Aw mags & Aics mags

Recommended Posts

Hi there gents , is the mag release on a Aics mag shorter than a AW mag 10 SHOT, in my HABU it runs Aics mags , so if i want to run AW mags will i need a longer  mag catch to run the mag , cheers Lee

Lee, I don’t know they answer to mag catch length, I can measure AW mags if it helps? but it may not be the only issue - AICS (AFAIK) are double stack single feed. AW are double stack double feed.

Let me reiterate,  the action im having can use Aics and Aw mags. But as to if i put pressure on mag system   ie rest on mag ,i am led to beleive , i might have bolt drag runnig IACs, and if Aw i dont 👍.can you measure your Aw catch cheers Lee

Actual mag catch on rifle is 41.23mm
