its crazy out there!
i just looked in a cheaper than dirt and my eyes went blank. 99.97 for a gi ar15 30rd mag. i dont know how everybody else feels about this BS but im done with these places and just going to reload some. i bet money on this,,, some of these people pushing all this crazy gun control and mag s have stock in a few companies. price gouding to the maxs. i wonder if there are a few laws being broked right there on prices.
i don't know about laws. but i consider "gougers" to be very short sighted.
i got an email from CFS today $179.99 + $7.99 shipping for 200 rounds of m855 !
$0.94 a round for 5.56! the did throw in a MRE--LOL!
i once bought lots of stuff from CFS but now days i do most of my trading with JSE-- hell i have bought quite a few oddball mags from them lately at regular price--
i'll continue to buy and BO stuff from JSE--
CFS--naaaa--- it going to take me a long time to forget this BS their doing today--
Come on now 427, they're throwing in an MRE with that ammo.
Dont forget the free bug out bucket that adds another .25 cents to the deal LOL
No, I would not pay that much!
CTD has shown their true colors for a couple of months now, why is anyone even going there anymore?
Is it legal to manufacture magazines without a license?
I know a few sheet metal guys that could use the work.
We'd have to source springs & followers but that stuff is still pretty available.
how many dam fools out there to pay the bullsh*t prices. on mags alone. i still remember the big primer scare and *uck, when will people stop this crap. dont they know if no one buys their products that it will go down. dont they know that no matter what it will be there from some where. unemployment at its worst but yet people will by this stuff for a stupid price>>> makes me want to unload everything gun and retire to a beach.
People like us aren't the people buying that stuff though because we already (or should already) have a decent amount of mags. The people actually paying for this stuff are the people who don't know any better and didn't start buying guns until Dec 15th 2012.
CTD is dead to me because they are seriously gouging. GI m16/M4 mags were almost impossible to give away before the great scare of 2013 because everybody was buying 90 PMAGS at a time. I have a couple PMAGS and mostly GI mags (thanks to my armorer being a groomsman at my wedding) and they have never let me down following minor cheap alterations.
Rumor on the streets is the AWB will get dropped, but the push for low-capacity mags is still going to happen. There are still some reasonable companies out there that have just said they are going to stop selling them on backorder just to catch up, but they aren't jacking up the price. But charging almost $100 for a magazine that didnt cost $2 to make is criminal.
Just stay strong. Once all the mall ninjas are satisfied these companies guilty of price gouging are going to be hurting because guys like us will have already moved our business elsewhere and companies like CTD will have to stick to selling pop-up tents and waterproof matches. Just laugh at the guys paying $1300 for WASR 10s at the fun shows (seen it with my own eyes)
There are too many of us who are too well connected and informed for there to be a repeat of 1994. Just wait until the people who are regretting their decision on November 6th to calm down and quit buying stuff out from under us.
We will make it through this stuff together brothers.
Got a buddy in my area that claims someone offered him $2000.00 for his semi tactical Romy SAR. Seriously, WTF?!?!?!?!?!
C-Products AR15 223 30RD Black Aluminum
to me even $29 each for a c-prod 30 is a bit too high. i think retail on these is $15.
i would pay $30 for a c-products before i would pay $20 for an orlite or $100 for a ex USGI--LOL
the only mags i wish i had a few more of are the p-mags.
i stocked up on those D&H made DSG marked mags when CTD had them on sale for $4.99 each, and then i bought a bunch of c-products back when the were sale for $7 each--
so it ain't like i be hurting for any ar-15 mags --
i am still buying a few odd cal mags like 9mm and 7.62x39-- so far the most expensive one i have bought cost $21--all the rest i got for strictly retail price--and this is after the big panic too. most of these i got for $16 each--not cheap but not a gouge either.
there are still places to get mags if you look. you don't have to deal with gougers.
Hey 2nd, I believe it. I was at a fun show this last weekend and a guy had a couple SKSs on the table;
1) A Norinco with the bayonet removed, $975
2) A Norinco with a bayonet, $1050
3) SKS with red wooden stock, $2200
I've got five and the most I payed for any of them was $100, and I thought that was a lot to pay for a &79.00 gun.
