Magpul is one of the biggest names in the firearms industry, having innovated good looking, good feeling, feature-rich products for almost 20 years. Products that can be trusted to work. And, if anything, they’re picking up speed. Here’s some cool new stuff from NRAAM 2019:
The Magpul SL Grip Module fits MP5s as well as HK 91/93/94. It offers an ambi selector with HK pictograph markings. The left-side safety selector stops at semi-auto for us mere mortals, but by simply cutting off the molded-in ledge on which the selector stops it will then enable switching up to the full-auto position as well. Naturally, that doesn’t do anything on a semi-auto firearm but if you own an auto sear then you’re rocking and rolling.
Up front is either a shorty handguard for guns with a 5-inch barrel…
Or a long handguard for guns with an 8-inch barrel.
These are still 3D-printed prototypes and MSRP hasn’t been set. ETA for release is later this year. All of Magpul’s planned HK components can be found HERE.
Back at SHOT Show Magpul announced their pistol grip, 35-round magazine, and magazine release for the CZ Scorpion EVO. Last week CZ-USA announced two Magpul edition EVO 3 S1 Carbines, one with faux suppressor and one without. They feature all of the aforementioned Magpul components plus a Magpul ZHUKOV-S stock and Magpul MBUS sights. Magpul’s Scorpion EVO components can be found HERE.
Finally, the newest product in this mix is an addition to the Magpul bipod line, which I have become a big fan of. This bipod quickly and easily attaches to a standard sling stud.
By simply turning the knob at the bottom, the sling stud pinchers clamp together and draw downwards, tightening the bipod onto the stud and onto the rifle at the same time. A sling stud is built into the rear of the bipod so you still have a place for your sling swivel.
Cool. Lightweight, simple, affordable, and feature-rich with tilting, panning, and rapid leg length adjustment, I like Magpul’s bipods.
