While AR mags are pretty available, many magazines for other guns are rare and the only way you may get them is if a normal capacity mag is permanently modified to only load 10
Also, to go along with this, using pinned 30 round magazines will help you develop the muscle memory and reflexes to use them when you can have real 30 round magazines.

When you absolutely, positively have to look like a "mall ninja" but the local laws will not allow you to own the real thing.

Just kidding! Seriously though, how did the militaries of the world ever manage to survive with lowly bolt actions that used stripper clips?
I have had no problems with 10 rd. mags dropping free and the shorter profile makes it much better when shooting prone or from a bench.

Year ago CMP matches required you to use 'regular' sized magazines. I have three 10 shot shot magazines made during the Clinton Assault Weapons ban era that look like 20 rounders.

Also, as stated above it is easier to swap magazines when they are 'regular' sized.
Good luck

Jerry

Are they crimped or is a block cemented on the inside? I think the latter.

Having a short mag is like having a small weener. All the other guys at the range will make fun of you.

I bought stubbies but that is for bench shooting or dialing in since you usually shoot 4-5 rounds and adjust and sometimes depending on the bench and such 20s and definitely 30s get in the way. My guess to why the 30 is crimped is so it can be identified in low light by the shooter if need be.
