HERE it is and yeah its stupid out there. But if you can legally make a buck from someone else stupidity, then I see nothing wrong with it. This guy just had what a few people want. More power to him. At the gun store Friday I was in shooting the XDm, and a guy was looking for 30 rd AR mags. All the store had was USGI used mags at 6-7 a piece. The guy said, please tell me you have Pmags. Ill pay double or more. I head that and said I had 5 to sell. What would he offer. He gave me $230 for 5 since 2 had ranger pull things. I have like 40 more plus a few boxs of Cproducts and a few beta, so I am not worried about depleating my stock. But DAM!!!!! There is a frenzy out there.

A coworker put it in a nice phrase yesterday. If they want to limit the modern weapons (since assualt is not necessarly true), they should have never let Obama get into office.

I'm not faulting the sellers. But the buyers? I'll say it again, "more money than brains". And 46 bucks per for PMags, that guy was a fool. How does it go? A fool and his money..........

I wish my FFL had USGI for 6-7 a mag. I do not even like the Sig rail, I am going to wait and hope Sampson puts out one for the pistol.

I have a personal philosophy of never selling a gun.  I'll even take pieces of crap for $20.00 just to experiment with them.  But this is insane - I may just have to rethink things.

Eternal, they were used. Several were WELL used. And yeah this guy had ALOT more money than brains. Took his number, and told him I would call him in 10 minutes to meet at a grocery store. He rolls up in a H2 SUT (the truck thing) with the biggest dam rims and smallest tires I have ever seen. Guess he bought 2 RRAs at the shop that day.

Typically I would feel bad, but there are those out there just asking.....

I should list my IMI Galil 308 ARM for 10 grand and see what happens. Unreal.

I wonder if purchasing all those firearms in such a short time flags the ATF (Face-to-Face purchases aside), or whether they are just shugging their shoulders at the whole thing since it seems to be a nationwide phenomenon.

The later I would think. I mean they are presumably all legit FFL sourced transactions afterall.

At this point, I doubt ATF would take notice until an individual was buying by the cargo container-load.

It's because of the rail. Sig is doing a very, very limited run that have the rail.  Price is still to high, but that's part of the reason.

$46.00 per mag?    Holy Christ!  People are out of their minds.

I paid wholesale for mine but that's the great part about being a dealer.

Hey CS, you may already know, but if you have that suppressor mounted on the factory Sig AAC copy QD mount do NOT fire it like that, the mounts are out of spec. I made a thread about it in the suppressor section not too long ago, confirmed with AAC. It's already caused at least one incident.

No worries.  It's a AAC mount.  The pistol came with a standard A2 FH.
