Hicaps... They is gone

Postby WyoDutch » Wed Dec 19, 2012 7:32 pm

Seems all the big boys... Cabelas, MidwayUSA, CheapDirt, CDNN Investments... all have apparently pulled the high capacity rifle mags off the market... probably trying to figure out how much us panic-stricken buyers will pay. Some mags are available... at a price. For example, CheapDirt is asking the astronomical price of $59.99 for a Ruger factory Mini 14 blue magazine.

I ordered a couple Mini 14 20 rounders from CDNN investments before the panic.... but they haven't shipped them yet. My guess is, I'll get a refund of the $25.99 price and a week later, be invited to re-order at $59.99

Here's how nuts thimgs are right now.... http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=321747640

Crazy. I wish there was more we could do to protect our shrinking freedoms.

This is flat out crazy, almost every gunstore site is crashing/offline. They have almost nothing in stock, I can't even find any lowers in stock anywhere.

Just wait a couple weeks. If Biden's commission is anything like Simpson-Bowles, it will drag on and then be ignored.

I had some Glock 17 mags, 17 round on backorder with Botach Tactical and got an e-mail today that they shipped and at the price I had ordered them a while back, $22 each so at least there is one company that honors their prior commitment

Local gunshop here in CoMo darn near sold out their entire inventory of ARs while I was picking up mine today. Got to hand it to The Black Rifle. They didn't jack up their prices and cash in. I picked up 12 surplus 30 round mags for $10 a piece. They had about 30 left.

Everyone else -- prices increased and sold out anyway.

Here is another one for you.
I was in one of my local gunship today and heard a salesperson on the phone with a distributor say there are no more at lowers available in the US!
I asked if he was serious and he said his distributor was 100% serious.

:eek: rjburk.... Family message board, as Readymom stated already... no one said anything about your freedom of speech. Messages with intent to do harm are not necessary or needed, and if they are *sarcasm*, then all the more reason to abstain.... I'm appalled at your condescension.

back to the topic that was initiated for the thread: the auctions are unbelievable! Oh my word! $100+ for 2 magazines?!?!?! Insane.

I saw the writing on the wall and ordered half a dozen Pmags for $12 a piece the day of the shooting.

Unfortunately, they arrived but I immediately lost them in a boating accident. :D
