Mec-Gar USA announced the introduction of its latest eight-round 1911 magazine, designed to offer support to Second Amendment organizations.

"We have always been strong supporters of the right of people to own and possess firearms," said David Larson, Mec-Gar USA national sales manager. "We are offering this magazine because we see the 1911 as America's gun and are donating a portion of the proceeds to ensure Second Amendment rights are protected."

The magazine is designed for .45 ACP-chambered guns only and features the full text of the Second Amendment engraved on the body of the magazine. The magazine is constructed using carbon steel and features heat treatment for added strength, as well as a blued finish to prevent corrosion.

The magazine spring is made using Type D music wire, and the magazine's construction is finished of with a polymer baseplate that is designed to withstand high-impact treatment. The baseplate is also easily removable for cleaning.

Mec-Gar is donating 10 percent of the profits from the sale of each of these Second Amendment 1911 pistol magazines to organizations that fight for the right to bear arms. The suggested retail price on the new magazines is $29.20.
