This is a near fully printable 5.56mm X 45mm or .233 REM AR-15 magazine. It is current only a 5 round magazine. I left my printed spring design out on purpose for saftey reasons. However, with a little printing experimention and some range time it can be made easily.
What is included is the magazine body, anti-tilt follower, and floorplate.
I have used this magazine, no jams or feed problems..... YET. It works, but be reminded it is only a printed ABS magazine. If you end up using a printed ABS mag spring be prepared for stress relaxation of the polymer over time, especailly if it is kept loaded over a long period of time.

The mag catch recess on the mag body(I don't know the official term) needs to move down from the feed lips approximately .010"-.015". My friends AR-15 sometimes would not feed the next round after firing. I believe that will address his problem. This will move the whole body up into the mag well approximate that far. Hopefully, that won't cause any issues with the bolt. I will post the fix sometime late tonight or early tomorrow. I apologize.

Well, the zombies are at it again.........and you forgot your magazines out in your vehicle. Doh!
1) You Have a need for an 5.56mm X 45mm AR-15 magazine. Those pesky zombies are at your door AGAIN.
2) In a case with zombies, make sure you can hold them at bay for approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes for printing + 15-20 minutes for cleaning and sanding. Perhaps some pieces of wood nailed to the windows and doors would do the trick?
3) Download the needed files ... if zombies have not destroyed the web yet.
4) Use a 3D solid modeling program to make your printable magazine spring
5) PRINT AND HOLD OFF THOSE ZOMBIES!!! Also don't lean against any boarded up windows or doors because as we have seen in the movies the zombies will punch through the boards and grab you or your loved ones at the most in opportune time.
6) After the print is successful, clean with some 150 grit sandpaper and finish with some 400-600 grit sandpaper. Make sure it is smooth and any hanging plastic is taken care of. We wouldn't want any round feeding malfunctions while battling zombies?
7) Now to assemble. Drop the follower in the mag body, put the spring in the body making sure proper contact with the follower, and now slide the floorplate onto the the bottom of the magazine body and load.
8) By now, those boarded up windows and doors may have been compromised.... and you are holed up in your cellar with your 3D printer but now you can defend yourself against those Zombies. GOOD LUCK!
