Magpul Developed a 60-Round Quad Magazine

Wednesday, April 5th, 2017

Quad Mag Prototype, 60-Round Capacity 2009

Shortly after the introduction of the original PMAG, Magpul began working on increased capacity solutions. The “Quad” or “Coffin” mag concept never delivered the reliability in rough handling and adverse conditions that they require from their magazine products, and so the design never made it into production. Lessons learned during this program eventually fed into the D-60 program.

SHOT Show 2015 – Magpul – Dyed Magazines

Sunday, February 1st, 2015


In case you didn’t know, Magpul introduced the new Sand color for their M3 PMAGs. These new mags are not only stronger than the original black M3 PMAGs, but they’re also much more receptive to water-based dye processes, allowing for a greater range of colors. Over at the Magpul booth, Jon Canipe was kind enough to line up the dye jobs they came up with just in time for the show. I gotta say that the pink came out pretty damn good.

MagPul Announces Boulder Airlift

Sunday, March 3rd, 2013

The other day we told you that MagPul wants to get as many PMAGs in the hands of law abiding Coloradans as possible before a ban. Here is their plan.


Magpul is proud to announce the “Boulder Airlift”, our program to make sure that responsible Colorado citizens have the opportunity to own standard capacity PMAGs prior to the potential implementation of pending legislation that would infringe on their Second Amendment Rights. The program will be open to all responsible CO residents, (with both billing and shipping addresses inside CO) and provide access to a limited quantity of PMAGs. Remember to contact members of the Senate and the Governor prior to ordering and urge them to oppose HB 1224.

Full details at http://www.magpul.com/colorado

Similar to the Berlin Airlift, the Boulder Airlift will bring much needed supplies to freedom-loving residents trapped inside occupied territory. While we plan to initially use FedEx or UPS instead of aerial delivery, we figure that $5 flat rate shipping will make up for any loss of “style points.”

The increases we have made and continue to make in production capacity will allow us to open this program with very minimal impact on the number of PMAGs we are shipping to our dealers and distributors out of the state. We are also aware that Colorado is not the only state with existing or pending magazine capacity restrictions; we are working on programs for other affected states as well.

New Magpul PTS CIBoys

Wednesday, September 5th, 2012

Seen above are Bag Man, Dr. Drake, Pink Fluffy Bunny, and White Bunny, the four new CIBoys created through a collaborative effort between Magpul PTS and Mad Rabbit Studio, a Taiwan based creative design house. The four CIBoys are inspired by Magpul Industries and as such feature the Magpul logo somewhere on their design. No word on pricing and availability at the moment. Also, I’ll be damned if Pink Fluffy Bunny doesn’t look like an unholy union of Frank the Bunny from Donnie Darko and the Trollface of internet fame, but with a red suit.

King Arms Colt M4 MOE

Saturday, September 17th, 2011

The King Arms Colt M4 MOE is an officially licensed Colt AEG airsoft rifle outfitted with authentic Magpul PTS accessories. It features a full metal barrel and internals including the full-metal gearbox with 7mm bearings and a high-torque motor. For those interested in exactly which Magpul parts are included, they are a MBUS flip-up rear sight, MOE hand guard, MOE pistol grip, MOE stock and a 360-round magazine modeled after the PMAG. At 7 lbs., it’s around the same weight as a real steel M4 which makes it great for training. Two models were released, one with black and one with tan accessories.
