Mag changes are easier with the conversion. The mags slide straight in and drop straight out. Depending on the make of the mag though as some will be tighter than others. Other than the "cool" factor of visible rounds, G36 mags don't really have an advantage. The tabs on the sides are prone to breaking, two clipped G36 mags take up the space of 3 Armalite mags and the tabs snag on everything. Most gear is made to accomodate Armalite mags anyhow. My Arktis vest could carry 8 G36 mags or 12 M4/M16 mags. My TT pouches will only hold one G36 mag each because of the tabs or 2 M4/M16 mags with Magpuls or 3 M4/M16 mags without Magpuls.

I'm going to running my G36 in a high-speed CQB environment only with only 4 mags (that's what the local tournament allows)

I tried it on the course last night... and I can say I was extremely displease at the erganomics of it.. most of the problem came with mag change, the rest of it came from the selector not being very friendly, it tends to flick into auto when I want to stay in and vice versa.

I hope the mag well conversion will be good.

Jugglez, is it possible for your to get 2 more? There's 2 more guys on my team with G36's that've been thinking of switching over to AR mags.

Your 2 teammates will have to mud wrestle for the last one, I won't be re-ordering from Private Parts for another 1-1.5 months.

Got my AR mag conversion installed on my G36 and my god it works well. I don't have any mag wobble, it looks like they had solved the problem pretty well. I am using STAR 30 round real cap mags. I'm going to have to keep my mags loaded to make sure you get 30 rounds out of them though because 4 bb's drop out after mag changes so your getting 26 rds per mag instead of 30 which isn't a big deal in the long run. I'm pretty damned happy. No more G36 mags woo hoo.
