Hexmag AR15 Magazine Gets a New, Functional Update
Eve Flanigan 02.18.21
The Hexmag has become a popular choice in the ever-expanding category of polymer AR magazines. Its distinctive honeycomb molding gives it a distinct look and feel that can be advantageous for quick identification among mixed magazines. Even such a unique mag is sometimes ripe for an upgrade, though, and Hexmag manufacturer, Sentry, has just announced a big one. The Hexmag is now available in a carbon fiber blend. Here’s what Sentry has to say about their innovative mag:
“After the acquisition of the Hexmag brand in 2017 SENTRY Products Group , based in Virginia Beach, set out to refine and expand their magazine and on gun accessory line. The most recent advancement is SENTRY’s Carbon Fiber AR-15 magazine, made from a proprietary carbon fiber composite blended with our Polyhex2 polymer, offering exceptional durability and consistent performance. While Hexmag’s polymer magazines are known for exceptional reliability and resiliency, the introduction of Carbon Fiber significantly increases the overall strength and rigidity which further enhances performance. An added benefit to the end-user is that Carbon Fiber reduces the total weight by 20 percent over the standard magazine.
As with all Hexmag products the new Carbon Fiber AR-15 Mag features the patented Hexture pattern for confident and positive grip, no matter the environmental conditions. With the industry’s first tool-less takedown design, the magazines can be easily cleaned and maintained. A heat-treated stainless-steel spring eliminates corrosion and resists fatigue even while loaded for long periods of time. Customization can be done through Hexmag’s True-Riser system to create State compliant 10, 15, and 30-round configurations; and with the SENTRY HexID color identification system, the user can quickly identify caliber and ammo type through the coded safety system featuring high visibility followers and latch plate.“
With ammunition in unprecedented short supply, it’s easy to imagine magazines could follow, as has happened in the past. Thus, its also easy to justify buying the new-fangled Hexmag sooner rather than later. It’s available in black with an MSRP of $21.99 through Midway, RSR, and the SENTRY website http://www.sentrytactical.com.
