I'm confused now. I thought PMAGs don't fit in HK416?

You can mod (file down) a the PMAG to fit.

The Magpul EMAG works without any mods.

how far down do you have to file it? Do you have any photos of the a modified PMAG that fits?

My EMAGs work great in my MR556. I'll try my PMAGs tonight and report back but I was under the impression that they will fit but with a slight wobble?

It should be the opposite: FWIW HK416 have a more narrow magwell than an AR. Therefore a EMag will wobble in an AR and PMag won't fit in a HK416. I'm just surprised that they actually modified the mag instead of using EMags like the other HK416 in the picture. If they used modded PMags in HK416 then I assume there is no reliability problem by doing so.

You're right, I was thinking the reverse. In terms of the picture, it could be that the picture was taken before the EMAGs were officially released.

In the pic, the HK416 on the right has a EMAG in it.

looks like they swapped out the buttstocks too.

20 rd pmags work great! No mods needed... I would guess the pmag used was/is mod for use on the HK416.

The magazine in the picture is an Emag.

It's a first gen EMAG. Current production ones have a window on both sides.

I'm loving some of the comments:

What flavor tooth paste did these operators use before they left on this mission and when did they last floss? Now those are important fact we still yet don’t know and facts the nation can’t go another day without knowing…

I'm more surprised to see AAC Suppressors. I thought SEALS preferred Knights Armament suppressors.
