    Impressive firepower!

    They got some very healthy kudos and good, impressive accolades on GunTV.
    Almost makes me want to shop around for a Galil to AR magazine adapter so I can dump my overly LONG monopod 50s.

    At what point do we say - "the rifle is heavy enough." Red dots, magnifiers, night vision, lasers, fore grips, bi-pods, flash lights...and now this too?

    Just seems like a lot of weight.

    I actually liked the 20 rounders better when I was in - made going to prone a lot easier.

    Dangit - forgot the bayonet, sling, grenade launcher, GPS nav system, coffee maker, shaver, and DVD player...

    I've been considering getting two since I first saw them. I've been researching their reliability and they seem to be pretty damn good from what I've read or seen on YouTube.

    Two magazines = 120 rounds. Not bad firepower.

    I've always disliked the big Delta Drum magazines. Too cumbersome and projects a bad image to the

    Below is an impressive video testing the magazine in a regular gas operated M16 A2; a LWRC Piston SBR; and a FN-SCAR.

    In all the tests they stress the magazine with forward and rearward torque on the magazine as well as downward and upward torque. Flawless across all weapon platforms.

    Reportedly there is some pretty unique cartridge channeling that takes place inside and that is what makes them so reliable and able to function without cartridges hanging up internally.

    The only thing I have seen of them is being on a 3 gun squad with a couple of people that use them without any problems.

    Cool concept. They're just so expensive and I don't really have a need for it. I have a 40 round for my AK. I hardly use it.

    The second video I posted shows disassembly of the magazine. Pretty simple concept however unique in that it has both a small and a second, larger follower.

    I had a few of them that were my buddy's. They were decent and worked well, but they're just not for me. If I want 60 rounds on the rifle, I'd rather have two 30 round mags, one in a Redi-Mag, but that's just my paranoia coming out. All in all, I think they're a very reliable magazine and a great solution for rifles like the IAR.

    I guess I should note that I put two cans of xm855 through them (the 420 count cans) without a problem with my BCM 14.5" and about 3 mags through my LMT 10.5". I also did one mag dump on full auto from a Diablo 7.5" and a second mag in semi and short bursts. So, i guess I have about 960 rounds through them with maybe 120 of those others trying it out then others using their ammo as well.

    I have constant access to them if anyone needs me to break them down or post some pics or video.

    The 100 round version is about to hit the shelves so I'll wait for the real novelty mag. It's better than a beta drum.

    Actually I think AimPoint illuminated reticule/dot sights are fantastic now that the battery life is right around 5 years (constant on) but, give me a great sling....and the coffee Maker would be a nice addition.
    Things that I could personally do without would be as follows:
    Magnifier
    Night Vision
    Laser
    Fore Grip
    Bi-pod
    bayonet
    GPS Navigation
    Shaver
    DVD Player
    Grenade Launcher
    and the flashlight.

    But, I do like the idea of a 60 round mag that isn't "iffy" like a drum or a mile long.

    The price keeps me from being interested. They are pretty cool though. I wonder if the M249 would run them?
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.
