If we can get a good deal, I'm in for some. I need quite a few magpuls(25-40), but a bulk buy could net us a better price. Black, OD or Camo(or a mix) would be good. Anyone(Castle Arms, AR15.com?) want to check this out? Juggernaut

While you're at it, could you ask about .308 and 9mm MagPuls as well?

Count me in. Email me if it takes off. I always have a problem seeing tacked up stuff.

I'd try it. Go to their site. Get the product number and color. Mail me the above and quanity info. I'd go to them with the "order" for pricing and get back to those that ordered. Not sure if that's the way to do it aa but would welcome any input. It would be money up front. plus shipping. I'd have to figure out shipping as we go. USPS or UPS. USPS is the best for me. Let me know what you think. I don't want to make any moola on this but I don't want to lose any and get flamed here. How long should we leave this post up before we act?

I'd be in for about 20 or so. Let me know if it's a go.

Count me in for about 40.

20 for me.

I'm in for 20 Let me know how much. Bulldog OUT

In for 20 as well. I didn't know they had them for .308.

back in my days we used 550/parachute cord to make these!

I've already got an account with Magpul Industries Corp if you guys are serious about this. If yall want to figure out the total number type/quantity Magpuls and anything else I can see what kind of discount they would offer. I would need payment up front for Magpuls/shipping. The best/cheapest way to ship would probably be USPS priority mail w/delivery confirmation. If yall really want to do this I'll help out.

Another thing that yall may be interested in are the AR15 grip kits. You can see them on the Magpul web page. I haven't seen these things first hand yet, but I've got a shipment on the way with some included that should be here Monday or Tuesday that I can tell yall about when they arrive. I'm just waiting on their new stocks to come out [:)] This is their new collapsable/telescoping stock. Not a lot of info has been release yet, but it is currently in the first stages of production. It would look mighty sweet on something like an AR with a LMG upper.

Forgot to add, I'm in for some subgun Magpuls too, if we can get the price down-I have an Uzi and mags that could use them. Juggernaut
Link Posted: 3/9/2002 6:01:15 PM EDT
Oh yeah, I am in for one of those stocks. Just let me know the price...

Well, they haven't started retail sales yet, but I've been told that it won't be too long now. They are a little pricey with the Carbine version going for around $300 retail with buffer tube and $350 retail for a fixed & carbine stock with one buffer tube. I'm planning on ordering some as soon as they are released. [:)]

Well, While we are on the subject. Magpul does do custom work to, maybe an AR15.com magpul? just an idea. If Magpul needs to be reminded Barrett sold it's first 500 rifles to civilians-Now there a military favorite. Aimpoint was a favorite item in civilian shooting competions- and now the even the fact they use batteries hasn't stopped the military from buying plenty of em. If Magpul Industries was able to get more magpul's out there amongst people who shoot on a regular basis, It would not only help raise the company's profile but it would be a whole lot of free market research and advertising.

I don't really think that this is a problem with Magpul Industries Corp. If any of yall ever get a chance to talk to Richard Fitzpatrick, the owner, you will quickly find out that he is very down to earth and a hell of a nice guy to boot. Plus, they make a great product.

Great idea, I'd be in for 50 Magpulls in either black or green for .223 mags. Please e-mail me if this goes through, so I can make my payment. Thanks. Adrian

Put me in for 25-you got to have goals (this will force me to buy more mags)!
Link Posted: 3/11/2002 1:01:53 PM EDT
What is the big deal about these magpuls ? It looks like a stupid piece of junk IMHO. Besides not seeming like they would really help you change mags faster, don't you then have problems fitting the mags into pouches ?
Link Posted: 3/11/2002 1:08:52 PM EDT
Try some and then see what you think. We used gutted 550 cord and 100mph tape, but these work much better IMHO. They are pretty cheap, so get in on some from the group purchase and then tell all of us what you think.

I kind of thought the same thing when I first saw them, then a dealer friend of mine started selling them at gunshows so I gave them a closer look. Then I bought a few and found out that I really like them. I just got some 9mm ones in today that I'm going to use on my MAC magazines. As cheap as they are you should try a package out and if you really don't like them then you haven't lost much.

Good point. Maybe I will try some.
Link Posted: 3/12/2002 4:38:26 PM EDT
I'm interested in 50 -- if they're in green. I wouldn't mind picking up a few (10 each) in orange or red for range use.
Link Posted: 3/12/2002 6:52:36 PM EDT
Count me in for some also!
Link Posted: 3/12/2002 7:17:10 PM EDT
Count me in too.
Link Posted: 3/12/2002 7:24:37 PM EDT
I could use a few more! Hell if I get enough then I will have to buy more magazines for my new MagPuls, vicious circle! [beer]

I like to use 550 cord because you can snap the empty onto a D-ring on your gear and not lose it if you are hurrying. They also fit in the LBV easier. I would be willing to try these out if they aren't too expensive.

i'd go for a dozen in black
