Has something changed since then? Man, I need to cruise the other cesspool boards more... I see it now, though - it's on the mfgr site.
I thought the whole point was same upper section for 10/20/30rd mags. Oh well. Guess reliability is a better call for the guys who get to have them.
I've handled the ARC and I can say that I much prefer PMAGs and Lancers to them. This is partly due to the fact that I can disassemble and clean PMAGs and Lancers. TD suggests dunking the ARC in soapy water to clean it however I do not like not being able to scrub or thoroughly dry the individual components manually. Additionally, the raised portion of the mag that forms the seal with the magwell makes extraction from mag pouches a bit more cumbersome. For those who think getting a PMAG out of a pouch is bad, they'd hate the ARC.
