Cincinnati, OH - Faxon Firearms, manufacturer of the ARAK-21 Upper Receiver that fits any mil-spec AR 15 lower platform, is proud to announce the addition of two new calibers of their Magazine Marker Bands.

The Magazine Marker Bands are perfect for shooters who change calibers repeatedly and are used to easily identify which magazine is holding which caliber of ammunition. Ranges with multiple rental guns will also be able to utilize these bands for added safety steps.

The bands can be purchased in 5.56/.223, 300 BLK or 7.62x39. Each pack is color coded in either red (300 BLK), blue (5.56/.223) or yellow (7.62x39). There are 10 bands per package.
