MEC-GAR has been widely known for being one of the premier producers of pistol magazines since it’s founding in 1965. Unlike many other manufacturers, MEC-GAR is solely invested in producing magazines and magazine accessories. This allows for their full attention to be placed on this vital component of the firearm. MEC-GAR has lead the industry with many innovations that have advanced the functionality of magazines. For instance, some of MEC-GARs best selling products are their high capacity magazines that allow for the magazine to hold and extra two rounds while retaining the same magazine dimensions. In addition to this, MEC-GAR does offer magazines with extended, Plus 2 base plates, which, as the name implies, allows for the addition of two additional rounds in the magazine.
Another MEC-GAR feature that has gotten a lot of attention is their advanced Anti-Friction Coating. This coating allows for easier removal from mag pouches and more smooth loading and unloading into the firearm. In addition to decreasing the surface friction when inserting the magazine, the AFC coating also acts as a powerful anti-corrosive coating. This will help to extend the service life of your magazines to help you get this most out of your equipment.
MEC-GAR takes several steps to ensure that their magazines are top of the line and will provide their users with long, reliable service. For instance, MEC-Gar heat-treats their steel magazine bodies. To is done to increase the strength of the Mag bodies, thereby being more resistance to hard use and resisting deformation that would render other magazine useless. This heat-treating process is carefully monitored and results in an increase in surface hardness. Due to this heat-treating, the surface hardness will go from 550 Vickers to 750 Vickers. In addition to heat-treating, MEC-GAR offers several surface treatments as well. These surface treatments include their proprietary Anti-Friction Coating (AFC), black phosphate, Nickel, phosphorous and black oxide coatings. These coating can provide a color that you want and also increase the corrosion resistance of the magazine.
Continuing with their trend of reliability and durability, MEC-GAR take the time to manufacture the best magazine components on the market. Starting from the bottom, the MEC-GAR base plates are composed of either fiber filled nylon or they are made from heat-treated steel. These base plates have been engineered and manufactured to withstand the most severe magazine drop tests. Going to the internals of their magazines, the followers are made from either injected polymer, micro die cast metal alloy, or stamped heat-treated steel. These high reliability followers allow for positive feeding, smooth travel and offer a long service life. Magazine springs can often make or break the entire magazine. This is why ME-GAR pays close attention to this component. By using springs that are fabricated from high tensile strength wire, MEC-GAR is able to offer a premium grade product. Their springs are made under stringent design requirements and are provide with reinforced spring coils with stiffening folds. This has the effect of increasing their thrust force, leaving you with a more reliable magazine.
