Sometimes 30 rounds just isn’t enough to get the job done. Especially in shooting competitions where the evil stage designer ensures that there’s just barely enough targets to force a magazine change mid-string. For those times, the typical response has been to use a magazine extension like those available from Taran Tactical or just a Surefire high capacity box magazine. Daniel Defense thinks that there’s enough of a market out there for a standard AR-15 magazine that holds 32 rounds — two more than the traditional 30 round standard capacity magazines. Why? Not sure, but here’s a press release.
Daniel Defense, engineer and manufacturer of the world’s finest firearms and accessories, is proud to announce the release of its latest accessory—the all-new DD Magazine. This lightweight but durable magazine for M4, M16, and all AR-15-variant 5.56mm rifles holds 32 rounds of 5.56x45mm NATO or 300BLK and represents Daniel Defense’s first foray into the world of magazines.
“ We’re excited about the new DD Magazine as it launches Daniel Defense into a new product segment of the firearms industry,” said Bill Robinson, Vice President of Commercial Sales. “ We recognize there are several great brands in this segment, so we needed to design a magazine that offered the consumer unique features. I believe the consumers will appreciate the enhancements to functionality and durability the DD Magazine offers.”
This new patent-pending magazine is constructed of a carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer and weighs only 4.6 ounces (unloaded). It features an improved feed-lip design and an enhanced anti-tilt follower that provide smooth, reliable feeding. A snag-free design and textured surfaces make gripping, inserting, and removing the magazine ergonomic, intuitive, and nearly effortless, while an impact-absorbing baseplate adds to its overall durability. Despite all of these sophisticated features, there’s nothing complicated about the DD Magazine—simple disassembly/reassembly makes cleaning and maintaining it quick and easy work.
The affordable new DD Magazine has an MSRP of $20 and is currently available directly from Daniel Defense at www.danieldefense.com or from an authorized DD dealer. The following US States have restrictions on high capacity magazines: California, Colorado, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey and Washington D.C. This product cannot be shipped to these states or any other restricted state or local municipality.
