    Default L2A1/C2A1 30 rd Magazines

    Does anyone have any information on the reliability of the 30 rd magazines issued with the Australian L2A1 or Canadian C2A1 rifles? Thanks. John

    if they genuine military mags, and not some commercial aftermarket one, they should perform as well as the 20 round.

    BTW, the L4A1 BREN Magazine (7.62) will also work in a inch FAL

    The L4 Bren magazine is designed to be used upside down, if you want to use it in an L1A1 you need to stretch the spring a little. That will solve the misfeed problems.

    We were only allowed to use the L4 mag in the SLR in emergencies.

    In the 3rd Battalion, II Corps Mobile Strike Force (Mike Force) our Australian, WO2 Ray Simpson, who won the VC carried an SLR with a 30 round magazine in the rifle and 8 more 20 round magazines in M14 ammunition pouches. I do not remember him having any problems with the 30 rd magazine, just wondered if anyone else had any experience with them. John
