As many of you know, I like the 6.5 Grendel. I have not been real happy with the magazines for the caliber. I am using the Elander magazines at the moment. They work okay but they rattle when loaded. That is not good if you are hunting.
Amend2 has been working a polymer magazine. It is unique in that it feeds the ammunition up to one side of the magazine instead of pushing in each round from the left or right side. If you look at an AR magazine, it is staggered. So each time the bolt closes it picks up a round from one side then from the other side. The Amend2 is supposed to solve that. I know they are making a 10 round magazine first. After all there are many jurisdictions that only allow 10 rounds so why wouldn't you make that one first? Hopefully they will come out with a higher capacity magazine. Very Unique and I hope to have some soon. They were shown at Shot Show 2019. It is August now and while I have been given costs, we are still waiting for magazines. I think they will have them 100% when they are released.
Here are some more photos of the prototype.
Yet another 6.5 Grendel first, Amend2 is going to make magazines for the Grendel. This is a really unique design. The lower part of the magazine is double column. The follower feeds the rounds up into a single column. The rounds will only enter from one side. Look for these on the Harbour Arms Website in April.
