    you can't get high-capacity magazines for the 742 though .. a quick search shows lots of high-capacity magazines for .223 rifles, I couldn't find one higher than 10 rounds for the 742

      And I read there are a few 20 and 30 round specialty aftermarket mags, but they are not worth a crap and jam.  That is the problem with most high capacity magazines.  They are heavy, unwieldy, and the spring has to be so strong to overcome the weight of that many rounds, it tends to overload the receiver, causing it to jam.
