Okay Industries Introduces Desert Tan Metal Magazines

Okay Industries, known for making OK products (I’m sorry, I couldn’t resist…), has announced the release of their latest offering, their SureFeed AR-15 magazines in Desert Tan. The new color expands the SureFeed line of magazines, which were and are still standard-issue for many Government forces. The SureFeed line is Okay’s civilian offerings which “…are manufactured to the same exacting standards as all Okay Industries magazines which meet or exceed U.S. Military Specifications.

In all seriousness, Okay Industries magazines were and are sought after by those forced to use metal magazines. When I was in the service, there were highly prized over the Colt and other magazines (careful, I’m showing my age here).

The new magazines are 100% made in the United States. The bodies and floor plates are aluminum, heat-treated, hard coat anodized and then subjected to coloration which includes nano-PTFE (i.e. Teflon) additives and boron which increases lubricity and thus reliability. The magazines feature the same anti-tilt followers and stainless steel springs as proven over the decades.

Each individual magazine is subjected to a battery of tests prior to acceptance and leaving the factory including weld integrity verification, feed lips tolerances, and material quality inspections. All magazines are finally tested for fit and function.

The new desert tan SureFeed magazines are priced at $18.95 to $19.95.

  • These are the new Enhanced Performance Magazines adopted by the US Army, I bet.

      A few more years and our service rifle will finally be the color of dirt!
      Concerning the example carbine, sub in FDE stock, PG and optic and we’re there!

      They are not.

      These are basic GI mags with Magpul followers in a tan coating.

    C-Products makes a very fine 400 series stainless steel mag that i prefer to my aluminum ones. It weighs a hair more than an aluminum mag but seems to be built quite a bit tougher. You can even pick them up for around $12. Its my fav all metal mag when i’m not using P-mags or Lancers. The GI pattern mags seem nicer to insert on a closed bolt than my p-mags.

      I’ve found Cproducts mags for under $9 each, well below magpul.
