Wow! And I thought that the Cammenga EasyMag was a bit over-engineered...

Check out the Count Down magazine from Command Arms. No real use outside of automatic weapons, but still a neat idea. Ultimately, a counter projected on a holosight would be the most ideal setup, but I don't see that happening anytime soon.

For the time being, I'll settle for a Nerf gun with an LED counter that fires at 500rpm.

Some WWI-WWII machinegun did this. Think it was some CZ model. Magazine was on the top like a Bren, so the counter was already in your field of vision.

Actually for the price, it's not that bad. I might get a few just for the factor.

How about an actual GOOD magazine with a level indicator?

It better work like a Pmag!

There was actually a picture of that new round counter mag with the numbers of rounds displayed in the windows totally different.

Yeah, translucent mags are the obvious answer if you really want a good idea of how many rounds you have left.

Yeah, that's why the bottom window was frosted out. It's only supposed to display a general condition of the magazine i.e. full, half, low. As I understand it, the counter works on a tape-measure principal, being pulled out by the follower so of course you can't have the same number showing from two different windows with a 90° difference.
edit: I suppose that you could if you used a set of prisms, but I think that this magazine is frivolous enough as it is.

that is when such as skill is most important. true pro shooters in a firefight, dont just worry about the rounds in their gun, but that of their foe. information is power, and you dont just need firepower to win a firefight.
