Does anybody know of a dealer that will let you pre order one of the new Para 16.40's?

I doubt it. Para has yet to figure out what they are going to do with the mags yet, so it could be a while.
And you never know the price could change by the time it is released. I would hang out and wait for it. Plus, most dealers want part (or all) of it down. Why should they make interest on your savings instead of you. ;)

The other thing to know is that Para sells directly to the distributer, not your LGS, so it won't do you much good. It may get your LGS to place a pre-order for an allotment, but there is no set up for special order, as far as I know.

The mag thing is crazy. Para has been making a double stack 40 for several years. What in the world could make this mag so much more difficult?
If the 16.40 isn't released by mid December I'm probably just gonna go the STI Eagle route. The only reason I haven't already is because of the price for what you get.
The para seems more in line with reality, price wise.
