Lancer Systems L5 Advanced Warfighter Magazine, 5.56x45mm NATO Opaque

$16.09 - $16.99
SKU: W-999-000-2320-O//Mixed Availability


The L5AWM is the only HYBRID AR magazine available today featuring the best characteristics of Polymer and Steel magazine designs.

Due to state law restrictions, high capacity magazines cannot be shipped to the following states: CA, CO, CT, DC, HI, MD, MA, NJ, NY. It is the responsibility of the customer to know and abide with state or local gun laws.

The L5AWM fills the gap between the current metal and polymer magazine designs combing the best features from both designs into a unique hybrid magazine. L5AWM has the reliability of a steel magazine, the durability of a polymer magazine and the weight of an aluminum magazine.

Unique to the AWM is the one piece wrap-around hardened steel feed lip assembly that is permanently attached to an impact resistant polymer body. The hardened steel feed lips won’t bend, break or deform due to rough handling or long term storage.

An aggressive surface texture has been applied to the polymer body to improve gripping and retrieval from pouches. The combination of steel and polymer result in a lightweight, robust magazine tough enough for professional use.

NOT a Steel Magazine. Lightweight polymer body is impact resistant from -40F to 180F, won’t dent like steel and weighs the same as aluminum

The internal geometry of the Advanced Warfighter Magazine is a constant curve that has been maximized to feed the 5.56X45mm NATO round and has a non-tilting follower for trouble-free feeding. The feed lips are made from a single piece of precision formed steel that is hardened, then PTFE coated for corrosion resistance. The body and component materials are corrosion and chemical resistant, passing military chemical testing, including exposure to DEET.

The L5 AWM is compatible with modern weapon systems; M4/M16/AR, HK416, SCAR16, and the ARX160 to name a few and is available in 20 and 30 round capacity with an opaque polymer body.

  • Tactical Magazine Changes

    • Drops free from lower receivers
    • The magazine is designed to resist damage from rough handling, dropping and abuse
    • Hardened steel feedlips eliminate breakages and spread

Great Mags


In 18 months in Afghainstan they never failed me. What more could you want.

Love Lancer!


Using these for duty in Africa on deployment. Never fail, no swelling after sustained fire when other plastic mags swell up and you cannot jettison them from hot receivers. Love Lancer ... best money can buy.


"What is the available stock on this item? I'm looking to order 100 to replace worn steel magazines for our members. Thanks"
