25 round mag? Is that correct?

Is it the same size as a standard mag on the exterior? I have some C Products mags I got from AIM, but I haven't seen any marketed as "25 rd".


ETA: Nevermind. I now see the "6.8" and assume that's a caliber, so these aren't .223 mags.

It's amazing how many calibers are in existence. I don't pay attention to the uncommon ones.

They are probably just 5.56 mags with 6.8 followers.

I bought a dozen 25rnd 6.8 mags off a guy for $5 ea and swapped out the followers to 5.56 ones.

Same mags, different followers.
The 6.8 is fatter, making a 30rnd 5.56 into a 25rnd SPC.

I was just adding that if someone wanted, they could swap out followers as 6.8 mags are just 5.56 ones with different followers.
The "hump" on the 6.8 followers are taller

I have early early C Products mags that are marked 5.56 on the sides but came with a 6.8 follower.

The dimensions of the new 6.8 mags are a bit more "open" front to back on the inside , but by swapping in a 5.56 follower, it can be used as a 5.56 mag.

Just something I was throwing out there.

I just took a set of calipers to a 6.8 mag and a 5.56 Colt, Parsons, Stoner and Center mags, all dimensions are virtually the same with only minor variances between them all.
