Portland Oregon - Expo center gun show

I saw a table with magazines for the Beretta 92 / M-9, original Military issue in the issue paper foil bags selling for ten dollars each.

It made me wonder a bit.

    Maybe they fell off a truck in a far off desert land.

    TEN DOLLARS FOR A BERETTA 92 MAG!!! That's twice as much as the gun's worth!!:wink:

    Aren't the GI 92 mags a total smoking turd? The ones that they told the troops to not load fully so that they would function? IIRC, REAL Bupretta mags are prized possessions in the sand box. The low bidder mags, not so much.

    Pretty much. Sounds like the mags in question are 2-3 times their actual worth. If I remember correctly, the GI mags have an anti-friction coating on the insides or springs that rubs off, and ties up the mags.
    Overkill is underrated.

    Wiedeners had the Berretta made mags listed for 15.00 this weekend so the aftermarket ones going for ten is not so suprising.

    They are Military issue in NATO wrappings, this was for those that might need or want them.

    Caveat Emptor.

    Wrapping junk mags in that kinda VCI paper is an old trick. Back during the AWB , cheap import M-14 and M-16 mags were wrapped up in VCI paper and sold as USGI for high prices. Real mags will be marked with a FSN and CAGE code.

    The CMI mags were the bad ones. Stick with Beretta made mags or Mec Gar mags.

    i saw the same mags and was wondering the same. i would have got some if i didnt have enough b92 mags already. at least got a few to try.

    also, iirc, they were parkerized finished, or at least the ones in the open packages were.

    I would have stuck with the sealed bags if I had needed any.
