I don't think 30 & 40 rd BAR mags ever made it past the experimental stages. Just a very few were made for testing. Track down Jim Ballou on this question. If anybody has examples of these mags, it would be Jim Ballou, Kent Lomont, or Bob Landies. They collected all the rare BAR items years ago. If you get a picture, post it for all of us to see.
Frank Hammer's Colt Monitor of Bonnie & Clyde fame is on display at the Texas Ranger Museum in Waco.

Yes sir, Mr Landies would be the guy for you. Call up OOW. From what I understand the 30 and 40 round magazine were not accepted due to them being longer than the extened bi-pod, plus holly cow can you imagine the weight of 40 rounds of 30-06!
