The Danish:



The Netherlands, Denmark, and New Zealand all use the C7, and I believe they all use thermold mags as part of the deal with Canada, but they may have changed.

The British special operations forces now use Diemaco made weapons, atleast the C8 SFW is used, not sure on C7 variants.

Last October, when the Royal Marines were training in Oman, there were some news photos of them with original C7's with fixed carry handle and M16A1 sights. If you do a search you might find the thread here the pictures were posted on.

I'm pretty sure the Canadian Forces now uses metal mags with the C7. However, when we had the fixed carry handle (A1 type) version we were using Thermolds.

That would be the Brigade Patrol Troop.

The Canadians used to use the thermolds, but switched to USGI type mags after problems with the mags melting. In an effort, apparently, to cut cost they had specified a cheaper plastic than the comercial mags. "Thermelts" as they are called can be recognized by a small maple leaf molded into the mag body. An orange (or yellow?) mag was made for use in training. It is made of the same plastic as the others and has the maple leaf.
