Medium capacity assault anyone?

I like the look of the magazine, and it seems to work well… but I gotta ask why?  To get 20 measly more rounds than 1 single standard AR-15 magazine, and 10 rounds less than carrying two and the width of around 5 magazines?  Seems to me that carrying two mags would take up less room, and be compatible with every pouch on the planet… not to mention you also have the assurance that if one fails you still have 30 rounds (hopefully) in magazine #2.  I guess what I’m trying to get at is if you want sustained automatic fire you might as well go with a 100 rounder for maximum fun.  Those though are even more bulky and awkward…

Made by XS Products who also make a load of other drum magazines.  Their name is confusingly similar to XS Sights, but as far as I can tell the two companies are not related.

Thoughts?  Are you on board with drum magazines, or do <3 the box configuration and capacity of the Surefire high capacity 60 and 100 round box style magazines more?  Interesting how Sturmgewehre said he hasn’t had any luck with the Surefire 60s.

He does his trademarked bumpfire:

Result: it works.

I’m actually surprised he didn’t spring the for Surefire 100 Round Magazine instead.  It would be more conducive to his bumpfire lifestyle.  Maybe it’s not out yet though?

I know a lot of you hate when I post cokeman’s videos, cause it “gives the antis fuel” or something like that.  I see where you’re coming from, but I really couldn’t care less what someone that doesn’t like guns thinks about anything.  If cokeman wants to bumpfire inside his house he can go ahead and do it for all I care (actually I hope he does cause that would be facepalm-tastic) as long as no one is getting hurt.

When he’s out and about, I bet he gets a lot of questions regarding his role on “2 and a half men”.

Thoughts?

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.

A steal of a deal can be found at Optics Planet, as you can see below:

$18,247 is a heck of a savings… so nice of them to optionally bundle one flashlight with the package for only $59.99 extra :lol:

Something tells me that if you purchased that many batteries at once you’d be put on some type of watch list and guys in suits would show up for an investigation.  Hopefully they would leave after you told them you were afraid of the dark, and didn’t want to risk running out of batteries for your EOtech or your one new SureFire G2.
