Hexmag’s New AR-10 (.308) Magazine

Hexmag, LLC (http://www.hexmag.com), maker of the most advanced and versatile AR-15 platform magazine on the market, is about to launch its new 20-round .308 caliber AR-10 magazine. Look for it to hit the market in early January 2017.
The Hexmag AR-10/.308 SR-25 Magazine is built to work reliably in the most demanding shooting environments.


Features include:

  • Firm seating with a self-lubricating anti-tilt follower
  • Patented HexID Color Identification System
  • Exclusive, robust PolyHex2  Advanced Composite Construction
Whether it’s a feathery 110-grain or a heavy 220-grain match bullet, military ball, soft-point, hollow-point, AP, API, incendiary, or tracer, Hexmag’s patented HexID Color Identification System can help shooters quickly identify what is in the magazine.
To keep things clean, Hexmag’s tool-less floorplate makes it possible to disassemble the magazine in a couple of seconds – a handy feature that also makes it easy to quickly empty the magazine without having to strip out rounds individually.
“This new AR-10 magazine fills a neglected market space,” says Hexmag marketing director Dave Smith. “We did a lot of development and engineering to make a lightweight magazine with superior strength and functionality that is affordable.”
The unique exterior of Hexmag’s AR-10 magazine provides exceptional grip in any conditions or environment, with or without gloves (add some optional extreme grip Hexmag Grip Tape and make it even better!). Combine these elements with firm seating, the dual leg, tilt-proof, multi-color coded HexID magazine followers and latch plate/identifiers, Hexmag’s exclusive PolyHex2   Advanced Composite construction and this affordable new magazine represents a huge technological leap forward in AR-10 magazines for the discriminating shooter.

MSRP: $18.99

Alien Gear Holsters Unleashes Game-Changing Cloak Mag Carriers

Alien Gear Holsters, the most comfortable concealed carry holsters on the planet, is proud to announce the release of the all-new Cloak Mag Carrier.

With its revolutionary design, this highly anticipated magazine holster is capable of being worn inside-the-waistband (IWB) or outside-the-waistband (OWB).

Chief Operating Officer Tim Treto explained how much effort was put forth during the design process.

“Even though we could have easily offered a leather back and Kydex shell mag carrier, Thomas Tedder [Owner] was unwilling to sell a product he would not use himself, and we decided to develop a mag carrier we could be proud of,” Treto said. “We put thousands of engineering hours into developing the best mag carrier possible.”

The Cloak Mag Carrier is available in both single or dual magazine configurations. Both options are capable of being worn IWB or OWB. The Dual Cloak Mag Carrier package also includes a paddle and a belt slide attachment for open carry.

Similar to the award-winning Cloak Tuck 3.0 IWB Holster, each Cloak Mag Carrier is built with Alien Gear Holsters’ comfortable neoprene backing. This material will provide all-day comfort to concealed carriers.

The Cloak Mag Carrier also includes adjustable magazine holster retention for a customizable fit. To achieve the perfect level of retention, simply tighten or loosen the exterior screws around your magazine. Additionally, every mag carrier is designed with 360 degree positioning. This feature provides carriers with the ability to angle their spare mag vertically, horizontally, or anywhere in between.

Treto feels confident about Alien Gear Holsters’ latest product.

“We literally left no feature on the table and can honestly say this is the best magazine carrier you can buy at any price,” Treto said. “I am very proud to bring another best-in-class holster to the world.”

The all-new mag carriers are backed by a Forever Warranty and a 30-Day Test Drive. Discover the most advanced mag carrier known to mag-kind at http://aliengearholsters.com/mag-carriers.html
