Brownells’ .223 Rem./5.56x45 mm NATO-chambered AR-15 magazines have been so well-regarded that they have become standard-issue kit for the U.S. military. Now the company has expanded its line to include magazines for .30-cal. ARs as well. Designed to operate through DPMS LR-308- and SR-25-pattern rifles, the new magazines hold up to 20 rounds of .308 Win./7.62x51 mm NATO ammunition and are constructed of lightweight, durable anodized aluminum. It features a removable floorplate for easy cleaning and maintenance, a stainless steel spring to help facilitate reliable feeding, and a straight-body design compatible with most magazine pouches and carriers. Brownells’ new product also utilizes a dry-film-lubricated body to promote smooth insertion and an anti-corrosion finish to protect the magazine from moisture and rust. Price: $20.
