Taping magazines together is a practice that dates back to World War II. There are advantages and disadvantages to coupling magazines together. On one hand, it may help speed up reloads, but on the other hand, you’re dealing with a heavier and bulkier weapon. If you choose to do so, an actual magazine coupler would be the preferred way to affix two magazines together. However, if you find yourself in a field situation, you can improvise with some 100 mph tape. Watch the video below to see Garret Machine, an Israeli SOF veteran, illustrate how he does it.
