Result: The 60 and 100 round mags kick ass.

The length of these alone make it goofy to shoot prone (as shown at around 4:20 in the video, the soldier needs to use a side mounted red dot), not to mention could easily snag on pretty much anything.   Nevertheless, I want several of them!

Pretty awesome looking, I want a 100 rounder just for kicks. Unfortunately they are not available yet, and there is no mention of them on SureFire’s own website yet either.

Seems like a decent idea because the biggest one has the same capacity same as the Beta C-Mag drums, is cheaper, and is in a more compact package with less components.

The quad stack magazine isn’t a new idea. There are some pictures of a rare AK version I posted about HERE.

I’m aware that there was some whisper a while back of a Magpul quad stack mag as well… Just vapor ware still though for that.

Mixing calibers is not something i’d ever recommend trying unless you want to possibly hurt yourself. Interesting to see that it worked (this time) though.

I was looking at the ever popular AK Type Magazine Identification Chart that I posted back in October and thought:

There are a couple of very unique mags on there, I wonder if I can find actual pictures of them in use?

So after scraping the internet I came up with the following pictures of the two most unique mags out of the bunch.  Can you imagine how much either one of these would weigh fully loaded?
