And, speaking of enhanced-capacity 5.56x45mm NATO (5.56mm NATO)/.223 Rem. 4179 STANAG AR (AR-15) magazines, MagPul Industries has just filed a patent application (#: 20100126053) for a quad stack 4×2 AR mag.

MagPul Quad Stack AR Magazine 1 <!  :en  >MagPul Industries Developing 4x2 Quad Stack Magazine (5.56mm NATO): Enhanced Capacity AR Mag (4179 STANAG)  <!  :  >Here’s how The Firearm Blog describes the magazine’s operation:

The design is quite straight forward. A central partition separates two dual staggered round stacks. Two springs are used, a lower stronger spring and a weaker top spring, which are joined by spring slicer.

The magazine has a constant curve geometry. Interestingly, the transition area (16) is asymmetric in order to stagger rounds correctly.

The follower is very interesting. Two bails (58a and 58b) are spring loaded. When the follower is pushed against the central partition they part and reveal a hole which allows the follower to descend below the partition.

The Firearm Blog estimates the magazine’s capacity at approximately 50 rounds, and deems it “ideal” for the USMC’s HK M27 IAR (Infantry Automatic Rifle).

MagPul’s quad-stack mag patent application follows Iszmash’s announcement that one of the major features of the AK-200 rifle/carbine/SBR will be a 60-shot quad-stack mag.
