I also noticed how he was using the mag as a makeshift mono-pod. Very very interesting.

most pics I've seen, the soldier does this. From what others on here have said, probably because the handguards heat up so quickly.

The rifle was normaly held by the magazine. Many soldiers were issued the weapon in place of the Mp-40 and it was a more natural feel. I found that they are simply easier to hold this way.
