Quality AR magazines at $7.99

Thirty-round AR-15 magazines for $7.99 each at http://palmettostatearmory.com/index...minum-mag.html

D&H, which imo are some of the best of the GI-style magazines (equal to NHMTG, Colt, & Okay imo), with black teflon finish and they include magpul followers, which makes them a very good bargain. Limit of ten, but it's a limit per-day, not per-person; so you can order ten today, ten tomorrow, etc.

Shipping took my total cost to $86 for ten. Remembering that a single magazine was running that much a year ago if you could even find one, should be a real incentive to stock up at these prices imo.

Yeah, good mags, and at that price, no excuse for not having 10-12 mags for your AR15.

The 10-12 per gun thing used to be my benchmark as well. I may be turning into a cranky old man, but after going thru the 94-04 ban already and with the ban-happy political climate the way it is nowadays, I want to have my kids' potential supply taken care of, not just my own. Even though they're aluminum they're more durable than a lot of folks realize, but there is still some attrition/loss/shrink to all three categories (damage, wear, and loss), so I'm probably overstocked by some folks' standards (and way understocked by others) at 40 or so per gun at this point.

Thanks for the heads up. I have a bucketload of D&H mags I bought used and upgraded with MP followers. All of the ones I have tried functioned 100% so far.

I might just have to pick up 10 of these. Can never have too many mags or too much ammo.

If you go on a per AR15 basis, I might be at about 15 per gun personally.

There is no such thing as too many mags though.

Same ones at DSG for $10.50, and magpul 30's for $12.25: http://dsgarms.com/Category/515_1/30round_.aspx

Brownells has similar (with green follower) for $9.99, or with magpul follower for $10.90 ($109.00 per ten-pack):

Fwiw, back in stock & at the same price:
http://palmettostatearmory.com/index...minum-mag.html

If you prefer the older style dry-film/phosphate to teflon finish, here are NHMTG 30's at $10.99 including shipping:

Agree with you 100%. I have young kids and truly doubt they ever get a chance to buy 30rders for today's prices.

This!

Kids......also children of friends & family!

The amount of money & space invested for items like this is rather trivial....

...especially when compared to going short or without during hard times!


The inexpensive mags in this thread is a good incentive to...

..Buy them cheap & stock em deep!

B*tach tactical has an American made nylon 8 cell mag pouch (black or desert tan) with 8 Magpul mags for $90 shipped. The pouch by itself is $30, so I think this is a pretty good deal.

Did you ever think there may be a reason for that? Google B0tach and you will see a mile long list of complaints. Buyer beware.

Got my pouch/pmag order from ****** today. No issues.

The pouch is cheaply made but fine for lugging mags to the range

Haven't received my mag order from palmetto state armory yet. Placed the same day I think

Just in the fwiw category, two of these particularly good deals still going on that I know of, probably many more out there as well. No telling how long, and there's no way I'd wait until this fall's elections to decide whether I had a comfort-level's worth on hand...

D&H aluminum GI-style (one of the best aluminum magazines at any price, imo), including magpul anti-tilt follower still available for $7.99 http://palmettostatearmory.com/index...minum-mag.html

Magpul PMAG M3s (the latest version) with dust covers included. Ten-pack for an effective $99.99 its $149.95 but includes a $50 gift card. http://palmettostatearmory.com/index...ag557-blk.html

The magpuls still end up being a couple dollars higher, but some folks think theyre worth it. To me personally its tomato/tomahto; Im fine with either one, but I know some people have other preferences. Im not normally a fan of gimmicky sales like the gift-card thing, but in this case I went ahead & got on it. Since part of the reason for having any more at this point are for potential future sale, seems like the pmags were the way to go this time. Two ten-packs of the pmags get $100 in store credit, which I figure to use for a dozen of the D&Hs. Basically for the same amount of money, a person can have 20 pmags & 12 D&H, or skip the pmags and have 37 of the D&H. If these were absolutely, positively for personal use, the greater number of D&Hs would win out imo, but the possibility of future sales is to be considered, the greater market recognition of the pmag may make them worth more than the slightly greater number of D&H's.

Either/or; just my rambling musings

There's nothing wrong with having 10 or 12 mags but when I was in the infantry we were issued 2- 30 round and 5- 20's for 160 rounds total. Later the standard issue was 7-30's. When you carry 7- 30's all day every day for a year you might not want to add 5 more loaded mags to that.

Agree - I don't carry that many and don't intend to unless things got silly bad. (And if they got that bad, I'd try real hard to stay indoors if possible.)

Owning isn't the same as EDC-ing though. There are a lot of things (guns, magazines, shoes, fan belts, toilet paper, toothpaste, razor blades...) that I may own a whole bunch of but don't necessarily carry very many of.
