    Presume the shiny black magazine body, with a 1/95 date.
    The pre-89, parkerized (SMG) magazines are the more valuable.

    What is a value range of the pre-89 parked versions? I have 4 that at one time I determined were late 1960's to early 1980's, mix of civilian and maybe Air Force issues.
    My name is actually Scott and I really do live in Texas.

    I know, not very creative but it is factual.

    Colt brought out the first 9mm AR15 in 1985.

    All will be mid-1980's-early 1990's.
    32-round ($125.00-$150.00), and 20-round ($75.00-$100.00).

    These magazines were LE marked during the Clinton gun ban years.

    Yeah duh...shouldn't try to read this on my phone at stoplights.

    I was curious about some 20-rd AR15 / M16 mags I have....my bad.

    Massachusetts is still looking for pre '94 mags. Colt 9mm AR magazines were parked with a steel followers. After the ban was enacted, Colt switched to blued body with a plastic follower. They also marked the magazines Law Enforcement Only on the magazine bodies. I did find https://gunmagwarehouse.com/promag-a...k-col-a14.html which has a retail price of $20.99. The 20 round mags help when sighting in the carbine from the bench. Other than that, I don't see any big collector value for a post '94 9mm AR mag.

    Metalform 20rd magazines can be had for $29. Odds are that the 20rd magazines you have were made by Metalform. We'd need pictures to be sure. I'd think that Colt marked LEO only magazines would command a premium just because collectors might like one. If someone wants quantity, then they'd just buy the Metalforms.

    I have maybe 20. I am going to post them for $65 each here. They are LEO marked. Not significant, but some collectors may want one or two or twenty
