I think that we have shown a willingness to pay out the nose for 11+ rd mags over the past 10 years. Sooooo, if I was Glock, when I started selling the 15 rounders, etc, I sure ain't gonna give em away. They see thousands and thousands of customers only too willing to spend spend spend. I bet they go for more than they have been selling LEO mags these last few years.

should be at around LEO prices.....they may jump momentarily right after the sunset b/c of high demand.

I don't see them doing much of a jump. Manufactures have been making "full cap" mags all along and selling them to LE/Military, all they have to do is sell them to us for the same price and they'll make a killing. If they do raise the prices I'll just bide my time and wait for the price to come down to something reasonable.

I would think after the swarm on hi-cap mags is over, they would be a little lower than current LEO mags are due to greater consistant production numbers.

The phrase "Don't shit where you eat" comes to mind. There is no logical reason for a standard capacity magazine to cost any more than a 10 rounder does now.

The reason why LEO mags are the price that they are is there is not really a market for them so they have to raise the price just to make a profit. Once all the dust settles they should drop below LEO prices. Id say NIW USGI's will be $9-$10 a piece

I see the price on domestic 30 rounders being $13+... no lower.

They know what we'll pay.... and we'll pay it.

I'm thinking that NIB AR mags will sell for around $12-15/mag. It'd be nice if they'd start making some NIB 20 rnd. mags for the AR's.

True, but "only" Glock "makes" factory Glock mags. So for factory mags, there is no competition. I think they will go a few bucks more than what LEO pays now, at least for a year or so, then maybe when the new wears off, they will settle down. If JFK gets elected, they will stay up there for a while, since no telling what the demonrats will try to do.

under LEO prices

Hell, anything will be better than the gouging we are getting right now. I'm curious to see how long it takes for them to get the LEO markings out of their molds and stamps.

I have no idea really what will happen after the ban is lifted. Jerk wads at shows may still act stupid.

That is more like it...

I say for the first year we will see a very small drop in price, but not much.

I dont think it would take that long atleast for firearms that are made overseas ie glock,H&K sig etc.

I think they will be about the same price. I expect some dealers will try to jam it to people right after the ban ends though

I Think at first, exeryone should brace themselves for Maximum A$$ Raping Action. After the initial rush, things should taper off a bit.
