    Same goes for Beta C mags. I picked one up a couple of weeks after the ban died.

    :D

    I'm more excited about those 50 round teardrops. But the price. Ouch! :(

    From that pic, it appears that the mag would hang off to one side and make the gun unbalanced.

    That's a pretty good price if it works good. I'm paying $250 on a group buy for a 69-rd Uzi drum! :)

    Balance on the MWG-90 is not really a problem. If too weak, you can lay it on your arm. And this is clearly not a patrol-all-day sort of magazine.

    The problem is that its just sort of a junky magazine. The ones I have seen and used had a soft plastic upper part, that wouldn't feed when hot, and wouldn't drop or insert worth a damn, sorta like the original unlike Glock mags.

    Also, its not that reliable. Really hard to load, and only runs 100% when freshly cleaned.

    Doesn't mean I didn't sell one in the height of the ban for $70 profit.

    While I haven't figured it out, it appears unbalanced, but isn't. Guess I'm too stoopid to reason out Y? :p
