HOGUE AR-15 FREEDOM FIGHTER FIXED MAGAZINE CONVERSION KIT
As a testament to American ingenuity we are beginning to see more and more accessories to keep AR-15 rifles in the hands of American shooters who live in restricted states. While all these devices accomplish their goal shooters end up with severely neutered AR’s. It’s better than nothing though. The HOGUE AR-15 FREEDOM FIGHTER FIXED MAGAZINE CONVERSION KIT is one such accessory. The Hogue fixed magazine conversion kit consists of parts and a drill jig to perform required a modification to an AR lower receiver to make it a fixed magazine lower. Once the AR is modified the upper and lower must be opened to remove the magazine.
HOGUE AR-15 FIXED MAGAZINE CONVERSION KIT
Converts Your AR-15 Into a Fixed-Magazine Rifle
The Hogue Freedom Fighter AR-15 Fixed Magazine Conversion Kit lets you turn a standard, mil-spec AR-15 lower receiver into a fixed magazine lower to comply with various state and local restrictions on detachable mags. Sure, we know these restrictions serve no constructive purpose, but the law is the law and responsible gun owners have to comply.
Once the Freedom Fighter AR-15 Fixed Magazine Conversion Kit is installed, the magazine can only be released when the upper receiver is disassembled from the lower receiver. The Freedom Fighter Conversion Kit is a permanent attachment, but the user can uninstall it to return the rifle to a normal drop-magazine operation when you move to a more firearm-friendly jurisdiction. Kit includes:
- 3 spring-and-pin assemblies
- Drilling jig
- Two drill bits
- Spring and pin assemblies for converting additional rifles are sold separately as the Freedom Fighter Fixed Magazine Refill Kit
