20 round 5.56 Mags

#1
I'm not sure if is the right place to ask but can you get 20 rnd 5.56 mags in the UK that fit a sa80 as I'm deploying next year and thought This was a good idea.

before i get slated its only an idea.

Wouldn't a mag of 30 tracer do the job? 20 round mags are available and most should fit but it doesn't follow that they will all be reliable. I suppose you can test some and see how they run.

Southern Gun Company carry a lot of AR15 stuff.

Clear plastic mags? The Canadians (and the Danes, and the Dutch etc.) used Thermold mags. These are both plastic and crap, but are black not clear.

Magpull among others make some pretty decent plastic mags, so not all non-metal mags are useless though.

Do you know where the transparent mags are actually from?

Why not just fill all your mags with 4-bit?

If you need to indicate a target, just fire 4 rounds at it.

Edit: If you're feeling particularly nerdy, chuck a few extra tracers at the top and bottom of each mag. The one's at the top are for target indication. The one's at the bottom are to remind you that you've lost count.

HK are producing them at the moment - 200g lighter than the current issue. (I think there might be a bit in this months Squaddie Rag.
