Surprised it would seat. I had issues getting a 5.56 thermold mag to seat properly in my SCAR. Hope that works out well, lord knows those people need more mags.

He modified the mags some how, not sure what he did though.

Problem I ran into was that "ridge" that goes around the mag about halfway down. It's supposed to line up with the magwell on ARs but apparently their tolerances are really crappy or the SCAR is slightly different so the mag wouldn't seat completely and just fall out no matter how much you banged it.
