Was reading a thing about this earlier that the computerized inventory system most merchants use cannot handle the sheer volume of orders that are pouring in.
Brownells apparently sold 3.5 years worth of (sales wise) of just magpul Pmags in a 72 hour period last weekend.
CDNN has completely suspended online ordering due to the volume.
I don't think anything fishy, just that they are probably swamped due to the high volume of the holiday season and the massive panic buy at the same time.
