$90!??!? For new? Quite honestly $90 is less than they are selling for wholesale. It should be $125 retail. http://www.firearmstalk.com/classifieds/for-sale-ar15-60-round-surefire-magazines-ar-15brhigh-capacity-mag-263.html

You'll see 3 gunners using them so they don't have to reload and/or to get proper rest height for resting the gun on the mag if in an awkward position. The other thing is these are 60 round metal mags, not 30 round plastic mags. Good bad or indifferent, you are comparing an apple to an orange comparing a 60 round mag to a 30 round mag.

When surefire released these they flooded the market all at once. I think that was real bad, because every seller bought up a bunch and now true to nature every seller is cutting their own throats to unload inventory. Ridiculous what you see happening in this industry, feast or famine. Sellers selling below cost, sheesh!

Looks to me like you can get them new for the price you mentioned, if that's what you want.

Here's a review on the SF60's

Makes me want to puke. many of those mags are being sold below wholesale cost. I must be getting ripped off! No wonder I can't unload my case of mags. Friggin $90 mags shipped?!

They might be liquidating stock because they aren't moving.

Or selling knockoffs......

Does it look like prices are dropping on these magazines or should I pick one up before the price increases again?

Personally, I don't find them to be all that practical. I'd imagine the multitude of 30rd PMag/Troy/Lancers in my stable will get me to wherever I need to be. But the Surefires do have a reputation as a relatively reliable super-high-cap magazine.

If I wanted one, I'd jump on this deal now. A Surefire 60rd and 5 Pmags for $140 is tough to beat, and kinda the best of both worlds.

I see no problem with a 60 round.
A person need not have it placed in the magwell at all times.

Perhaps use the 30, and have the 60 available. Or Vice Versa.

This, for me, falls into the category of "You can never have too much ammo available"
