Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Do they work ? I know what the book says, but does anyone have any genuine practical experience ? (We all know that the SASC pamphlet Nazis may say one thing when in fact.............)

    The SASC believed the bumf thrown to them of H&K 'designing' new mags for the A2, when we all know that Hermann the Sturmann went out back and took a pile of mags they've been making for years for the G41, (STANAG version of the H&K33E,) and charged the MOD for R&D costs.

    As to using the A1 mags in the A2, I wouldn't use them at all given the choice. However any US issue ones such as Adventure Line or Colt all work without a hiccup. Sterling mags are fine too.
