Correct. Given the craze, I found it surprising they have these in stock and ordered 5 of em.

Decent part/price?

It's a standard Pmag. Based on current pricing, it's good (I wouldn't have said that three weeks ago).

You should be fine with most of the ammunition listed. I would still try a box or two first before buying bulk quantities to ensure that your AR cycles it correctly. Cabella's is typically going to be higher in price on most things, ammunition included. But again, in this environment, all bets are off.

Gotcha. I can't imagine that the potential "ban" would include banning the sale of all 5.56 ammo so I'm not too worried about the prices of those and will hold off bulk purchases till things calm down. Magazines though I am not confident we'll have them a year from now.. and if any legislation is actually proposed banning them, the prices will skyrocket. Right now, it's all speculation but once something is actually in motion, heaven help us all.

Sportsmans Guide has a great price on PMC X tac, 1000round back ordered out pretty far but still orderable. I'm toying with the idea of that,glock mags,or another rifle. I unfortunately can't afford it all at once. My hopes are that ammo will always be available,but guns and mags will need to be owned before a potential ban.

That is a great price...but May 6th? Holy shit. I will have forgotten that I ordered it by then.

Hmm...can't seem to be able to backorder it. Maybe the mobile version of the site doesn't allow it?
ETA: Couldn't back order it from the regular site either, just a notification.

It's only if you sign up or have for the cabela's VISA card. They are running the promo till 4/30/13, "clubfive" is the code if you use your cabela's VISA card. Otherwise it would have been $17 shipping for 10 pmags. For new card applicants you get $20 off your whole purchase. I currently don't have any CC debt, so might as well build my credit a bit and save on this purchse as well.

Yes, it was in red text near the bottom of the screen where you would add it to the cart.

I have never seen a Gen 3 pmag in real life. Shouldnt a significant supply of these be released at some point? Magpul said they were set up to manufacture both lines of them at the same time. The vendor from ARcom bait and switched me to the Gen2s. Where the hell are the Gen3's!? In a wharehouse being stored untill they can really jack the price?

Probably being sent out to the military and law enforcement first. Then they will go out for other distribution?
