      Honestly I couldn't have thought of a more based response than this.
      Practical? Yes but not as much as a thurdy.
      Cool? Yes.

    Economy of scale, more bullet better.

    Shorter, but they have issues with followers even on the modern examples from Okay Ind.
    >Should l buy some?
    If you want.

        Okay Industries and ASC make good 20-rounders. I've used both of them with no problems. You can probably find them on themagshack or on PSA's website, they're out on gunmagwarehouse though.

        i managed to bring it back home thankfully but
        will most likely never do it again. i felt so paranoid going through the airport but it's really cool piece that works in my ar. i had to clean the body, spring, and metal follower though.

    you can keep a 20rd loaded in more bags and cases, like a parachute weapons case individual M1950
    also lighter and handier when you have to carry your weapon 24/7

    back in the 60s?
    more reliable and could be made out of cheaper material

    but modern sickle-magazines are already reliable enough
    and cheaping out on the mag just made them flimsy and ruined the reliability anyways
    and obviously, more bullet is good

    ive got a whole tub of Colt 20 rounders of various shades of metal/floorplates. The ones you want are the .223 marked ones with a "circle 1" stamped on the body.

        ZSR does too. Turkshit but it runs fine. Been shooting through 1500 rounds of it and haven't had any failures.

    20s over 30s only make sens if you want to go as flat as possible while prone. the other real use i can think is pic rel, and only because 30s would stick out badly

    For the same reason people fighting in Ukraine like RPK 40 round mags for everything.

    Volume of fire>pretty much any problem

      >pretty much any problem
      Your post is truthy and your pic is baste, but drum mags have failed every time because more volume of fire isn't worth paying any price at all for, and we don't have pistol caliber machineguns with 500 round magazines for the same reason. It's worth paying a very high price for volume of fire, but not any price.

    They are smaller. Because they are smaller, they protrude less and because they protrude less, gun looks cooler.
