First Look: Mission First Tactical Extreme Duty Polymer Magazine

posted on September 24, 2021

Mission First Tactical, LLC (MFT) is known for their American-made rifle and carbine accessories. Now they are introducing the MFT Extreme Duty Polymer Magazine for the 7.62 NATO round, available in a 10-round option. Designed from the ground up for the AR-10A/SR25/M1110 pattern rifles, the MFT Extreme Duty Polymer Mag has been optimized for use with SAAMI-spec 7.62 NATO and .308 Win. ammunition.

Mission First Tactical is dedicating their new 7.62x51 magazines to the memory of Frank DeSomma from Patriot Ordnance Factory. It was a privilege to work with him through the development process of this product, and he will be greatly missed.

Manufactured using the newest material technology and processes, the Extreme Duty Polymer Magazines utilizes new material technology and manufacturing processes for enhanced strength, durability, and reliability. The next-generation, long glass-fiber polymer construction helps with structural performance, strength, durability, and reliability to meet or exceed  military performance specifications. The long-life USGI-Spec stainless steel spring inside is corrosion resistant, and the four-way, anti-tilt, self-lubricating follower keeps the rounds aligned and makes mag feeding consistent and reliable.

The front and rear  gripping surfaces of the Extreme Duty Polymer Mag 7.62 NATO magazine are ribbed for a positive grip that works even while wearing gloves. The oversized bolt-catch provides enhanced reliability, and the flared floor plate allows for an easier grip in handling and extraction and one-hand reloads. In addition to this, the exterior of the magazine is a paint dox matrix that allows for easy marking and identification of magazines and the tool-less disassembly with the double floor plate safety release tabs.

The Extreme Duty Polymer Mag 7.62 NATO is available in Black and Scorched Dark Earth with an MSRP of $22.99. For more information on this product or other gear from Mission First Tactical, please visit
