I've been waiting awhile to get a c-mag for my HK. Anybody know when they'll be out? The site just says 2006 and I don't get any response from Beta.

The M14 100rd Beta mags will be out around June or July, with the G3 and FAL towers to follow later this year. I'm sure there are plenty of gunsmiths who will be making aftermarket towers before then.

Here's a little FYI as to why the M14 mag is being released first;

and I quote--

"I didn't get a lot of details on the military platform the 100-rd 7.62mm Beta is intended for, but the application is very specific. The weapon will be an M14, but the platform is going to be one of the robot vehicles that is being developed. That's why the large magazine capacity, no thumbs on the robot, it can't reload."

Soooo, they're making the magazine for an experimental robot that might not be ready for another year or so. And making the other .308 guys wait for our turn at the fun. Allright. That's cool. I'll just keep buying 20 rounders.

I'm sure they got a large government contract for these or the prospects for one which is always more profitable than us civies. They are in it to make the most money possible and the US government is the quickest way to money.

That is exactly the reason Beta Co even considered making one in 7.62x51.
