Yeah, shame that CTD is on my "never buy from again list" because of the price gouging with AR mags and them taking firearms off of their site after sandy hook.

I'm surprised they aren't $93 a piece. They will never get a dime from me again

I am not a fan anymore of CTD because of its recent history, BUT they may be trying to make amends:

SAF Press Release :: SAF ANNOUNCES 2013 DIAMOND SPONSOR CHEAPER THAN DIRT!

NEWS RELEASE Second Amendment Foundation 12500 NE Tenth Place • Bellevue, WA 98005

SAF ANNOUNCES 2013 DIAMOND SPONSOR CHEAPER THAN DIRT! For Immediate Release: 2/14/2013 BELLEVUE, WA – The Second Amendment Foundation today announced that CheaperThanDirt has made an unprecedented contribution of $100,000, making the online sporting goods retailer SAF’s first-ever Diamond Level sponsor.



Created in response to the generous donation from CheaperThanDirt, the Diamond level of sponsorship indicates the highest level of support for SAF’s continued efforts to restore firearms rights “one lawsuit at a time,” as SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb explains it.


A partial list of recent SAF legal triumphs include Moore v. Madigan, Woollard v. Sheridan, Chan v. Seattle and the landmark Supreme Court decision in McDonald v. Chicago.


SAF wins outside the courtroom, too. On Feb. 5 in Oak Harbor, Wash., a combination of educational and grass roots efforts backed by the promise of legal action from the SAF persuaded city leaders to actually follow state law – a result of the SAF Preemption Legal Project. The SAF Preemption Legal Project assists cities and counties in achieving compliance with state firearms laws through education and when required - litigation.


SAF educational programs include the annual Gun Rights Policy Conference, the publication of TheGunMag.com and Women & Guns, and providing a variety of other publications.


The support of CheaperThanDirt for the right of law abiding persons to keep and bear arms is beyond question and their generous sponsorship of SAF demonstrates the sincerity of their support for SAF’s efforts to protect and restore firearms rights.

“The level of support from CheaperThanDirt both delighted and shocked me,” said SAF Director of Development Ray Carter. “SAF has never before received a single donation of this size and by itself CheaperThanDirt’s contribution will make possible a major expansion of SAF legal action and education efforts. We are privileged to consider CheaperThanDirt a partner in our efforts.”


The Second Amendment Foundation (www.saf.org) is the nation's oldest and largest tax-exempt education, research, publishing and legal action group focusing on the Constitutional right and heritage to privately own and possess firearms. Founded in 1974, The Foundation has grown to more than 650,000 members and supporters and conducts many programs designed to better inform the public about the consequences of gun control. In addition to the landmark McDonald v. Chicago Supreme Court Case, SAF has previously funded successful firearms-related suits against the cities of Los Angeles; New Haven, CT; New Orleans; Chicago and San Francisco on behalf of American gun owners, a lawsuit against the cities suing gun makers and numerous amicus briefs holding the Second Amendment as an individual right.

There is a message on the Cheaper than Dirt site that the 709 magazines are not available and can not be a "back order".

I'm registered on both CTD and Midway to be notified when 709/740/PT111MilPro-12 become available and have received no emails saying so. When I check sites they still say the notice is good, and they still have no stock and no backorder allowed.

Count me among those who will never do business with them again. They were so quick to profit from the Sandy Hook tragedy, that I can never in good conscience buy anything from them. Shameless carpetbaggers!
