Posted on 01/12/2013 1:41:11 PM PST by Red in Blue PA
According to the gun review site, "Haus of Guns," backorders for the Magpul AR-15 30-round magazine ("PMAG") have surpassed one million.
In a Facebook post dated today, January 9, Haus of Guns writes the following:
"Had breakfast with a buddy who has reasonably close ties to the Magpul family. Word is the great PMAG panic backorder of 2012/13 has topped 1 million at Magpul HQ."
Magpul is a designer and manufacturer of firearms accessories. The PMAG is one of their most popular products. It is a 30-round magazine designed for the AR-15 semi-automatic rifle.

Only a million? LoL.
why you think the libs want to act on all this yesterday...which splains why they had a “plan” ready to go
And that's just PMAGs. Magpul is located in Boulder, Colorado of all places.
I’m thinking that most of these orders are for additional magazines, meaning this one millions backordered mags are in addition to what’s out there, right?
If my math is up to speed, then one million mags is about 30 million rounds. Coupled with way more than that which is already out there, and by gosh, you got a lot of armed folks out there!
Kind of warms your heart, don’t it?
Will they ever get to manufacture them or sell them? If they manufacture, can they real-time ship to avoid getting caught with a large inventory? You can bet these types of questions are going through the minds of manufacturers of anything Maximum Leader might prohibit.
AR-10’s are also back ordered. Glad that I bought five in November.
Just 1 million? I think that only represents my neighborhood.
I got my mini’s last week. Shop early and often.
Where is your HappyFace?
You can b sure that gun products are going directly from Manufacturing to Shipping right now, and spending no time on the shelf. It might not make sense for them to spend money to buy more manufacturing equipment, given future uncertainties, but I would guess there's a lot of overtime being paid.
Watch the #s go up following this post..
I just canceled a LARGE order of 30 & 40 rnd mags from Bushmaster, placed Christmas Eve. They still can’t give any ship or delivery dates, and if the hi-cap ban hits, it’ll be worthless anyway. I have “plenty” on-hand, from summer and fall shipments, pre-hysteria.
O’Dingo is losing this fight. Call your Senators and let them know exactly where you stand. The US federal government is a force of oppression.
I haven’t checked senatorfeinstein.com yet. LOL!
There was no ammo. Zero, zip, nada.
Methinks the American people are preparing for something...
Nothing about mag there, yet. They’re just getting “warmed-up” at that new website, and it looks promising. Late to the fight, but promising.
