Lancer Systems Adaptive magwell adapter promises to fit most forged AR/M4 lowers out there!

Lancer Systems recently released a new product and we here at Breach-Bang-Clear had the chance to try it while touring their facility. The Adaptive Magwell hearkens back to their popular line of lower receivers, which feature an interchangeable system. Need a big funnel for competition? No problem, slide and lock the big magwell on. Need a smaller, less bulky option for home defense or duty? Swap it out for a smaller, standard size magwell. This system has proven to be popular, but unfortunately was limited to only their own proprietary lower receivers.

That is, until now.


Lancer is currently working on a QD version which will fit military carbines, which have a more common spec.


Joint Task Force Awesome

The New Adaptive Magwell will most likely fit your in-spec, forged lower. The 6061 T6 aluminum adapter is easily assembled to your favorite blaster in a matter of minutes, using only a single Allen wrench. Simply open the GI style trigger guard, by pressing the front detent spring in to pop it free. (As though you were going to shoot it in winter glove mode.) Half the unit slides onto the lip of your current magazine well, and connects with the rear half with two Allen head screws. Its pretty quick to put on and take off and will fit a wide range of receivers on the market. As we noted earlier, the added advantage of using this adapter on the range is that it’s nearly impossible to botch a reload.  Even holding your rifle straight out, with the magazine well facing the deck, you can easily keep your eyes down range while executing a quick reload.


The Adaptive Magwell assembles in a few minutes via two Allen head bolts.

The large, funnel like opening makes a world of difference in guiding the mag home to fully seat. We see value in this product for dudes that use their patrol rifle/ home defense gun in competition, but want a slimmer profile off the range. For warfighters, it can be used in the field and on deployment, but still easily removed before turning your carbine back into the armory. If you are looking for a faster, smoother reload, this just might be your ticket. 


Magwell Adapter fitted to a standard AR-15….It makes reloads damn near idiot proof!

The Adaptive Magwell is currently available HERE, and has a MSRP of $99.99. While not a cheap part, it’s well made and offers an option some desire. Check it out, and if you end up putting one on your AR let us know what you think of it in the comment section. 


Another teaser of the “military” model, yet to be released. Check back for updates!

I’ll advise further once I’ve installed one and put it through it’s paces.


No Bullshit - Big Daddy Unlimited is a legit program.

It’s a good program, and you’ll be supporting Breach-Bang-Clear when you join.

    I wish it would work with my Stark Equipment pistol grip that has the integral trigger guard, but I may have to get their newer version that doesn’t have that so I can try this magwell. Maybe eventually.

    I’ll have to grab one of these for my 300BLK. Used to have a FAB magwell grip on, but I couldn’t use 60 & 100 rd. Surefire mags with it. This looks like it should work.
