im a bit new to this AR thing, so you guys are probably getting sick of me asking so many damn questions... anyway, i saw an AR with what i believe was a 2 drum magazine on it. How many rounds do these hold? where do i get them? how much $? and do they feed well? Also i noticed most gear made for holding mags is made for the 30rders, i guess this is what our military is using... why not use the 40 rd mags?

Your talking about a Beat-C mag holds 100 rounds, approx $250 new. Most 40 round mags have problems that I have seen, some work but are expensive. Best suggestion is for USGI 30 round mags.

I dont own a Betaman so I dont know how well they work.

Your in Cali right, thay may change some things.

At a certain point it become pointless. A 40 limits your ability to go prone, its heavy, could get stuck on things. Its not worth the extra 10 rounds.

Betas and MWG drums work well. The Beta obviously is more versitle.

USGI 30 rd mags
BETA-C 100rd drums

are the only two i would recommend, but the beta is too expensive for practical purposes for me, so i stick w/ usgi

the 40 rds are just too unreliable and bulky

Even this weapon:
The Colt Automatic Rifle, is listed as coming standard with a 30 round magazine (and being compatible with the C-Mag). Colt ought to know, eh?

I know you are in Kali. However, as a warning to anyone in Ohio watch our stupid laws.

In Ohio any firearm except a .22 rimfire with more than 31 rounds without reloading is considered a fully automatic weapon.

Be careful with theh 100 round drums, they can be extremely finicky around dirt.
