Magpul M16/AR15 mags

anyone know if they make a mag coupler or mag cinch that will fit Magpul mags? I looked on their website and couldn't find anything, and the normal mag couplers for aluminum mags won't work. I picked 5 Magpul mags for $80 (buy 4 get one free) I thought it was a steal cause I like them far better than aluminum mags, and they're a lot more durable. now I just need to find a coupler or two. any suggestions?

coupler

i have a couple of CAA plastic couplers that seem to work with the Magpuls but are just a little tight. i got these with a bunch of parts that i bought from Midway USA that a customer didn't pay for so i was stuck with them. so i just use them. the only part number on them is M16MC.

coupled mags....

Has anyone here actually used coupled mags in real-life situations? I was taught about it in '91 while with the 82nd, and figured out real quick it wasn't for me. I found it to be awkward in the prone, have a tendency to bang on everything, and actually take me longer to pull and re-nsert then just dropping mag while while bringing fresh mag up for insertion. Not saying it's a stupid idea, just a stupid idea for me.

I toyed with it

It's faster than using mag pouches, but it is a bit bulky.
