Here's a scan of a pic of a scout dog handler, supposedly inside Cambodia. He's got a 30rd. mag in his '16 and it appears to be a Chinese AK-47 mag. I'm wondering if he had it modified for 5.56(m16) or if the M16 was modified for 7.62x39....any knowledge of this either way? Thanks'

Most likely is an AK mag.
The Navy guys in "Market time" in IV Corps modified a bunch of AK mags to fit their M16s. Gave them a 35 rd mag.
I had a friend who was working with them and was supposed to bring a couple for me when he came back. Unfortunately I got wounded and was gone when he returned.
I tried to modify an AK mag after I came home, but could never get it to fit. Still around here some where.

To me it doesn't look like there's a mag in that rifle at all. It looks like what we're seeing is something behind the rifle, maybe on his belt.
