The MDT AICS-pattern metal magazines are manufactured from high strength steel and nitride-finished for ultimate durability. The short action magazines are offered for .308 Win and 6.5 Creedmoor family cartridges.
These magazines are designed with a unique Double Stack to Single Feed (DSSF) transition design for reduced overall height compared to the industry standard. It has a 12 round capacity (13 in some caliber) while maintaining a similar height to the 10 rounds mag.
This is a must-have for all shooters running AICS system.
Binder Plate Details:
The magazines with front binder plates are compatible with all rifles equipped with AICS-pattern bottom metal or chassis systems. The binder plate holds the cartridges back from the front of the magazines and guides them past the bottom of the feed ramp. The maximum cartridge overall length (COAL) that will fit in this magazine is 2.870”.
The magazines without front binder plates allow a maximum cartridge overall length of 2.960”. These are compatible with all AICS-pattern bottom metal and chassis systems, but most common actions such as Remington 700 and Savage 10/11 will require modifications to the receiver (i.e. notching out the bottom of the feed ramp) to prevent the bullet tips from catching on the bottom of the feed ramp (see photo below). DO NOT order these magazines without a full understanding of this.
