In case you hadn’t noticed, Magpul’s much more than magazines and AR furniture. They’ve become a full-line outdoor lifestyle brand in addition to selling all the handguards and backup iron sights you’ve grown to know and love. Because tactical and technical never seem to go out of style, and fall is almost here, Magpul’s adding […]
There’s no doubt that twelve-gauge AOWs command attention at the range, in the shop, or out in the field. They have an awesome look about them, they’re a ton of fun to shoot a variety of loads through, are great for breaching, and they make for a solid home defense option (with Laserlyte Center Mass?).
