Count Your Rounds

#1

EMA Tactical's new Countdown Magazine for the M4 class of weapons, which diverges from the traditional see- through countdown mags by incorporating a an actual rotating counter showing exactly how many rounds remain. The numbers are color coded green, yellow and red to indicate which 3rd of the load you’ve got left. Pretty nifty piece of gear for $25 bucks.
Apparently this is new at the Las Vegas SHOT show.

Clear mags may be simpler and the counter display's location may not be that user friendly, but for the dedicated but numerically challenged rock and roller this could be the next must have add on.

Coming to all branches of Halford's soon.

I'm waiting for one that delivers tracer at the flick of a lever.

Or that sucks the ejected round back in during the unload.

Obviously for Ganstas who can't count past 10 without taking their shoes and socks off innit 8)

A good idea if you ask me. Although clearly not going to be much of a hit with Bullpups due to the position of the counter.

saw these new mags late last year, the guys demostrating them also claimed they were indestructible (compared with exsiting mags), lighter and work better well in sandy places!

At $25 each hardly disposable though if you're buying your own. Are the springs interchangeable with issue STANAG mags?
$25 = £12 give or take a penny
A2 = = £12 give or take a £ well when you are being charged you notice these things.

Not gansta enough; the counter's mounted vertically and on the rear of the mag. Real men fire sideways and from the hip.

Nice idea on someone's behalf but...

Extra complication=something else to go wrong@the worst possible moment*

(*note cool, hip and with-it use of symbols instead of punctuation)

there, just saved you a tracer round as well. (You know when you've fired your last round, your rifle only makes half a noise).

Might come in handy for our numerically-challenged Rock friends. They could simplify things by just having indications for 'F' and 'E'.

C'mon, you know how many rds you've got left by the weight of your rifle in your hands. Tsk, amateurs.

And by the way its balance changes as you bound lithely from crag to crag, heedless of the weight of your helmet, osprey, ammo, grenades, water, medical kit, radio, batteries, gun link, patrol pack, special-to-task equipment...
