    Things at the physical storefront have slowed down a bit. They said backorders remained high through Feb and have plummeted in March. For those interested, they have over 9000 ARC mags on-hand as well as some stripped lowers (one DPMS AR10) but that was at 10am. Also chatted with Magpul and they said they are literally shipping thousands of PMAGs to Brownells, RSR, and DSG Arms; those are the three biggest distributors for Magpul.

    Unfortunately, I showed up too late and couldn't pick up the 550 PMAGs that are now on their way to my house.

    I sell them on the side. Have already sold about 1500 in a month. And no, I'm not gouging; charging normal/pre-election prices.

    Yes however kits do cost a bit more due to the time spent disassembling and then re-packing. Send me a PM of what you want and I'll quote you.

    He could be buying them at retail and jacking up the price.

    Now that would be a shitty thing to do. Stupid too since it would be unsustainable.

    I don't care either way, just curious.

    Some guy had like a billion pmags in his hallway.

    400 of my 550 were a huge backorder I placed in Febuary. The other 150 were various colors, windowed and non, to replish my inventory. I typically don't like to have more than 50 of any one type on-hand. Thankfully, of the 400 black "M" that shipped, half are already sold.

    The best businesses who are going to thrive after this are guys like you or Brownells and some other small guys. not getting in on all this bullshit jack up prices. manufacturers aren't charging more. the gougers are going to loose customers when this is all over

    The one instance where my price is higher than retail is for repair kits but that's to reflect my time in disassembling and re-packing. The markets that I've entered and sold repair kits have experienced a 20%+ reduction in cost since I started selling. It wasn't unusal for a kit to for $25-$30 before I showed up. I know I've chased at least one gouger from the market and I've forced another to reduce their price to near mine.
