    Default CPRODUCTS?

    I ordered 2 mags from them dec 30. Havent heard anything from them, I called but they wont answer the phone, they say they are closed. Left messeges,e-mails-nothing. Midway USA says out of stock, no backorder, they cant get a shipping date from Cproducts. Are they out of business? I suppose I will have to get a Alexander arms 6.5 grendel mag. Pricey.edit; I just went to AA, not too bad on price. Ordered two.

    I ordered qtty 2 CProducts 30 rounder mags from CDNN for my AR.

    The follower is good.

    The floor plate is good.

    The spring is good.

    The magazine body is crap. It's so thin that it deformed when I tried to load the magazine from strippers. I'd get 10 rounds in, then whack the heck out of it to align the rounds, then I'll try to get another 10 rounds in, whack the heck out of the mag.... Bottom line? NO WAY will I even take these magazines to the range.

    I kept the followers, floor plates, and springs as replacement parts. The bodies got thrown away.

    I'm staying away from CProducts. Pure crap, IMO.

    i got 8 or 10 maybe + a few more of the 30rd aluminum mags from someone i can't recall if it was CDNN or copes when they were on sale for $5.99 a pop. and a couple more like three or four 20s, along with four 30 rd 7.62x39 mags i bought from C-prod and another 10 i bought from palmetto when they were on sale for $9.99 each , and another 10 i bought from palmetto in 5.45x39 and about six+ in 6.5 grendel.

    how many is that anyway? about 40 some odd mags give or take a few .

    out of all these mags i have only had a problem with one mag --it was a 7.62x39 and it's hole for the mag latch was a tad too tight and low. a little re-work with the china made dremmel tool and it runs fine now.

    i can't say i have had any real problems out of the c-prod mags so far and my round count on the 5.45 alone is in the thousands--

    i don't know if C-prod is still around or going to be around. with the economy as sour as it is they may be bleeding money. i was reading on 6.8 that they were having some problems delivering mags and wern't answering their phones or replying to emails.

    that is a bad sign.

    i was thinking about doing a 6.8spc2 or 9mm but if mags get in short supply --that could become a problem.

    i think i'll order a few 7.62x39s while there still in stock-- er someplace other than Cprod though--LOL!

    Oh no- I need to get a few 6.8 mags for a AR-15. They did me right on some 7.62 AR mags a while back. Good people to deal with-hope they haven't gone under!!

    You guys have me scratching my head....

    Referencing my previous post, the mag bodies I got were 1/2 to 1/3 the thickness of my other AR mags. When I installed the stripper adapter, it took some force to overcome the black paint. Probably due to the magazine's mouth being longer/wider than spec. Once the adapter was on, stripping off 10 rounds caused the mag body to flex, resulting in rounds inside the mag to jump out of line/sequence and/or tilt badly.

    I'm wondering if CDNN sold me some crap that had the CProd baseplate.... Doesn't make sence that they would.

    C-products may well have shipped a few bad mags at one time or the other so i don't doubt your story about having two bad c-products mags one bit.

    it would be easy for some rejects to get mixed in a shipment and it happens to mall-ninja name dropper high $$ mags too.

    heck i even bought a number of C-products 30 and 30rd mags from CDNN recently, i ordered the batch of 30 rounders from CDNN last year in fact.

    at one time C-prod had some issues with quality control, that has been a few years ago though .

    there could still be a few lemon mags floating around in a warehouse that pop up in a shipment from time to time even after all these years.

    I read on 6.8 forums that they were in the process of being sold. Hell, I bet I've 30 or so of their mags. Last summer they replaced some 7.62x39 AR mags within a couple days. j427 helped me build 2 of them and some had feed probs. The mag followers were the old style and they sent me new mags and a pre-paid shipping tag to send the bad ones back! That is service!! I've had no probs with 5.56 mags from them.

    I was at the gun shop yesterday and it was asked if Cproducts was sold or not, no one could give a definite answer, so for now the rumor is out there.
