“In the current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, a soldier’s ability to respond to an attack with overwhelming force is critical. Ambushes are commonplace and the outcome of the ambush is often determined in the first 30 seconds.

Firepower and the ability to stay in the fight are key. SureFire’s High Capacity Magazines are designed to provide the war fighter with 60 or 100 rounds of ammunition in a single magazine, thereby decreasing the number of reloads a soldier must perform and increasing the number of rounds available to a soldier to engage threat targets.” Surefire.com.

Q. Do I have to download my magazine to seat it in the weapon with the bolt closed?
A. No. SureFire HCMs will fit into the host weapon with the bolt closed when loaded with the maximum round count. The design of the magazine takes into account the allowable tolerances of cartridges manufactured to NATO and SAAMI specifications.

Q. Will my 60 round magazine fit into my nylon gear for 30 round magazines?
A. The SureFire MAG5-60 will fit into most nylon pouches with Velcro cover flaps intended for two 30 round magazines. Double magazine pouches with stitched partitions may require alteration.

Q. Will SureFire be offering nylon pouches for these magazines?
A. Yes. Product specifics and pricing is still to be determined.

Q. Can SureFire HCM’s be disassembled for cleaning?
A. Yes, the SureFire HCMs can be disassembled for periodic cleaning or as required. A punch, the tip of a cartridge or common tool can be used to remove the floor plate from the magazine body.

Q. What dealers will have access to HCM’s?
A. Authorized SureFire dealers in states with no high capacity regulations. Rules and processes are being developed for dealers located in states with regulations (CA, HI, IL, MD, MA, NY, OH, DC).

    The double cylinder beta mags and the new 150 rounder are so much more practical but will set you back 2 bills and the second 150 rounder will cost as much as a new AR-15. Go beta it stands out as the alpha mag!

    I’d prefer a 30 or 40 round “wide-body” mag like this. That would give me good capacity, but still allow me to shoot from prone or off the bench.

    $130 for the 60 rounder and $180 for the 100 according to an MSRP listing. Pretty spendy.

    Magpul has a similar design coming which I suspect will be cheaper as well.

  • Wow…what a stocking stuffer.

    Will these magazines work with .50 Beowulf rounds?
