    CDNN Investments ripped me off for $89 a piece for 2nd gen G22 FML mags! What junk! They all needed new springs and baseplates. The mag catches were all chewed up! I learned my lesson!;g Just wanted to warn the rest of you. I contacted them thinking they would give me a partial refund or even send another mag. They said no. Buyer beware.:(

    It is a very silly place.
    Call them and ask for two other ones again. Tell the post office as well. You didnt get what you reasonably expected and they aren't intrested in making it right.

    Conversely, the ones they sent me were perfect. You can't even tell they are "demo."

    Sorry about that Steve. I've bought mags from them before and never had a problem. Maybe you just talked to the wrong guy. They were always straight up with me. I'd call again like redware says. Can't hurt, just don't get nasty and start screaming at them while talking. Explain calmly what's wrong and see what they can do for you. Good luck and let us know how you make out. Eddie C.

    This is the first bad report I've heard about CDNN. I've got nothing but 100% great service from them. I guess there is a first time for everything. Call them again. And again if necessary. Don't give up. Don't surrender.

    I got several of their South African Browning HP mags and they are great. Maybe you just talked to the wrong person there; I'd give it another attempt.

    I have to agree with everyone, give them a call and see what they say with a different person. Or ask to talk to the manager. I know Friday I ordered some S&W demo mags and they arrived today and look and function great. Sorry to hear about your bad luck. Keep tryin though. ;I

    I have had generally positive experiences with CDNN. All of the "demo" G22 mags I've bought from them have been in great shape.

    I did order a G17 FML hi-cap mag and paid with a perosnal check. On Mar 11 they said it would ship out the next day. So far, haven't seen it.

    Steve-O, tone down the volume a bit.

    I have bought "Demo" mags before, and that usually meant (like new). These were not even close! They did send me a UPS call tag. But they didnt answer my e-mails for 4 days. By then I had already sucked up the loss, and put my own springs followers and floorplates on. Pretty ugly looking $100 fullcaps. Live and learn!

    They have a garantee that all their mags function. Just call,them and tell them they are causing FTFeed and you want some different ones.

    I've ordered many mags from CDNN. Never had any problems and they have never been rude to me on the phone. If somebody told me buyer beware on the phone, I'd tell them seller beware cause the sh!t is coming back.

    My outstanding order for a G17 preban mag arrived today...via UPS ground vs. USPS priority mail. So that's why it took so long.

    Another satisfied CDNN customer. :)
