    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.

    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.

    But on the other hand [​IMG]

    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.
