Probably can forget about it...
I had ordered some P-Mags that day, and they showed in stock and I got a confirmation email, and order number...

Not having heard anything, and no charge on the card, I called today.

Seems they had " a trillion" orders that day, and it literally caused their server to crash, and many orders were lost...Mine was one of them.

They re-ordered, but refused to put my order back in place where it should have been- I'm at the back of the line. Not good CS in my opinion, but at least they haven't raised their prices.

Just a heads up for any of you that might have placed an order that day- you'd best call and check if you haven't received anything.

I almost ordered some from S&W around that time, but Brownells price was so much better that I back ordered some through them. May take awhile to get them but I paid pre-insanity prices, so I'm happy.

I received an email from S&W telling me the same thing. Luckily, I didn't really need the mags, but I kind of would have liked to receive the short 10 rounder for my M&P 15-22. It would be much nicer for shooting off the bench than the 25 rounders. I agree, though, kind of poor customer service, but given the volumes of orders they are receiving right now, it is understandable.

Why the heck would you order P-Mags from S&W? There are far better, higher-volumn and lower-priced distributors for those. Midway, Brownells Cabelas, etc all come to mind. Of course, nobody's got any right now....

The M&P 15-22 mags I could understand...

He ordered from them because they had them in stock at the time.

They had em for $19.99 when I ordered dec 2X (sometime after xmas) but before the 30th. Hope mine is not affected, ordered 2 plus one 17rnd 9mm for my M&P.

I will have to call to speak w/ someone, called a few days and got automated response that all orders are on back order. Im content with waiting, but having the ordered canceled would be another story.

I ordered 5 PMAGS before xmas from USCav, 15.99 (with window), just says its on back order, now website doesnt even list the products when searching, even when using their product ID.

They can't put your order where you claim it was. By tomorrow every forum on the net will have a thread like this if they don't already. Everyone would be calling saying theirs was one of the orders lost.

Of course, you do have a confirmation number... Why don't you post it and I'll see what I can do with it :)
