Strange AR-15 Magazine Spotted in Philipines

    A reader noticed this M16 magazine, being carried by a militiaman, in a video clip on Al Jazeera.

    The magazine’s geometry is like none I can recall seeing. A couple of people suggested it could be a C-Products 7.62x39mm AR-15 magazine, but it is definitely not (see photo below).

    Can anyone identify it? I think it is probably manufactured by the cottage gun industry in the Philippines.

    I founded TFB in 2007 and over 10 years worked tirelessly, with the help of my team, to build it up into the largest gun blog online. I retired as Editor in Chief in 2017. During my decade at TFB I was fortunate to work with the most amazing talented writers and genuinely good people!
