Based on the current market, is this a really good price
Based on the current market, it is a GREAT price. Especially since these are steel mags. Which i prefer. I assume a lot of guys prefer the alum or poly mags, (which i understand), but for me, there's nothing like the feel of slamming home a steel AR (or AK) mag. I don't carry a bugout bag, etc so weight is not an issue.
Also, I feel Mako is to be commended for not jacking up the price on these. I think they have been rewarded tenfold judging by 10,000+ order numbers over at arfcom
Hope they will ship the orders soon. Have not received any email from them lately.
Apparently, they're shipping orders constantly. They're too busy to update their web site to reflect your current order status (I'm in the same boat). arfcom has a thread[ar15.com] where people have been posting their order number and when they ordered and received their magazines.
My order number is 56xx (12/26/2012) and mine still shows processing.
FYI, my order placed on 12/26 was delivered on 1/11. Pretty damn quick as far as I'm concerned given the current situation. These are damn nice mags. Nothing under $45 even comes close to the quality of these- These are not aluminum generics.... Free Shipping at 5% off your order codes are still valid.
So what good are these if they become illegal (highly likely) to use. I really can't see this as a good deal ,now if they were 10 rnd mags yes that would be a good deal, but this is not.
No offense, but far too many people are sheep, not people (i.e.Sheeple).
For starters if they are bought before they become "illegal", you still legally own and keep them. It will be just like the absurd 1994 "Assault" weapons ban. You could not buy them after the law was passed, but there was no confiscation of existing ones. If they attempted to do that, it would incite a civil war.
Unfortunately far too many people do not understand what the Founding Fathers meant when they specifically wrote SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.
More still do not understand that the primary principle of the 2nd Amendment is not so citizens can hunt, target shoot, collect or even have home protection.
Instead the primary purpose was to insure that the citizens would have a means to prevent tyrannical government run amok from being able to enslave them. Lets face it, all the other parts of the Constitution mean nothing if there is not a way for free citizens to enforce the provisions put down on paper.
