    Postak good source for info on vintage EBR's!

    Retro Black Rifle www.retroblackrifle.com

    this is a good source for info on vintage m-16s, CARs and various other AR/M16 and other odd AR-15 type rifles.

    one of the things i like about this site as they have the correct info on buffer weights and gas port sizes!

    Thumbs up

    Great site j4. Wow does that bring back some memories for us old Nam Vets here.
    The debate will forever go on about the AK versus the AR, M-16...
    But a lot of us really did put those weapons through hell back in the 60s..
    Mud, dirt, wet, general abuse. But for the most part they kept on ticken.

    I have really noticed the straight 20 round mags were a lot easier to insert.
    I am sure with practice I will get used too the curved 30 round mags.
    But I did kind of like the straight 20s...
    The old timers told me too only put 19 rounds in them or they would jam.
    I never did question their theory. 19 it was.

    Incorrectly assembled mags will do that, along with mags with the feed lips bent in a tiny bit. You should be fine with 20, just don't stuff them until they're full, some'll fit 21 rounds and then they'll jam for sure.
