At least it seemed odd to me. There was a dealer, had a bunch of Oly AR's on a table brand new. Next to one was a 20rd mag that he said came with the rifle from Olimpic Arms. This mag looked like the top part of a 20rd and the bottom half of something else 10rd??? It was clearly two mags put together. Had the cut line and 3 rivits?? you could clearly see. The floorplate said Armalite. |------------| | | | Top part | | of mag | | | | | | * * | |------------| | * | | | |------------| My picture sucks but this is where you could see the cut lines and rivits. Weird...anybody else ever seen anything like this? Well this board does'nt show spaces evidently. Here is a crude scetch and there may have been 4 rivits.

The "Frankenmags" that came with the Bushmasters look like that.

Why cut a 20rd mag and stick a different bottom half on it?

Since they can no longer sell NEW Hi-cap mags they take new 20 rounders and modify so they are only 10 rounders. I have heard that Bushmaster is now making 10 round mags that aren't a butcher job.
