CTD can lick my hairy ballsack from now on. I’ve only bought from them once, but never again now.

Did the price of dirt skyrocket past gold?? WTF… Or is Piers Morgan handling their pricing structure?

Prices are crazy atm in the US.
In europe i can get Pmags(and Gmags) for 20 Euros.
And used GI Mags for about 8.
Usually we import from the US…now i could export them and make a decent profit :D

I hope for the shooters in the US that this crazy pricemaking will find a end. And prices return to “normal”.

Too much hassle involved. I asked the ATF about importing a barrel from Germany, and they told me I needed to fill out a bunch of paperwork and get approval, the State department probably has their own forms too. Plus customs duties and god knows what else.

Where in Europe exactly are you?? What firearm do you own that accepts standard GI mags?? Can I move there when we ban ours?? But seriously, holy fuck.

How can the name of the shop seriously still be “cheaper than dirt”

Reply

Seth December 28, 2012 at 08:21 am

If they are the only mags available on the net good for them, it’s good to know someone will still have mags available when everyone else is out of stock . This is simple supply and demand, that is why I got a lifetime supply of mags when I could at this point the grasshoppers need to be glad there is a opportunity to get something in winter.

Did you add the “(if you’re retarded)” after the Add To Cart button? Or is that actually on the site??? I would check myself but I don’t want to give CTD any false hope that I will ever buy anything from them again.

This is how free markets are supposed to work. High prices bring in more suppliers, more suppliers lead to lower prices.

They were the first to bail on gun-owners, send them into bankruptcy by not buying from them ever again…

And they’re selling the 100 round beta mags for AR-15s for $600. I’m never buying from this place again (“Mag AR-15 5.56x45mm C-Mag Beta Mag 100 Round Capacity Plastic Construction Clear Rear Cover Made In U.S.A.”).

$100 for a magazine, and they say “may show some wear and scuffing to finish”. So its not even new? Or are they factory rejects?

That’s nothing, David Gregory might get to pay $1000.00 for one.

Well, they could take a sharpie and write “H&K” on the side. Then that price would be about normal.

Well if you look at the list of AR mags this mag and a 20 round mag is all they have available.

But this is pure price gouging.

Well, I cannot get hold of sort of… none of the part for my original AR build plan… and I do not even live in good old ‘umerica. The insane stockpileing and pricehike has put a lid on pretty much getting your hands on anything you might need ever here in Viking country. True there are some European webshops that has some stuff in store, but most of the shops over here orders from the States when you place your order.. Luckily I am now going for a Hera Arms lower, which is made in Germany, and a CZ V22 .22 upper (for IPSC mini rilfe) but getting the .223 upper I want, will be a total bitch..

What’s the process like there for firearms ownership? Are folding stocks, pistol grips, muzzle devices, standard capacity mags, etc. kosher there or what? May have to move there some day if shit goes south. It’s either that or defend my rights with lethal force.

I showed this video to a friend of mine at work and the first thing he had an interesting comment:

Roughly what he said, “Are they attacking the magazines again? Don’t they know that all banning magazines does is make people practice reloading faster or use bolt actions from the bell tower where they can’t be reached?”

Oh and he pointed out that they advertised on Glenn Beck’s BlazeTV (CTD, that is) for a long time.
