Default Value of Magazine H&R W M14 M1A

What are Harrington and Richardson (H&R) and Winchester (W) 20 round magazine worth.

20-40 depending on condition. Winchester is OM, W is Westinghouse and worth a bit more. Watch for fake W's. Marking on original is about 1 inch from the bottom, and 4 tack welds on the latch plate.
IMO

yes there are 4 small welds and the markings are about 1 inch from the bottom. Always though H&R was Harrington Richardson. Thanks for the incite to H&R on M14 mags.

H&R is Harrington & Richardson, they were just produced by subcontractors or at different facilities. Makes no difference, value or otherwise. Be assured, if the DOD had a problem with them, the buck stopped at H&R and they would have been held responsible, so they kept a close eye on anyone making products for them and the quality control was no less stringent for those facilities. Back in the old days when there were actually contracts, if the producer didn't turn out exactly what was expected by the u.s. government, they didn't get paid. That fixes a lot of problems quickly.

I believe the price estimates are a bit low, given the fact that current commercial offerings are now $27.50 to $37.00 at different places. Some places over $40. I wouldn't even consider selling any of my g.i. mags for less than $50 each plus shipping, no matter their condition. They are too easy to reparkerize and dress up the guts.

I recently sold some new ones in four packs for $50 each to spread my good fortune around, but I have seen the same four packs bring $75 for each mag and be sold out almost immediately, and I sold some used ones that looked almost new for less than $40 to an old customer, but he bought in bulk and is a real stand-up guy.
