In 1971 ibought a Colt SP-1 and got some 30 rd magazines with the Colt part # 62667 on the body and 62665A on the dark green follower with Colt floor plates marked Cal 5.56mm. I looked at the FAQ section which was updated in 2006 and it said they were collecter valued at about $45. I was told these magazines were made by Colt before Colt subcontracted magazine production to OKay . Could someone tell me some updated history about these magazines and approximate value today? Thanks.

Pre ban mags also tend to be worth more because certain states state that you can only own pre ban mags, therefore there people will pay a premium for them. As far as collectors who knows.
