snagged 20 of them the other day. be warned, this is Natchez, so shipping is insane. They had a free shipping over $99 the other weekend, which is when I jumped on them.

just wish they weren't the FDE... I have 34 of the FDE right now and would like some of the "fakelite" orange or black ones to spice it up.

Agreed. I was hoping someone had a super secret free shipping code for these.

I put 10 in the cart and estimated shipping was $15 to me in WA.

20 mags came to $23 to ship.

These are great training and range mags at that price.

btw... these FDE ones have been on sale for cheap prices from multiple vendors over the last month or so. From what I hear from my retailer contacts, Tapco is discontinuing the FDE like they did Plum, so these are probably "dump em" prices (which is why the FDE ones are the ones always going on sale)

My first thought seeing the code in my email was either it was going to be sold out, no longer on sale or the coupon wouldn't apply to the mags.

Snagged a bundle. I know these are looked down on, but over the past several years, I have abused them without a single issue in FA post samples, without a single hiccup.

haha! that's exactly what I was wanting to do. I agree, keep us updated on the mix to get a good plum color. I'd kill to be able to make those as I have a ton of the FDE tapcos to play with

Well giant - I am puzzled as to why they don't ship to Georgia of all places - as last I heard you guys and gals were in the heart of the South, not on the Left Coast, and not behind the Iron Curtain of Progressive Marxism - in other words "Not Occupied"? Have I missed something serious along the way to the Twilight Zone?

I have several Tapco smooth sides in the stash. I have one I abused the snot out of, just as I did my Gen1 Magpuls. Other than a small chip out of the feed lip, it took the abuse. Tapco replaced it for free.
