I know you guys are working on a Quadstack Magazine for the AR-15/M-16 Family of weapons. Surefire beat you to the punch as you well know and this leaves you trying to enter a market that has competition. You will do well with it, but you wont do as well as you had once hoped.
So I have an idea for you. Take that Quadstack concept, and apply it to a weapon system that could really use it. The AK-47. As you guys are locked on and high speed, you guys know that the AK-47 is a great weapon with a lot of fans world wide. You also know that the AK is limited when the Shooter has to drop down into the Prone shooting position. You are forced to be up higher from the ground than you may want to be in a dynamic active situation, or you have to tilt the weapon or even go all the way sideways. This is less than optimal. So I propose that you make a Quadstack AK Mag that is as short as possible, while still holding 30 rounds, and then another one of higher capacity going no longer than standard AK length, maybe 40, 50, or even 60 rounds. Personally, I’d stick with the Short 30 for most situations. This would allow the AK Operator to prone out nice and low and still have a full capacity mag on tap. Every serious AK Operator in Western Civilization would be lining up to buy these.
You make a Short 30, and you’ll have a Home Run product that isn’t a cell phone case. If you hustle, you can get some of these ready for SHOT Show.
Please consider this. Thanks.
