A Magpul rep told my local store that three years of production already in the supply stream has been sold. He said if the government allows new production, expect prices to double.
Of course, at a street price of about $15-20, Magpul has always been a steal, and will remain so, even if prices double. Meanwhile, the government will destroy a few million Magpuls bought by our troops with their own money, because they value that magazine over the GI stuff.
While everybody else was buying up the few remaining guns (mostly "defensive shotguns") and ammo, I decided to stock up on brand-name handgun mags at current prices. While I usually buy extra good magazines for my handguns when I see them on sale, I figured this was a golden opportunity to buy them at current sane prices. Even if I have plenty already, at least I won't be kicking myself for missing the chance of buying more at the normal price.
Magpul's warning that they will double their prices if the government allows them to stay in business will be the SOP for other companies, too.
I don't really need much but I was thinking about getting some mags and other things that aren't the focus of this buying spree too. As far as what I want a Saiga 12 ga would really hit the spot but I don't think any are available right now and the prices are outrageous. These cur dog pols have accomplished raising prices through the roof without enacting a single law. Temporarily anyway.
