Jasmine was so happy in the Aladdin movie, look at her now:

Aladdin came out of the closet, and left her for the genie.  Now she looks pissed off because she was forced to take up arms to defend the middle east.

I’m not quite sure about that terrible trigger discipline (times 2, considering she has both her index and middle finger on the trigger)

Also, she’s going to be unpleasantly surprised when she finds out that the ammunition she has draped over her shoulder, is not compatible with her M-16A1.

Computer Simulation of Improved Magazine from PEO Soldier on Vimeo.

This computer simulation depicts the operation of the Army’s Improved Magaine.

The Army has begun fielding the new 5.56mm 30 round Improved Magazine that delivers a significant increase in reliability for the battle-tested M16 and M4 weapons systems. Bolstering the already high reliability ratings of the M16/M4 systems, the Improved Magazine effectively reduces the risk of magazine-related stoppages by more than 50 percent compared to the older magazine variants. Identified by a tan-colored follower, over 500,000 of the improved magazines have been fielded to units in Iraq, Afghanistan and in the U.S.

Pretty big oversight when the Army forgets the extraction of the casing in their video.  Even if they got the extraction right, the entire video would still be 100% useless.

STANAG-4179

I called a few different NATO numbers a while back and inquired about that document.  All the people I talked to told me that it was not just “available” to anyone that simply wanted it.  I found that answer odd though considering every other NATO document under the sun, is readily available on the internet.

My question is:
if there is no STANAG 4179, where does a person get the standardized magazine measurements from? The few dozen companies that make magazines can’t have just busted out their calipers and measured an old COLT magazine they had lying around, and called it day.

Or could they have?

The original Magpul P-Mags never fit properly in “some” AR-15 lowers.  To me, this means that they didn’t use the standardized model of an AR-15 magazine to create their polymer one.

If anyone has the STANAG 4179 document (if it exists :)) please contact me, I’d love to see it.   Otherwise I’d like to see any document that has the AR-15 magazine measurements in it, so please send it over!
