well since AR180's use AR15 mags, I see no reason why you couldnt slap a Beta mag in

Remember, however, that the original AR-180 does not use the M16 mag, unless you cut a slot in it and smooth the hump in the side.

The AR-180B is designed to take M16 mags.

Just thought that I'd mention that I'd feel pretty bad about cutting a slot in a $250 Beta C-Mag.

Perhaps towers for the original AR-180 will again become available.

No real reason to post this. Just makes me feel happy!

I really don't understand the appeal of the Beta C-mags. Even at $250, four USGI 30's are now less than $50 all together, and that's 120 rounds.

I guess full auto guys really dig the extended mag dumps, but it seems like a lot of weight to tote around on the weapon, especially on a semiauto.

I must admit that I agree with AvengeR15. And the 30rd mags should become even cheaper as the market smooths out.

But, obviously, 100rds is a magic number to many.

Cause bump firing 30's is kinda like a sex with premature ejaculation, once you really get into you've already shot your load.

Are you talking about the American 180? Those were available with up to 375rd. drums..

nothing like duping 100 rounds really fast even on semi.
