About AR-15 M16 REDI-MAGs:
Don’t lose precious seconds in competition or combat fumbling for a spare magazine during a reload. Rugged, all-steel speed loading system clamps directly to the receiver of any AR-15/M16 rifle or carbine and securely holds a second, fully loaded magazine alongside the mag well for super fast mag changes.


More reliable and easier to use than improvised methods—like taping two magazines together—that can cause malfunctions at critical moments. Closed-top design protects the spare mag from rain, dirt, dust, and debris and prevents the top round from jumping forward under recoil.

Installation requires no permanent alterations to receiver or mag well. Choose A1 model where frequent removal of the Redi-Mag is not necessary. Dual release system allows a quick push on the gun’s mag release to drop the empty magazine from the rifle and free the spare magazine, ready for reloading—excellent for competition. Includes a remote bolt release button that activates your rifle’s bolt release. A2 and QA models include the dual release system and also allow quick attach/detach of entire Redi-Mag from the weapon. All models release the spare mag and the mag in the rifle independently to allow tactical reloads and greater flexibility for clearing malfunctions.

BCE models omit the remote bolt release button and substitute a separate, Bolt Catch Extension that mounts directly to the factory bolt release. Makes the bolt release easier and faster to operate with or without the Redi-Mag attached to the gun, simply by slapping the BCE with an open palm.
