    After extensive google searches, does anyone have any knowledge of where to find these? It looks as though Bushmaster makes a 26rd mag, but it looks as though it is just a converted 6.8 mag.

    Anyone have any experience with these? I have a few 30rders that work fine, I would like a straighter 20 rd though.

    7.62x39 mags require different angles than 5.56x45 mags. if you look at the 7.62x39 mag you'll see a closer angle resemblance to an AK47 mag than to a 5.56 ar mag. a straight mag in x39 is not possible because x39 casings are almost conical in shape as they are wider at the head stamp and get narrower the closer it gets to the neck.

    as per lower cap mags, since the AR requires a certain amount of the magazine to be a straight line(to fit the magwell) I am not aware of any 20 round mags that can operate without a high curvature.
