from AOA before but after seeing this. Nope.
As far as not making anymore that has no relevance as these are not fucking collector magazines and were mass produced.

AIM just sold a batch of surplus minty Yugos for $9.95 a pop NOT some shitty Romy grade 3 rusty/dented magazines for $10.99. Look at wormraper's post as he stated the short time AOA price fluctuations.
