Magpul – Rifleman’s Loop Sling

Friday, May 4th, 2018

Magpul RLS

Building on the heritage and proven performance of Magpul’s MS Sling series, the Magpul RLS (Rifleman Loop Sling) is a durable, lightweight, and affordable shooting aid and retention device. What at first appears to be an unassuming weapon sling is quickly transformed by the end user into a rock-solid, adjustable, isometrically-tensioned shooting aid. Combining the best features of Rhodesian and 1907 match-style slings, the RLS is born of Magpul’s famous proprietary nylon mesh webbing and high-strength polymer hardware.

The American-made Magpul RLS combines legendary Magpul innovation, quality, and design into a simple and effective shooting aid for less money than many slings that merely carry a rifle.

Coming Summer 2018, in Black or Coyote.

2018 Magpul Clothing Redux 

Friday, January 19th, 2018

For 2018, Magpul has completely replaced their entire line of clothing. This new Every Day Clothing line is tighter than previous versions with just four shirts (long and short sleeve) and a pant. A couple of other pieces will follow in the Spring.

The first question everyone asks when they hear about Magpul clothing is, “why?” Magpul’s David Kramer explained it well, “It’s a natural extension of our firearms business, that we would build clothing that our community would be stoked to wear. Clothes that can be used for EDC, travel, road trips, and hard use. We build it to stand up to life.”

I wanted to know more. Why start over from scratch? I was told, “There are a variety of brands offering good options but often missing the mark in the sense of either representing our values, having the right features or even the right look. Many brands speak to a left leaning audience while other brands focus heavily on tactical where there was no one looking at the people who believe the Second Amendment in embedded into their daily lives. We need something for us, so we did something about it.” Granted, Magpul’s goal is to offer a quality apparel at a fair price, but this new take on clothing seems to spring from a deeper passion.

Like their earlier clothing, this is not made in the USA. Not at these prices. But, they are well made, hard wearing and good looking. I’ve seen samples. You’ll find iconic styles, with modern materials. Here’s a sneak peek, to whet your appetite.

Magpul – Multi-Mission Sling System

Thursday, January 18th, 2018

Magpul MS1 QDM Sling

1C3A76EA-4CFF-45FE-9CFC-80487A2D3D21

The Magpul® MS1 QDM Sling further enhances one of the most versatile line of rifle slings by including factory-installed Magpul QDM quick-disconnect swivels. As a heavy-duty replacement for the typical pushbutton swivel, the Magpul QDM offers an innovative low-profile design, single-handed manipulation, a superior corrosion-resistant Melonite® finish, and a high-strength, freely rotating bale that canalizes sling webbing to prevent rollover. This sling system not only provides the strength, speed and security of Magpul QDM hardware, but is also optimized for dedicated two-point sling functionality built around the streamlined MS1 Slider. Once set, this system allows for rapid adjustments to either lengthen or shorten the sling without slippage, tails, loops or other potential snag hazards. In a two-point role, the MS1 allows seamless shoulder transitions, fast adjustability for hands-free rifle carry and shooting support from various positions. The Magpul MS1 QDM Sling retains all of the original MS1 functionality and is fully adaptable for one-point applications with a series of adapters (sold separately) based on the MS3® and MS4® Slings.

A01D0D38-A1A0-4CAF-B161-05BFDA43876F

In testing, the MS1 Sling survived tens of thousands of cycles in wet, dry and sandy conditions, static-load testing without slippage for 72 hours, and weighted six-foot dynamic drop tests. In addition to the controlled lab tests, we also swam with it, jumped with it, hunted with it, hiked into the mountains with it, and—most importantly—shot with it in a variety of rugged field conditions. The Magpul MS1 QDM Sling is made in the U.S.A. and is fully Berry Amendment compliant.

This sling system not only provides the strength, speed and security of Magpul QDM hardware, but also maintains compatibility with the standard QD sling cup interface found on many handguards, lower receivers, receiver end plates and buttstocks.

Magpul Suppressor Cover – 5.5”

Wednesday, January 17th, 2018

F0A3AFF3-F839-40FA-9DEF-D0AA3641D5A4

The Magpul® Suppressor Cover – 5.5” is the first product of its kind able to stand up to the extreme temperatures caused by extended strings of semi-automatic and automatic fire and still protect the user against burns by keeping internal can temperatures at safe levels and cool-off times short. The Magpul® Suppressor Cover – 5.5” is made up of a heat-resistant polymer sleeve overlaid onto a raised stainless steel heat shield that mounts directly to the suppressor body with steel clamps. It minimizes heat transfer to keep external cover temperatures up to 1000 degrees F cooler than the surface of the suppressor by allowing high volumes of cooling airflow across the can, reducing retained heat and the damage it can cause. Our Suppressor Cover withstands USSOCOM suppressor abuse requirements and numerous cycles of suppressor surface temperatures over 1300 degrees F with ease, all while allowing you to sling your rifle without burns or melted clothing. The Magpul Suppressor Cover is also an enhanced thermal insulator and signature reduction device, which significantly mitigates negative visible mirage effects to the shooter’s sight picture, reduces external suppressor body impact damage, and lessens the chance of accidental contact injury or other heat-related damage to personnel or equipment during weapon firing or cool down. Optimized for 1.5” outer diameter round suppressors with a body length of approximately 5.5” (not including attachment hardware/ interface) such as the Surefire SOCOM556-RC2.  Other lengths are in the works and are coming soon.

FEATURES
• Extreme temperature protection that mitigates internal suppressor temperatures to safe levels
• Minimizes retained heat, allowing faster cooling than any other suppressor cover technology
• Reduces thermal signature of host firearm
• Mitigates mirage effects in sight picture
• Two stainless steel clamps provide a strong, rigid and reliable interface capable of sustained firing sessions and rough handling
• High temp polymer sleeve withstands brutal suppressor temperatures during extended periods of firing without deterioration
• High strength corrosion resistant stainless steel heat shield


FITMENT

Fitment for 1.5” outer diameter round suppressors with a body length of approximately 5.5” (not including attachment hardware/ interface) such as the Surefire® SOCOM556-RC2.
