All good points, smooth rear too which is easy on the hands. The price is ridiculous agreed. I think they have a slight advantage over steel mags for the points you mentioned. I'd love to see them back at $25 each which is the price point where I bought the vast majority of my horde.

I miss the days of the $15 ones back in the early 2000, late 90s.... wish I had stocked up, but I wasn't into AKs back then

No doubt! I heard at one time they were as low as $8 or something. Crazy how times change.

That was not a panic buyer, that was a smart buyer. He’s going to flip them and will make a decent profit.

Oh, ok. I just figured he was referring to me because I always say that I never buy during panics and won't pay panic prices and also because I've made more than a few posts about cars....

I always buy during a panic. I never need to, but I always get on the backorder list (at regular prices) and ride the crazy train.
Because there are people who just don't get it.
Buy while times are good.

If they gotta be taught the hard way, put me down for five more mags and quit your whining. I told ya' this was gonna happen, and ya' didn't believe me...

Well for me personally, you are always the first person I think about when I hear the word 'panic'.
