Wondering if anyone has done this. I picked up an excellent Beta C-Mag with all the goodies, problem is, it has a 249 feed tower on it. I didn';t notice it when I got it. I compared the tower to the standard AR mags I have and it looks like the only difference is the stop on the front of the 249 tower. It has a small bead of polymer on it that keeps it from seating all the way in the AR lower. Do I just need to dremel it off to get it to work, or would I need to buy a new AR tower? Any info appreciated. Thanks much.

I say go to the betaco.com web site and order up a new AR tower for $14. I have a feeling that your gonna need it anyways after you try to modify the M249 tower.

I obtained one of those m249 betas.  I simply took off the tower and filed the offending part down till it would fit in the AR.  Works fine.

if you do order the new tower you will need to either remove a few of the dummy rounds from the one you have or else order the ones for the m16 tower.  I forgot if it was 2 from each row or something like that.  If not you won't get the full 100 rounds into the mag.

Thanks all for the info and feedback. I'm pretty cheap, but for $14 I'll probably do the new feed tower. Thanks much.
