A worker at Cabelas told me this about an hour ago.

I've also heard that other retailers are "pulling" rifles from shelves.

Midway USA website says "Discontinued by Manufacturer"

Oh boy..... Let the price hikes begin....




By the way I know I'm :deadhorse: here.

Just wondering why Magpul has stopped shiping?

Hmmm interesting. Maybe stopped shipping due to not having any to ship? Not sure but I find it hard to think they are not making any more.

We went through this back when B.O. was elected the first time around. Then after last week, man people are jumping in with both feet. I can only hope it make the firearm community stronger.

The guy at Cabelas was full of it. Direct statement from Magpul earlier today...


"We've received a lot of comments about some retailers charging extremely high prices for our products. We strongly discourage pricing strategies like this with our direct customers, as we just don't feel right about it. Those retailers who are buying through distribution, and not direct, may be worried about supply and reacting to the market with this pricing increase. We are firm believers in free capitalism, and as long as no one is damaging market value through their pricing strategy, we will allow the market to correct this situation, as it appears it already is. We intend to continue to produce and sell our products to support the MSRPs we have set. Magazines will continue to flow to those retailers, distributors, and OEM customers with whom we have direct relationships."

Thunder Ranch reported on their Facebook page that CTD just upped their PMag price to 65 bucks a piece, though I haven't verified. Sheesh, why must they take advantage of people like this?

I read that the only ammo we will be able to buy will be rubber bullets in 5 round magazines. They will be serial numbered, and we will need a permit to buy them. We are also going to have to show why we need a rubber bullet as opposed to a bible for self defense.

Do NOT freak out. I was advised by a dealer that Magpul is redesigning the AR-15 30 round magazines. This is why they are being "discontinued". The new design should be showing up in gun shops soon. The reason given for the redesign was a problem with use in the FN SCAR. Apparently the FN SCAR was destroying the Magpul magazines when used properly in the rifle. WHY?? I asked. The dealer did not know, but he said the shape of the new magazines will be more square at the bottom.

They're called M3 PMAGs, and they have been out for a few weeks already. The shape of the cutout for the bolt catch was changed to work better with the SCAR, and the shape of the main body was tweaked a bit to work in the HK416 magazine well, plus a few other changes.

Biggest down side was that the dust covers no longer snap to the bottom. The M2 is being renamed the "MOE PMAG" and will continue to ship for the ~$12.50 price point, but will no longer come with dust covers once current stocks are exhausted.

I just took a look around. Cheaper than dirt seems to be the only well known online gun store right now with such outrageous prices on bulk ammo and certain mags. I liked to buy gun stuff from them, but not anymore. I'll buy my crap somewhere else in future.

I was in my local Cabela's today. They had only a few Pmags in stock, at the normal price of about $15 a piece. They usually have buttloads, probably a hundred or more Pmags on the rack. Don't know if people are buying them up or supply is behind. Probably a little of both.

Ironically, big chain retailers have some of the best prices on ammo and mags right now. A lot of internet retailers are price gouging badly.

I was at Cabelas in Hammond yesterday and they had a butt load of Pmags on their shelves at the same price they've always sold them for.

PS Don't believe anyone at Cabelas tells you about anything.

I don't. I was just posting what I was told. They were sold out of every AR mag of any kind. All the AR rifles and striped receivers were gone as well. I'm going to wait a couple months and clean up when all these people sell all this stuff.

For the most part the people that work at Cabela's are clueless. I have heard this stuff before from Cabela's employees and people whom heard it from a Cabela's employee and it is rarely true.

Magpul probably is wrapping up shipments this week for the year and will begin new shipments after the new year. Or else they believe we are all going to die on Friday so no need to ship more mags.:rofl:

Yes, unless they include a registration mechanism, or a confiscation of pre-existing mags.

How do you register magazines when they don't have serial numbers?

How are you gonna confiscate magazines when there are no serious records of who has what?

WHO would be doing the confiscating?

Again, people need to stop jumping at ****ing shadows, or running around like Chicken Little.

You tell them how many magazines you have of each size. ATF does random checks of home gun safes to verify your stated number of mags like they do with Class 3 weapons. I'm not saying this is going to happen, just that it's a possibility. New Jersey's AWB, like Britain's or Australia's, banned/confiscated pre-existing mags and weapons.

Random house to house gun safe audits? Door to door checks for illegal magazines? Confiscation of 10s of millions of firearms, again door to door in most cases? All by the federal government?

And people really believe this is possible? Are they going to sub contract this out to somebody cause they sure are not capable of doing it themselves :)

Aren't they laying off a not-insignificant percentage of the federal workforce as part of the fiscal cliff?

How does a bankrupt government do confiscation?

Jensen's does have a two mag limit.

A salesman said they are in tight with Magpul and have 7,000 PMags coming in.

I just saw someone selling 30 round Magpul's on a the Rocky Mountain Gun Owner's website for $60/ea.
