Cross Armory recently introduced the SAFE MAG 2 (for non-mil-spec AR-15’s) and SAFE MAG 308, QUICK PINS 308 and PIN PAL 308 for gun owners with AR-10/308 rifles.
SAFE MAG 308 and SAFE MAG 2 are modifications, designed in California, for weapons in regulated states that require fixed magazines. They work like the original SAFE MAG, locking the magazine until the receivers are separated. SAFE MAG 308 comes in two varieties in order to accommodate the largest possible number of manufacturers and models.
It is our goal to engineer products to allow law-abiding residents in California, and elsewhere in the U.S., to enjoy shooting their weapons in a safe environment without fear of legal repercussions.
Our products are intended to be consistent with the fixed magazine laws which state that your weapon must have a “fixed magazine,” defined as “an ammunition feeding device contained in, or permanently attached to, a firearm in such a manner that the device can not be removed without disassembly of the firearm action.”
Cross Armory’s QUICK PINS allow for fast and reliable access to the most important parts of your weapon. They are machined from 7075 T-6 Aircraft Aluminum for high strength, light weight and durability.
Thanks to the QUICK PINS, the separation and re-joining of receivers requires minimal effort. Together QUICK PINS and SAFE MAG, whether for your AR-15 or AR-10/308, deliver the most efficient performance available.
Per Guns.com story earlier this year.
“For those in California, Carlsbad’s Cross Armory wants your AR-15 to disassemble like magic for quick fixed-mag exchanges, as shown in the above video.
Using their Quick Pins system, which replaces the rear takedown pin, Cross promises “the most convenient separation and locking of upper and lower receivers in the industry.”
Matched with Cross’s Safe Mag fixed magazine lock and release system, which automatically drops the magazine when the upper and lower receivers are separated, you get a system that enables the user to perform a pretty fast exchange of a fixed magazine while complying with new anti-bullet button laws that require a firearm to be disassembled to perform a mag change.”
