All-Steel Construction With Robust One-Piece Body To Handle Extreme Tactical Conditions
Newly designed, 30-round magazine features a strong one-piece steel body built to handle the roughest combat and tactical operations. Precision manufactured to ISO 9001:2000 quality management standards to exceed DoD specs for USGI magazines. Advanced features include a tilt-resistant steel follower and stainless steel spring that ensure even pressure on the round stack for smooth, jam-free feeding. Two-part floorplate with integral lanyard loop removes easily without tools for cleaning and maintenance; floorplate and follower are designed so they can’t be reinstalled the wrong way. Fits minimum-dimension magwells and guaranteed to drop free from mil-spec magwells under its own weight, even when empty. Fits any mag pouch designed to hold standard USGI-spec magazines. Body is precision formed on an 18-stage progressive die system from a single piece of .021" thick 1050 sheet steel and robotically MIG welded for strength and dimensional consistency. Crush resistant to 1,000 lbs. (500 lbs. side load) fully loaded, and impact tested to withstand dropping 1.5m onto a flat concrete surface. Function tested to ensure operation at temperatures from –67°F to +329°F. Body is nitride heat-treated to Rc 60 surface hardness, then pickled to remove the oxide layer before application of the heavy duty manganese phosphate Parkerized finish (MIL-DTL-16232G Type M) for maximum abrasion resistance. After nitride hardening, follower, floorplate, and retainer receive a dry-lube-impregnated powder coating to aid in smooth follower movement. Both finishes resist continuous salt fog exposure for 96 hours without developing corrosion, and also resist bore cleaners, solvents, oils, gasoline, diesel fuel, hydraulic fluid, insect repellents (including DEET), and other harsh chemicals likely to be encountered in a military environment.
