Last week, the Vermont legislature passed a series of gun control measures, one of which would limit magazine capacity to ten rounds for long guns and 15 rounds for handguns. Vermont’s governor has said he’ll sign the bills into law. Austin-based MAGPUL, with help from RECOIL Magazine, saw an opportunity to duplicate the success of […]
Designed to allow quick visual and/or tactile differentiation of up to three different ammo loads, even in the dark, Magpul’s new Tactile Lock-Plates (sold as Type 1 and as Type 2) are an easy and inexpensive solution.

In this case we bring news that Magpul as much as confirmed to Nick and myself that their quad-stack 60-round AR magazine is on hold, possibly permanently. Not to worry; you’ll soon be able to use the new Magpul Magazine […]
