Hm...I had a housemate once who when the seal went on the filler cap of his waterbed...used a condom (unused of course...or so I hoped).

I don't think those are made anymore. I haven't even see those being sold by the milsurp folks at gun shows.

My Magpul mags in .308 have plastic snap-on caps. Not rubber. Not latex :lol:
