Why don't they put magazines (chargers) on the back of the rifles?
>>
Because that's extra weight on your rifle, changes the cog, and requires near disassembling the butt stock to get a mag yoo could just carry in any other method better. Hell having that mag in a breast pocket is a better plan.

You have clearly never shot a gun in your life.
Just imagine having to open the butt stock every time you want to reload
>>
>>50022376
I think he means it would be a spare emergency mag that could be used as a last resort type thing.
>>
>>50022346
I remember firing a .22lr lever action rifle in my youth where you'd put the rounds in the back of the stock and a spring would push them forward.
>>
They used to just munt one to the outside of the A2/ A4s
>>
>>50022346
design one with a spring mounted retaining system
>>
>>50022346
More complex mechanism = more expensive and prone to failure, reload is harder, and shifts more weight to the back which increases the need for a compensator. And it doesn't really offer any value gained.

If you want a back magazine, look at bullpup rifles. They're a thing already and allow a shorter overall gun while maintaining the same barrel length (important for both velocity and legal compliance for those who care).

there are mounts to mount a magazine on the stock, the handguard or a V shaped mount to have double magazines in the gun. there's also mounts that mount the magazine sideways from the mag well for soldiers in places where regulations demand that they dont walk around with a mag in the gun.
>>
>>50022381
I think I remember that too. Was basically a tube fed .22lr but you load it from the back instead of the front, right?

Emergency mag anon. Like you're in an emergency or something.

I just keister my extra rounds. Takes some practice but I'm already up to 43 9mm or 14 5.56mm

>>50022479
In that situation just one extra bullet is enough
>>
>>50022433
Yeah, held like 10 rounds or something.
>>
>>50022479
If you're in an emergency, would you rather go digging around in your butt stock, or just grab the spare mag you keep for these situations on your rig? And don't tell me you cant fit an extra pouch on the molle, there's always room.
>>
>>50022783
Its the mag for when the mags in your rig run dry...

just add another pouch to your rig instead of adding pointless weight to your gun. that's all you have to do.
"im in an emergency, i need more ammo"
so carry more ammo dumfuk

a bomb truck, an artillery tractor, an anti-air modification of the M2 Bradley, an artillery piece, a bayonet, an AT-Mine, a short-stroke AR-15, a cargo airline based in the United States, a 1916 German two-seat experimental aircraft, a 1917 Italian flying boat fighter prototype, a 1930s British experimental monoplane, a former New York City Bus route in Manhattan

This was very common back in the day. Many old rifles had compartments for extra cartridges held in the stock. This was called a "cartridge trap"; see picrel. Also back in the days of muzzleloaders there was often a compartment in a rifle stock or the butt of a pistol barrel to keep spare caps.

I suspect the reason it isn't done today is because the average battle rifle mag is too big to fit into a stock, and I doubt it would be of much benefit anyway.

>>50022872
this, if we're talking combat situations. I can see the cartridge traps making sense for a hunting gun where it's just an easy way to carry a handful of cartridges (which is probably all you need anyway) but it's just dumb for combat.

Its an extra, something that you can add onto your kit withouting consooming more. Like if you're really going to larp and want as much mags on you but Amazon no longer is able to ship you your chinkshit pouches overnight.

I'm not the dumb "muh emergency" faggot OP. if he wants to carry an extra magazine on his gun and be a retard, and then argue that his point is to "not buy more equipment" then a jungle mag is the simplest solution
>>
>>50023079
>without consooming more
>has to buy a novelty consoomer aftermarket stock to be able to fit a mag in
its a terrible idea with the sole exception of the rifle being designed as a breakdown survival gun specifically designed to carry the one magazine you'll need in the stock.
A better idea would be to fill a pocket with stripper clips for an emergency if you foresee yourself getting into such an extended firefight that you have to disassemble your stock to get another magazine
>>
>>50023123
Jungle mags suck for carrying after use cod kiddie, just stop. Thats worse than leaving the extra mag at base.
>>50023132
Sure the stock is consoomer nonsense if you go out of your way for one.

correct, jungle mags are dogshit. but if the argument is "why not have a spare mag and pointless weight attached to my gun" then a jungle mag makes more sense that some stupid fucking buttstock gizmo you have to fiddle with before getting the mag in.
consider buying more pouches before the hypothetical emergency that stops you from buying more pouches occurs.

you have to go out of your way for one because it's a terrible idea for any modern magazine fed rifle. I guess you could get away with picrel but it'll be flimsy and unreliable.

was just gonna ask this same question as I'm on verge of my first AR build in CA and seems like a no brainer.

AR stocks got hollow for cleaning kit so WTF not make it same shape as 30rd mag then the CLEANING KIT could also fit in mag pouch, or even MAG WELL for handy storage.

Yeah, make CLEANING KIT box same shape as mag and even put WTF a mag has to clip into mag well so it wont fall out and get lost, etc.

>>50023387
I actually own one of these. I keep a magpul 20 rounder in it, and i also have a 20 in the magwell. It is kinda gimmicky, however, consider the following.
A: i didnt pay for it, a dude just gave it to me.
B: if for nothing else, it kinda does change the balance if you use a capacity of mag greater than 10, a 30 is to much rearward balance, the 10 is to little, a 20 is just right.
Considering that i have this mounted on a 16in piston ar, it actually does help with handling.

Granted i am a sample size of one, who happens to be autistic, whose captcha was 8JEW8
>>
guns fire horizontally. thus you want the ammo to point the bullet in the same orientation. if you put a mag in the buttstock the rifle would have to rotate the ammo prior to firing it, which is all around stupid, inefficient, and way more complicated.

it just makes sense when you look at a handgun, what the would a handgun look like the other way? a 24 inch piece of steel pipe?

now if you want a rifle to shoot into the sky or into the ground, then yeah buttstock mags make a lot more sense because the barrel would be up or down not towards the horizon.

Thats pretty cool! Doesn't seem super practical, but how can it be made practical?

Maybe a shotgun could be loaded like that, one shell ata time from the butt.

Maybe a revolver rifle, where you just push in a speedloader from the back.
