Looks like we'll be getting quad stack AK mags - just not from MD Arms. US Palm just announced it on their Facebook page.


Only for 7.62 though.

I just read about this on Warriortalk yesterday. Also saw it on the US Palm Facebook page. I wonder if there will be a patent issue on this magazine. Mike had told us that he had very broad patent protection on the quads he is designing. This will be interesting!
I also hope that Mike's prices undercut the $99.00 that US Palm plans to ask for their 45 rounders. I think that it is too steep for this mag. Price it a $60 and sell the hell out of them.
Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

It's been quite a while since we have heard anything from Mike, I have a feeling we are going to get some kind of update soon. *fingers crossed*

I have been trying to contact MD Arms for over a week by phone and email to return a defective 20 rd Saiga drum and can't get any response, and their voice mail is full---are they still in business?

Whatever direction he went, I guess he kept on going. It's kind of disappointing that he can't pop in once in a while. However he doesn't owe me anything and vice versa. I don't sit around and wait on promises that may or may not happen. That only leads to disapointment.

I called copes which is a distributor of md products and they showed no inventory of drums. So I called cope's and the lady on the other end said that there had been a death in the md family. Copes would call when they received more. Don't know but I hope all is well

I've read a lot from haters and nay-sayers here in the forums. Have faith in Mr. Davidson. I'm sure that he's got a lot on his plate.
If for some reason he's leaving the scene a year after getting his new facility up, well then that's a real shame. Especially where there's a market for it :)
If Mr. Davidson is having some trouble, and anything is to blame, it's that leeching IRS draining the piss out of Mikes corporation, OR... or patent lawsuits. OR he's not updating here in the form because he's sick of getting hated on. OR.... a combination of all 3

Maybe he is just a slave to his work, and is getting ready to drop a new product on us any day.

Guys and Gals,

We sell the MD Arms line to many Dealers and Distributors. Melissa will be handling the Saiga-12 forum for me so feel free to welcome her to our team. If you are a dealer and need MD Arms Products. You can purchase them through:

Cope's Distributing Inc.
Amchar Wholesale Inc.
Zanders Sporting Goods Inc.

Yes i have talked to Mike. Many times over the past months. He is doing well. As far as what planet he was on. I would guess to say Split Tale Planet.

Thanks
Roger

Interesting that he is paying for a section here and not posting anymore. But that's his choice, just keep churning them drums out. Please.

MD ARMS' website is BACK UP

 

AND they are announcing that they will be taking orders ASAP when site maintenance is done!

 

Good news, that means that people won't be trying to sell the MD-20 for $250 anymore.

I have seen a similar scenario in the catfish pole industry where the owner seemingly goes AWOL. A small one or two man company made a very good product that everyone liked. But his company eventually sank to the bottom like a lead sinker. I hope this is NOT happening to Mike Adams:

 

I am NOT saying this is happening with MD Arms, but I have seen a situation where a guy gets into niche market, produces a great product that everyone likes. Sales and reputation go thru the roof. Then they want to go "Big Time". So they expand too quickly or in the wrong direction, and then they go bust. To make matters worse, they move away from their customers so they can focus on the product. Then the customers move away from them.

 

I can see not replying to every email thru the website, as I can imagine that would be quite a task. But I do agree that posting on the forum every once & awhile would help. It would let us know that the company is moving forward.

 

Again, I hope this not true as I just took possession of my two MD 20/12's. And finally – Good luck to Mike and good luck to MD Arms!

As long as Mike Adams keeps making MD20/12's I'm happy. :) *

If I had to look at that ugly mug in the morning it would be killing me too! No wonder she wants to get rid of the second amendment - she is a afraid of being mistaken for a zombie!

Any way, this is a MD Arms thread, not a ugly avatar thread! Just FYI: I just bought another MD20 directly from MD Arms new website! (01/12/2013 @3:05 am EST)

www.mdarms.com

That being said, what ever direction or path MD Arms has been on in the past, it appears to be headed in the right direction now! Thanks Mike!
