    Are we getting the update today from Chile? I was hoping to have some good news to smile about over dinner but haven't seen anything yet. Could the half ship separately with the issue being with the 223/556 mag compatiblity versus 308 using the new proprietary ones?

    Looking forward to seeing these arrive and get distributed to deserving folks. Thanks CSC for your hard work on this. More guns in the hands of law abiding firearms owners is always a good thing!!!!

    Just FYI, the GS adapter requires any STANAG mag you want to use to be slightly modified to retain it.

    I watched some of their videos, that's a line that should be cut in the back of the mag, right?

    Correct. However I would recommend that you do not perform this on any magazines that exceed the capacity of 5rds of 5.56, or you will have to pin the mag to 5rds as well since you have re-manufactured the magazine for a non-pistol/.458/.50beo firearm variant...

    Thanks for the heads up, makes sense.. I'll stick to PMAGs then.

    What's the scoop now? Updates? Can't they just send a few extra proprietary mags each for the 5.56's, send them on their way to us here and call it a day? Why is Famae foot dragging?
