60 & 100 Round AR Magazines from Surefire…

Who would’ve thunk it?

SureFire High Capacity Magazines (HCMs) are the result of an entirely new division at SureFire, in partnership with L. James Sullivan and Bob Waterfield of Arm West, LLC. Mr. Sullivan is best known for co-developing the Armalite AR-15/M16 (M16A1) rifle and the original 20-round 5.56mm box magazine. They will be assembled and distributed by SureFire’s new Reno, Nevada, facility, the company’s first venture outside of Southern California, and will initially be available only from authorized SureFire dealers in states without any HCM regulations.

According to my source, they should be available to purchase in March with opportunities for media test firing at the SHOT show in January.
