I know this issue has been talked about a lot. :deadhorse: Comes to mind. I also know that Alex has most likely made his decision. But I will ask anyway.

Can or will there be a option or choice in the type of magazine interface with the new XCR-M lowers? It would be nice if we could choose at the time of ordering between either the DPMS type or the G3 type.

I think there will be a G3 lower in the future,but for now it's going to be DPMs mags.Make sure you e-mail him,so he knows there's interest.

The first ones coming out BETTER take DPMS mags!

I ordered 65 of 'em, purely on anticipation of the XCR-M.

That's 4 sets (to feed the 4 XCR-Ms I intend to order) plus another set to use for practice. 13 mags per set.

Obviously, I wouldn't need to carry more than one set at any one time...... 13 max.
Typically I only carry 9 though (for the '14, FAL, or HK) - but if I only ordered 9 each, there'd be no "room" for breakage, etc.

I've been searching for DPMS mags for a fair price all over the internet, but I can't seem to find any. Any suggestions?

Those are the ones I ordered.

When I ordered, they were 8 weeks behind in filling orders. I'm guessing now, they're probably 3 months behind.

I think depending on demand,there is a good chance,but you have to make sure you voice your preference....

I'm gonna kick myself if the G3 lower comes out soon after the DPMS lower.

I've got a bunch more steel G3 mags on hand than I ordered DPMS mags. Heck, I just gave away 100 aluminum G3 mags. Since the guys I team with all have HK91 rifles as our standard back-up sticks, it'd make MUCH more sense!

But if - as I seem to remember - Alex can't get the BHO to work with the G3 mags, I'll be happy to have the CProducts mags.

And the new Pmags too, though they are not much cheaper than the CProducts mags. i haven't been able to find much info on how the Cproducts mags are working out, only negative stuff mostly (You never really hear about the positive stuff anyways).

I have a ptr91 and around 35 mags for it. Despite the attraction of having all those mags that would work with the xcr-m, if the bho is unworkable-screw it.

that guns ass is on the chopping block as soon as the xcr-m is released.

From my underestanding th bolt hold open will work and so will drop free.That makes the prospect of G3 mags look very much more appealing.I have a PTR-91 too but mine is staying right where she is.That gun is too damn accurate to sell.Not to mention I will have too rifles in 7.62x51 that have commonality of magazines.

It looks like we can do DPMS or M14 mags. G3's cheap and big and ugly.

Siccerely,

Tech


I know I can live with M14 mags.

That is also why I like the G3 mags. I just hope the M-14 mags are not the modified mags like Armalite did with their AR-10.

I would like to revise and extend my remarks.

Would modified M-14 (M1A) mags work? Maybe if one files off the retaining lip on the back of the mag (you know the part that locks the mag in place). And cut a hole in the side for the mag release. It might be worth a shot. :dontknow:
