Saturday Snapshot

A soldier from 3rd Battalion The Parachute Regiment, is pictured with his L85 A2 rifle fitted with a new lightweight polymer magazine.

Made from a lightweight plastic, the 30-round Magpul EMAG magazine is around half the weight of a standard metal magazine, yet even more robust.   The EMAG’s durability is further enhanced by an easily detachable cover to help protect against dust and sand while the magazine is being carried – meaning fewer need replacing.
