6mm Dasher/AW magazines

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking of acquiring a 6mm barrel for my AI AT. Does anyone know or have any experience with using a 6mm Dasher from this set up or from the AI AW magazines, i.e. Double Stack Double Feed?

My concern is that maybe the case will be a little short to feed 100%. I don't want to have to modify mags.

I will stand corrected but I believe that you do have to modify the mags to get them to feed reliably. Baldy on here did the conversion for my AI mags to feed 6br. They work flawlessly.

I ran a little experiment recently.

Chambered and old scrap of barrel [just a chambered stub really ] in 6mmBr and screwed it onto an AX.

The double stack mags fed it reliably. It also extracted an empty case properly.

Folk make that mistake with little cases, they think because it will pull a dummy round out, it will work with a fired case.....not always.

Not with you Ian ?

If you mean the AICS 10 rd single stack mag, then , yes they will. Its a replacement spring, follower and spacer. They can be removed, and the original put back, in about a minute.

The double stack AW/AX mag, doesn't need converting.

The AICS, once converted will feed all the ducky little cases such as 6mmBr, Valkyrie, even PPC.
