I have noticed that the price of sig 226 high cap mags are around $50, even directly from sigarms. Will this price come down? or is this the price that it will primarily stay at? thanks

Nobody knows for sure whats going to happen. And buy the way. most people are trying to call them STANDARD capacity mags. We dont want to keep bringing up that Ban that coined that phrase.

Cut the guy some slack :D

My wife and I have come across quite a few people that 1) didnt' know the ban was over; 2) didn't know there was a ban; or 3) kept confusing random parts of the 'AW' ban with the Brady Law and the 1934 NFA and 1968 GCA (this from a caller today on 'Gun Talk.').

A friend told he he came back from a gun show in Tucson. I asked him about the prices of magazines (an the sour look of vendors stuck with formerly premium-priced goods). Of note was his comment that one vendor was selling magazines at the old-during-the-ban prices. When asked why he was selling them at the old inflated prices, he made it clear that he was unaware that the law had been sunsetted.

A lot of politicians and the media are doing this, too (some of them on purpose, I suspect).

They were $40 in 93 before the ban so $50 now seems about right.

Go visit www.cdnninvestments.com. They have some demo Sig P226 15-round magazines listed there for $19.99. S&H is $9.99, but you'll save on the sales tax.

In response to "standard capacity" I am aware that everyone should use this term,but I didnt think everyone was up to speed on it...

I think prices may come down a little bit as more supply gets onto the market. There won't be much market for the neutered mags, but I see no problem in using them at the range.:D

Sig parts from Sig are generally pricey. That said I agree that Sig mags before the ban were about $40 so 10 years later every thing elses prices went up why not mags?

$50 is not too bad for Sig Mags. The 10 rounders are going for around $40 at Cheaperthandirt.com.

I just got some LEO, sligthly used SIGs for $19 each. They are out there!

And $10 S&H from CDNN- thats outrageous!

Not when you order a ton of stuff that at other places would cost $16 to ship or more. And their handguns next day only cost me $10 for shipping too.

The $52 that Sig is charging for fresh mags is full retail. That's exactly what you should expect to see from the factory. They're not about to undercut their distributors.

Have some CDNN mags. In good shape, cheap. Jump on it.
