More Mags Coming?
I suspect that Tapco and PMAG will be very busy the next month of so after the holidays making new mags. The risk is how soon any possible "mag ban" will be agreed upon. Obviously the companies won't be ramping up production during the holidays and they won't be expanding production with this new threat on a potential mag ban. They may be working 24/7 for a few weeks to maximize sales in the immediate term though.
I would probably get more steel AK-47 mags, Tapco AK-74 mags and USGI AR mags, but then again I have plenty. I have plenty of the cheap HK-91/G3 mags, M76 mags, CETME mags, PSL mags, VEPR mags, etc. But I may get a few odd ones like the custom 28-rd M76 and 10-rd VEPR mags. Other than that, I don't really need to over pay for mags during this feeding frenzy.
I am glad to see so many guns, ammo, mags, etc. sold into private hands making it virtually impossible for the Feral Government to implement an effective confiscation scheme. I just wish there were many more available to put into "the peoples" hands.

Right you are...Magpul just announced new 10, and 15 rnd mags for the AR. Seems they have been in the design phase for a while due to sales to Calif. (10 rnd max.) or other sub-30 rnd rule states.
See the below link for pics and more details.

2013 will be an ugly year for gun laws methinks.
there was a mag ban in place where the school murders happened wasn't there?
But, somebody which did not obey the law still stole a gun and committed the crimes.

yep i am sure a crazed gunman would really be worried he might have a illegal hi cap mag!--
boy what a deterrent!
so instead of three 30s the murderer is now carrying 5 --10s---
boy i feel safe now! (what dumbasses!)
WE NEED ARMED GUARDS IN ALL SCHOOLS!
on 55 grain to the head was what this A-hoe murderer needed BEFORE he went on the shooting spree!
I just wish Tapco would start putting metal feedlips and locking lugs on their AK mags.
That seems to be the Achilles heel of these. Get a tapco that feeds well with metal lugs...Yeah, I'd pay $15 for that. :)
Yeah hopefully my optimism holds out and things start to drop again. It is as if they had this planned to make our hobby one of a rich man's. I think the panic has nowhere to go but down from here I just hope it happens fast.
there are a few mags about SMG has a few ar-15 mags for $17 they may have a few AK types as well.
mags are coming back in stock. any decent ar or ak mag at near retail price is going out the door super fast still.
the thing that worries me more than parts is still ammo --
parts are coming back and mags --ffew and far between but i see JSE is putting up more stuff on their retail price page.
only thing is AMMO--hell it is getting to the point they ain't even taking back orders--
this ain't a good sign---
With all due respect to those who died in Newtown and their families..
The idiot shooter never took the AR or ammo for it out of his trunk..
Sadly front page, breaking news.. "Assault weapon kills." No it did not, he never opened the trunk..
Does not make the heinous crime any better. Just get the facts straight..
"I remember in the initial hours of this shooting, the police said they found the rifle in the car," the anonymous poster wrote. "But the administration-controlled (mainstream media) had a pre-planned attack already waiting, to ban so-called assault weapons and jumped on that line of reporting, knowing it was a lie, which included people like Piers Morgan who said the shooter used an AR-15 that shoots hundreds of rounds per minute, as if it were a machine gun."

My 20 round Saiga 12 drums and 12 round mags just shipped. Ordered them in December of 2012.
I guess there is a God after all.
My wife asked me " what do you need those for"? I told her VP Biden told me to buy a shotgun. I listened. A Saiga 12 with 20 round drums WAS what he meant , right? :)
I'm just supporting our Dear Leaders and all, trying to do my part! :)
