I hope these mags are dirt cheap because the competition has better mags in terms of capacity.

T4.1 had that. The 'Forward Assist' plunger- functional or cosmetic?

looking at the pics of the mag, it appears that the FS rounds are rotated 90* to the left midway down the front of the mag. This would allow them to do a 180* turn at the bottom of the mag and come back up the rear of the mag. 15-20 rds is my guess. Alot like the old RAP4 mags, but for First Strikes. As I recall, RAP4 showed a similar mag design in one of their videos as an additional type of dmag they were planning to produce.

Are you saying that based on the presence of that almost helical looking rib?

I applaud you for your efforts. you have made a great milsim marker. However, given the current political climate with respect to gun control, I can only see these types of markers serving only as a detriment to our sport for a MULTITUDE of reasons.

I would recommend that you try and market these systems to police forces and the military. Although I would hold off on the department of defense for a while. Sequestration will keep them from buying these from you.

There is one thing that this marker has going for it. It looks like it is milspec for all of the AR-15 parts so you can put MAGPUL/Daniel Defense furniture as they have on there. Maybe even replace the stock grip with MAGPUL or CAA? I'm not into the whole larger marker thing. Though I am enjoying pistol play.

Exactly. That rib has to be the feed path twisting 90. And with the winding mechanism, that mag most definitely makes a U. This is a first for First Strikes. Very sweet.
