    LOL, I was gonna say!!

    They get a few Glock mags in from time to time, and they usually sell out the same day. I often stop by around 9am to pick up anything I may need. Right now, all I saw was a G26 mag...nothing else aside from some 1911 Kimber mags, some HK mags, and a few SIG mags (and the 92FS mags I mentioned earlier).

    Best thing to try and do is get friendly with the guys there, ask if you can leave your number to get a call when new stock comes in. Maybe they can put what you want aside for a day or so. That...or swing by every day to see what they have.

    Made it on over there today and asked about the 15rd. AR-15 .223 mags. Ron (my guy) told me they might be getting one more shipment in (80 pieces). He also told me that the company making these 15rd. mags is going to stop producing them and is going to make standard capacity GI mags only. Either way, he's going to call me if any come in. I'll PM you if I get a phone call.

    Hey Gents,

    I'm looking to get ammo in bulk 9mm and .40 but every store in NJ is pretty much out of stock of all ammo. Where are you Jersey guys buying from? Anyone here make there own? The range has ammo but the prices are just crazy 26 to 30 a box.

    So even tho the barrel is not stamped NATO 5.56 it's ok to shoot 5.56 ... The resin I ask is cause everyone I have asked has said that it will hurt the barrel maybe blow up in my face ...

    I think some older Colts did come with true .223 chambers.

    If that is the case, 5.56 isn't likely to destroy the gun, but it can lead to accelerated wear, popped primers, and stuck cases. If there's a part on the verge of failure, however, it can cause serious damage to the rifle.

    Double check the markings on the barrel, including under the handguards. If you still can't find a caliber marking, try contacting Colt with the model and serial number, they may be able to help.

    That said, if the barrel only has "M" and "12" (Are you sure that M isn't MP or MPI?), you may be looking at a Colt lower with a different upper.

    That's not where Colt typically marks their barrels. Any chance you can get a clear photo of it and post it here?

    I get the feeling you either have a Colt where the barrel was replaced, or the entire upper isn't Colt at all.

    Upload it to a website like ImageShack, PhotoBucket, etc. and then post it here.

    For example...

    [​IMG]

    If you click "Quote" under this post, you can then see how I posted the image. Simply use image tags ( [​IMG] ) around the URL of the photo.
