Didn't someone say tapco is junk? I'm considering ordering 5 or so just in case the high cap magazine is included in the ban on the 22nd

I'd not worry about AR mags.

If any of you had military connections in the ban years getting AR mags was quite the easy task. Around Bragg if you know the right people there $5 a pop for USGI mags as we speak. I've got 3 trashbags worth down there for that price if I want them and I'm not in any hurry for them.

You need to worry about non surplus mags like CMMG conversion mags or mags for comercial guns. Anything that was ever milspec will not be a issue.

I tend to agree. I'm fairly satisfied with my pmag count. I'm having trouble finding reasonably priced Glock and sig mags though

The stuff like PMAG 20s for the 308 platform, SCAR-17 mags and similar will be the ones that will be going for hundreds of dollars if a ban happens.

I'm just trying to get my hands on at least a pair of pmags. Today is "shipment day" at my local retailers..... the 5 that I call... if they don't have them / can't save a pair for me this week, I'm about to give up. lol

It may sound terrible to suggest,but if you really only want a few Pmags get them off ebay for around 40$ a piece. Pmags aren't rare by any means,just thousands of people who don't even know what they are for are buying them in bulk to resell for a profit. Some list them as a "rebuild kit" to get around ebay policys. It's pretty easy to read between the lines.

Just ordered 8 thermold mags from sportsmans guide. They hold 30 rounds but "expand" to 45. Looking online, thermold has a decent reputation and on gunbroker there are multiple thermold listings going for 50 a pop for these 30/45 round configurations. If anyone wants them, heres a link : http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/c....aspx?a=910193

Hell, they retail for for 35 a pop on thermolds site alone : http://www.thermoldmagazines.com/col...30-45-magazine

Turns out I only have 1 USGI mag. I thought I had more, but must have traded them somewhere along the way. If you want it let me know and we'll make arrangements.

I have only 1 Tapco mag and it is for my AK, so I won't speak universally, but in my particular experience it was a giant POS. For AKs, military surplus mags are the no brainer.

Any experience with Thermold? I have seen mixed reviews. Some online have said they were terrible and others have said the 30/45 round mag is awesome?

Unfortunately not. One of the AR gurus on here can probably chime in.

Much appreciated, but I actually just ordered 3 of these (they are in stock). I'm not looking to hoard a mountain of mags.....I've got 2 pmags, then 3 of these and if Delta3Tactical ever comes through, I"ll have 3 more pmags.

I love the traditional metal AR mags. They feel a lot better than plastic pmags and slide in and out smoother imo. To make them reliable I just replace the followers with Magpul ones. You can get GI mags from military people. 5 bucks a pop and then 4 dollars for Magpul followers. I also repainted all of mine black so they look brand new.
