    Default Shady FFL Practices? Stealing Magazines?

    I noticed a local shop was selling the VP9 (LE Version with Night sights and 3 mags) but their version only had 2 magazines.


    What is going on here? Every other shop that has the LE Version come standard with 3 magazines. Do you think they are stealing the 3rd magazine to resell to people? Their price on the package is $770 dollars LOL I don't mind paying more to support a local PA FFL, but if you are scamming people by removing the 3rd magazine.........


    Anyone else notice this?

    I have on occasion seen this. You should ask them where the mags are. What will it hurt? You’re not buying from them anyway.

    I bet the number of magazines included is listed somewhere in the literature that comes with the gun.Imagine the glee of the customers who come across the descrepancy after they have forked over all that cash!

    CDNN has them in FDE for $100 less, free shipping, and you get all three mags.

    Not all trades will have all the original mags. Usually beat up mags needing new springs and followers.
