Brownells – AR-15 20 Round Waffle Steel Magazine

Tuesday, February 19th, 2019

There are a lot of options if you’re in the market for a retro AR-15 clone, like Brownells’ Retro line, but it’s almost impossible to source the original-style 20 round waffle stamped steel magazines. Brownells wanted to offer the whole experience, so they made their own.

Externally, these look like the original magazines thanks to magazine body & floorplate made exclusively for Brownells by Nodak Spud, but the internals (follower and spring) are from Brownells USGI 20rd aluminum magazines, making them much more reliable.
