Hexmag is now offering reduced capacity full-sized AR magazines.
Why would anyone want a 30-round magazine that only holds 10 or 15 rounds?
Well, you wouldn’t if you live in a free state, but for those living in California, New York, New Jersey, among others anti-gun cesspools that ban standard capacity magazines capable of holding 30 rounds, there is a real appeal to Hexmag’s offering.
As Hexmag president George Brown stated, “In certain states/areas the possession of 20- and 30-round magazines for the AR-15 is now illegal. Hexmag has come out with magazines in full exterior size (best for practice and training) that comply with reduced capacity laws/regulations to protect the user should they be questioned by their state’s officials.”
In other words, if you’re a competitive shooter living in New York who competes around the country and you want to practice reloading your AR at home, it would help to have a magazine that mirrors the 30-round magazine you’ll be using in competition in other parts of the U.S. If you actually tried to bring a 30-round magazine into New York, well, you’d run afoul of the draconian SAFE Act and find yourself at the mercy of anti-gun Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Not good.
Another advantage is storage. These magazines have a little compartment that can hold items like batteries, 550 cord, small survival equipment, gun maintenance items. Pretty neat.
The magazines are fitted with reduced-capacity risers and shortened stainless steel feed springs they are limited to 10- or 15-round capacity and will reliably feed .223/5.56 x45, .300AAC Blackout, .458 SOCOM and .50 Beowulf rounds.
