Hexmag 10- and 15-Round Magazines

Hexmag 10- and 15-Round Magazines

Whether used for compliance with state regulations or simply to save money at the range, you might find it necessary to have magazines with capacities less than the 30-round-count standard on new AR-15-style rifles and carbines. Going with a smaller 20-. 15- or 10-round magazine is one option, but these magazines are often harder to retrieve from standard mag pouches.

Hexmag's 10- and 15-round magazines are designed with a large riser that limits capacity accordingly, yet fill the same space as a 30-round full-capacity mag. These would be a great choice for training purposes, where you might wish to practice reloads or magazine changes without burning up too much precious ammo. These magazines will fill a standard pouch so there's no tactile difference between these and 30-round magazines. 

Given Hexmag's color-coded followers, it would be easy to identify your reduced-capacity magazines to keep them with your training gear. Even if you're just looking to spare some ammo during plinking time without changing the feel of your carbine, there's a use for a lower-round count mags. Hexmag also points out that paracord, fishing line and other survival-oriented items can be stored around the riser in the reduced-capacity magazines.

MSRP: $14.99. Available in black, flat dark earth and foliage green.
