Mini-mag recall?



Log in to see fewer ads
Was at a TX Walmart yesterday and decided to pick up 2 100 round packs of 36gr hp CCI Minimags.
The register would not allow them to be sold, evendors when a manager came by with his override key and code. Manager said that only happens with a recall.
WM mistake or true?

I bought 5 of the 100 packs of these Mini Mags on Friday at an Academy in the Houston area. They had a lot of it for sale.


Not sure about a recall ?

No mention of a recall on the CCI or Vista Outdoor (ATK) Website.

He stated 36 gr bullet weight - that makes it the hollow point. Mini Mag HV bullet weight is 40 grains.

the only time the Walmart system refuses to let an item be sold is for a product recal.

When an item "goes out of system" and becomes what we called "Not On File", it takes 5 minutes or less to put it back on file with the system and make it saleable. So as a result, if the management couldn't get the system to take it for sale, one should start to take notice because the Walmart system will normally flag an item for recall up to a week before the actual companies announce it.

With food, the system would block that brand of say pizza or yogurt for sale on Tuesday morning, and normally a major salmonella recall would be announced on the Thursday evening news for that item.

I have not heard of any recalls. I think the WM guy was just guessing.

Interesting problem.

Curious, what is the going Walmart price of the 100 rd Mini Mags, best I have seen is 9.95/ 100 pack. Hoping it is coming down like other rimfire ammo seems to be. Tons of ~$9 a 50 for 17hmr's, vs $13 and up in recent pre-Trump days.
