    Default Magazine shortage?

    I have been searching high and low for some 15 rd mags for my M&P 40 FS and everyone says "OUT OF STOCK". I finally broke down and ordered 6 of them from Cabela's. Even there the wait is 3 weeks for the back order. Is this typical or have people just been stocking up on them because they fear a ban coming because of the recent AZ. shootings?
    I have two guns, one for each of ya.

    I have been finding the same thing while looking for my M&P 9 Pro. There seems to be NO 17rd mags anywhere to be found.

    I ordered some thru Botach Tactical on Dec 30th.....just emailed them and they said they have no idea when they will have them in stock so I cancelled the order.


    Anyone else have a line on high-cap mags?

    OK so I just checked a web site. it says they have 59 S&W M&P40/.357 fullsize mags in stock for 24.99 each. they say they are factory new 15 rd. S&W mags..

    Unfotunatly they are backordered on the 9MM fullsize 17 rounders. Sorry JohnUSCG

    Now this web site has also been out of the 40/.357 compacts for a LONG time now.

    Get ordering...here is the link...

    Yup. I have 6.8SPC mags on order and was told the other day they will not be available until around May/June.

    I thought to stock up on Browning Hi-power mags and was shocked at the price, $43 each. I would have ordered aftermarket mags but my experience has been they suck. So I bit the bullet and ordered 5....ouch!

    I know you said that your experience with aftermkt mags is that they suck, but the Argentine ones are contract mags and might be worth a try @ $17.



    Anyway, my H&K mags are always hard to find a deal on, but I have still been picking up some S&W 59 mags for my Daewoo on the cheap.

    Thanks for that link, 39Flathead.

    I did see the Argetinian mags before but had not heard any positive reviews. Now that I have sunk over $200 in Browning mags I will probably get a couple extra of the Argentines.


    The Pro-mags suck the worst and the Mec-gar mags were unreliable.
