TangoDown ARC Magazine

One of the most critical components in a semi-automatic firearm's operation is one that's often overlooked. The magazine, the chunk of metal and plastic responsible for the task of loading ammunition, is often chosen based on availability, lowest price or simply what comes up first in a search.

TangoDown's ARC magazines, available in a wide variety of capacities to serve even those states with statutory limitations, are manufactured from high-strength polymer in such a manner as to eliminate the floorplate. The company claims the polymer will outlast even metal magazines, drops free and promotes reliable feeding.

The magazine we received has been to the range on several occasions, with several hundred rounds fired through three different rifles. Loading the magazine is simple (as with most AR-15 mags) and no issues were observed when the magazine was used. It fed whatever we put into it, from softpoint reloads to steel-cased foreign 5.56 NATO ammo.

MSRP: $15.95 for 20-round black polymer magazine; differs for other capacities.
