The Lancer L5 AWM AR-15 magazine was designed to be the best AR-15 magazine available on the market. The Lancer AR-15 mag utilizes a hybrid polymer and steel construction. This allows the magazine to have the best of both worlds.
The Lancer L5 AWM has steel feed lips. The steel used for the feedlips is hardened to ensure that it can handle hard use. The feed lips on an AR-15 are a crucial part of the design. Damage to the feed lips can quickly incapacitate an AR-15 magazine. This is why Lancer elected to use steel for this vital part of the design. The steel feedlips are very robust and able to handle intense situations without deforming, causing malfunctions or otherwise causing issues.
Polymer Mag Body
