Are there any "other" brand magazines that can be used on an S&W M&P15-22 ?
Current prices are rough. S&W does make short magazines, and they are in stock in many places. These are all I use. https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1006307529The S&W mags are (or at least were) pricey the last time that I looked.
And I want to get some shorter mags for bench rest shooting.
Zuk, clicked on the link and couldn't help notice the HUGE discount that Midway is offering off of the "list" price of $24.00. They are selling them for $23.99
The S&W patent expires in eight years. It will be interesting to see what the aftermarket brings then.There used to be, both promag and plinker tactical; but they were sued by S&W and don't make the mags anymore. S&W is sole source now. Only reason black dog got away with the 50rnd drum is it doesn't have a bolt hold open on the follower. (reason for law suit)
The problem with 15-22 mag availability is a lot of the 22 upper conversions can use them. Also the feed lips wear out quickly so high volume shooter have to replace them often. And it doesn't help that S&W only cranks up mag production when outside order reach a certain number. (Typical business practice)
Is it that some promotion codes don't apply to discounted items?Zuk, clicked on the link and couldn't help notice the HUGE discount that Midway is offering off of the "list" price of $24.00. They are selling them for $23.99
I mean, why bother to "discount" the price 1 cent?? I don't know what to make of that discount strategy... At least it says they are in stock
If it's any consolation:Wish I'd see this thread a few days ago, I have some M&P 15-22 mags coming in from Palmetto State Armory for $32 a pop.
