I would like to see a picture of a 5.56, AK, and 7.62 XCR magazines side-by-side or stacked. It would show how radically curved the 7.62 XCR is or isn't.

The 7.62x39 and 5.45x39 use the same basic case, hense the drastic curve. :2cents:

You mean 5.45x39.

What requires the curve is the case taper. The soviets put a case with a significant taper to maximize reliablilty for extraction. that taper requires a significant curveture of the magazine and spring path.
