C Products Defense has released two new 7.62×39 magazines to the market. The new 28 and 20 round magazines are designed to fit in the standard STANAG magazine pouch without issue, unlike previous in-house and competitor designs that were so large they earned the “banana mag” reputation.
The new magazines feature tested coatings that ensure reliable feeding in the magazine and a tough exterior to take the beating that heavy-use put on metal magazines. Combined with caliber-specific geometries, spring, and follower, the magazines are a huge improvement in 7.62×39 AR reliability.
*Author’s personal note – I have used these magazines extensively in our own R&D. In my experience, they do work as advertised. In fact, we use them for all our internal firearms testing in the caliber.

C Products Defense Announces 2 New Magazines
Bradenton Florida – C Products Defense now offers a 30 RD, 28 RD and 20 RD in a 7.62×39 magazine. The new 20 Round magazine in 7.62×39 is an engineering marvel and fits nicely into the palm of your hand.
“This is ideal for many purposes, even bench rest shooting,” states C Products Defense Marketing Director Bill Rogers. “The 7.62×39 will give you a little more knock-down power yet it will take up a smaller amount of real estate on the profile of your gun.”
Both the 28 round and 20 round magazines are new to the lineup. With the advent of AR rifles chambered in 7.62×39 instead of the common .223/5.56, a demand was created by Law Enforcement and other types for a new magazine with a smaller footprint. For agencies faced with more serious threats that required a harder-hitting cartridge and wanting the benefits of the 7.62×39’s lower cost, that demand for this magazine has exploded.
A standard GI Pouch for 5.56/.223 will hold a 28 round magazine. A casing for 7.62×39 is larger in diameter, so to fit it into a magazine that would fit into the same GI pouch was thought to be impossible. C Products Defense took on the challenge and after 10 months of engineering and extensive testing, the new mags are available at retail.
As with all of C Products Defense magazines, this trio of 7.62×39 mags have gone through extensive testing both in-house and through independent means. OEM’s have conducted extensive testing of C Products Defense magazines, in fact, a major firearm manufacturer recently fired over 100,000 continuous rounds with zero failures, no other magazine even came close. The new trio of 7.62×39 magazines will give you that same confidence in our magazines and take up a smaller footprint.
Industry experts, familiar with the 7.62×39 round, are saying the C Products Defense 7.62×39 magazine is the only one that actually works every time.
“Because we have completely re engineered our magazines and because of the extensive testing we have conducted to back that up, it is without any reservation that I can tell any shooter on any AR platform that our magazines will not jam,” says C Products Defense President Adel Jamil. “We are the only magazine in the world guaranteed never to jam! In fact, a Latin major on our staff has nicknamed the magazine Nunquam Deficiat, which in Latin means Never Fail. That’s exactly how we engineer our magazines – to never fail! How can we make such a claim? There are two key differences that set our magazines apart from any other magazine.”
#1 Specially Engineered, Caliber-Specific Geometry – We threw out all of the conventional thinking pertaining to the manufacturing magazines and we have engineered all of our magazines from the ground up. Each magazine has their own caliber-specific geometry. In addition, our unique manufacturing process ensures that all of your CPD Mags are identical as engineered.
# 2. Advanced Proprietary Coatings – Our Advanced Proprietary Coatings, which attach at the molecular level, greatly decreases the coefficient of friction, providing greater performance and service life through an unparalleled lubricity. Ensuring that, even if you’re using the dirtiest ammunition on the planet – Our Magazine Will Not Jam!
