Ok in my infinate search of the net for all things AR15 I came across a 70rd Magazine that looked like a really long 30rd mag. The problem is I can't seem to find the URL again. I know it said "Out of Stock" but I'd love to find this weird contraption again.

Can you help me out?

OK found it on Google search but please don't tell me you're going to buy it.

Thanks FA. I knew I had seen it somewhere before. After getting a good look at it I'd say naw I'm not going to buy it. For $65 money would be better spent towards a Beta mag or some USGI mags.

Looks like two 30 rounders welded together which means the mag spring must be rigged together too.

Only thing it would be good for is to say " My mag is bigger than yours"

Looks a LOT like a 30 and a 40 got welded together, very poorly. I wouldn't trust that for range use!

The longer a magazine is the more spring tension it needs to feed the rounds. The more spring tension the hard it is for the bolt to strip the rounds from the mag. Basically mags over 30 rounds in 223 typle weapons are generally more trouble prone than standard 30 and 20 round mags. If you want a reliable high cap mag get the beta mag which works under constant spring pressure.

A different angle:

Hey is has a green follower that must mean it works perfect.

For $50 they can keep it.

I will take my 30 rounders any day over that. dosent look very reliable and it will never fit in any mag pouches. plus the price is hight for one mag. just my opinion though.

That 70 round mag is butt ugly in my opinion. You would be better served by the 100 round snail drum for a $100 bucks. I have found an exception to the over 30 round problem magazine rule. My HK93 40 round mags work without malfunction - always. However I find I prefer to use the HK 25 round mag as it is just right in length for most purposes. If I am keeping the hoardes back I would go to my BetaC mag.
