American Tactical has partnered with German arms manufacturer Schmeisser GmbH to exclusively import and distribute the Schmeisser S60 60 round AR-15 magazine.  Made from glass reinforced polymer, this patent-pending magazine features a unique follower system that allows for double capacity from a normal AR magazine without being bulky or cumbersome.  Designed to shoot both .223 REM & 5.56X45MM, the Schmeisser S60 will give you an instant capacity upgrade over the standard AR mag at an affordable price for your AR Carbine or Pistol.


The Schmeisser S60 was built specifically for .223REM or 5.56X45MM ammo only.  Schmeisser & American Tactical have found that the S60 may not operate with all types of .300 Blackout ammo.  Due to inconsistencies with different brands, Schmeisser does not recommend using 300 Blackout with this magazine.  Failure for the magazine to operate with 300 Blackout is not covered by American Tactical's Limited Lifetime Warranty.


Warning! - High Tension Spring

The Schmeisser S60 has a very powerful high tension spring.  Please use caution if disassembling the magazine for maintenance.  If not properly secured, spring may eject from the magazine when floor plate is removed and can cause serious injury.

Will it function with 450 Bushmaster?
Barron D on Jul 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Does ANY .223/5.556 work with 450 Bushmaster? If not you answered your own question.
Do these function on full auto, reliably, without failure ?
Paul F on Jul 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Worked fine with my M16 and american eagle ammo
What is the weight in ounces?
david w on Jul 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I weighed it empty for you. Mine weighed 9.35 ounces. It is a little heavier than my surefire 60 and much lighter than my magpul d60. I would weigh those for you but they are all loaded now and I didn't really want to unload them. Hope this helps.
Is this 60 round mag compatible with a DIAMOND BACK DB15 AR15 rifle?
Kareem R on Aug 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Compatible yes. Functional? No
Does this magazine function with 300aac blackout ammunition? If not, does the company plan on making a version that does?
Scooter on Jul 22, 2019

According to the ATI website they do not recommend using 300AAC with this magazine. I would call ATI to see if they plan on making one specifically for 300AAC.

Has anyone made it through 5 full 60 round mag dumps (300 rounds) with no FTF?
Connor H on Oct 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I have! In fact I run it on a suppressed AR pistol! So confident I am with it that it’s stays full, next to my bed, being used in my home defense weapon. Super easy to take apart and clean to remove carbon build up after suppressed fire.
Can you tell me the difference between this one and ATI SCHMEISSER 5.56/.223 AR-15 60RD G2 MLE MAGAZINE, BLACK - ATIM556S60MLE?
Richard M on Mar 2, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Nope but mine works great, deuces!
Does this work on a ARX100?
Christopher M. on Jul 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Will not lock in on an ARX 100, Magpul gen 2 work great though.
Hey they loaded fine for me, but they don’t hold in when I stick them in. Any tips?
Bdries on May 6, 2020
BEST ANSWER: This may depend on your rifle- some that take AR mags won't take this one due to the point on the magazine neck wgere it widens, like the Tavor for example. However if you're running a standard AR, I believe the issue is just that you need to push it in with more force. A fully loaded magazine, when inserted, will always require a little elbow grease to seat correctly because the top round gets pressed down by the closed bolt. Easiest fix is to just lock your bolt back, insert the magazine (tug on it to make sure it's seated and locked in), then close your bolt to rock and roll. The Schmeisser has almost twice the spring tension as your standard capacity 30 round magazine, so inserting a 60 round mag with the bolt closed should take roughly twice the arm strength to get that top couple rounds to depress a cm or so against the bolt.
Does this work on
a PSA m4 carbine ar15 5.56 NATO?
John M on Jan 14, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes - they will work with any standard AR-15 magazine well. Custom mag wells may not fit due to the neck width. For example, an IWI Tavor will take standard AR/M4 mags but has a longer magazine well so these don't fit that particular rifle. It works great for me, but definitely don't store it filled with ammo for weeks or months at a time though, the magazine neck will flex from the upward pressure and may misfeed

Great mag, fits well in aero ar. Hard to load at first but gets better after leaving it loaded for awhile.

I bought two of these one worked the other one was a complete failure it just plain sucked and there was nothing I could do to fix it, better yet save yourself the headache and just buy a magpul drum if you insist on a sixty round mag go with another company cause these strait up suck,at least I have one that works...

Good quality for the price
You can spend a lot more money on these which have a lot lower quality - Pretty happy with it - No double feeds when the spring is tightly compressed.
Fits nice, gets wider after leaving the mag well - Fits pretty nice for a 60 rd mag -

Solid magazine
This magazine functions well in the 2 or three lowers I have popped it into. Feeds reliably as far as I have used it. It does take a bit of force to load them once you get to about 40-45 rounds.

Runs on a double spring double follower system (pretty interesting if you ask me)

Best Mag I Bought
Very good Mag! works with the palmetto state and bushmaster with no problems, no bulky drums to carry and no wide staggered 30 round mags, Schmeisser is slim, balanced with side by side close quarter rounds.

If the site is sold out and you want one you're fault!

Love it
I don’t prefer round magazines. Wanted to try a different magazine so when I came across this mag on your website I took a chance and even though I’ve only been to the range twice, it has worked perfectly both times.
