My brother acquired a few 40 round magazines by Imperial Defense Services. I did a search (here in ARFCOM) on the name and only found a guy selling some used 30 rounders. I checked the FAQ for mags and found Imperial Defense as a tier 1 for 30 rounders but no mention in the 40's. My brother also said his source has 70 rounders (not that my brother or myself would want a 70 round mag that wasn't a drum). Has anyone heard of 40 rounders and if so, are they any good? Brother hasn't had a chance to try it out yet...

Are these mags for an AR15/M16?

It's not an USA/Western mag so you are good to go. I came across some 40rd PMI mags, like new condition and was pretty impressed with them. They were made with good steel, didn't "flex" like typical USA/Western mags. Still have one left. Holding onto it as a keepsake/novelty item. Some dark forces have been putting thoughts in my head to post it on the EE for sale/trade though.

ETA: As for the 70rd mag, I have seen them. They seem to be USA/Western 40rd and 30rd mags fitted together. Would make excellent mags to practice failure drills (FTF) with.

A client he's doing some work for is a distributor of them. Lastnight I got to see it and it looks like quality to me (not that USA shyte). I'll probably get to shoot it next week to see if it indeed is any good. The client is going to have a booth a local funshow, gave him passes to park and get in, which we'll be using

The IDS 40 rnd-ers are pretty nice. No jams in my 6920 (3 mags full), 6721 (3 mags full) or franken-AR (1 mag). Very stout as well! I'm going to get more. He has a bunch of IDS 30 rnds too, in addition to NHMTG, OKAY, Centers, Colt, etc.... Sat with him behind his tables at the gunshow on Sunday. Very cool guy. Prices are fair and he was hopping trying to keep up with the sales he had going on (6 tables and only him). Sold out of a bunch of stuff. (Drums, Frankenmags, PMI 40's...). He'll be at the big Reno show in a few months. Says that's the biggest show for him as all the Kali guys come over to get the stuff they can't at home

Cool. So where can I get some of these IDS 40 round mags? Thanks.

His supplier (in the UK) isn't reliable enough to sell them over the web and he doesn't want to deal with backorders... guy"s retired and does a few shows a year for fun, I guess. I"m sure I could get some, IM me and I'll see what I can do.
