So why are PMAG's in high demand?

They've been making them for a while but only over the past 5 or 6 months did they become scarce. What's the deal?

Eveyone likes them. They are cheap. I have 5 on backorder. I went with them for cost and im not a big fan of the flimsy metal mags.

What you might call solitude is something i look forward to.

I'd say it's the fact that they're the best damn magazine on the market. Me and Honneur05 spent a couple hours one afternoon trying to break one.... needless to say the only thing that broke was the clip for the magazine cover. We sent them pics of what broke and they sent a new magazine.

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

Beats me.

A magazine is a magazine. Personally I think because they're going threw a fad and paranoia.

those with Obamanoia (Obama Paranoia ) fear that the sale of mags over 10 rounds will be outlawed is why all magazines are flying off the shelves.

Shit you can get them for half that online.

I just bought some steel mags from a bin. They don't look nice, but they function fine. Plus I got them for $15 and I didn't have to wait a month to get them.

I do like pmags though. I might pick some up when the craziness ends.
