    sig p226 magazines I'm a newbie

    I have 4 sig brand 15 rnd magazines in original sealed plastic sleeves
    and 5 mec-gar 17 rnd magazines each in original bubble card, unopened

    for a sig p226 9mm

    I never bought the gun, so I don't need the clips

    I looked at the suggested link, and I'm having trouble understanding
    the difference between the clips I have and what's posted at that
    site.

    I don't expect to these things to be collector's items.
    These were the most common items on the gun store shelves
    when I bought them in the late 80s.

    I'm just wondering if someone would give me what I paid for them
    originally, if I were to offer them for sale

    I think the sigs were $50 and the mec-gars were $35

    I don't think anyone is knowingly willing to buy magazines at double or triple the going price over the price you paid. Unfortunately you can try, maybe you will find someone who does not know any better, but I would think not. Good luck.

    that's exactly the response I'm looking for.

    A reality check.

    I don't see any ads for the clips I have, so
    I have no idea what the current retail price is.


    Thanks.

    On both of the major gun auctions sites, when looking at “completed auctions” the factory mags are going for about $25 each. $30 will not bring a bid. Didn’t look up the Mec-Gar, I’ll leave that to you.

    I still have a some in plastic that I haven’t used.
    Of course I have a BUNCH of them.
    Love my 226. ;)

    I checked auction arms 'complete' listings.

    you are absolutely right.

    thanks.
