Magpul AICS Short Action 10-round 5.56 Magazines Now Shipping
Designed with many of the same qualities that make our PMAGS the most reliable and durable in the world, the PMAG 10 5.56 AC features GEN M3 technology, including a self-lubricating follower, a stainless-steel spring, and constant-curve internal geometry for smooth feeding. It also incorporates offset feed lip geometry that maximizes bolt face engagement, guaranteeing reliable feeding and solving the bolt face issue common to other AICS-pattern magazines for 5.56 based cartridges.
The Magpul AICS short action 10-round magazines will also feature a paint-pen dot matrix for external identification, a flared base plate for better ergonomics and a long-life stainless steel magazine spring. The freshly released magazines were made available to the public on October 19th and are currently in stock and shipping from the Magpul website at a price of $39.95
The magazine has an overall width of 0.97-inches on the top and 0.88-inches at its base. The new mag is stated by Magpul to be compatible with short action AICS-pattern bottom metal and 5.56×45 NATO/.223 Remington cartridges with an overall length (COAL) of up to 2.39 inches. For those running a 300 Blackout bolt action rig, Magpul has stated that it is not recommended that you use these magazines with that specific cartridge and also goes on to say that using these magazines with the Ruger American rifle is not recommended either (it might be possible to insert the magazines but Magpul says that there are function and reliability issues with the rifle and the magazines).
