i've checked CDNN, cheaper than dirt, midway, and brownells. everyone is out of stock. does anyone know who still has 30rd mags available from a reputable manufacturer at a reasonable price? if so, please point me in the right direction.

please spare me the lecture on how i should have bought them years ago. i know.

thanks in advance for the help.

You can go to the Mfg: C Products sells them direct on their website, though they are a couple of bucks higher than most places advertise.

Does anyone know a source for Pre-ban AR mags? (other than gunbroker)

Some of us in AWB States need some too....

Wow! I've never seen Brownells out of stock before. I'm lucky I got my order in.

Bushmaster seems to still have some 30 rounders, and they also have 10 and 5 rounders for those of you living behind the iron curtain.

I can't believe that some people were so obtuse as to wait until Obama actually won to get the mags they needed. What were you thinking? Did you not see the writing on the wall?

I guess you can blame me I have about 95-30 rd 42-20 rd couple of those flush 5 rounder’s and oh yeah the BETA, if you have to ask how many it holds you don’t need it, like a boy scout, be paranoid.

I deal with four distributors and they're all out of stock.

I'd thought about selling magazines on my site, but there's so little markup that I decided against it.

I bought an AR mag at pretty most gun shows I went to for the last 20 years, so I have enough to last. I don't know how many I have, but it's enough.

Sold a few to a couple of friends over the last week but have put most of them away for awhile.
counted like 110 of the 20 round colt's and then found another box of them.
have a like number of the 30's also.
I have no ideal if a ban will happen but they are not eating anything so I will put them away and add to the collection.

I just got an e-mail the other day that BravoCompany has its 11.95 military AR 30 rounders in stock and I ordered some.
And yeah I already have plenty AR mags and M-1 Carbine mags too -- but it doesn't hurt to add a few more.:D

Ok now I've gotta ask. How many rounds does it hold?

See plenty at army surplus stores and local shops. $9.00 for well used but they all work. I'll save my new ones back and use the junkers.

what's the freaking hoopla over 30 rounders?

if a ban takes place, people who currently own hi cap magazines are probably going to be safe. you can still fix or replace them with new hi caps.

its the people who try to buy them after the ban that gets them in trouble.

Uh, what? "Ban on the manufacture" means they won't be making any more, hence there will be none to buy.

Did you mean to say something else?

There's not going to be a "warranty" on something that is illegal to make...

I just got 4 from DPMS they have them for 12.00 and 13.50

i guarantee you they will still be making magazine parts. what planet are you from!?


lest i use my own freaking communist state as an example: you cant buy hi caps in kommiefornia. its ilegal to produce manufacture or sell. but there are loads of people who still import the parts to fix their old ones legally if they so choose. that will never change and i doubt it will in any other state.. as most states have it better than CA in regards to magazine laws.

so then you think they're going to ban the production of followers and mag bodies? companies will just stop supporting magazines all together? oh, let me get out my story book


and warantee? uh, i didnt say the word warantee, did i? i said YOU can still fix or replace.

seems like for every error someone else points out theres usually 3 or 4 going in the other direction.

thanks, guys.

i ended up going direct to c-products. they don't say on the website that they're out of stock, but i emailed their sales office, and they said to expect 2-3 weeks for delivery. considering the price versus wait time, this seemed better than going through the larger distributors, who will also likely be waiting 2-3 weeks to get any in stock.

I DON'T have 50 or so 20 and 30 rounders.....

I DON'T have 20 or so Glock 19 Mags.

I DON't have at least 10 for every gun I have..

In fact, I DON'T have any guns. I sold everything I own. to whom? I forget.

I am in compliance with the new Obamanation.

Before people go off the deep end. How many high cap mags do you NEED? 2 or 3 per rifle? Less? Get what you want, but remember that the need for high cap mags for a defense weapon is almost non existant. I'm buying them to resell later, but not because I need them. If I need to take more than 10 shots at an intruder, I shouldn't own a gun anyway.

http://www.del-ton.com/Beta_C_Mag_p/mp1014.htm

A very magical number 100. Do I NEED it, well no, not really, but does it look mean in my Kel-Tec 223 pistol, you bet!


...How many high cap mags do you NEED? 2 or 3 per rifle? Less?...

If a good deal fell in your lap like 100 AR mags for 250 bucks cash from a local army surplus dealer you knew wouldn’t you take it???

but remember that the need for high cap mags for a defense weapon is almost non existantThat may or may not be true; in most cases, it is. But it is also tangential to why we buy them.

We buy them because we can, and should be able to.

We buy them because they facilitate shooting games.

We buy them because there is NO HARM in having them, and demonizing them is irrational.

We buy them because we would rather have 30rds and not need all of them than have only 10rds and need more.

If you don't want them - that's fine. But most of us do. But it is poor form to impose your values on others, just as you would have others keep their own values to themselves.
