I'm still in for at least 4, in all the flavors you're going to have them made.

Thanks again, what you've done really is a major milestone in the FAL community.

Talked to the molders Thursday and was told I should have some of the updated mags by the end of this coming week!
Hopefully that will hold true!!!!!!

Sorry it's taking soooo long but it's out of my control as far as making the molds go.

I'm in for a hundred bucks worth. So I guess that's four. I would prefer OD Green but I can certainly live with black!

Thumbs up

I'd like to try a couple in any color just to test them out before jumping in and buying a bunch. If you want a large market, make some that work in the SCAR 17 in black and FDE and I'll take ten of each! Can't find SCAR mags hardly anywhere, and if you do find one, you end up with your pants down around your ankles.........and standing in line at that.

I'd hardly say the SCAR is a larger market right now considering how few SCAR h's are actually in circulation.
I have been wanting one since they came out and my distributor still hasn't received any.

While similar to an FAL mag it is a completely different mag and would need it's own mold. ($25,000)

I have looked into making SCAR mags and still might, but there will have to be more guns on the market before it would be a worth while project.

Considering their are probably at least 100,000 FAL's in the USA the FAL is still the largest market for FAL mags than the RFB, SCAR and LAR-8 combined.

I voted that I would take 10, because there was no option to take 50. (Won't be able to buy them all at once, though.) I'm mostly after higher-capacity mags in black-- 25- or 30-rounders-- but will buy a couple of 20s to help defray initial costs. Can't wait!! With no US-made HTS sets currently available, these are going to save my bacon!

Moses,

I still want 4 to start with, then I'm planning on buying 4 more every payday until I have about 50, or until my wife catches on!!


For those of you that fly under your wife's radar, I have an excellent embezzlement plan.

I pull small amounts of cash out (ATM, cash withdraw from the bank) until I have the amount I need.

Then shoot a Postal M.O. and you're golden!!

Of course this only works with some vendors, but it keeps her seeing my all on my purchases.

That has been on my list of high-profile firearms I'd like to get into my shop. Not that I'm a fan of the SCAR family, personally, but locally I'd still like to get some in because some of my friends/clients really want one.

In addition to a SCAR17, Kel-Tec's RFB, PMR-30 and KSG are all on my high-demand wishlist (actually on 3 wish-lists with Acusport, MT Sports and RSR Group).

But if FN just went with SR-25 format for their SCAR17 the world would be nicer, as Magpul is currently flooding the market with their 7.62 PMAG20's at reasonable prices.

I will be calling the Mold Co. tomorrow to see what's up, I expect them to have me some new revised mags ready this week!!!!

Got a chance to test my first proto type Moses mag yesterday through a 15" short gas system, dealer sample, full auto FAL that I built at CMP Armory about 6 years ago and will post a video soon as the video uploads.

If these will work reliably in a SCAR H, I'll be looking to get 10 in FDE!

Unfortunately SCAR H mags are a different animal and regular FAL mags as well as my FAL mags will not work in a SCAR.

Heard from the molder today and all revisions are finished and I should have some mags to test sometime this week!!!!!
