    Default AR-15 Coupling Magazines

    .




    A company called CROSS Industries makes 10 round AR-15 magazines with a specially designed floorplate that allows to couple the magazines by attaching the floorplates together.

    The result is an assembly consisting of two 10 round magazines attached together upside down with overall dimensions similar to a standard 30-round magazine



    The company doesn’t clearly specify on their website at what applications this coupling solution can be most beneficial. I think that most likely, the main market for this product will be the states and countries that have a 10 round magazine capacity restriction.

    By having such coupled 10 round magazines, you should still comply with the legislation but have an arguably quicker reloading possibility and overall magazine shape similar to the 30-rounder fitting the standard pouches. Now, keep in mind that these are just my assumptions and you need to make sure you are not breaking your local laws.

    When do you think they'll learn that we will always find a work around to frivolous laws.
    Wish I thought of it.

    Not to keen on the exposed rounds hanging down like that.

    Other versions of this "idea" already exist.

    I have a few of these kicking around.

    The rounds hanging out of the bottom are less concerning with a rotary mag.

    I guess the only REAL difference between this product and any other mag coupler is the fact that the profile is kept similar to a standard 30 rd mag.
    For pouches, this is good. In use, I would think that a "normal" coupler would be faster since you don't have to "flip" the magazine to do a mag change, just lower the empty mag, shift to the side slightly, and insert the second mag.

    the geometry of flipping it is just awkward. far easier to buy "ban" mags in a non-ban state and bring them back.
    oops... did I just say something illegal?

    Only if you said it in NJ, NY, CA, CT, MA, RI, DE, MD, Washington DC, or Cook County IL.

    You can't frikking legislate morality or safety. The person hell bent on destruction will always find a way (look at Toronto).
    OK, rant mode off, I have the Ruger 10-22, and while I like the 25-30 round mags, I DON't like the "star mag" type of thing or even 25 rounders that clip together (like butler creek - one up- one down) the thought of dropping it in the dirt (even shooting prone with the bullets pointing into the ground ) bothers me (dirty bullets can go boom) I would rather just carry a pouch full of not linked 10 rounders facing the same direction.
