Hexmag reduced capacity AR platform magazines. These new Hexmag magazines limit the number of rounds for reduced capacity state laws to 10- and 15-rounds. However, they come in a FULL SIZE configuration so the user can practice as if it were a 30-round magazine. Now an AR owner can legally practice with a full size magazine in a reduced capacity state or area. MSRP $14.99

Background:

Why make a reduced capacity full size magazine–and is it legal?*

“In certain states/areas the possession of 20- and 30-round magazines for the AR-15 is now illegal. Hexmag has come out with magazines in full exterior size (best for practice and training) that comply with reduced capacity laws/regulations to protect the user should they be questioned by their state’s officials.”George Brown, Hexmag President

Fitted with reduced-capacity risers and shortened stainless steel feed springs they are limited to 10- or 15-round capacity and will reliably feed .223/5.56 x45, .300AAC Blackout, .458 SOCOM and .50 Beowulf rounds.

Both magazines can be charged from 10-round stripper clips. Now a person with an AR can go to a range to practice firing, positions, loading and more using full size magazines and if legally challenged will test no more than 10- or15-rounds depending on the magazine model and the legal restriction in the area of use. The design is compatible with most 30-round magazine pouches and looks natural as an extension of the AR platform.

These reduced capacity magazines are a patented design made for easy tool free baseplate removal for cleaning like the standard 30-round magazine. They afford extra space inside the magazine (especially the 10-round) which can hold items like optics batteries, 550 cord, gun maintenance items, etc.

Made from PolyHex2, a proprietary fiber-reinforced polymer and are available in four colors: Black, olive drab, grey and flat dark earth (FDE). They feature Hexmag’s Anti-Tilt colored follower and optional multi-colored HexID followers and latch plate. The colored magazine latch plate identifiers make it easy for a gun owner to quickly identify 10-, 15- and 30-round magazines and/or the ammunition contained. Couple this with their textured exterior and unique optional super grip tape and you get the most advanced, reliable and practical reduced capacity AR magazine around.

MSRP: $14.99
