The MOE-K is now shipping in a updated configuration, featuring an aggressive new TSP texture and a slight increase in the grip diameter.

The MOE-K is designed as a drop-in upgrade for the standard AR-15/M16 pistol grip, offering a low-profile, compact design and steeper grip angle compared to traditional styles.

The Magpul PMAG 30 AK/AKM MOE Magazine Is Shipping In Time For SHOT Show!

Thursday, January 9th, 2014

Magpul started teasing us last year with an AK mag. Now, here they are.

Magpul 30 rd AK Mag

The Magpul PMAG 30 AK MOE is a lightweight, 30-round polymer magazine for 7.62×39 Kalashnikov pattern rifles (AK-47, AKM, AKS, SIG556R and others.) It features a removable floorplate, constant curve geometry, and a high-reliability/low-friction follower for the affordable performance you expect from a MOE PMAG. Interestingly, they don’t feature metal locking lugs making a lot of folks skeptical at this stage. With my luck they’ll sell out while I’m at SHOT and OR.

Johnny PMAGs Still Available Through Grey Ghost

Wednesday, January 8th, 2014

Limited numbers of these magazines are still available for those who want to support John’s kids.

During SHOT Show Drake Clark reached me about helping out with an upcoming project. John Noveske had just passed away and Magpul was going to commit to a run of special “Johnny” PMAGs to raise money for his family. He asked if I would help. While I had only met John once through the introduction of Stickman, we had quite a few friends in common. And, I appreciated his hard work and innovation. “Sure,” I told Drake, “count me in!”

Now, I know some of you guys are asking yourselves why the family of a guy who owned a business would need money. Well, my answer is simple. It’s for his kids. Very, very few small business owners are rich, or even well off. They work insane hours and put everything extra back into the business. And now, in the case of Noveske Rifleworks, John – the creative force behind the brand, is gone. It will never be the same and the lives of his kids will never be the same. As a father and small business owner, I can tell you, none of this was lost on me. It’s the reason I agreed to be a part of this and a reason I purchased some of these magazines when they were first available.


Now mind you, all of this planning for the Johnny mag was going on during the panic of 2013. Despite this, Magpul came through with the initial push which they offered in conjunction with Noveske. And then, another tragedy struck, and a similar magazine-based fundraising campaign came along. And during that period, in late Spring, 300 Johnny PMAGs showed up at my door. When I was planning to start this fundraising effort, I foolishly thought I could offer them through PayPal, but I soon found out that wasn’t possible. Then, eBay was a bust. SSD has a long reach but what we don’t have is a web store. Once the other fundraising effort ended I reached out to my friends at Grey Ghost Gear and they thankfully agreed to handle the sales aspect of this effort.

If you missed out on the initial run of Johnny mags, Grey Ghost has just under 300 (they are selling already). The Johnny PMAG is a Magpul GEN M2 30 round PMAG designed for 5.56×45 NATO and .223 Remington AR15/ M4 platform weapons. This memorial magazine includes the Noveske “Flaming Pig” on one side, and the Noveske logo on the flip side.



Please join us in supporting the Noveske and remembering an innovator by purchasing one or more of these memorial magazines.

Breaking – Magpul Announces Move

Thursday, January 2nd, 2014

Magpul announces their move, going wisely with the split location option. Personally, I see Texas as a risky move in the out years with so much pressure to naturalize illegal workers to citizenship. Based on national trends there is good reason to believe that this would strengthen the Democrat base in that State. Traditionally, Democrats support gun legislation, introducing bills to restrict Second Amendment rights. As for the multitude of doubters and armchair MBAs who didn’t believe that Magpul was actually moving shop; eat it. Having said that, 3 huzzahs for Magpul and lovers of Freedom everywhere.


Company Is Moving Operations to Wyoming and Texas

Magpul Industries announced today that it is relocating its operations to Wyoming and Texas.

The company is relocating manufacturing, distribution and shipping operations to Cheyenne, Wyoming. Magpul is leasing a 58,000 square foot manufacturing and distribution facility during the construction of a 100,000 square foot build-to-suit facility in the Cheyenne Business Parkway. The Wyoming relocation is being completed with support from Governor Matt Mead, the Wyoming Business Council and Cheyenne LEADS.

Magpul is moving its corporate headquarters to Texas. Three North Central Texas sites are under final consideration, and the transition to the Texas headquarters will begin as soon as the facility is selected. The Texas relocation is being accomplished with support from Governor Rick Perry and the Texas Economic Development Corporation.

“Magpul made the decision to relocate in March 2013 and has proceeded on an aggressive but deliberate path” says Doug Smith, Chief Operating Officer for Magpul Industries. “These dual moves will be carried out in a manner that ensures our operations and supply chain will not be interrupted and our loyal customers will not be affected.”

The company began a nationwide search for a new base of operations after legislation was enacted in Colorado that dramatically limits the sale of firearms accessories – the core of Magpul’s business. Magpul plans on initially transitioning 92% of its current workforce outside of Colorado within 12-16 months and will maintain only limited operations in Colorado.

“Moving operations to locations that support our culture of individual liberties and personal responsibility is important,” says Richard Fitzpatrick, Chief Executive Officer for Magpul Industries. “Moving to a true multi state operation will also allow Magpul to utilize the strengths of both Texas and Wyoming as we continue to expand.”

Magpul Enters Dedicated 2-Point Sling Market With MS1

Tuesday, December 17th, 2013

The new MS1 Sling from Magpul is a dedicated 2-Point model that can also be used as a Single Point Sling through the use of adapters.


It’s built around their MS1 slider to provide rapid adjustments to either lengthen or shorten the sling with no slipping once set, and no tails, loops, or other potential snag hazards. The MS1 system also has a series of adapters that are sold separately and based on the MS3 and MS4 slings. By adding the appropriate adapter (available in Paraclip or QD) for the sling, you can easily add one-point functionality to your MS1.

They’ve been perfecting the design for some time now and had this to say about development -

In testing, the sling had to survive tens of thousands of cycles in wet, dry and sandy conditions, static load testing without slippage for 72 hours and weighted 6 foot dynamic drop tests. In addition to the controlled lab tests, we also swam it, jumped it, hunted with it, hiked into the mountains with it, and most importantly shot with it in a variety of rugged field conditions


Magpul Now Shipping Rail Light Mount And PMAG 10 LR/SR GEN M3

Thursday, December 5th, 2013


Magpul is now shipping the Rail Light Mount and PMAG 10 LR/SR Gen M3 magazine.

Rail Light Mount


The Rail Light Mount is constructed of reinforced polymer, and includes everything needed to mount SureFire 300 and 600 series Scout lights, 1913 Picatinny attachment pistol lights, and all light bodies from .75″ to 1.03″ in diameter thanks to the included set of anodized aluminum mounting rings. The mount is designed to fit on any standard 1913 Picatinny rail, is available in right or left side models, and integrates with the Magpul XTM panels. Its design positions the weapon light high and cantilevered forward, at the 11 o’clock or 1 o’clock position, to allow for a more forward support hand position, keep the light tucked in close to the bore, and to minimize barrel shadow. A textured thumb ramp is integrated to provide the user an index point, aiding consistent hand placement and light activation.

Made in the USA.

PMAG 10 LR/SR GEN M3 Magazine


The PMAG 10 LR/SR GEN M3 brings GEN M3 technology to the 10-round 7.62×51 NATO/.308 Winchester magazine. Perfect for use with a bipod or when shooting off a pack, hunting applications, and also for States where overall capacity is limited.
