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.

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.

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.

In the fwiw department, I just got back from the Walmart in Lutz FL. There was one 22, one 243, and one 20 ga.

There was no ammo. Zero, zip, nada.

Methinks the American people are preparing for something...

5.56mm

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.
