Of all the stupid gun laws that have ever been written, including the one in Chicago not allowing a legal gun owner to take his weapon onto his porch, the laws restricting magazine capacity to 10 rounds are the most absurd. Where is the data proving that limiting the number of bullets in a handgun or modern home defense sporting assault rifle (used in less gun crimes than any other type of firearm) protects the public? Does someone somewhere really believe that they’re saving lives by forcing a [theoretical] mass killer to reload?
Not that the [theoretical] killer could find a high capacity magazine elsewhere like, say, the next state over. Noooo. Anyway, you gotta feel sorry for modern home defense sporting rifles who have to make do with crappy ten-round mags, a system which will disappear entirely if California, Massachusetts et al ever wake up and smelled the gunpowder.
Into the breach steps Arsenal (through their buddies at K-Var), with their new 10-round 100 percent US made 7.62×39 magazine. They’re the first US-made magazine with a steel lug insert, which creates a precision fit and ensures longevity (they won’t wear do to rubbing against the mag catch).
Arsenal assures us that “These magazines are made using the original Kalashnikov design. They are not reverse engineered and are made to the original specs.” These are by far the highest quality, low profile magazines on the market today. These magazines pass the Russian Mil-Spec drop tests. Which, as you can see, is about as scientific as you’d expect. But effective.
$29 a pop, plus S&H. Meanwhile, where’s the NRA on rolling back this ridiculous regulation?
