Its actualy an idea i just got not long ago. Im going to look into it more today. I will let everyone know what i figure out. Im thinking of using the spring mechanism from a 30 round ak mag. I welded a mag for my old shotgun not long ago and i didnt cause any flaws on the inside of the mag so i should be good there. after the weld i will sand the welds smooth, primer it to hide any flaws then paint flat black to match the gun. After that i will try the spring mechanism. hopefully its a go. If anybody has any ideas let me know. Thanks
Im wanting it more for plinking fun. Couple of my buddies have the ak's with 30 rounders and also armalite AR10's with 30 rounders. I guess i kind of feel left out. Haha. As far as the bipod goes. Im a bigger guy and actualy prefer a taller bipod but that does vary from person to person. If anything its a good challenge!
I didn't think the AR-10 had 30-round magazines. I thought the highest for AR-10s were 25 rounders. I have looked at the AR-10 mags and wondered if they can be mod'd to fit the FNAR. Same can be said about modifying the AR-10 PMAGs.
it sure would be nice to be able to afford to rattle off a bag of 30 rd mags
imm having problems finding ammo up here
seems like anything decent is all gone
unless you are willing to pay the inflated prices
anybody got any to spare
but you might wanna loolk into the hk g3 drum mag to convert
if your gonna put the effort into it
either that or get real good at magg change out
then challenge your buddies to try and keep up at the 600 yd steel plates
then maybe you will relize what the fnar is about
any way have fun and shoot straight
Thanks phlatty i will look into that drum mag. I know the fnar is a long distance sniper rifle and thats why i bought it. (hunting out west) but i also wouldnt mind blasting a quick thirty rounds out of it and have some fun at the range too.
You've got me itchin' to try making a few.
I love a challenge, and am pretty good at metal plasma, welding, soldiering, blacksmithing, etc...and it'd be cool to modify "comparable" .308 mags to fit the FNAR.
However, it would really really suck to screw up my FNAR with a bootleg homemade mag!
What if you take a factory fnar 10 round clip and tig welded a 20 rnd DPMS mag or aM14/M1A mag to the bottom of it? Then try the 30 rnd AK spring. I'm new to the FNAR, just got mine last Friday. But being a typical man,by friday night was already thinking of some way to fab a bigger clip! I was wondering about the spring though. The AK spring just might be the ticket. Now I just have to wait and find a 5 or 10 round mag for the fnar, not going to waste a 20 round mag if it doesn't work. Thanks for the idea for the spring.8)
