Guys, does anyone here know of somewhere that I can order some curved 30 round tubes for my M-14 magazines? I have a few 30 round capacity M-14 magazines from before the ban but they're all straight so I look like a total dork when I use them and if I put a base under the mag when it was inserted it could practically double as a friggin tripod! Am I forever doomed to look like a pie is going to hit me in the face every time I put a 30 round mag into my M-14s?

As far as I know, they don't make a curved mag. YOur SOL. I hope that you had twenties before the ban, they are way more handy.

M14 or mini-14?

M14 mags are straight. Mini-14 mags can be curved.

The 30 round M14 magazines are heavy when loaded to 28, and throw the balance of the rifle. I have never heard of a curved 30 round magazine for the M14 type rifle. Standard GI box magazines are the best produced for the M14 type rifle.

Mini 14 thirty round magazines are curved, and vary in quality. The factory Ruger 20 round magzine is a much better option if you purchased some of these before the ban.
