Mission First Tactical Extreme Duty AR-15 Magazine

Designed for resiliency and performance, MFT's Extreme Duty AR-15 Magazine helps keep your rifle running.

How the Extreme Duty AR-15 Magazine is built tough:

  • Made from long glass-fiber polymer for shock resistance.
  • Larger lower half to retain internal geometry's integrity.
  • Flared floorplate to protect from drops.
  • Oversized bolt catch.
  • Tool-free disassembly.
  • Compatibility with traditional mag pouches.

Weak points, no matter how robust a system’s design it will have them. In the case of the AR-15 and similar semi-automatic rifles, generally, the common tender spot is also one that needs to function flawlessly if the gun is going to do what it’s supposed to — go bang with every trigger pull. No matter how you cut it, magazines are a temperamental linchpin. But is it any wonder why?

Extreme Duty Mag

Of all the parts of a rifle, it is generally the most abused. Simple as its components are, they are the most exposed to the grit, grim and slop of the environment at large. Not to mention, dropping them like empty beer cans is standard operating procedure. Honestly, it’s a testament accessory manufacturers that magazine don’t go haywire more often.

Mission First Tactical gets this and was motivated to come up with a little something designed to all but eliminate magazine malfunctions hastened by rough use. The Extreme Duty AR-15 Magazine might appear little more than your run-of-the-mill polymer rig on the outside, but it’s designed with the extra backbone to weather rented-mule level abuse.

The magazine’s secret sauce, a reinforcement that kicks up its toughness by nearly a magnitude compared to its competition. A specially engineered long glass-fiber polymer provides up to three times the impact resistance and increases its overall strength by 50-percent compared to standard glass-filled nylon mags. In short, you can inadvertently bang these babies off cinder blocks, pavement, rocky surfaces, whathaveyou and not worry about them cracking or the spring getting damaged.

Furthermore, the lower half of the magazine is thicker, enhancing its rigidity and stabilizing its internal shape. Given this, the four-way, anti-tilt follower and stainless-steel mag spring always function flawlessly, with an unhindered path. Topping it all off, a flared floorplate adds more resiliency to the system protecting the magazine from drops at excessive heights.

Other notables on the Extreme Duty AR-15 Magazine include oversized bolt catch, tool-free disassembly and compatibility with traditional mag pouches. Optimized for use in Colt-spec AR lower receivers, it is also compatible with a number of other makes and models, including Heckler & Koch, FN America, FN SCAR16 and SA-180 bullpup. And it comes in with a very affordable price tag, with an MSRP of $12.99.
