I just ordered 10 of them from Tapco. I hope that is a pretty good deal.
Link Posted: 9/13/2005 11:51:37 AM EDT
It is an excellent deal.
Link Posted: 9/13/2005 12:26:37 PM EDT
Sounds good to me.

I got mine for $15.

Course, I only got 5 of them.

Where are you seeing that price at?

How do you get the hot list price? I got the e-mail but when I click the link, the price is back to 14.99.

IF you blow up the pic it shows the "LEO/RESTRICTED" mark. Who knows it could be an old pic from the last time they were selling them. IIRC the new D&H mags have a marked floor plate w/ only the date on the mag.
Send them an email or ask when you call to place your order.

Edit: Received an e-mail saying mags have shipped. So far, so good.
Link Posted: 9/14/2005 4:08:56 PM EDT
Someone let me know when they get theirs. Id like to hear what they look like.

Ordered 5 myself. Heard good things about those mags.

Roger that, I'll post some pix when they show up.
Link Posted: 9/14/2005 5:27:47 PM EDT
I ordered 4, I'm flat broke or would have done more. Will post a pic as well when I get them in.
Link Posted: 9/14/2005 5:35:18 PM EDT
I placed an order for 10 this morning. I got an e-mail later that said they would ship in 7-10 days....even though I think I remember another thread about this deal that said November 15 as earliest delivery.....I'm not sure either way.

I also sent them an e-mail asking if they were marked LEO/Mil only but I haven't got a reply yet. I will report back when I do. I don't really care, but I was just curious......I thought it might give an idea as to how long they've had these suckers.....hence the price.
Link Posted: 9/14/2005 5:48:47 PM EDT
Ordered mine from Bravo Company for $12.95ea. For $2 extra I know what I'm getting and when I'm getting it.
Link Posted: 9/14/2005 6:28:19 PM EDT
I dont know why people would question them.. Tapco sold a shit load to members here after the AWB expired and everyone was very happy with them... They are the same D&H teflon mags that sell on the EE..


Tapco is also a board sponser.
Link Posted: 9/14/2005 6:49:03 PM EDT
A lot of people badmouth TAPCO but they seem like an ok company to me. Some of their stuff is cheesy but certainly not all of it.
Link Posted: 9/14/2005 6:57:51 PM EDT
thanks for the heads up. i bought 7.
Link Posted: 9/15/2005 12:35:24 AM EDT
Ordered 10.

D+H good.

Hope these are as advertised. Think so.

The ad says this, which indicates to me that they are LEO marked:

"There are no longer any marking requirements for semiautomatic assault weapons and large capacity ammunition feeding devices. Existing markings on firearms and magazines relating to law enforcement or government use may be disregarded."

State and local laws restricting the sale of these magazines remain in effect.

I would pay 2 bucks extra apiece for:

"Citizen Only" marked mags.

Stupid old me.

Update:

Just received an e-mail and Tara McElroy says the floorplates are the only thing marked.....which is no big deal to me......YMMV.

So has anyone got their mags yet? I'm curious to see if these mags are as advertised.
Link Posted: 9/16/2005 10:07:36 AM EDT
I ordered 10 last night. I will let you know how they are when they arrive.
Link Posted: 9/16/2005 12:04:13 PM EDT
I just got mine and they are brand new with only the base plate saying for LE only.
Link Posted: 9/17/2005 7:58:43 PM EDT
AHhhhhhhhhhhh! Why did I open this link??

I couldn't pass them up at this price. I've actually ordered these same mags from TAPCO back at the end of the ban last year. They are the real deal and had LEO/Military Only on the side. From what people have posted, these are the same mags only without the marking on the side of the magazine. The price has gone down. When I bought them after the end of the ban last year they were $11.99 each.

Thanks for the heads up bookertbab. I did get the 'hotlist' the other day but didn't check it carefully enough.

I rather like the LEO markings. Gives me a warm fuzzy feeling every time I see it on a privately owned mag/rifle.
Link Posted: 9/18/2005 5:05:23 AM EDT
Yeah I was kinda wondering why people don't want LE marked mags. It doesn't matter, afterall. Or does it just fall under the elitist cosmetics of the general AR population? On a tangent, I've noticed every time someone tries to mention a new product, or a less common one, they're put down quite quickly, by almost everyone. This is true of optics, rails, parts, everything. If you people keep discouraging every new product that hasn't been battle proven, nothing will get battle proven...

How much do they charge for shipping? Also does Tapco allow you to pick up orders at their location? I will be driving through there in a couple of weeks.

Standard shipping (7-10 day) was $5.95 for the 10 I ordered, which is pretty fair.
Dunno about FTF.
Link Posted: 9/18/2005 2:48:04 PM EDT
$6.95 for the 6 I ordered. Standard delivery, USPS. Don't wait too long, I'm finding these good deals are dissapearing faster than 18 year old virgins these days.

I just ordered 10 of them.

So, it's official. Mags are now cheaper than the ammo they contain. (assuming xm193)

not quite yet.

going rate for xm193 is ~$200/1000, which is .20 each.

$.20 x 30 = $6.00

These mags are double that if you add in shipping.. Nice bluff though

Ordered Wed. 9/14 and got them before lunch on Mon. 9/19

Mags are great....all are stamped 6/05 on the body and the LE only is on the floorplates......price has gone up since I got 'em though.

ETA: All the mags are marked 6/05, but I noticed that the floorplates are stamped in different directions. Some read headstamp to bullet tip while some read bullet tip to headstamp.......

Oh yeah.....teflon mags for $10.50 shipped kicks serious ass.
Link Posted: 9/19/2005 10:03:16 AM EDT
Well damn, it looks like I missed out on the $11 mags. The price still shows $11 until you put them in your basket. There the price shown is $14.99.

Are you sure? I just tried it and still got the $11 price.
Link Posted: 9/19/2005 6:18:40 PM EDT
I got $14.99 a couple of times and then it went back to $11. Must me a glitch. I think if you look there's a discount code that goes in when they show up at $11. Try that when you check out if they still show up at $15 and see if that knocks the price down.
Link Posted: 9/20/2005 10:35:04 AM EDT
I would order some if I had the funds. Like the look of the vertical grip they have though.
