After endless revisions to Hexmag’s concept, the first 3D prototype was shown to the gun community in early 2013. And while stacking 30 rounds into a lower receiver was certainly no easy task, we heard a resounding theme — “If you make that magazine, I’ll buy it.”
But prototyping was only the beginning. Months were devoted to fine-tuning Hexmag’s proprietary fiber-reinforced polymer. While we were at it, we dreamt up a tool-less design, pioneered an ammunition ID system and created Hexmag’s very own Grip Tape to complement our magazine’s one-of-a-kind hexagon design.
We were just a bunch of guys with a passion for firearms and a crazy idea that we could actually make an AR magazine that would deliver time and time again. Little did we know, we would become one of the first magazine manufacturers able to offer a Lifetime Warranty.
In the fall of 2013, Hexmag incorporated. By March of 2014, Hexmag officially sold its first AR15 magazine, and with that introduction, we broke the mold. October 2017, SENTRY Products Group purchased Hexmag and moved headquarters to Virginia Beach, VA.
PROPRIETARY FIBER-REINFORCED POLYMER CONSTRUCTION
Made from PolyHex2™ Advanced Composite, a proprietary fiber-reinforced polymer, SENTRY's Hexmag magazines are lighter than other leading AR-15 magazines — perfect for shooters looking for weight savings and ultimate durability. Though lighter, this polymer can stand up to most any torture test.
SENTRY'S HEXMAG DIFFERENCE
SENTRY's superior grip is achieved with our patented hexagonal surface pattern - Hexture™, as well as the pronounced ribbing on the front and back of the magazine. The combination provides a sturdy yet comfortable grip when changing magazines — rain or shine, wet or dry, gloves or no gloves.
The Anti-Tilt Follower was engineered with equal length legs to prevent tilting forward or backward to keep ammunition in a straight, double stack configuration for reliable feeding. Meanwhile, the follower, in Hexmag orange, allows for quick and safe visual inspection of the rifle with the magazine seated.
AN INDUSTRY-FIRST COLORED AMMUNITION I.D. SYSTEM
Before SENTRY, we marked our magazines just like you (with paint and tape), and like you, we saw a need to better mark AR15 magazines chambered with different calibers, which led us to introduce the industry’s first-ever colored ammunition identification system — the HexID Color Identification System. Now, you can easily find the correct magazine in critical situations.
ONE OF THE INDUSTRY’S ONLY LIFETIME WARRANTIES
Because every round counts, we offer one of the industry’s only firearm magazine lifetime warranties. We stand behind our products because we build quality and reliability in every magazine we make. When we broke the mold in magazines, we shattered the standard in customer service for firearm accessories.
