The Reason Taped Magazines & Banana Magazines Aren’t Always Used In Field Ops

1. The length of ak-47 style banana magazine makes it difficult to shoot from the prone position with the firearm on the ground. If you have two taped together it makes it almost impossible to shoot accurately unless you have a tripod to stabilize it.

2. The extra weight, particularly of the 7.62 cartridge, makes carrying it for days on end difficult, and slows down your ability to quickly cycle between targets.

3. Feed issues are known to occur on some of these after-market brands. For larger capacity, drum magazines are usually preferred.
