Are there any good 5 round mags made for an AR? I haven't been looking for any so I don't know.

i believe the smallest is a 10 round as it barely sticks out the bottom of the mag well. magpul makes a magazine limiter. it goes inside the magazine and reduces the capacity by 5 rounds. place one inside a 10 round mag and its now a 5 round mag.

None that I've found...
Most reliable I've found to date are 10 round magpuls with the -5 insert... and even those are finicky... takes some filing to make them actually hold 5 and function reliably, and one or two passes too many, and it's now a 6 round mag...
Hence my recommendation for a 10 round limit... Plenty of off-the-shelf options, and visually identical to a 5 round mag (flush to the magwell, they can't make mags any shorter.)

Of course, all of this is conjecture at best for at least one more year....

You guys were talking about being able to reduce recoil in the sa, well a good friend of mine invented a buffer that does that. It help with muzzle climb. And for the price, well you could never do that to a bolt gun near the cost. Here is a link to his buffer on gunbroker. It is new to the market.

A few years ago I bought two 5rd and two 10rd mags from cheaper than dirt for my AR 47... I believe they are asc...they are the same in size and work well in my AR.

BTW...my AR has a standard lower and doesn't accept AK mags.

Yeah I've taken the bottom off my 10 round, dropped the spring out and thought of putting a wood plug in there and I'm not so certain it would work. I think you'd have lots of FTF with a plug.
I think until somebody makes a reliable 5 round for the AR15 - 10 round magpuls are the way to go for hunting.

They make California compliant ones that are 30 round dimensions and only allow 10 to be installed. I am sure it would not take much to do the same thing for 5 rounds.

While it's technically possible, there's been very few commercial attempts thus far, as there has been no commercial demand (no other states have such a low limit, supply/demand, and there's no demand currently.)

The other concern is that there is no visual means of discerning between a 5 and 10 round AR platform magazine, as they both are outwardly identical in appearance and dimension. (Which is already the minimum functional magazine length.)
In order to very capacity, one must physically unload/load the magazine. This would make enforcement/verification a rather intrusive process for hunters and wardens alike.

Ok. I've pm'ed involved parties. Plural.

Be done now, or thread goes away and whoever can't keep it in check gets a vacation from HPA. All expenses paid.

Last time I'm warning any of you. Period.
