Thread: Highly trained weapons specialist at work

    I will say none of us are "trained" well enough to do that. I am not sure even if someone showed me how to put the magazine in backwards I'd be able to do it. I sure hope this is just some sort of photo op and not a real life situation.

    Okay, I've seen this picture posted several places and I decided to try this trick myself.

    Just a moment ago, grabbed my m4gery (DPMS lower) and a 30 round mag (empty)

    I've tried every different way I can think of to fit it in the mag well wrong. Backwards, upside down, upside down and backwards. It only goes in correctly, or upside down curving forward.

    I guess if you're pretty strong and really force it, or you use a big hammer(!), you could get the mag in the well the way she has it.

    I'm thinking the picture is not a true reflection of reality...:nuts:

    And what is up with that elbow?

    Ok I tried the same with my Armalite lower and NDS is correct. There is only one way the mag is going to go in and stay. Unless they used a BIG hammer. Has to be a photochop!

  6. OMG I think you are right it is upside down.

    Will a .223 even chamber a round if in backwards? I can only assume that she slapped the mag in backwards without attempting to chamber one. Sure would be fun to be their gunsmith if she did try to put one in....

    Nope. You won’t even be able to get the mag far enough up the mag well to get a round near the chamber. The mag well has a groove which only allows the mag in with the bullets facing forward (inserted the correct way). The groove will allow the mag in upside down with bullets facing shooter but there is nothing for the mag catch to grab hold of. So as soon as you turn the rifle horizontal the mag falls out.
