30 round magazines

Post by RJC »

I recently purchased an M2 carbine. I want to buy a couple of 30 round magazines that will feed efficiently.

Any suggestions?

All aftermarket are garbage. Get a new in the wrap USGI 30 round mag. I'd say a $75-125 adventure. If you got a selector switch, original Korean War M1, full auto, I am sure you can find one at a large local gun show. Watch out for reproductions with correct markings.

definitely agree with 72 USMC, get a USGI one. aftermarket ones are total garbage and only good for shoot at for target practice or for practicing immediate action skills
