You’ve been asking for it and Magpul has come through by announcing a new addition to the MBUS line: the MBUS Pro Offset sights. True to their name, the PRO Offset sights are designed to supplement magnified optics on M1913 rail mounting surfaces, providing iron sights at a 45 degree offset in the event of primary optic failure, or a close range target. Like the MBUS Pro sights, the Pro Offset sights feature Melonited steel construction, positive detented lockup, and tool-less adjustments.

    ProMag Industries Won’t Be Selling Anymore PMAG Lookalikes

    Wednesday, November 5th, 2014

    Despite reports to the contrary, the Magpul vs Brookshire Tool and Mfg Co dba ProMag Industries didn’t end in a draw. Magpul field suit against ProMag last year because the the PROMAG bore a striking resemblance to the PMAG. The case was settled late last month and the suit and countersuit dismissed in Federal Court but as with most of these settlements, everybody pays their own lawyers fees and walks away.
    Except, Magpul released this statement on their blog:

    MAGPUL AND PROMAG SETTLE PATENT INFRINGEMENT LAWSUIT
    November 4, 2014
    Magpul Industries Corp announced today that the parties have settled the patent infringement lawsuit that Magpul brought against ProMag based on ProMag’s selling and distribution of its magazines for AR15/M16 rifles and carbines. Magpul had alleged that these magazines violated its patents. The companies settled their dispute on confidential and mutually agreeable terms. As part of the settlement, ProMag agreed to discontinue sales of the accused magazines as currently configured.

    Magpul Announces New Armorer’s Tool Series

    Tuesday, October 28th, 2014

    Today, Magpul Industries announced their new Magpul Armorer’s Tool Series. Designed as a no-compromise alternative to common gunsmithing tools, the set currently consists of the Armorer’s Wrench and BEV Block, both made in the USA.

    MAG535 Armorers Wrench
    Armorer’s Wrench

    - Solid steel construction w/ grip-enhancing phosphate finish
    - Engages both stock and pin-style barrel nuts
    - Fits standard size flash hiders
    - Installs and removes rifle receiver extensions and carbine castle nuts
    - Extended teeth for use with ASAP plates
    - Two hammer faces
    - Works with 1/2″ torque wrench
    - Convenient bottle opener for refreshments (fits both Metric and SAE bottle caps)

    The Magpul Armorer’s Wrench is an exceptional product in a number of ways; its design, construction, and intent are a level above what has traditionally been available in a dedicated AR15 assembly and maintenance tool. However, one of the most unique things about the Armorer’s Wrench is the product development process that brought it to market. The Armorer’s Wrench was actually a product requested for Magpul’s internal use and then developed into a commercial product.

    At Magpul, our diverse and ever-expanding product line necessitates a tremendous amount of testing. Some of these tests include tolerance of environmental conditions, chemical and UV resistance, and controlled scientific strength testing among many others. As to be expected, one extremely crucial part of our product validation prior to bringing a new item to market is high-volume live fire testing. We are fortunate to have a wide selection of high-quality firearms and access to great industry partners and suppliers to maintain these firing schedules, and the world-class armorers at Magpul stay very busy repairing, refitting, reconfiguring, and maintaining our armory.

    The Armorer’s Wrench was purpose designed and built to provide our armory with a tool that would stand up to the volume of use that other tools could not sustain, as well as providing optimized functionality for the tasks it had to perform. The cost and lost time of breaking tools at an unacceptable rate came led to our armorers asking the company to apply our proven design and manufacturing expertise to solving their problem, and the Magpul Armorer’s Wrench is the result. While the cost was slightly higher than some other armorer’s tools, the function and durability more than offset the cost difference. Once the wrench proved its worth in our shop, the Armorer’s Wrench transitioned to a production item with a singular goal made possible by its many functions: to provide the professional, institutional, or recreational armorer the finest commercially available AR15-pattern tool ever produced.
