Hello, I am attempting to build a replica, 1:1 scale of an M16A2, just for fun. :) I was wondering what the approximate lenght, width and height of a 30 round magazine? Thanks!

I don't have one right at hand, but they are about 5/8 to 3/4" thick, and about 2.30" wide and length is a little tricky because the base curves. Might be a good idea to invest 10 bucks in a beat up one and measure it.

A replica made of what? Why don't you just build an AR15?

Now I dont really give a shit but couldnt ATF consider this conspiracy of manufacturing post ban mags and therefore making this a bad idea? I know its not hard to get the dimensions. Its just a serious question. I know the feds have pulled big bullshit convictions. Im just wondering if anyone has heard of something like this sticking

ARndog- didn't you hear that the provinces are now de facto states? We just haven't gotten around to adding the stars yet! [rofl]

Hmm... sorry, thought I set that to Canada. We're essentially the same, 'cept you guys are allowed real guns, and toy guns that look like real guns. Around here, all we get are shotguns and with the right permits I can put 2, yes, count them you jealous gun zealots, TWO shells in the gun at once! Beat that! Not that I'm mocking our government, but come on already...
