WTK - PRICE CHECK: Mint M-14 Magazines G.I. Marked

I have six of them, bought 20+ years ago. I will check them for

actual manufacturer markings, from the Vietnam era.

What price are they going for now?

Are there big price differences between manufacturers?

Thanks.

UPDATE:


I found the mags, here is what I have:

2 x BRW-SI (Borg Warner)

2 x BRW-SI (Borg Warner) - strangely, they are stamped upside down on spine?

1 x A KMT (Kileen Machine Tool Co.)

1 x HR-R (Harrington & Richardson)

1 5 rd M-1A Magazine (I had it refinished and the lug reattached/tig welded)
It looks like new now.

All are excellent + condition with only a few small scuffs (other than refinished 5 rd).

Well,

I don't know what Vietnam era are selling for but NIW USGI M-14 mags made by Checkmate can be had for under $30 a piece. Bought a bunch a few years ago.

44mag.com currently lists NIW USGI M14 mags (current manufacture) at $26.95 with free shipping.

To the average M1A/M14'er, older USGI mags may or may not command any higher price than newer USGI mags.

BRWs are the most common of the Vietnam era mags. Depending on condition, they usually go for more than the current CMIs. CMI is the current government contractor, and make very good mags. Thus older mags currently are not bringing much higher prices. If they are still wrapped/sealed, then more.
