I have a friend selling an original 68 classic automag for $70. I was just wondering if its worth this, or more? Should i take this offer up or say no? Im new to mags, and dont really know how reliable or easy to service they are. Any feed back would help a bunch. Thanks

Sounds about good, depending on condition and such. They usually go for around $100.

A picture or list of features/condition would help. But generally speaking $70 is a good price.

I got mine for $50 and felt really lucky. It was an old school back bottle version that was entirely stock and needed all new o-rings.

I would get pics, but seeing as I dont have the marker, I cant get any.
Right now he is going to sell for $50, but has several offers. he just knows i am not willing to spend more the $70, so thats why i said $70.
But thanks for the help

Depending on how nasty it is, it takes between 5 and 15 minutes to fully refurbish an Automag. I once refurbished an old valve I'd just bought in 5 minutes in the staging area. That valve was clean inside, though. I did a thorough cleaning and degreasing on one and it took about 15 minutes.

I'd say go for it. Even if it is bone stock it's not a bad price.

Mags are the epitome of reliable. There are mags out there that are 15 years old or more that still run just as well as they did the day they were made, and sometimes better. For 70 bucks if there's nothing structurally wrong with it, it's a great deal and a great gun. You're looking at spending a maximum of 20 bucks to completely refurbish the mag's internals and that's only if you buy a mag parts kit brand new. I got a used parts kit of ebay for 9 bucks. You have to try really hard to break a classic mag.
