Q: How many magazines does an AR owner need?

A: More.

The perfect stocking-stuffer. Just don’t let Nina Burleigh know who you’re buying for, OK?

Horsham, Pa. (November 2018) – Mission First Tactical, LLC (MFT™), a leader in USA-made rifle/carbine accessories, is proud to introduce the latest addition to the MFT magazine line, the Extreme Duty 5.56 Polymer Magazine (EXDPM556). Designed for the AR15/M4 platform but allowing for use with wide range of non-AR15/M4 platforms.

Manufactured using the newest material technology and processes, the magazines with their next generation long glass fiber polymer construction offer the trifecta of perfection in structural performance; strength, durability and stiffness. The stiffness allows the magazine to maintain its integrity without additional weight with an additional benefit of top performance even at elevated temperatures. The longer length reinforcing fibers produce increased strength and prevents deformation and polymer fatigue. Additionally, the Extreme Duty 5.56 mags offer increased durability through a more efficient energy transfer between the polymer and the longer fiber filaments during an impact. A long-life USGI-Spec stainless steel spring is corrosion resistant. The four-way, anti-tilt, self-lubricating follower keeps the rounds aligned and makes mag feeding consistent and reliable, while virtually eliminating jams.

Confidence in handling the new Extreme Duty 5.56 mags is a piece of cake, even during weather or duress. The front and rear of the gripping surface is ribbed for a positive grip, even with gloves. An oversized bolt-catch provides enhanced reliability of the bolt-catch operation. The flared floor plate allows for an easier grip in handling and extraction and one-hand reloads. Wrapping up the multiple benefits to the newest addition to the MFT magazine line is a paint dox matrix to allow for easy marking and identification of magazines and the tool-less disassembly with the double floor plate safety release tabs.

Mission First Tactical Extreme Duty 5.56 Polymer magazines are built for hard shooting and extreme treatment and shooting conditions and come with a Lifetime Warranty.

    why bother seeing if something new works if the old ones never fail?

    1. avatar Cruzo1981 says:

      Exactly…like all these new 5.56 rifles. My first AR still works just fine and as long as it’s in 5.56 it performs the same as well, soooooooooo…

    2. avatar L says:

      To be fair, the exact same was said about magpul mags back when aluminum mags were the norm. Look where we are now.

      1. avatar Nanashi says:

        Searching around the original gen 1 pmag was released Jan. 11, 2007 (should be reliable as the source is Magpul’s official Facebook page). Checking my history the standard aluminum mags of the time were green follower, which were definitely not “never fail”, and gen 1 pmags had an anti-tilt follower.

  2. It has an IP[X]7 rating! “7” meaning that it can be submerged in 10 feet of water for ~30 minutes without “Lasting” damaging effects. And the [X] meaning “Insufficient” data provided for an accurate assessment for Minimum/Maximum Temperature rating…

    1. avatar L says:

      So I can’t store it in my water-filled gun safe?

      1. You normally put you’re Gun Safe at the Bottom of a 10 foot depth Swimming Pool or Well…

        1. avatar L says:

          Mine is 8 ft deep so either you or I are doing it wrong, and it’s worked fine for me so that just leaves one option…

        2. Saturating you’re ammunition with 100% Humidity for Long Periods of Time, doesn’t do the Propellant in your ammo any good either….

  3. avatar pwrserge says:

    Ok… in what way is it better than a PMAG?

    1. avatar doesky2 says:

      Well one way would be if they had an introductory pricing of 5$ for a few months with a maximum of 10 per address.

      That’s one way to enourage me to try them.

      Palmetto regularly has Gen2 Pmags for <= 7$ with free ship.

  4. avatar RA-15 says:

    I do love my pmag’s , I think this magazine is worth looking at , testing it at $ 12 – if it works as well as it looks , why not. The base , bottom half looks to be good for gripping. Just my humble opinion.

    1. avatar pwrserge says:

      Good for gripping, shitty for mag pouches. There’s a reason why I use my Lancers far more than my PMags.

      1. avatar L says:

        What the heck do you use mag pouches for?

        1. avatar pwrserge says:

          Same thing I use most of my rifles for. Tactical shooting competitions. aka CQB training

      2. avatar DapperGunsmith says:

        Agreed, same reason (among others) I prefer Lancers.

      3. avatar Red in CO says:

        Ranger Plates bud, I swear by those things and won’t have a PMag without em. (Plus it makes ID of my mags a lot easier; plenty of folks run PMags but far fewer run Ranger Plates). If you regularly practice reloading from a plate carrier/chest rig those are a must have

        1. avatar pwrserge says:

          The problem is the thickness of the mag. I can stack three lancers in the same pouch as two PMAGs.

  5. avatar former water walker says:

    As a soon to be AR owner this is slightly confusing to my old brain. What’s wrong with easily available Pmags? I doubt I can walk in my local Cabelas or gunshop and find these…

    1. avatar J Gibbons says:

      Nothing wrong with Pmags. Nothing wrong with another company entering the market. Capitalism at its finest. If these are any good, they’ll sell. The price may fluctuate a bit as it does for all new products hitting the market. If no one wants them, they won’t be around for long.

    2. avatar neiowa says:

      PMAGs are great. Normal pricing on them at Cabelas is high.

  6. avatar Son Of Alan says:

    Turner’s Outdoorsman carries them in California in a blocked 10 round format, I don’t buy them because they seem to be permanently blocked. I have been buying Hexmags 10/30 instead because the blocking format is defeatable by having 30 round springs available. I also get 10 round Pmags.

  7. avatar MichaelinPA says:

    These look a lot like the sig mags that sig just did a fire sale on in august. I think CAA made those mags.
