Back in May, we offered a brief sneak peak of a production model MagPod. We’re happy to say that they’re now very close to being commercially available. Aside from frequent updates on the official MagPod Facebook page, with one comment hinting at a late November commercial release, they’ve also been sending out promotional MagPods taken from the production stock, a few of which we’ve received ourselves.


As a reminder, the MagPod is a replacement floor plate for Magpul MOE Gen2 Pmags which turns the magazine into an effective monopod, easily capable of balancing a fully-loaded carbine. It also functions quite well as a grip when grabbing a mag from its pouch.

Stay tuned for more info as it becomes available.
