Lancer Systems LP's Lancer L5 Advanced Warfighter Magazine (L5AWM) for semi-automatic rifles that accept STANAG 4179 magazines is a hybrid magazine that combines the best features of polymer and steel magazine designs. Unique to the L5AWM is the one piece wrap-around steel feed lip assembly that is permanently attached to an impact resistant polymer body. The steel feed lip assembly is made from a single piece of precision formed steel that is hardened and PTFE coated for corrosion resistance. The hardened steel feed lip assembly won’t bend, break or deform due to rough handling or long term storage.
The magazine body is available in either a tinted translucent or an opaque polymer. All the polymers used are impact resistant through a wide range of temperatures as well as chemical and corrosion resistant. The internal geometry of the L5AWM is a constant curve that has been maximized to feed the 5.56X45mm NATO round and has a non-tilting follower for trouble-free feeding. An aggressive surface texture has been applied to the outside of the body to improve gripping and retrieval from magazine pouches.
This combination of steel and polymer result in a lightweight, robust magazine tough enough for professional use.
The L5AWM is compatible with modern weapon systems; M4/M16/AR, HK416, SCAR-L / Mk16, and the ARX160 to name a few. They will be available in 20-and 30-round capacity with a tinted translucent or opaque body in Black, Flat Dark Earth, Olive Drab and Foliage Green color. All of the L5AWM components are made in the USA.
