The AICS pattern magazine has become the default magazine for most precision rifles. Originally created by renowned rifle manufacturer Accuracy International, AICS pattern magazines have since been manufactured by a variety of manufacturers, including precision rifle specialists Modular Driven Technologies, or MDT as they are known.  

Now MDT is announcing a new, innovative update to the AICS magazine the Poly/Metal AICS pattern short action magazine, sized for .308/7.62 mm. 

The MDT Poly/Metal magazine is constructed with a polymer body fitted to a metal feedlip assembly. This arrangement combines the warmth and light-weight feel of a polymer magazine with the reliability and adjustability of a metal magazine. 

It takes the best features of the tried and true AICS pattern magazine and the best features of the rugged polymer magazine construction. The combined polymer and steel make for a unique, lightweight, slick-feeding magazine. The body is made from high-strength polymer and features a clear window in the sides of the body to easily view loaded rounds. The Poly/Metal design features steel feed lips that are mated to the polymer body to ensure smooth, reliable feeding in your rifle.

The Poly/Metal mags come in black and flat dark earth with a 10-round capacity. Internal allowable COAL is 2.870 inches and are available in .308 sizing only.  

MSRP on the MDT Poly/Metal Magazine is $49.95, and more information is available at mdttac.com.

Such new people included the late Chuck Karwan, my fellow Vietnam vet and as good a friend as I could possibly want.
