We are greatful that this civilian has taken the time to videotape the MWG 90-rounder being fired from his AR-15. However, disregard whiny civilian remarks about "comfort"; national defense is not a couch potato activity. If your weak arms can't hack holding the M4/M16 at the handguards bent around the 90-rounder drum, then you need to do some weight lifting, push-ups or simply attach a foregrip to a Picatinny rail underneath before pontificating about what's for "show" when one clearly lacks GO.
American infantry is currently out-gunned on the non-linear battlefield in part because it lacks a high capacity magazine drum; the MWG 90-rounder doesn't jam like the C-MAGs do, so we need to STFU and buy them and put them into use with SKEDCO Assault Packs to secure their loading tools and properly protect, camouflage and attach them to LBE when emptied.

We do not suggest carrying several 90-Rounders--just 1 to have in your weapon to START the firefight with FIREPOWER OVERMATCH and complete fire & maneuver capability, and then when empty, transition to 20-30-40-60 round box magazines (camouflaged and numbered to keep track of which ones function properly) thereafter.
Dave Crane of Defense Review on C-MAG:
A Note on the C-MAG: The original C-MAG was also designed and developed by Jim Sullivan. Before The BETA Company (a.k.a. BETA Co.) changed the TDP (technical data package) on the C-MAG, the original design's double-drum magazine body was made from a type of nylon, and the center feed portion (box mag portion) was made of steel and didn't rise above the double-drum portion like it does now. Both of these material aspects were on purpose. Because the double-drum portion was made of nylon, the original C-MAG worked reliably without the need for any type of lubricant. In other words, it didn't require graphite powder lubrication to move the ammo/cartridges around the drums reliably. BETA Co. changed the nylon double-drum portion to a different material (a type of plastic/polymer) and changed the center feed portion to polymer/plastic, in the process making the center feed portion taller (due to the need to reinforce this part to prevent cracking/sheering during firing). One good thing the BETA Co. has done to the BETA C-MAG recently is to make the back plate of the C-MAG clear (Lexan), just like the latest factory Ultimax 100 drum mag (also 100-shots) back plate, so the operator can keep track of his ammo supply visually, during the fight.
