Agreed. I'm writing my Senators, which as I live in WA state is probably a waste of time... any way to produce the mags sooner in case this amendment doesn't die a well-deserved death?

If they are as good as the PMAGS I recently bought for my LR-308's, I will buy at least 5.

I'm in for 5 20s right away, with an option for a mess more if they're solid performers. I'd look at 20 and 25 rounders, but probably stick with the 20s...

To be honest, I think the US needs to pass a bill that would nullify bills with stupid shit tacked on.... Why?

Because what do firearm magazines have to do with CYBERSECURITY!? I think it should be so that when a moot or irrelevant point is added to a bill, the bill is instantly nixed and shredded, and thrown off the floor.

But, that would make too much sense for the Government. :\

New tax bill? ADD VEHICLE HEADLIGHT COLOR RESTRICTIONS!!!!!!

New anti-crime bill? ADD A PARAMETER BANNING CIGARETTE SMOKING IN PARKS!!!!

Are these the production molds or the latest round of testing molds?

Looking forward to seeing some light at the end of this tunnel Moses. Hope you recoup your investment multiple times on this.

It's been a while - Obama just announced in the debates that he wants to ban assault weapons again, which would likely include a magazine ban. Do we have any update on this? At all?

I was at the mold company yesterday and they have my mold on the line.
The most recent changes that we made are requiring most of the mold to be remade, unfortunately there was no way to get around this.

Good news is they are working on it now but it's not a quick or easy process so it will be a while before all the work is completed.

These are the production molds so if all the changes that are being made to the mold are successful production of the Mags will start soon as the magazine is proven.
I was told 1 to 3 months before I get mags to test from this mold.

I know it sucks but it is a slow tedious process.
I am at the mercy of the mold company and they are slammed with work, that's why it's taken this long for them to get to my mold to make the changes.

Tows220, yes these will be available directly through me here on the Falfiles once they are ready to be sold.

Not really, I don't have that much money LOL!
They have customers who get 35,000 piece orders in front of me so it kinda puts me in a different league.

I was at the mold company Thursday and they are working on mine now so hopefully it won't be much longer.

Here is a video of the latest prototype moses mag and it had no post mold modifications done to it and it worked great so hopefully we'll be good to go soon as the modifications to the mold are finished!!!

Looks like Obama won and the Democrats made further gains in the Senate. Bans will be forthcoming, if not direct through the House caving, then through 'treaties' - which only require presidential and Senate approval.

Is there any way to get the mold company to move faster on this at all?

Executive orders; no ratification necessary. Simply speak, and it shall be so.
