If I was to summarize the issues that I’ve seen competitors have (apart from missing their target) at the Precisioin Rifle Series matches and training sessions that I have attended, it boils down to various problems with magazines and feeding ammunition into the chamber.
Most of these issues arise when shooters are going from one magazine to the next, so I therefore wanted to highlight this new product from Switchview, which may actually help some of my fellow competitors.
I reached out to Switchview and this is the product description they provided:
The Switchview USA AICS P-mag Extensions increase the capacity of your magazines by four rounds. If you REALLY cram them in there, you can get five, but they’re designed to be a +4.
They also do a great job of protecting the bottom of your mags when they get dropped, and the added weight helps the empty magazine fall out easily.
Just like our Switchview levers, the AICS P-mag Extensions are cut out of 6160 T1 aluminum and hard anodized flat black (more colors coming soon).
Another really cool feature on our magazine extensions is we’ve licensed the tool-less take down system from TTI. This makes them super easy to disassemble for cleaning!
They are normally priced at $49.95, but it seems Switchview is running them at $42.95 at the moment.
There are a few similar products, but I think most of them are +2 only, not +4.
I know that magazine extensions aren’t rocket science but sometimes it doesn’t take a lot to solve a problem. At the end of the day, we all want a few more rounds (or gallons) than the original dispenser was designed for, don’t we?
Let us know in the comments below what you think of the SwitchView extension!
