Californians, New Yorkers, Canadians, and all others affected by Communism, lend me your ears! Introducing the AR-15 Cross Mag 10/10 Coupling Magazine from Cross Industries - an extremely innovative take on the ten round magazine limit. Using a specially designed bottom plate, two of their ten round magazines can be easily coupled butt to butt, giving you two 10 round mags in the same size package as a standard 30 round magazine. This effectively doubles the number of bullets per magazine, giving you a more respectable 20 rounds rather than a measly 10. Granted, the magazines are attached together, necessitating a reload after shooting 10 rounds from one; however, the design is extremely sturdy and a lot less messy than taping two magazines together.
The baseplates can also be removed and flipped 180 degrees, meaning you can connect two magazines by up to four different configurations, based on preference. The coupling requires no tools - you simply twist two baseplates together, giving a satisfying click when they are locked into place. They require a fair bit of force to separate, meaning they won’t detach when you’re running and gunning. They are made of an extremely durable polymer, and have withstood being dropped, and tolerated a realistic amount of abuse during testing. We have had zero misfeeds or other malfunctions during our testing, and have also found the magazine to seat securely in the magwell, in addition to it sliding in and out with ease. If we had to be nit-picky and find something to complain about, we’d say the area where the two mags connect is a bit wider than the rest of the magazine. Because it is in the middle of the completed magazine, it can get hung up on your mag pouch if you do not pull it out properly. Having said that, it is beveled to the point that this is rarely a problem.
The AR-15 Cross Mag 10/10 Coupling Magazine is a must have for anyone living in an area afflicted with a 10 round magazine limit. Be sure to find them on Instagram @crossindustries, and you can find their product on their website as well as many of the big gun websites, such as Brownell’s here. Get yourself a couple today - you won’t regret it!
