Troy Industries BattleMag 30 Round Polymer AR Rifle Magazine 5.56mm .223 Rem. SHOT Show 2012 DefenseReview.com DR 1 Troy BattleMag 30 Round 5.56mm NATO/.223 Rem. Lightweight Polymer Rifle Magazine for Tactical AR 15 Rifle/Carbine/SBR/Sub Carbines (Video!)DefenseReview (DR) first got to handle and photograph the Troy BattleMag 30-round 5.56mm NATO (5.56x45mm NATO)/.223 Rem. polymer magazine(s) at the Troy Industries booth at SHOT Show 2012. We then subsequently viewed and handled it at NDIA Special Operations Forces Industries Conference 2012 (SOFIC 2012). While we haven't yet gotten the chance to run the mags at high round count, including on full-auto (since we keep forgetting to bring them to our high-round count full-auto shoots), the magazines look and feel pretty good, and we look forward to running them at our next high-round count range session or tactical carbine class.

If the Troy BattleMag mags work as advertised (and as well as they look), they should be successful in the marketplace, especially since they're reasonably priced at $15 apiece, or $42 for a 3-pack, which is probably the best way to go. DR was lucky enough to pick up a 3-pack at SOFIC 2012 for T&E.

Defense Review's main concerns with polymer mags in general are how well they handle impacts (can they be easily crushed?), abrasions and general abuse, environmental conditions (heat, moisture, cold, etc.), and various chemical and biological agents.

In the meantime, we'll take you through some of the particulars of the Battle Mag mags. They are:
