Real hard to get low with one stickin out the bottom end of a smoke pole.
Getting low behind your rifle, is a sure fire indicator of a long life.
I have 30s and 42s for my Aug. If you measure from top of scope to bottom of magazine the AR 15 and Aug are both 11.25 inches tall with the 30 round mag in it. Both are 13.5 with the 40 and 42 round magazine in it.
I don't know which is the better trade off, 12 more rounds before I have to start moving around changing mags or 2 inches less in height.
Magpul 50 rnd drum is 11.25 inches from top of scope to bottom of drum in gun.
