Question Keep or Sell Rebuild Kits

I got a gun for Christmas that came with 3 17 round rebuild kits. I have been able to get some factory 10 round magazines for $25 each plus shipping.

I could probably get $50 each on GB for them; that's $150. That money would buy me 6 more 10 round magazines.

BTW, shipping is only $10 no matter how many magazines I order.

Should I sell the kits and buy magazines or keep the kits in case the magazine laws get changed in CA?

If the laws change you can just buy complete mags then. Otherwise what good are rebuild kits right now if you're not rebuilding mags you already owned pre-2000?

If it's easier to buy new 10 rounders than to retrofit to 10 rounds (and possibly destroy the value of) these rebuild kits, it would make sense to sell them for today's market price.

Yes, sell them.

If they're for G34 or 35 pm me, and give me a little better price?

Never sell: Ammo, rebuild kits or anything related to AR Platform Rifles.

My rules and my opinion.

If you're fortunate to have the 17 rnders then keep them. Money is liquid, mags are an investment. Just wait and see what happens with this years ****storm of gun laws.

I voted to keep them. If the high capacity magazine ban passes, you'll never be able to buy rebuild kits again. Just buy some 10 rounders for the range and keep the rebuild kits in case the need to use high capacity magazines ever arises. I doubt magazine laws will ever change in Commiefornia

Sell them, but know that you might not fetch that high of a price. I sold OEM Beretta rebuilds on GB last week and only fetched ~$23 per mag. Though my USP 12 round rebuild got 55$.

Keep them. You will likely be glad you did.

Pick up 10s when you can and extra springs.

or block them to 7 rounds and beat the rush.

Keep them, if you sell them you will regret it later. Besides no one knows what is going to happen.

Not to sound ignorant , but would someone please tell me the difference between a Beretta 92 magazine in parts and the whole 92 series 15 round magazine.

This whole magazine kit business is a becoming a little weird. Or maybe I am really missing something.

Keep them. The panic is easing and magazines aren't bringing more per weight than gold ingots at this point.

Well after several hours of thinking about it and some good advice I've decided to keep them.

Thanks for the input.

Keep the mags! If you ever have to sell it for some reason, no one who lives in a free state wants a neutered gun or magazine...

Not trying to drum up business.


I doubt anyone else in CA has this gun. And the ones that have the one that this is a clone of don't seem to care that I have this gun.
