The Mako Group recently posted an update on the status of their E-Lander AR-15 Magazines. They are slammed with orders right now but the magazines are still in stock with more coming and they are committed to keeping the prices at the same pre-panic level. I still don’t know a lot about these magazines but the initial reports are very promising.
Here is statement from The Mako Group regarding the status of orders, the availability of the mags, and how to contact them:
Update on your E-Lander magazine orders:
We are not answering phones.
Currently, every employee in our NY headquarters is packaging and shipping magazines to fill orders, from the CEO on down. At this point we are not answering the phones, as we are receiving enough calls to keep everyone busy full time just answering the phone. We had to make a choice between taking calls or shipping orders. The vast majority of the calls we have been receiving is from people who are calling to ask whether we do in fact have magazines in stock, and people following up their web order with a call to make sure that their orders are not backordered.
The answer to the questions most asked are:
Yes, we do have magazines in stock, and no one’s magazine order is backordered. We are not currently giving estimated ship dates, since that requires pulling up each customer’s order information and making an estimate. If we do this for everyone who asks, it will increase the time everyone will have to wait to get their orders shipped.
At this time we are not offering rebuild kits for CA customers. We simply do not have the time. This is something we are looking into for the future.
We are now shipping magazines that are not packaged in retail bags. The bags are included separately (for those who plan to resell the magazines) but packaging each magazine in a poly bag is an extra step that takes time away from the manufacture of magazines.
If you have ordered magazines, the magazines that you ordered are either in our warehouse waiting to be packed and shipped, or somewhere between our warehouse and your address. No dealer/distributor/
manufacturer order will take priority over your order. We will not pull the mags that you ordered to ship them to someone else.
If you are planning to order magazines, we have them now – it will not be a backorder. We are receiving constant shipments of magazines from Israel and are packing and shipping thousands of magazines every day.
We have not and will not be raising our prices.
How to contact us:
If you need to contact us, please contact us through email. If you must call, please leave a message. We are responding to email and phone messages, but we may not respond to non-priority messages (i.e. “When will my order ship?”) until after you have already received your order.
You can receive 5% off your order by using the discount code “JERK” (case sensitive) and free shipping on orders over $99 by using the discount code “FREE-GRND” (DO NOT select a shipping option if you are using the free shipping code).
