Engineered as a true 8 round magazine, this magazine has all the features of our original 7 round magazine that has proven itself over the last century. Features that you know it should have, like a steel follower, heavy duty spring, and super-tough base pad. The magazine tube has been lengthened and the base pad wraps around securely, to properly accommodate the 8th round while keeping the original ultra-reliable follower design. The integral base pad easily removes for disassembly and cleaning of the magazine. Black Nitride for a durable, low glare, non-reflective finish. The non-slip, oversized base pad allows for a secure grip no matter what the conditions. The 88 blank number templates on the bottom allows you to easily number and track usage of your mags from 0 up to 99 if you desire (think digital numbers on a standard alarm clock). If you want the most reliable, highest quality 8 round magazine you can buy, look no further!
