Just received 10 110rnd King Arms mags for the AGM MP40...

BUT THEY DON'T FIT!!!

They insert, but don't seem to make it to the mag-catch. Anyone aware of this problem? Know of a mod/fix? Or am I screwed and need a different brand of Magazine (not that there's much out there...)?

It's a little more... uh... French...? Than I can handle, seeing how I don't speak or read the language.

It's only pictures... The text are the re-enactors' names, unit name, and background of the picture

Well, they are decent for the price. They were not giving a perfect feed in my mp40 without a magwell modification.

Since I bought these mags a year ago, 2 of them broke out of 5. After the modification, they fed well but I have since replaced them by AGM low-caps which are much more durable.

Just did the mod... Worked perfectly; the mags are in nice and secure!

Thanks, BoGrain!

EDIT: For anyone else who tries this, but it doesn't seem to work, once the mod is done and reassembled, the mags will need a good, sharp smack on the base to seat them. But once in, they're nice and solid!

Putting some new gear to work, including a new, better fitting belt and suspenders from At The Front...




I look at these pictures and start to think... December, 1944...

Thanks, man! Now I need some canvas gaiters to cover up my modern boots...
I figure not bad, considering the pants and shirt are Old Navi, and the jacket is from Mark's Work Wearhouse...

Nice kit!

How much was shipping for ATF? They quoted me some incredibly bullshit shipping costs.

Like 50$ for a 85$ jacket by EMS...

Retailers in the United States tend to use UPS; hence, the brokage fees get very expensive.

They actually offered me both.

And EMS is supposed to be much cheaper than UPS normally, no?

Anyway, <3 WPG
