Wondering what the drum mag is all about? AA12? M4 with drum mag?

The image is being hosted on a graphic design business' server. Surely someone there can show you the ol' "image size" section of Photoshop? :D

If you look, you can see a normal mag in the M4. I don't think the drum is attached to that weapon at all. The angle is off in relation to the weapon too. If it was attached to that weapon, the angle from the weapon would more perpendicular to the weapon. I also see a single point sling hanging down from the weapon so I'm pretty sure it's an M4/M16

Carefully compare the center 3/4 pie shape.

Yeah uh... couldn't you have resized/cropped the pic? I really don't want to see some soldiers a** on my screen... unless it's a she.

Edit - I think it may be a beta mag on a m249.

Yeah, I would agree with the snail mag. Also, you can see where the rail ends in relation to the snail mag, which looks about right for a carbine-length rail. I'm not sure what that USGI mag is doing there, but I don't think it's in the magwell...

I think we have a winner....that's what it looks like to me. It's not currently attached to the weapon though in that picture.

I don't think it's any of the above. It's probably a to go container from Claim Jumper.

There were a ton of these sent out in '04.......they don't make the grade in combat. Total suck.

I have a stack of the MWG90's; they perform reliably and without issue. The early ones had tendancy to dump/double feed from the feed tower being made of a material that was too soft and thin resulting in deformation at the feed lips. Subsequent feed tower design corrected this issue. They are somewhat awkward to fire from the offhand position but actually work quite well for a magfed SAW type setup for firing from the bipod supported prone position.

I would have guessed it's some different type of mag on a SAWM249.

That's no betamag - it's an MWG drum.

I'm surprised he is allowed to use that thing. My unit was pretty restrictive as to what gear we could use--especially when it came to our weapons. In fact one Sergeant got in a world of trouble for putting an M4 stock on his M16. But, unit policy differs in that way.
