Brownells AR .308/7.62 Magazines

Montezuma, IOWA – Fans of .308-caliber AR-style rifles can now enjoy the same thing owners of standard Black Rifles have for 10 years — Brownells ultra-reliable magazines for their favorite firearm.

The Brownells .308/7.62 magazines fit DPMS-pattern or SR-25 style rifles, and hold up to 20 rounds of hard-hitting .308 /7.62x51 ammunition.

The new .308 magazine is the product of many years of research and lessons learned from the battle-proven Brownells .223/5.56mm magazines, which continue to serve U.S. Forces in combat theatres worldwide.

The magazines are constructed with the following features:

  • Straight-body design; easily fits into existing mag pouches and carriers
  • Durable, lightweight aluminum construction
  • Specially-designed follower offers ultra-dependable function and reliability
  • Stainless steel spring ensures positive feeding & corrosion resistance
  • Removable floorplate for easy cleaning and maintenance
  • Dry-film lubricated body provides smooth feeding
  • Anti-corrosion finish protects magazine from the elements

"We began manufacturing our own magazines more than 10 years ago," said Brownells President/COO Matt Buckingham. "Our .223/5.56 magazines grew in popularity very quickly and eventually became standard-issue to the U.S. Military. It was great hearing from troops all over the world about how much they appreciate our magazines. So, we took the same concept and designed a 30-caliber magazine to meet the needs of the expanding AR-style .308/7.62x51 market. I'm certain customers will absolutely be impressed with the quality and reliability of these new mags."

In-stock and shipping now, the Brownells AR .308/7.62x51 magazines are listed as Brownells item #078-000-200, and are available at a retail price of $19.99.
