Default Cheaper than Dirt PMAGS!

http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/product/MAG-074

Just thought I'd share this with everyone. Further confirmation of why I won't ever buy anything from them again. $60 for a PMAG?!?!

Seriously though, if anyone is stupid enough to buy a PMAG for $60 becuase they can't do a quick google search or go through a sponsor of this site, I would love to sell you one of my PMAG rebuild kits for the low price of $45 shipped to your door. That is a 25% discount!

THIS^^^^. CTD doesn't want California's business, so we shouldn't give it to them.

PS, don't forget Exile Machine.

I also just saw on their website a 20 round box of PMC Bronze 55gr FMJBT going for $19.99. They are anything but cheaper than dirt. They never got my business before and they never will now.

They have always been anti CA, they will always be anti CA, dont buy from Cheaper Than Dirt or The Sportsman's Guide. Tried to order some items several years ago from CTD and they canceled my order. Never have I been so Insulted over the phone. Now, my first go to places are brownells, midway, cabelas, wideners, exile machine, bravo company, psa,. There are also other great places that have no reservations about sending ammo or "tactical" related items here,


PS, they lowered their price from $60 to $30.. WHAT A DEAL RIGHT?

LCJ all the way I called today and bought 20 kits for 199 plus 12.00 to ship and he will ship next week. The good thing is he used to own the other company he gets his kits from and he sold it to his best friend so who do you think is going to get stuff first him or the other guy and he guarantees his clips to rock. I would call LCJ and order the 30 round rebuild kits 11.95 unless you order 20 or more than they are 9.95 and he is a great guy to boot.

Brownell's don't seem to ship 30 round PMags to CA. I haven't been able to check out. Why do you guys think they are CA friendly?

CTD sold out of Pmags! I wonder how many they sold at $60. In comparison, $30 seemed like a bargain. The half-price frenzy must have cleaned them out!

I doubt it if anyone who is stupid enough to pay $60 for the Pmags. They pulled the ads due to the outrage by the public on their price gouging.

Uhm, Exile Machine just had a sale on PMAGS, 10 for $100 + $8 shipping, no repair kit break-down charge.

I highly recommend them.

Nuts!!!!!

Brownells does not sell rebuild kits. Plain and simple.

However, Brownells is more than happy to sell you an AR upper, a stock, or any other numerous items on their website.

CTD is notorious for blocking sales to CA. Many people here have had orders on 100% legal products denied for no valid reason.

CTD is a joke. A complete waste of time and a definite proponent of screwing the customer with ridiculous shipping and handling fees through multiple warehouses. The only thing that is good is their free catalog that comes in the mail It allows me to check stuff out and purchase from other retailers.

Cheaper than dirt is exactly that, cheaper than dirt. Step on them, and don't even acknowledge their presence. At least dirt is actually useful.
