The High-capacity Affair

By now it should come as no surprise, Brad Ferguson of theunclegun.com has just about everything one needs to successfully build an U.N.C.L.E. Special. Needless to say, when I leaned of his functional 15-round P38 magazines, I knew they were worthy of consideration, so I bought one. Although expensive—compared to the cost of some magazines—keep in mind they're custom made for Brad by a major U.S. manufacturer and are accurate steel replicas of the carbine magazines used on the TV show. From their one piece construction, to their dual rows of witness holes and sleek matte-black finish, they are without a doubt the most accurate and highest quality "Man From U.N.C.L.E." magazines I've seen to date. As with many things, a less-expensive alternative is available. Triple K produces a 15-round P38 magazine for a fraction of the price. However, concerning matters of accuracy and overall quality, Brad's product wins hands down and should be considered a must for anyone contemplating a functional carbine.
