All Your Really Need to Know to Shoot Well

A First Hand Look at the Smith and Wesson M&P15 Sport AR-15

The AR15 rifle is produced in many different versions, including numerous semi-automatic and other selective fire variants by many manufacturers. Although many of the variations and changes are so subtle that you may not notice them right away, the impact of the changes as the firearm evolves provides for a better overall and practical use of this firearm. This practicality, along with their precision and modularity, makes the AR15 rifle popular among civilian shooters and law enforcement forces world-wide.

The AR15 rifle is a fantastically fun firearm to own as well as shoot and the latest and greatest varieties are now available at Impact Guns; one of our favorite affiliated sponsors.

AR-15/M16 32-round 9mm Magazine Available Now at Brownells

Did you know that Brownells is now manufacturing a Colt style AR-15/M16 32-round 9mm magazine?

Build Your Dream AR15 Today
Brownells rugged, high-capacity AR-15/M16 32-round 9mm magazine is designed for 9mm AR-15 conversions like Colt and Rock River Arms that use a Colt or modified UZI magazine.

These reliable magazines are held to the same stringent quality standards as Brownells standard issue 30 round magazines that the US military has come to rely on.

The polymer model has a lightweight, reinforced molded polymer body that resists damage if dropped on a hard surface and has deeply molded grasping ridges to give you a firm hold when inserting the mag into the rifle.

Polymer model features include an anti-tilt follower to aid in smooth movement of the round stack for reliable feeding.

The steel model magazines are constructed of rugged heat-treated steel and coated with friction and corrosion reducing matte black Xylan coating.

The steel magazines have features such as durable steel follower for that smooth movement of the round stack, hold open tab, and numbered witness holes that let you make a quick check of remaining round count.

If you would like to see the magazines up close (but not quite personal), feel free to view the Brownells AR-15 32 Round 9mm Magazine video below. Be sure to continue reading below the video for more features, additional requirements, and the brand specifications.

Both the polymer and steel AR-15/M16 32-round 9mm magazine models ensure reliability and painless cleaning – they are capped off with an easy to remove floor plate.

You will need a lower receiver conversion block to use these magazines which are available and sold separately.

SPECS: Steel, Parkerized , matte black, or reinforced molded polymer, black. 32-round capacity, 9mm Luger only.

Made in the USA, Brownells’ AR-15/M16 32-round 9mm magazine, like all products sold by Brownells, are backed by Brownells’ 100% unconditional lifetime satisfaction guarantee.

Firearm Security is Your Responsibility

Today’s article is a video and promotion for Project ChildSafe.

This information is for anyone that owns a firearm. It is a reminder that when you own a firearm, you need to always respect it. Perhaps most importantly you need to always know where that firearm is and keep it secure to keep others safe, especially children. As a firearm owner it is our responsibility to ensure that our firearm is secure.

Project ChildSafe is a nationwide program that promotes safe firearms handling and storage practices among all firearm owners through the distribution of safety education messages and free firearm Safety Kits.

The kits include:
