Ponchsox, Fifty bucks for a carbine mag ? Wow! Back in the ancient days gone by the local AFB moved from Carbines to M-16’s and dumped about five hundred mags in a dumpster at their range, one of the supervisors called me and indicated if I wanted them I would need to beat the trash truck. My girls threw most of them out where I dumped them into my pickup bed. Sold mags at gun shows for $.50 and gave away a few hundred, still have about thirty or more to feed my ten Carbines….that original DCM Carbine cost me about $20 bucks.

I did not want to say this, but even today, no need to pay that.

Hmm, sounds like an RTI carbine owner...just kidding. ;)
No, I got my carbines before all this crazy set in. This website prevented me from making that error on some other RTI offings, Italian and British. I have been known to learn my lessons the hard way. Just not this time.

I'm not saying the price is good, just that they have them. I'm sure you can find them cheaper if you look. I don't blame J&G for taking advantage of high M1 Carbine prices.
