Buyer Tip: If you're the
High Bidder in an auction when it closes, don't assume you're the final High Bidder.
Someone could outbid you in the final seconds of the auction if your Max Bid isn't
high enough. You're not the high Bidder until you've been notified by email that
you are. All Auctions are conducted in Pacific Time.
Here is a Herd of Parkerized, GI issue, 20 round Military 7.26 Nato (.308) caliber M14 magazines - 1 naked, 1 in a plastic bag, one dressed in a somewhat beat up GI packing dated 1954 and 1 left in a taped up inner pack - all 4 for one money. The detail photos are obviously of the naked magazine which looks relatively unused.
We had a question about the vintage of these magazines and whether or not they were "Pre-Ban". After careful inspection we have concluded that the first three are original, GI issue, 20 round M1-A1 and/or M14 magazines. While the two in paper wrap are confirmed original, Pre-Ban, military issue, the third one (naked) is thought to be Pre-Ban in spite of the absence of a Manufacturer's stamp on the rear of the magazine based on the location and proximity of the spot welds on the case. The forth (the one in the plastic bag) is stamped "CMI" which is the brand stamp for Check-Mate Industries in Wyandanch , N.Y. Formed in 1972, Check-Mate Industries is a complete Tool & Die, Stampings and Assemblies manufacturer and is currently the largest (M1A) M14 magazine manufacturer for the United States Military. CMI obtained their initial M14 military contract in the late 80's but didn't stamp their "brand" on their magazines until the late 90's which reveals that the forth magazine was indeed made after 1994. Hence, we have good reason to believe that while the first three of these magazines can be regarded as Pre-Ban vintage the forth is really Post-Ban.
BEFORE YOU ASK WHAT THE SHIPPING COST IS, PLEASE READ THE NOTE ON PAYMENT & SHIPPING AT THE END OF THE AUCTION.
BEFORE YOU ASK WHAT THE RESERVE IS, PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING…
We do not disclose the Reserve on our “RESERVE AUCTIONS” because doing so defeats the purpose of the auction. Disclosing makes it a “Sale”, not an auction, much like a classified listing. Most of the firearms we offer at auction are on consignment with us from one of our clients. Our commitment to our clients is to obtain the highest fair market price possible for their firearms. Thus, we prefer the Reserve Auction and the “HAGGLE” feature offered by Auction Arms. About 50% of our sales are completed via the Haggle. In a Reserve auction if the high bidder does not reach the reserve buy to end the auction the high bidder or the seller may institute what Auction Arms calls a Haggle a one-on-one exchange between buyer and seller to try and come to a mutual agreement on a price. If you are not familiar with the Haggle process, click on Auction Arms “Help & Info” for complete details. For those items that are not on consignment we usually offer a convenient “Buy-It-Now” price.
