Default Magazine order from Brownell's

On January 7 I ordered several 30 round mags from Brownell's. Some for me, some for a friend. Just got an email today that they had shipped.

Now for the kicker: they're charging me $2.50 LESS per mag than the January price.

That was unexpected!

Oh sure, the pmags I ordered for a LEO buddy of mine from USCAV on December 18th still haven't shipped.

I will NOT delete that order though. I think they just want me to delete it, because they sold them for $8.99 back then, and have to stick with that price!

What kind of mags?

Between 12/23/12 and 01/15/13 I'd placed four orders:

-10 M3 Windowed PMAGs - delivered but sent M2 non-windowed - they did correct overage

-10 Brownells USGI 30s with MP followers and Rangerplates - delivered

-25 Brownells USGI 30s with green followers - delivered

-50 Brownells USGI 30s with MP followers - still waiting

There seems to have been quite a bit of movement on the 30s with MP followers lately so I'm hoping I might see them soon - I ordered them on 01/08 so your shipment gives me a bit more hope.

Ordered 11 non window pmags on Dec 21. I haven't heard anything other than my order was one of 300 that got mixed up. I am still waiting. Its funny how several other sites have/had Pmags in stock and no one is posting that brownells is filling their Pmag orders. I guess I will be surprised when they ship.

Good luck guys, thats a long bumpy road with no warning signs.

There are several LGS in my area that have them sitting on shelves and they havent moved much at all.

I'll bet it is the price. How much are they asking ? They jumped from around $15.00 to a high of $30.00 and none to be found around here. I bought a boat load last year for under $12.00 with an add-on order before all this happened. Glad I did.

One store highest was $29.99. Several other stores have them in $17-$22 range. Depending on Gen2 or Gen3 and also window or non window. A few months back they were like ARs and couldnt be found. Now they are like ARs, all over the shelves down here.

So I'dsay in your area,they are catching up. That's not a "horrifying" price. Not great.. but they are there. I did notice on some Gen3,they left the "cap" off. Said the new ones don't need them. I kinda liked them. Not that I'd be saving any if things "got too busy".
