LAR-15 magazines are pistol magazines designed to take (10) rounds of .223 or 5.56x45mm. Normally, semi-automatic rifle magazines are limited to 5 rounds but because this magazine was designed for a pistol (the RRA LAR-15), it can take 10 rounds. You can use these magazines in your STANAG-compatible rifle such as your Norinco T97, AR15, Tavor, AR180B, Kel Tec SU16, or many more that have magwell adapters that support the STANAG standard magazines.
Still worried about the legal implications? Check out RCMP Special Bulletin 72, which states “…A similar example is the 10 round capacity magazine for the Rock River Arms LAR-15 pistol, regardless of the kind of firearm it is actually used in.” It’s named specifically in the bulletin as an example.

What other Magazines are there out there?
ATRS (Alberta Tactical Rifle Supply) produces their own polymer AT15 magazines that also hold 10 rounds each. While they cost a tiny bit more than the other metal LAR-15 mags, they also have an extended grip at the bottom to make them easier to grab out of a magazine pouch. This would make them a bit better for 3 gun and the like where a longer mag is easier to handle than the short 10 rounders.
There are also 50 Beowulf magazines that offer extended capacity.
