There's this... unfortunate pricing hockeystick when it comes to AR mags.

$7 for a 30rd aluminum GI mag? totally doable

$12 for a 30rd pmag or other polymer? absolutely attainable.

Just paid $18 for a few 40rd pmags.

But above that, prices start to scale rapidly. your best cost per capacity is to buy a goatload of aluminum GI mags. your highest capacity at a not-insane price is probaby a 40rd PMag with a +5 mag plate on it, to give you 45 in one stick. but when it's $12 for only 5 more bullets, I start wondering if it's better just to grab more mags. After that, we're talkin like... $100 for the Korean 100rd drum, or $120 for a D-60 from magpul. the other 50/60rd drums I've seen have been likewise expensive.

And all of that makes a belt-fed upper seem cheap.

Yeah I want a d-60. Just because it will look cool though. Probably will just get a dozen pmags and some duct tape.

I think having two 30 or 40 round magazines taped together is your best bet. Tarrant got it right.

Given the price, weight and height, two 30rd is probably your best bet

Awesome! Glad to hear this.

My AR-15 had the trigger pin pop out but other than that it's been a good gun. Never made a ghost gun before but would like to.

It's really high quality. Get the Dewalt router they recommend. You could do thousands of these receivers with this thing. It's good stuff.
