I have nothing to do with IMA. Just noticed the ad and they seem to be making a big deal out of it. No idea if it's a bargain or bad deal.

Just think, those pouches were going for $150 alone 2-3 years ago. Some of the mags are as new. Some have actually been touched up with paint. I already had a set that I put together over the years (including paying $100 for a newish 5 cell pouch a couple years back- ouch), but I bought another set at the Creek this last trip bcause of the "new" good price. Five years from now, they'll be dried up again and collectors will be paying double or triple what they go for now. Oh well.

They are very nice. The magazines are NOS with just some storage wear. The cosmoline has been stripped off. The web material is also NOS, again with some storage wear. It is a good deal for the price. I happen to like the XX magazines better than the XXX's so I found it to be very worthwhile.
