A Viper Innovation Cell and CATM Collab - Shaw AFB Implements 3-D Printed M-4 Magazine Speed Loading Ram

U.S. Air Force Airmen fire the M-4 carbine during proficiency training at the Combat Arms Training and Maintenance (CATM) range at Shaw Air Force Base, S.C., Nov. 8, 2023. The Viper Innovation Cell and CATM teams collaborated to implement the use of a 3-D printed M-4 Magazine Speed Loading Ram (MMSLR) to reduce the time required to load a weapon. During a full round of firing, Airmen shoot upwards of 300 rounds, with the MMSLR, loading a full 30-round magazine can be completed in under a minute.
