Magazines for the lar 8

88 posts in this topic

Who can tell me what and where to get for magazines for my 308. I have a couple 20 rd polymer ones that seem to work good. I have a 5rd and a 3rd ordered that are both metal.That should cover most hunting laws. But I would like to get a couple 10rd mags. I just like the way they fit and the balance. No need at this time to add any unnecessary weight. By the time I get a light and other extras its getting a little chubby <dontknow>

Thanks all

Drop

Does that include looking for 10-round FAL mags?

I ordered two from DSA (took forever to get in) and one from RRA. They seem to work good but they are heavier than my poly mags. Only bought them because I was stationed in Cali (damn Nazi state) . I prefer the poly mags. I only want to keep one of them if you want the other two let me know I'll give you a good price.

Let me know if those mags still need a good home. I have a very nice 308 that plays very well with PMAGs.

The Thermolds are identical to the RRA polymer mags, just don't say RRA on them.

The RRA magazines come with a paper stating "Due to the progressive improvement to the design of the LAR-8 magwell, some magazines may not drop freely from all LAR-8s and/or may require filing of the spacing tab."

It also states that the locking tab may need to be filed so as to allow free movement of the bolt-carrier assembly.

All 15 I ordered functioned 100% in the Elite Operator LAR-8 but needed adjustment of the locking tab on the standard Operator.  All were good in both rifles with the spacing tab.

Do note that polymer files really very easily, like a knife in hot butter!  Keep your file straight and square to the tabs as you file!  Most literally only took four passes with the file.

  The inch mags do not work as well in my LAR8 as do the metric or plastic.

    The plastic direct from RR work GREAT!

KeepShooting makes some decent magazines.  They're about the only source out there anymore for brand new manufacture M3 Greasegun mags.
