    I dunno...I don't see egyptian mags for sale very often. How much do they usually go for? In my humble opinion - It's kind of a rare varient.

    I guess there are people who collect mags just for the hell of it. I agree they're rare--but I would find a Russian more desirable, even if it's more common. Only way I would go out of my way to buy an Egyptian would be if I had a pre-ban Maadi. It will be interesting to see what price it sells at, if at all. I may just sell mine . . .

    Fury_58,

    You want to sell it or trade it? Let me know - I don't have one yet (or can't remember if I do).

    Yes, I am willing to sell it. I got one (unmarked) in the SG mag lottery. I will send you a PM shortly.

    Did you buy it? Nice buy if you did. Maybe a little high on price.

    No. Like I said, Egyptian mags are cool, but not $40 cool. Apparently somebody thought it was, and it sold pretty quickly. Maybe the price isn't that far off.

    Many years ago, a side marked "Made In Egypt" mag in mint condition would fetch $75 to $100 in a blink of an eye.

    Now, I would say that a mint example one would be priced at $50 and most of the ones that are apart of the SG deal would go for $15 to $25, depending on condition.

    This one that was refinished was a little too much. If it had been original finish, it would have been about right.

    Well I did get a unissued one from the SG mag deal. not a scratch on it. I thought it was a little special but would not have guessed they'd go that high on price.
