    No that is not a good price. Based on what you are describing, my LGS has boxes upon boxes of them sitting out. $19.99 for 20rd.

    I bought 2 Armalite AR10 25 rd mags for $40ea... I've paid more for 1911 mags, I wanted Magpul but this particular model 10TBN won't take them:mad: that's all I have for my AR15 and really like them much better than steel, maybe Magpul will eventually make them for this model:confused:

    I bought 10 30rd magpul mags for $18 each at PSA last month!

    I would pay that much for a 20rd mag or even a basic metal one.

    Nope, but I guess it depends on how desperately you need AR mags.

    I live in NJ and paid $26 for magpul 20 round mags that were modified for 15 rounds. Granted that WAS 6 months ago. Today they go for $40. So go figure.

    The manufacture is in full swing and the proposed bills are unsupported. If you have mags, wait. If you don't ...you still might want to wait. Only three weeks ago there was nothing, anywhere. It'll come back around . The best way to combat price hikes is to not buy into them. literally.


    drvsafe....I hate your av. it creeps me out. just sayin.;)

    That's tillie, I suppose its a clown. It's an old time advertising image from the boardwalks around where I grew up both in Coney Island In Brooklyn, NY as well as Asbury Park, NJ.
    I won't doubt if you're unfamiliar it is a bit creepy. But for those familiar it's a warm reminder of a $hitload of good times at the boardwalks.
