DuraMag is known for creating reliable magazines for the AR platform in calibers like 7.62x39 mm and .450 Bushmaster, and now they are rolling out a new magazine for AR-pattern guns that is specifically tailored for the 6.5 Grendel round. 

The 6.5 Grendel is beloved by shooters because it has more energy on target at longer ranges yet still works with the compact, lightweight and wildly popular AR platform. These features make a favorite for AR shooters who like to push the limits of the AR-15, and the new DuraMag magazine provides them a rugged and reliable way to feed their firearms.  

The DuraMag 20-round magazine lets you load your magazine to the brim from one ammo box and not have any rounds leftover. Twenty rounds in a box of ammo, 20 rounds in your magazine. This saves you from sorting out which magazine is partially loaded or accidentally tossing out a partially full box of ammo into the trash. DuraMag still offers 5-, 10-, and 26-round options for hunters and shooters, but a 20-round magazine just made too much sense to them, so why not have one in the lineup?

DuraMag 6.5 Grendel Magazine Features

  • 410 Stainless Steel magazine body for the highest levels of durability
  • EverFlex anti-fatigue spring technology for longer life and improved reliability
  • LipLock technology keeps rounds secured and in proper alignment
  • Advanced Geometry Follower remains level for consistent feeding
  • T-360 total coating technology covers the entire magazine, inside and out
  • Post & Hole construction adds strength, durability through the use of robotically accurate precision welds

The DuraMag 6.5 Grendel magazine is available in 5-, 10-, 20- and 26-round versions, and MSRP varies by capacity. For more information one this product and other items from DuraMag, please visit dura-mag.com.
