Where can one find these sig556 mags that work with the 450? I have looked everywhere, seems they dont make them any more. Thanks

they showed up once a while back (2 or 3 months) for about 2 weeks and then they submarined back down to nowhere again.


i regret not getting a couple at the time, but money was tight so i was playing nice with the budget.

I found some and got them!!. Are there any mods I need to do? It seems like the last few rounds would benefit from a little moon cut in front of the follower.

So I tested these at the range and one works flawless and one had an issue where the last round was kinda off to the side in the mag (because of the original follower ) ....... fluke? Or should I do something?

I have no experience with the sig mags, but I know when I was playing with a few different 5.56 mags, I ground down the follower to give it a shallower angle. This helped prevent the rounds from hanging under the feedlips. Sometimes a round still ended up under the feedlips, but it didn't effect cycling.

I will give this a try, thanks . I heard the sig mags work as they are but it just seems they work “better” as is.....
