Magpul Industries Corp. Facebook Announcement
Magpul Industries Inc. Facebook Page ^ | 2/26/13 | Magpul

Posted on 02/26/2013 6:39:44 PM PST by kitchen

We are proud to announce that within a matter of days we will be going live with a new program. Due to a bill currently moving through the Colorado legislature, there is the possibility that Colorado residents' ability to purchase standard capacity magazines will soon be infringed. Before that happens, and Magpul is forced to leave the state in order to keep to our principles, we will be doing our... best to get standard capacity PMAGs into the hands of any Colorado resident that wants them.

Verified Colorado residents will be able to purchase up to ten (10) standard capacity AR/M4 magazines directly from Magpul, and will be given immediate flat-rate $5 shipping, bypassing our current order queue.

Our customers outside of Colorado, please know that our PMAG production will continue at an ever-increasing rate until we do relocate, shipments to our distributors in other states will continue, and that we do not expect relocation to significantly impact PMAG production. We are also aware that Colorado is not the only state with existing or pending magazine capacity restrictions; we are working on programs for other affected states as well.

Full details and instructions will be announced when we are able to go live; please watch here for the coming announcement.

This is all they've got up at this point. Nothing on their website.

Don't sleep on this.

Speaking of guns... what else would be a good buy for someone who has a 12-guage pump, a 410/.45 Circuit Judge (5-shot revolver rifle/shotgun), a Marlin 30-30 lever action..

and what else should I buy??

I am thinking for cheap practice ammo a 22- but that just seems too small... maybe handy to have for keeping the rodent population down - i would not be against tryingf some rabbit stew too....

What is bigger than a .22 but still has cheap ammo you you dont feel guilty about firing off a couple hundred rounds?

Nothing modern comes to mind, but you could buy an old Mosin Nagant and score some Soviet Bloc MilSup 7.62 x 54R ammo.

A Ruger 10-22 and several magazines. CCI's Stinger ammunition will do fine for serious work and you can practice and have fun with cheaper ammo. All .22 Long Rifle ammo will function through it flawlessly.

Brownells for one. They continued to accept backorders beyond what they typically sell in a year.

Don't have any idea how long it would take to produce that run.

My advice is: a Ruger 10-22. It’s an absolutely essential, gots to have, no household should be without one, rifle.

Where are you going to find CCI Stinger ammo at this point? I’m still betting that the ammo bubble its going to burst at least one more time before any serious ammunition laws are passed.

Awesomeness. Perhaps this will make clear to legislatures they are, as one figure put it, awakening a sleeping dragon. Inspiring a great big “F U” in residents does not bode well when it involves serious firepower. Give up arms? Residents are stocking up and looking for a fight to begin.

Well said. Excellent small game rifle (and even larger game if you can get a clean head shot) and is decent for home defense. Get you a few BX-25s (or the new BX-25 doubles) and you can put a lot of rounds on target really fast for cheap! (Well cheaper than a lot of other higher caliber ammo none of it is "Cheap" nowadays)

Yes. I do believe Magpul has assured their business for at least a couple of decades. People will remember this.

I was a Magpul customer before the chaos and probably will be all my life. Not many companies I can say that about.

Excellent.

I guess I have double standards. I have called for other gun related businesses to leave their home states based on new laws or pending legislation and to stop all sales to government and citizens wanting their products.

I chalk this up to a liberal climate that has always existing in some states. I think CO is getting blindsided by this one. Probably too many immigrates from CA.

I just found some 410 ammo at Walmart (during one of my rare visits there) at FIFTEEN DOLLARS FOR A BOX OF 25!!!, I don't know what prices are like elsewhere but for Kansas that is pretty damn steep!

I remember when I was a young lad, back in 2009 I could find the same box for like 6 bucks. O.M.G!

10/22s are still hard to find except those $400+ BSA models. I can also recommend the Henry Lever action and Spee-D-Loader.

I was talking to a guy who just spent north of $100 for a box of 1600 rounds of .22. Not so long ago, I would buy the “milk carton” of 400 rounds for $8.

I’m glad I reload centerfire cartridges. ...although I’m worried about the availability of primers.

Everyone should own a .22.

A former co worker of mine, who owned about every kind of rifle, pistol and shot gun known to man, once told me that he was going to buy a b.b. gun, I asked him why and he said, "you never know when you might need one".

It was simple target shot.

And that was the ONLY type they had, they only had like 5 boxes and it's the only 410 Ammo I have been able to buy for 7 weeks.

It's crazy.

I noticed walmarts gun racks were exactly like Cabelas, empty except for really expensive turkey guns and a 7mm Rifle or something.

The silliness of all this just struck me.

If Colorado passes a law restricting magazine capacity, are they going to set up roadblocks at the Wyoming (and other)state lines to keep Coloradoans from importing large capacity magazines? Will they actually undertake inspections?

Good luck FINDING that cheap .22lr...

Last Thurs. a.m. I spent almost an hour, in 20 degree weather, waiting outside, in a line waiting for Gander Mtn. to open.
They have always been the best around here for bulk ammo purchases.
There were 20+ people in front of me, and 40 or more behind me.
When they opened at 9 (the clerk told me a week b4 they recived ammo on Wed. stocked it that night)
When they opened, people RAN into that store straight to the ammo shelves.
Some grabbed baskets, and just swept the ammo off the shelves (.22 and .223)
They didnt even check the price.

This in a town beside the biggest army base in N.C....

I will probably take them up on this offer. I have enough mags to cover the basics, but if the offer is too good to pass up...

If they go to Texas or better yet Arizona who knows, I might even relocate too.

What if I take my AR-15 up to Wyoming, then come back into the State? Do I have to prove I had the mags on the way up, pre-ban? What if my son is coming down out of Wyoming for some target practice with me and brings his mags?

No possible way, absolutely none, of enforcing this. Have you seen the Rocky mountains and the borderlands between Colorado and its neighboring States? The ban would be utterly meaningless and impossible to enforce.

They should be expediating the sales of higher caps than that to the residents of CO, CT and other states that are about to go over the edge.

I would say that that would give the residents a one-up in values, but I think these people will be the first to physically say “No.” They need our support. I have already offered my out-of-state support to these people wherever I can.

Hope they are seriously thinking about moving to Texas. Bringing new meaning to GTT (Gone to Texas).

I read that Wyoming was the favored move, due to the proximity of that state line to the current facility and the employees' homes. It would keep more of their current staff on the payroll, which is certainly laudable.

But hey, ya never know. If the Texas offer was serious, it probably included a temporary employee housing package. We shall see.

“My advice is: a Ruger 10-22. It’s an absolutely essential, gots to have, no household should be without one, rifle.”

I managed to find a Ruger 10-22 about a month ago by searching every day. And, if you haven't read it yet, it is PINK. I found a 25 cartridge magazine for it before I found the rifle. Then, had to search every day until I found CCI Mini Mag HP for one day on CheaperThanDirt. I'm glad I have it all together now. If a bad guy comes in my house, he'll see a PINK rifle looking at him and then he won't see anything after that. I consider that my assault rifle because a bullet comes out every time I pull the trigger and can pull it 25 times before it quits.

“Where are you going to find CCI Stinger ammo at this point?”

I have a list of every company that sells ammo in my favorites list and check them every day. That’s how I found the CCI Stingers one day about three weeks ago or less at CheaperThanDirt. They had them, I ordered them, and the next evening there were none left to buy.
