Which do you guys prefer and why? If you tape two mags together, are two 40 rounders somewhat cumbersome?

I like them both, but I have twice as many 40's as 30's.

I have 20 times the amount of 30s to 40s but I do like the 40s
30s are just cheaper

I prefer 35 rounders.

I think the 30 round mag is perfect.

20 shot magazines are best, if you shoot from the prone position a lot.

I honestly like the 20's better than any of them.

But since I have to pick between 30-40's...well 30's

I have to agree with the 2 previous posters, I like the 20s. I have a dozen 20s and 10 30rd bulgy waffles, alas no 40s for me. The 20s are just right for me in these times of pricey ammo. It seems like I shoot less if I'm loading 20s over 30s. I like bangin 'em out as much as the next guy, but I prefer aimed intentional target practice over hosing. With the 30s I feel like at the end I just keep squeezing the trigger to empty the mag, I'm sure the 40s would be worse. YMMV

A 40 round mag is a bit unwieldy in my experience and costs more than it is worth.

I love 40's but they are too expensive.

I prefer 75 and 100 rnd drums...

I prefer the 30s.

I have 40s and 75 rd drums. In a prepped position I'd go with the drums, then the 40s, then the 30s, then the 20s.

But when out "for a walk", I'll take the 30s.

30's or chicom drums.
Link Posted: 8/24/2006 10:43:47 PM EDT
40's are only good because they take 2 boxes of ammo.

in a semiauto ak the 20 rounder is best IMO, the 30 rounder or higher would be great for a fully-automatic AK
Link Posted: 8/25/2006 4:27:15 AM EDT
i have to say the 30's only because i have yet to use a 20 round mag and 10 rounders are just too small and the 40 rounder hits my foward pistol grip when inserting and removing the mag( has to be done at an angle). that being said if ammo wasnt getting expensive i love my romy 75 round drum.

I have a load of 30`s and I have two 40rd mags clamped together.

That being said if you`re not just hosing you`re better off with the 30`s.

I prefer the 20s. They stick out less and the rifle balances better. They also don't cause the rifle to monopod when shooting from the bench. I have a lot of 20s and 30s but not 40s.

But I also have one Romy 75 round drum, just because.

Thanks for all the replies. Where can you find the drums?
Link Posted: 8/25/2006 7:36:01 AM EDT
Anyone know where I can pick up a couple 5 or 10 round mags? I got a couple nice 30 round mags from promagindustries but they didn't have anything smaller. Thanks

30, 40 is just a little awkward and heavier
