Magpul is a company big enough that they never seem to be the type to dump a press release in my inbox. Instead, they just rely on their massive, and well-deserved fanbase to spread the word. Well that and the occasional short, cryptic, Youtube video.
Released only a few minutes ago (at least as I type this) the new Magpul tease is all of 12 seconds long with direct references to ‘Die Hard’ (including the jingle bells). ‘Die Hard’ is most assuredly a gun guy movie. The fact that it stars an actual pro-gun actor is an added bonus and it’s changed action movies.
As much as I could wax poetically about ‘Die Hard’ this is about the Magpul teaser. The ‘Die Hard’ vibe starts with the video’s title, “Welcome to the party, pal.” Then there’s the gentleman in the wife-beater walking with a Beretta duct-taped to his back…and some fleeting shots of a few MP5-style weapons.
The weapons are outfitted with Magpul gear we’ve seen before. This includes the Magpul Handguard and SMG Magpuls. Missing from the shot appears to be the Magpul SL Grip Module. The one in the video looks quite a bit different than the Magpul model, however, I’m willing to be wrong on that.
Could Magpul be releasing more MP5 gear on Friday? If they are simply releasing the MP5 gear they’ve shown us before I’ll be a bit disappointed by the cryptic teaser. I’m not an MP5 guy, but MP5 P-MAGs would be very neat. I have some Scorpion EVO P-MAGs and love them, so maybe Mapgul can work their magic.
Check out the video and let us know what you think the new item(s) will be. It seems a bit much for gear they’ve already revealed. I have my hopes up for something new.
