Someone posted about making a 100-rnd mag, did that ever happen? Could someone point me to the other thread?

Critical Dimensions is doing that - there was a post this week - he basically stated that he is waiting on some injection mold equipment in order to finish it. Soon, though...

The 100 round magazine is moving forward, don't expect release until Feb-March 2008 at the earliest. We are currently building polymer injection molds for the major components. This is a time consuming and very expensive process.

This is really cool of CritDime to do! And heck, Feb-March of next year might just put me back in the States on leave! Can't wait to see the finished product!

Yeah, what is the deal with this? I recall seeing discussion about this coming out a long time ago.

What is the projected timing of it?

Seems like a lot of time and no progress.

He posted the time line and the reason of the deal in the 3rd message from the top on this page...

If you would care to read a couple of post above yours, you would be inclined to read:

Yeah, already read shipwreck's post and realized I am a dumbass.

My apologies.

You don't need to tell me twice. Mission accomplished by shipwreck there buddy. No need to brow-beat.

The first release will be a $79 each limited group buy here on FNForum. Limit will be 2 per customer. After that, all marketing will be thru an agreement we have established with a distributor, who will control all advertising and sales. Retail is going to be around $125. We're in the final stages, just finishing up a newly designed tactical magazine latch that is going to be provided with the mags to prevent failures that we encountered after some long term use related to the extra weight of the mag and a hidden weakness found in the design of the stock/mag latch assembly. The Tactical Mag Latch greatly improves mag change of the factory 50 rounders too, makes for fast one handed use and it will be offered seperately as it has greater applications.
We're trying to coordinate the mag release with advertising and a write-up, so actual time-line will be dependent upon those publications.
