I will be in for at least five (as I had said earlier) in a week or so (stupid unexpected bills and waiting for insurance company reimbursement)...
I have 2 RRA rifles. I order 2 Mags from Johnny he offered to modify them for me but its my understanding some of the ribbing will need to come off due to the mag well.

That would definitely open up a whole 'nuther level of complexity, but might be a bonus to your cash flow, too.

At the very least, it shows that you're getting some attention on the mag, which is great!

Have you considered sending some out to the popular websites to review?

Also, just sent an email your way with my non-CO order.

I have a Kel-Tec and would be happy to check mag fit as soon as the ten I ordered arrive.

It's been several days now, and I haven't heard back from him either. Guy's swamped as all get out, I bet.

Anyone know if Johnny's got some help for all of this, or is he handling email, quality checks, shipping, and finances himself? For all the product getting ordered right now, that's a lot for one man.

I got all mags to Colorado shipped and they will all arrive either today or tomorrow according to USPS tracking!!!

I am swamped, truly swamped!!! Thanks you all for your orders and please be patient with me I have received your emails just haven't had time to respond to them all yet.

I do have some help so that will speed things up quite a bit!
But it's still gonna be very time consuming getting to all the emails.

Please do not send any PM's for orders, only emails to gjohnnygun@yahoo.com

PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR ADDRESS IN YOUR EMAIL WHEN YOU ORDER SO I CAN QUOTE YOUR SHIPPING COST


I'll get back on here tonight and try to answer some more questions, but gotta run right now!!!!!!

Thank you all!!!

They will not fit in a RFB. The back of the mag well is longer on the RFB and it hits ridges on the mag.

Huge thanks for the rush to CO Moses.

I've been following this thread for a few months now and I'm glad to see it has finally come to fruition. I bet Moses is much happier than I since he's been working on it for several years! I still plan on ordering 5 but I'm going to wait until the rush is over and he has a chance to breathe and revel in his good work. I don't see any major anti-gun legislative changes happening in this state in the near future, so I will just be patient a while longer. Thank you, Moses; so happy to see your dream become reality! Cheers!

Thank you janman.

You could use a dremel, file, sand paper, milling machine or even a drill press to mod it to fit the RFB or LAR-8

I have been following this thread for more than two years and have waited for any way to send this man some money. I have made the commitment to get in line early with a decent size order to hopefully get some money in the coffer. Of all that has come through the FALfiles since $90 kits this is the MOST worthy!

I'd like to know as well. Sent an email along over a week ago and no response yet. I hope it got through; sure would like to get my mittens on a few (wink, wink, nudge, nudge...).

Also still waiting for some slackers to post some range reports!

Still waiting, too. Starting to get frustrated with this. I may end up just asking for a refund and waiting til Moses gets his business / order system running as well as his mags supposedly are.

Oh, ye of little faith.
Moses has one of the best reputations on this board, and has sunk literally all of his money and years of his life into this project. He will deliver.
I also ordered a few weeks ago, and my 10 mags will get here in their own time. According to the poll, Johnny has orders for a few thousand mags.
Patience. All will be well.

Sorry last time I checked this post there were no new posts for a while.

Will Power check your spam box as I am pretty sure I responded to your email's a while ago.

If anyone wants a refund I have no problem with refunding your money just let me know.
I don't want anyone unhappy if they can't or don't want to wait.

With the crazy wait times most major gun companies are experiencing right now (Rock river is at least 8 months, how long were people waiting on SCAR 17 mags from FN and how much did the prices get jacked up on those?) you have to remember I am just starting in this type of endeavor and I am doing all I can to have the wait times as short as possible, but if major companies with lots of employees are experiencing wait times as long as they are you have to expect this initial rush on orders is going take a a little bit of time to get caught up on.

Thanks for all of your support on this project you have given me and if anyone doesn't want to wait please let me know and I will promptly refund your money.

Once the website gets up and running and we get the system running as lean as possible things will go much more smoothly and timely.

My email to reach me is gjohnnygun@yahoo.com

Thanks Johnny

Some of you fellas need to cut Moses/Johnny a break. Really.

He has done the world of FALs a huge blessing by making these magazines a reality for us. They are worth your wait even if there is some small dose of frustration mixed in. I for one can not imagine keeping up with all the orders he is processing right now.

I assure you, you will be very satisfied with the product. And no, I'm not affiliated with his project at all. I'm like you, an end user. They function like a great magazine should. And he is not kicking you in the dick with a ball busting price either.

As a battling bastard behind the lines in Colorado, I'm forever grateful that M/J did what he could to help us.

Hang tough gents, hang tough.

And perhaps, those of you that have received your product, chime in as well. Lets give the man the friggin kudos he deserves for seeing this through. When millions of our citizens would turn their backs on the gun owning public, I pray and give thanks for men like M/J that put their proverbial neck on the line to go against the grain and actually DO SOMETHING positive for gun owners.

Thanks Johnny....stay strong amigo!

Congratulations on your month long wait. Most of us here have waited years to see the fruition of this project. You won't get sympathy from me on that account. But...I would urge you to take it easy. Good things come...
