DefenseReview (DR) always enjoys seeing new high-quality 4179 STANAG 30-round (standard capacity) and 40+-round (high-capacity) AR mags being developed and introduced at shows, so we were happy to get to see a prototype Mission First Tactical MFT SCPM556 Standard-Capacity Polymer Mag at SHOT Show 2014. The MFT SCPM556 is a polymer 30-round 5.56mm NATO (5.56x45mm NATO)/.223 Rem./300 AAC Blackout (300BLK) AR-15 magazine with a stipple-texurized (i.e., stippling) outer surface and ribs/ribbing. On the production-model MFT mag, the ribs will be front ribs.
According to MFT rep David Edelman, the MFT SCPM556 Standard-Capacity Polymer Magazine will also sport a 4-way self-lubricating silicone anti-tilt follower with three (3) points of contact, a stainless steel magazine spring/action spring, a drainage plug and safety stop (for AD’s) on the magazine’s base plate/floor plate.
MSRP on a single MFT SCPM556 30-round polymer mag is $14.95 USD, or you can buy a 3-Pack of SCPM556 30-round polymer mags for $44.95 USD.
Just like with the MFT TORCH Backup Light/Laser Mount Series weapon lights/helmet lights featured in our previous article, the demo gun shown in the accompanying photos and video is an Arsenal Democracy Reaper 33 .300 8.5″ (MERC) tactical AR SBR (Short Barreled Rifle)/sub-carbine that’s chambered in 300 AAC Blackout (300BLK). The gun features a nice looking billet upper and lower receiver, a nice MIL-STD-1913 “Picatinny” rail system, and a slick Kryptek Typhon black combat camouflage gun coating/finish. The gun’s also outfitted with a MFT TORCH Backup Light and MFT Backup Polymer Flip-Up Front Sight (BUPSWF)/BUIS. Cool little gun.
DR would very much like to get our hands on a few MFT SCPM556 30-Round Standard Capacity Mag 3-packs for our guys to run at the range as soon as possible to see how well they actually run.
