I just read that Promag, yes that Promag, is making 40 round poly mags.

Did I miss this or has anyone tried these? Not holding my breath on quality.

HK 93 Gun Magazine



Really, if you want to make a US mag, make 25 or 30 rounders, IMHO.

Magpul would be awesome to do these!

I am guessing the 93 market, thanks to CAI, would be better sized than the G36 market they currently serve (probably .mil/leo).

I just picked one of these up, for $15 it was worth a shot. Fits really well in my Vector, though the range will be the real test.

As much as I would like to have the extra capacity, I have problems: 1) Ohio frowns upon 31+ round magazines (except in NFA guns), and 2) they are a tad long and look funky.

I have had great promags and crap promags. For $15 I will try a couple out.

By "they work fine" you mean they are 95%ish or they work? 100% all the time
Well he has a century c93 like mine and had to do something to get them and when me and him went to the gun range they worked all the time.

Don't want this thread to die until we hear from someone who cut these down to a 20-30 round size. If so, how'd ya do it? Did the end product function correctly?

Members on ar15.com have tried the magazine and found no problems with them.

Well my 40rd mag showed up today. I havent had a chance to take many pics or give a range report yet, but heres what I can tell you so far.

Pros:
1. The mag seems well made and light weight
2. The mag fits in my c93 easily without any modification.
3. The mag will fall from the magwell freely when the magazine release is pushed.

Cons:
1. The magazine seems a bit bulky, I kinda feel like I'm shoving a siaga 12ga mag in my rifle.
2. The mag has a a little more curve to it, not as much as an ak47 mag but definitely more than the original, kinda looks like an ak74 or siaga 12ga magazine.
3. the mag is about a half an inch longer than the original metal 40 rounder.

I'm not sure when I'll be able to get a range report, if any of you want more pics I should be able to post some after work tomorrow. I't does look like you could modify and shorten theses mags to a 30 or 20rd capacity.
A follow-up post when he got to the range a week later...

Hey guys, had the c93 at the range today. I put 120 rounds through the pro-mag 40 round mag and ti's good to go. No malfunctions what so ever....I'm still not a big fan about the size...but it works and works well...
