Ammo Armor - Protection For Your Magazines

Ammo Armor - Protection For Your Magazines
Though some are unique, Ammo Armor covers are compatible with similarly profiled magazines. These are made in United States and are available in midnight black, olive drab or desert tan. $10

We’ve all heard the phrase, “Necessity is the mother of invention.” If you’ve shot guns long enough, you’ve likely encountered a dirty magazine that had fallen to the ground or into mud and water. Of course, the debris that enters a magazine can work into the pistol’s action to produce a malfunction or even damage the firearm.

The solution is simple, and Ammo Armor’s new sleeve is one of those products that makes one think, “I could have invented that!” But you didn’t, and now there’s a patent pending. Ammo Armor is a cover for pistol magazines that is made of polyethylene, a high-end plastic that feels high quality. Polyethylene is resistant against the use of aggressive cleaning solvents as well as heat. These are dustproof, impact resistant and water repellent to protect the operation of a magazine that’s not in use. If a magazine is dropped onto dirt, would you not think about cleaning it before putting it into a gun and trying to shoot from it?

G&A has found several other great uses for Ammo Armor. Consider the magazines stored in the console or glove box of a vehicle. Ammo Armor’s covers even protect spare magazines haphazardly thrown into a range bag. (They don’t have to be loaded to need protection.) Besides the random debris that already exists inside any given bag, we’ve found that Ammo Armor also protects the feed lips on a magazine. If you’ve ever tried using magazines with bent feed lips, you know it’s difficult to trust the reliability of the suspect mags.

Ammo Armor can be used to guard spare magazines from lint when carried in a pocket. With the magazine drawn, these covers are easy to pull off quickly. There’s even a U-notch designed at the base of each cover to provide additional purchase for pinching the baseplate of a magazine and pulling the magazine and Ammo Armor apart.

Many Ammo Armor covers work with other magazines with similar profiles. However, there are magazine-specific covers. Find the right Ammo Armor cover engineered to fit your magazines at

Guns & Ammo TV: Shooting 1,270 Yards with the 5.56 NATO

Guns & Ammo TV: Shooting 1,270 Yards with the 5.56 NATO

Guns & Ammo Rifles & Optics Editor Tom Beckstrand was on location in Idaho where he pushed the limits of the 5.56 NATO cartridge in this segment of “Long Range Tech” for Guns & Ammo TV. Pairing a SIG Sauer MCX Virtus rifle loaded with Hornady's 73-grain ELD-M ammunition, Beckstrand attempted to ring steel set at 1,270 yards, an incredible distance for any 5.56-chambered rifle and beyond the typical range for an AR-15.

Shooting 600 Yards with .300 Blackout

The .300 Blackout cartridge was developed to provide greater effectiveness than a 9mm at short and medium ranges when fired from a short-barreled suppressed firearm. Just because the cartridge wasn't designed to go long doesn't mean Rifles & Optics Editor Tom Beckstrand won't take it there, using a large-format pistol, no less. Armed with SIG Sauer's 9-inch-barreled MCX Virtus Pistol loaded with Black Hills' 125-grain TMK ammunition, Beckstrand attempts to ring steel at 600 yards with help from Hornady's 4DOF ballistic calculator in this segment of “Long Range Tech.”
