I don't know man...
Amazon.com: 100 ea 12 Gram Unthreaded CO2, Crosman & Airsoft compatible: Everything Else

$44 shipped versus $64?

That's a difference of $20 each time I have to buy these.

Call me cheap but...

I understand the cost issue, especially since I seem to own 12g-fed markers only, but do understand there is a significant quality difference between Crosman and Leland. Inconsistencies in length of powerlet, fill amount, as well as quality of fill are all issues you need to deal with when you use Crosmans. Lelands are a distributor for US government programs, and are held to much stricter standards.
In real world examples, I only know of two instances of Leland 12g being empties, of the thousands I know to have been bought here on McB alone. I personally have had a third of a box of Crosmans come out as empties or near-empties. It was enough of a difference for me to switch

My advice? Split a box with a friend from Red Rock. Then it equates to ~$80 for either 200 Crosmans or 225 Lelands. Then enjoy the next couple of years without having to purchase any 12g. I have done that and plan on doing it again.

That's a lot of 12gs.

Awesome for price discounts!

I am going to be offering a 450 bulk price discount of $164 shipped. I have to crunch a few more numbers, but it's looking like that's going to work out. I should have it up on the website this evening or tomorrow.

Let me know what others are charging. I can't afford pallets of these things at a time to get a huge price break, hell one pallet has set me back quite a bit, but I'm going to do my best to beat redrock and others to earn your business.

I will be picking up a batch of 450 from you in the near future, titus. Sounds like a great price.
