The can be made too. Some of them are made that way (certain norincos), or a regular one can be modified to take one, but IIRC, it can weaken the receiver if done wrong.

It's easier just to buy "duckbill" mags; i picked up one that is an obvious conversion of a 30 round AK mag (duckbill device attached to top by "welds"). In my tapco stock, i like the tapco mags; in the ramline montecarlo-type stock, i like the stock mag.

What i want is a twenty round, non-detachable mag, pref. U.S. made for 922 compliance.


FYI, a guy i know used one in a HD/self-defense situation; it stopped the guy kicking in the door, but left him alive for jail (prolly best in that situation, complicated).

That would make my day. I believe that 10 rounds would suffice for my needs though.

If I can find one that was originally built for the AK mags, at a price I can afford while I have the money in my pocket, I'll throw down and fist fight for it if I have to.

Otherwise, ten is fine. It would mostly be used as a brush gun game getter, if I ever get back to hunting. I tried to recently, but this whole divorce thing kinda threw a wrench in all that. Besides, I honestly think I could probably slam stripper clips quicker than I can change an AK mag.

The models (D & M, i think) for AK mags go HIIIIIGH.

I have found the stripper clips darn handy. They also sell this chinese vest that holds a couple dozen stripper clipss.

I changed 162.5 gallons of fluid today. Can I go home now?

Alright, ladies- which one of you was this?

From the FML website-

Today, whilst in an argument with my girlfriend, I told her she was the craziest bitch I'd ever met. She responded with "Challenge accepted." I'm now terrified. FML

I'm just amazed to find someone else who's actually heard of the site. Considering how many people post on it, I figured we'd have run into more.

I'll bet your a mod there too, aren't you?
