AR-15 30 Round Magazine Price Gouging - Where’s the Outrage?
Scooter Oi notes that the price of a used 30 round AR-15 magazine has reached $129.97, and asks the following.
Seriously? Do these come with solid gold followers or something? Or a 48 oz. ribeye and a bottle of Dominus?
If used 30 round AR-15 magazines were, say, a sheet of plywood, or a gallon of gas, badly needed and in short supply after a hurricane, politicians would be screaming about price gouging and instituting emergency price controls.
He needs to shop around better. It’s all about supply and demand. Although I’ve seen PMAG’s priced online about the $44 range. The key is to watch the websites and strike while the iron’s hot.

Everyone should have bought them cheap and stacked them deep, also ammunition and reloading components are hard to come by right now.
I don’t believe it is gouging so much as supply and demand. In the construction industry prices go up and down dictated by market demand and availability. When I have to pay more for a product my customer is going to pay that price plus my usual percent of markup.
I was caught flat-footed by the first assault weapons ban in the 90s and vowed to myself never again would I be short of any firearm/s or supplies that I needed which the petulant elite might deem contraband.Posted by bubba on 01/29 at 11:46 AM
