Troy Industries was showing the BattleMag at the 2011 SHOT Show. They are now shipping. The BattleMag is another entry into the polymer AR-15 magazine market. It does have a few features that set it apart from the established players like Magpul’s PMAG and TangoDown’s ARC magazine.
The BattleMag has some very well thought out texturing that is designed to improve grip when stripping the BattleMag from a pouch or the magazine well. It also features a removable pull tab that aids in removing the magazine from pouches and serves as a shock absorber when the magazine is dropped. The spine of the BattleMag is shaped to prevent the magazine from being over-inserted into the magazine well. It is rare, but I have seen magazines ride over the magazine catch during a reload. The BattleMags should, theoretically, prevent that from happening.
The street price on these should be competitive since the MSRP is only $15 but even $1 is too much if a magazine doesn’t work every time. Only time and lots of rounds down range will tell the true story of this magazine.
