All of The Benefits, While maintaining compliance
Enjoy the benefits of a full-size mag with a capacity that’s just right for our friends in less fortunate states.
Everyone know’s the benefits of Lancer’s hybrid L5AWM® magazine design. (HINT: They’re listed down below if you need a refresher.) Our new Limited series of magazines feature all of these same benefits, but with permanently installed capacity limiters which make them compliant in all fifty states. Even if you’re not able to enjoy a full serving of freedom (and then go back for seconds), you can at least savor the taste and imagine what it would be like.
NOTE: In order to maintain compliance with various state and local capacity regulations, the internal limiting device was carefully designed to not allow more than ten (15) rounds to be inserted into the magazine. In order to ensure this for legal purposes, we had to reduce the amount of stack travel available when fully loaded to ten rounds. As a result, it may be difficult to insert a fully loaded magazine onto a closed bolt on some weapon platforms. Loading on an open bolt and/or loading the magazine to fourteen (14) rounds will alleviate this issue. We don’t like it anymore than you do, but it’s how we keep compliance.
Lancer set out to design a better 5.56 magazine; one with the reliability of steel and the durability and weight of polymer. The L5 Advanced Warfighter Magazine (AWM®) is that magazine.
The L5AWM’s exclusive hybrid design includes a hardened steel feed lip assembly molded into a proprietary polymer body with aggressive surface texturing to create the ultimate rifle magazine tough enough for military, law enforcement, and competition applications.
