Each magazine is constructed from carbon steel, and is heat-treated for strength. Mec-Gar’s proprietary anti-friction coating covers the exterior, designed to make loading and unloading the magazine easier. The magazines have been tested to fit into competition boxes, and come with witness holes for remaining-round calculation. Each magazine retails for $65. For more information, check out mec-gar.com.
