Another options for AR15 mags

Wideners has Aluminum 20 and 30 rounds mags in stock, they are made by D&H industries and are well reviewed. This is your friendly heads up.

At least they are available. I don't need any at the moment so will not buy at these prices.

I'm gonna wait and hope the supply catches up with the demand later this year. If it does not, then I guess I'll buy the 10 rounders -

$24 each? No thank you.

Glad I snagged some extra PMags for $12 each right as this craziness began.

Mako is still selling the (superior?) E-Lander mags for $18 apiece.

Captain Obvious has way too many followers these days, some people got in early, I understand. I was 11 back in 1994 so I have a unique perspective on people talking about what things used to cost.

Perhaps hindsight will reveal that a $12 price increase isn't so bad, or perhaps it won't.

A better option is to wait for Brownell's to restock with their own magazines.
These come in 20 and 30 rounds and with your choice of stainless or silicone springs.
Brownell's won't scalp you on the price and their mags are good enough they are or were sold to the government on a GI contract.

$8 each for the same mags at the end on last November. I'm glad I picked up two dozen.

If guys are patient, You can still find good deal on mags. I picked up 4 30rd Pmags for 15 bucks a piece. Good deals are out there.

Unless I'm missing something, everything on the PSA website in the AR-15 mag section says out of stock.

If you notice, I posted that last night. You have to strike while the iron is hot as they say, these things don't last long.

No kidding. I posted less than 2 hours after you posted they were in stock. These things go quick.

D&H were formerly known as La Belle industries who were a USGI magazine manufacturer. Same company, same equipment, same mags just a different name on the building.
