One of the new items that everyone seems to be talking about right now is the new SureFire High-Capacity Magazines. They look very similar to the standard USGI metal mags but can be purchased in either 60 or 100 round capacity.
Obviously these are a lot bigger than the standard 20 or 30 round mags but that’s to be expected. Due to the size and weight of the high-capacity mag I’m sure there will be some situations where it just wouldn’t be usable but there is definitely a market for these. I think these would be great for security details that are riding in vehicles, etc. Just like the Beta Mag, as funny as it looks (reminds me of a curled up hadlebar mustache), sells very well.
They aren’t cheap though. The 60rd mag goes for $129 and the 100rd mag goes for $179. Let’s see….that’s 10-12 PMAGS.
These are not available until at least March for a few SureFire retailers and April online at SureFire’s website. Until then you can get more information from SureFire.
