Hi, "New-Guy" question, here. I'm looking at Bushy's new Carbon 15 9mm, but (probably like many) the mention of ProMag makes me break out in hives and cold sweats. I haven't owned a 9mm AR before, so I'm not sure of the differences/modifications that can be made to Sten, Uzi, etc., mags, so that they may be used with the various adaptors. Thoughts, suggestions? Would I be better off to get a different, modular, system? I know ProMag is cheap, but I don't want to spend $500 in shipping, trying to get a dozen mags from them that will work! Thanks, in advance......

So you're scared of plastic mags but not a carbon rifle?

I'm just giving you a hard time....I myself am not sold on the carbon rifles yet.

The Bushmaster is set up for Colt mags. This means you can use the expensive Colt 32 rounders, modified Uzi 25 rounders, and 32 round Pro Mags. I am currently building my first 9mm and I have one modified Uzi mag and one Pro Mag. I understand the apprehension of using the Pro Mags but for me it's just a range toy so they won't be abused. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the Pro Mag works so I can buy more at their nice, low price!

Good luck!!

The Promags work fine. If you want something else use Colt mags they work fine as well.

Where does one get modified UZI mags? And what is modified about them?

Well....we just keep running into each other today.

I got my modified Uzi mag from Eagle Firearms.

ADCO also has them.

They have a notch cut out of them towards the top to engage the mag release of the AR.

Look HERE for pics.

I think it's the brand that scaring him off, not the idea of a polymer mag. ProMag does not exactly have a solid reputation.

h,ProMag. My experience with them: HKP7 self-ejecting mags. Great for rapid reload drills, but gets old, after awhile! Re- the plastic rifle. I had a Carbon 15 .223 that I was pleased with (after the infamous chamber correction), so I have no qualms about that, even less, now that BM is behind them.

Thanks, guys!
