Default surefire 60 round banana mags

Is anybody as excited as I am?! Hopefully cost will come down as other manufactures start copying the design.

I've only seen them for AR's...are they making them for AK's/SKS's? I haven't had much luck with hi-cap mags...or drums...my wallet REALLY doesn't like them!

I misread and thought I saw them for the ak. I'm contemplating converting my saiga 223 to take ar mags so I can get a few of these.

Please don't refer to them as 'banana' anything... At least you didnt say clips.

Got something against bananas? They're high in potassium

First off the magazines are not yellow. I serioously doubt they are the least bit tasty.

Need reviews that confirm their goodness.
60 (and even 100) sounds great, but expensive.

I guess I am a little different. I do have a bipod on my AR. But I try to keep it light weight without a bunch of crap I don't need. I don't really care to add the weight of a 60 round mag in my gun.

Are you talking about a 60rd double stack mag or a quad stack mag?
The double stack has been out for years, here is one on my Romy RPK.

If it is the quad stack I would like to see some of them too if the price is right.

The Surefire 60 and Surefire 100 are made for the M16 / AR15 platforms.

They seat into the magazine well as would a normal 10/20/30 rounder.

The difference is that they are a DoubleStack on the lower portion, with the
rounds converging into single stack on the upper portion.


The Surefire web site covers them in detail.
