Where can I find one of those really cool waffle mags? I have been looking everywhere... Shotgun News, Brownells, CheaperThanDirt, CDNN and gunaccessories.com don't seem to have them. While I'm at it, where can I also find some Colt Sporter 7.62x39 followers?

Thanks guys.

Last time I saw some, they were for the Armalite AR-18 (?). (That is to say, the old ariginal Stoner design) They were over a hundred bux a pop. Don't think they're THAT cool.

Sorry. I have seen pictures of AR-15s (M4-gery string) with this style of mag. I will try to find a image of one for reference.

Do you mean an Orlite? They are black plastic and kinda have a waffle look to them. Thermold is a similar type used in Canada and some other places as well. They are decent mags, but everyone seems to agree that USGI are still the best.

These are the ones I am talking about...
The original AR-15 magazines were made by ArmaLite, the company responsible for the design of the AR-10 and AR-15 rifles, among others. They were aluminum, 20-round magazines and had waffle-pattern ridges, though later examples had only the vertical ridges. These mags are very rare, and are generally collectors' items. Floorplates were stamped: ArmaLite(r) AR-15 Patents Pending CAL. 223 COLT'S PT.F.A.MFG.CO.INC. HARTFORD, CONN.U.S.A.
