I am looking for good 30 round mags, does anyone have any recomendations?
+1 on the above advice. I too find the 25rd mags a little cumbersome. Hard to use in the prone position, and awkward/unbalanced in the standing position. 20 rds downrange is a pretty deadly combination. The extra 5rds in a mag won't make it any better. All I can say is try it, and see if it's to your liking. If you go that route, get only the CMI's. dozierI would suggest you buy only one 25 or 30 round mag and try it before you buy too many. Personally I don't even like the 25 rounders, to me they make my rifle off balance and are more cumbersome to fool with.
I am not trying to get off track too much, and really can't advise the OP on a source for 30 rd. mags,....but, I would take the quote above one further, and say that if the ten round mag that comes with the rifles from Springfield, were not enough to give me enough breathing room to displace, evac, or hit a reload.......well, then you are correct Sir, you are in big trouble anyway, and are probably not gonna make it......My philosophy is the rule of thumb......Stick your thumb up at arms length, try to cover the threat with it, if you can't, you are too close and need to get some rounds downrange to keep their heads down while you displace....or as my ole Nam buddy Tommy Holliman would say....Another 5 rounds of 7.62 is a lot of weight not to mention 10. A rifle I bought came with a 25 and I never use it. In addition, I really don't like the idea of that much weight hanging on my op rod spring guide etc. The extra weight at that extended moment sure makes the balance different. If putting 20 rounds downrange isn't enough to at least buy me the time to change mags, well I'm probably screwed anyway. Just my .02 GI1
I Like it ! GI1My philosophy is the rule of thumb......Stick your thumb up at arms length, try to cover the threat with it, if you can't, you are too close and need to get some rounds downrange to keep their heads down while you displace....or as my ole Nam buddy Tommy Holliman would say....
