Yes they should be "STANAG" magazines. The SR-15 and 16 are AR-15 derivitaves. The only one you have to watch out for is the SR-25 which is a whole different ballpark. Which would be like trying to put a STANAG mag into a SCAR-H or something stupid like that.

OK. I'll explain it in a more general way. I just assumed that most people on ASC knew what a STANAG mag was.

Anyways, it stands for Standardization Agreement, a NATO thing where members use common things (ie. calibres, comms, map symbols/blocks, etc.).

STANAG magazines are standard M4/16 magazines made for use with the standard 5.56x45mm NATO round.

As for the SR-15 and 16, they stand for "Stoner Rifle", an AR-15 (Armalite model 15) derivative made by KAC. Note that the Armalite was made by Eugene Stoner and I believe the "SR" to be some sort of homage to him however this is only speculation.

The SR-25 is actually chambered in 7.62x51mm NATO. So what I was saying is that if you (or someone else) has an SR-25 make sure you get the right magazines (since they're different than the regular M4/16 magazines).

To break it down:

SR-15/16, M4/16 (and most other armalite derivitives), SCAR-L = STANAG magazine or M4/16 magazine.

SR25, SPR, SCAR-H and such = 7.62x51mm magazine which is a totally different size.
