Massive Firepower: The BETA MAG? in 7.62mm
By Chris A. Choat
The Beta Company has been known for their “C” Mag ever since the mid to late 1980s. At the time, the magazine was advertised as holding an unheard of 100 rounds of 5.56mm or .223 ammunition.

Since then there have been several attempts by other companies at producing a firearm feeding device that rivals or exceeds the BETA MAG™. These have met with varying degrees of success. Some work and some don’t.

The Beta Company has set the bar when it comes to high capacity feeding devices with their BETA MAG™, even being adopted by police and military units worldwide. The drum has the definite advantage of time saved when reloading. When these drums are used in a military environment, this may be the difference between life or death.

For those that may be unfamiliar, the Beta BETA MAG™ consists of two 50-round drum magazines hooked together that feed a single “tower” in the shape of a standard magazine. The drums are spring driven and feed alternately from either side to produce a constant 100-round supply of ammunition. With the drums feeding from alternating sides the magazine does not become lopsided as it unloads. This is all done with a magazine that protrudes down from the bottom of the weapon in less space than a standard 30-round 5.56 magazine.

High-Cap AR Mags
By Guy Neill,
In the heat of battle, you might not have time to reload!

The highest-capacity magazine currently available is the Beta Company’s C-Mag. It’s been around a while and has been used by the military. It has proven reliable and capable. It avoids the long length problem by using twin 50-round drums.

With two 50-round drums, one to each side of the central mag tube, the short length, top to bottom, allows prone or bench use and balances the weight evenly. Since pushing two columns of cartridges together creates friction, graphite lube is recommended for best results.

The Beta C-Mag has an elegance and panache unmatched by the various box magazines. When you need a lot of ammunition ready to go, the Beta C-Mag will deliver. Long-term storage loading is not a problem with the Beta, either.

 Beta offers two loading tools depending on your needs. The Personal Loader loads loose cartridges and the Speed Loader uses stripper clips to load the magazine. The Personal Loader was used here and worked well.
