negative ... and doubtful that I would. For some situations I sometimes find it cumbersome using 30rd Pmags at the range ... how much more cumbersome would that mag be?

The Beta mags are pricey but they do work well and they are compact ... more so than a 30rd mags

Are you planning to extensively use drum mags in a C15? Don't know how wise that is...

Take this for what it's worth, but I wouldn't ANY drum as a gift.

If you can't stop a fight with 30 rounds, then shame on you.

I've used the beta and it's reliable... but really freaking heavy.

I agree with Locutus. Unless this is a vehicle mounted weapon I would prefer to change mags.
