    I too frequent them and have done business, one needs to be ready to pay premium as they mark huge and sit until it sells. Sets a precedent that way...

    I will be honest, I have no clue why the Pedersen devices command such a premium. When you read the actual documents on them at the archives, they were just basically a failed design that had no real purpose.

    I could see them having a little premium since they are rare, but I just don't see the large price tag on them. There are so many more interesting variations, that were a success, that don't command anything near what they do. Even Sniper rifles, which some are just as rare as those Pedersen Device, don't command those premiums.

    I used to think they were neat, but then I read the docs on them, and I was like seriously these were a major flop. lol

    I'm with ya, brother. That's why I didn't bid on the device itself in the same auction, haha.
    FYI to all following along, the magazine should be here tomorrow night...along with all the other neat goodies I bought!

    Posted a new thread WITH PICTURES for a little discussion on this down in the 1903 forum.

    Thought we'd get some information on these things for future searchers!

    Considering the made tens of thousands of magazines and only have a dozen or two of the devices intact, the mag is probably a $100-150 dollar part. Put it on ebay or gunbroker and report back with results.

    I owned a semi-auto BAR. When they magazine ban hit from 1994-2004 I saw BAR mags going for up to $250 bucks from various dreamers. Considering there were hundreds of thousands of mags available and probably 1,500 guns in circulation. A decent mag was typically about $20-25 bucks.

    I don't really want to boast (and jinx my good fortune) but I will say this:
    I have sold the magazine. Your price is many, many times lower than I got out of it.
    Based on my experience, I'd buy every single magazine I could find at $150...or $300...or $600...or....
