Troy Industries announces shipment of its CBIR (Chemical, Biological and Impact Resistant) polymer Battlemags to dealers and distributors. These magazines have been involved in a lengthy research and development phase, in which time they have come under severe punishment and testing. They have survived not only loading and feeding evaluations, but also destructive product testing, such as being shot with shotguns and high-powered rifles, crushed by vehicles and frozen and baked in extreme temperature ranges. All magazines functioned flawlessly.
The CBIR Battlemag is currently offered in a 30-round 5.56mm/.223 version. It is available in black, flat dark earth, OD green and coyote tan. Every magazine includes a flush shock-absorbing bottom floorplate. Battlemags work with all M4, M16, AR-15, HK416 and FN SCAR rifles and carbines. Additional features include proprietary engineered resin, reinforced feed lips, anti-tilt follower and an aggressive fish-scale gripping pattern. MSRP: $15. 866-788-6412, www.troyind.com.
