Advanced Warfighter Magazines (AWM)


Applying our expertise in advanced polymers and lightweight component design, Lancer has created the L5 and L7 Advanced Warfighter Magazines (AWM).

We’ve combined hardened steel feed lips with a high strength polymer body to yield a hybrid design that maximizes strength, reliability and minimizes weight.  This hybrid design is strong enough to allow the use of unfilled polymers, enabling Lancer to produce a robust translucent magazine unlike any on the market.

Lancer Advanced Warfighter Magazines include:

  • L5AWM (5.56 x 45mm / .223 Rem)
  • L7AWM (7.62 x 51mm / .308 Win)
  • Magazine Accessories

Lancer set out to engineer a better 5.56 magazine; one with the reliability of steel, durability of polymer and weight of aluminum – the L5AWM.  The magazine design includes a one-piece, wrap-around steel feed lip assembly and an aggressive surface texture to create the ultimate hybrid magazine tough enough for military, LE and commercial use. The internal geometry of the Advanced Warfighter Magazine is a constant curvature utilizing a non-tilting follower for reliable feeding of 5.56X45mm NATO ammunition. The body and component materials are corrosion and chemical resistant, passing military chemical testing.
