Default Sta-Rite question

Does anyone know how rare low-tension mag-fired Sta-Rites are vs. battery and ignitor models? I'm looking at 2 2 1/2HP engines, one was originally an ignitor engine, but it has since been converted to spark plug/buzz coil, and the other is an original mag-fired engine. There's quite a difference in price between the two (mag is about 2X the battery), so I'm wondering if the mag fired model is worth that much more...if I end up with the battery model, I'd like to convert it back to original, with the ignitor. Any help would be appreciated.
