A while back I saw an article on a 60 round mag for the AR that was not the typical snail drum BS. I was interested in it for several reasons.
First off, it’s only 2 inches longer than a standard PMAG. The mag body is just slightly fatter than the standard AR receiver making it less bulky than a snail drum. And it’s made by Schmeisser in Germany. I also figured with the box-mag configuration; it would be less prone to jamming. Unlike the Chinese made snail drums which tend to …well…basically suck.
Not to mention the Schmeisser will retail for half the price of standard snail drums.
When I received notice that one of my distributors had them into inventory, I jumped on one. Have not actually tried it out yet, but I’m pretty excited to run this mag through a SCAR, standard AR, pistol AR and a Suppressed AR.
I’m sure it will fail in at least one platform, but I’m hoping for the best. If it works in all of them I will be amazed.
More to come on this one.
