Looking for tons of gun fun at a fraction of the normal cost? Plinker Tactical's got you covered. Shooting Times editor Joseph von Benedikt hit the range recently with the brand new Plinker Tactical 35-round magazine made especially for the Smith & Wesson M&P15-22, the price tag on a day at the range goes way down. Not only are they well-built and sturdy, but the mags feed flawlessly with a Slide Fire stock. Plinker Tactical also offers a loading assist tool, making reloading the mag a breeze and saving plenty of time.
In addition, Plinker Tactical offers an improved charging handle for the M&P15-22, which allows for ambidextrous charging, plus an extended handle that allows for easier use while shouldering the rifle.
Plinker Tactical 35-Round Magazine
Plinker Tactical's .22-caliber magazine is tough, durable, and with a 35-round capacity, offers more shooting than most magazines on the market.
Plinker Tactical Charging Handle
Machined of aluminum and sporting a robust spring under the polished-steel latch, this ambidextrous charging handle by Plinker Tactical is a useful upgrade when compared with the factory part.
Plinker Tactical Load-Assist
Installing 35 little .22 cartridges in a magazine takes a lot longer than shooting them. The $8 load-assist tool makes it considerably easier and saves wear on your thumbs.
