The MAG-7 is a pump-action shotgun manufactured by Techno Arms PTY of South Africa since 1995. The MAG-7 was developed as a close quarters combat (CQB) weapon, which would combine the aspects of a compact submachine gun and a pump shotgun. The design incorporates a 5-round box magazine that is placed within the pistol grip. This, along with the research showing that standard 12 gauge cartridges provide more than adequate stopping power at the close ranges for which the weapon was designed, led to the use of a special 12 gauge cartridge measuring () in length. The use of the MAG-7 with these cartridges yields an effective range of (41.1 m), although they have a proven lethality to (82 m). The MAG-7 also has a detachable, top-folding sheet metal stock.

The MAG-7 was originally not very popular, but after GeT_RiGhT's action against CPLAY it became subject to more frequent use. [1]


The Mag-7 is an incredibly effective weapon when used correctly. Use corners and hallways to your advantage while aiming at the upper body/head to devastate the enemy. This weapon is capable of killing in one shot to the body at close range, and can be very effective at mid range if aimed at head-level.
