To all those waiting on your Labelle G.I. mags from Lauer Custom Weaponry, all I can say is, hang in there!
I ordered mine from the Lauer web site (NOT from the Labelle thread here) late on Aug. 31. I just received them today (Sept. 12). I was starting to get a bit itchy yesterday and checked the Lauer web site and saw a message that said, essentially, don't call or e-mail, all orders wil be shipped out by Sept. 19. I guess they've been overrun with requests for these high-quality mags.
I'll briefly describe the packaging and mags
(I got 5).
They came via UPS Ground in a plain, corrugated cardboard box. Nothing on the outside indicated what could be inside.
The mags are each wrapped individually in heavy, clear plastic. On the wrapper, from top top bottom in black ink, is:
(UPC bar code)
Magazine Assembly 30 Rd. 5.56MM
Contract Number DAAA09-87-C-0015
Labelle Industries, Inc.
Oconomowoc, Wisconsin 53066
further down the plastic wrapper it says:
Rikart Mfg. Inc.
Type I Class B Style 2
(I assume this is the manufacturer of the plastic wrapper?)
The mags are as advertised: brand new, 30 rds., grey teflon finish, green plastic follower. The baseplate is black metal and reads: La Belle Ind. Ocnomowoc, WI. U.S.A. MFG 90435.
EDIT: Uh, kind of like the ones pictured in the Labelle mags thread h.gif .... but these are mine!
