I think it’s safe to say that synthetic AR mags have eclipsed metal ones when it comes to reliability and durability. The latest one on the market that I saw at SHOT Show is from Hexmag. They’re available in black, FDE, OD green or dark gray to match any color scheme and claim to be some of the lightest and most durable on the market today.
Hexmag magazines feature the signature patented hexagonal pattern for superior grip and evolutionary design with a tool-less take down feature for easy cleaning, plus, Hexmag’s high visibility, anti-tilt follower is designed to help stop residue particles from entering back into your rifle. Coupled with a heat-treated stainless steel spring for long term loaded storage and corrosion resistance, Hexmag assures your AR-15 feeds reliably and offers a lifetime warranty.
