Not sure how long the sale will last, but Gen 3 Magpul AK mags for $14.99 is the best price I have ever seen. Usually they are $25-28.

Back around new year’s they were $15 @ Midway. I agree, excellent price and excellent mags.

they're not circle 10s, but at that price they are a good viable alternative for polymer AK mags... helluva lot better than their Gen 1's

They've been that price for a few days now. They finally put it in a sale email, looks like. I placed a big order with them earlier this week for a bunch of Magpul slings and adapters (birthday pricing - yay!), and I saw the mags on sale then.

If I wasn't sitting on a pile of steel milsurp mags, I would get some. They could convince me to overstock and get some if they were more like $10 each.

Don’t look now but they are 12.99.
Link Posted: 3/20/2018 10:04:56 PM EDT
Oh wow, you are right. $12.99 is closer to the breaking point for me. I may get some if they shoot out a free shipping code in the next few days. Shipping to my house costs nearly as much as another mag.

And there's the free shipping code via email.

Ok, fine, I'll get a dozen then.

Down to $12.99

Hit enough for free shipping at this price.

Anyone have a free shipping code?
Link Posted: 3/25/2018 12:35:20 AM EDT
My free shipping code expired while I was waiting for my other parts to come back in stock.

Shouldn't need code if you buy over $99 worth.

ETA: Don't forget to pick up M855 IMI!!!!!!

If I add 12 to my cart ($155.88), it shows almost $11 shipping. I don't get free shipping.

Free shipping must have went away.

Add this to your cart and it should knock shipping down.

The magpul mags don't qualify for free shipping or the current 10, 20, or 30 dollar discount promotion.

When you buy AK mags at midway you need to be careful about what you're actually getting.

They were wrongly representing plastic commercial manufacture Bulgarian Magazines with steel reinforced feed lips made by ISD, as being military surplus when they are not.

I wrote a review explaining that fact and suddenly, they're now "limited production no longer available" although they're also "new arrivals".

I just picked up some of the magpul gen 3 and Arsenal waffle mags.

The ones with the bad review... I wonder if your review and that guy from Nebraska's review combined sunk the notion of them carrying those. Like, "wow, barely got these and already bad reviews - don't buy any more, or we may get stuck with them!"

My review concerned the fact that Midway was clearly misrepresenting those commercial magazines made in Bulgaria by ISD, as being military surplus, something their ad went out of its way to do.

They're 9-15 bucks elsewhere where they aren't being misrepresented as milsurp.

If they're stuck with them it's their own fault for falsely labeling them as being something they are not.

I don't know why you got the notion they were military surplus. It's only referenced on the page like 6 times - hardly noticeable, I'd say.

The PMAGs are still $12.99. I hope they stay that price. We need decently-priced US-made mags with steel reinforcements as a market option. $25 each put them outside my threshold of interest.

I've been paying 12 bucks apiece for the all plastic gen 1s and own a lot of them but they're only trustworthy as range mags or as an emergency item IMO.

The gen 3s have been selling for 29 bucks around here so I've picked up some from Midway at the reduced price since they're a nice step above the gen 1 and I'd trust them if I had to.

I prefer plastic mags for range use because they're lighter than my metal mags.

I ordered a few Arsenal Circle 10 mags as well, primarily for use in home defense.
