    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."

    Don't worry, someone will be along shortly to say they didn't sat that. Never mind the fact that it was on their facebook page and shared by a Magpul employee. :whistling:

    Well I heard that Winchester, Federal and Remington were going to load their 5.56 and .223 ammo so it had a max range of 23 feet. :whistling:

    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.
