and you can too…
In addition to the new stock for the Remington 700 short action, Magpul also introduced a box magazine retrofit kit that fits their stock as well as OEM stocks.
It’s a simple swap. You remove the factory bottom metal insert and replace it with this kit. Designed to work with AICS pattern, short action magazines. This kit also includes the new Magpul PMAG 5 AC which just happens to be Magpul’s new polymer, Accuracy International pattern mag.
With the advent of the M3 magazine, Magpul decided to give you any color of magazine you wanted, as long as it was Black. Since then, they’ve been working on their materials and with this new Sand color, they are introducing a new material solution that will hold up to the rigors of use with firearms. Not only is it stronger than the current Black material but it can also be dyed to other colors or even distinctive designs and camouflage patterns.
SINCE THE INTRODUCTION OF THE GEN M3 LINE OF PMAGS, THERE HAS BEEN A RECURRING THEME IN REQUESTS FROM OUR CUSTOMERS, AND THAT HAS BEEN A CALL FOR COLOR OPTIONS. UNTIL NOW, THE GEN M3 LINE HAS BEEN MANUFACTURED ONLY IN BLACK. WE’VE BEEN QUIETLY WORKING BEHIND THE SCENES ON SOME THINGS, AND WE’RE FINALLY READY TO SHARE ONE OF THOSE WITH THE WORLD.
We’re introducing a new color to our line. This color, officially named “Sand”, is as much an overall material development as it is a color development. “Sand” is a light, “non-black” color that closely matches some of the lighter tones in popular military camouflage patterns as well as many environments on the current battlefield. In addition to being less significant in the IR spectrum and ideal for many desert environments, this new material has several other meaningful benefits.
This new Sand colored material shares many of the properties and components of our latest black material. Endurance, reliability, chemical resistance, stability, and other parameters are exactly the same. The main difference, due to some proprietary developments in composition, is strength. The GEN M3 AR/M4 PMAG is extremely resilient in black. However, as tough as our basic black material is, the Sand material is even stronger. We’ve seen very significant increases in feed lip drop and other rough handling tests from -60F to 180F—to an extent that it made our initial results hard to believe. Similar proportional increases in the other magazines in our line have been seen in our testing. With this increase in drop strength, we still see the resiliency that makes the PMAG what it is—Feed geometry does not change, unlike metal or softer polymer magazines—and so reliable feeding is not affected by this punishment.
In addition to its physical properties, the color of the Sand material was chosen for another reason. It serves as a perfect foundation for water-based dye processes to change the color of the material or add camouflage patterns without adding surface thickness or scratching off with use. You can see some of the results of a few minutes with common RIT dye and cellophane wrap in the inset photo. If paint is the desired method of camouflage, “Sand” forms a great basis for this also. Dyed magazines can serve as the base for additional paint pattern options.
Expect to see the new “Sand” material making its way through our magazine line very quickly. We’ll have some video tutorials about using dye and paint to change the appearance of this material coming soon.
Check out this new magazine color as well as the entire line of Magpul products on their newly updated website.

The PMAG D-60. Sixty rounds. Reliable, durable, lightweight, shorter than a 30 rd mag, and full of features that make it extremely easy to use. MSRP $129.95. Please note that transparent back and cut-away versions were for testing purposes only, and the solid drum with round indicator window is the variant that will be offered for sale. Shipping Spring/Summer 2015, but you can get a sneak peak of the drum in action at ATAC range day before SHOT show.
The MBUS Pro LR offers many similarities to the existing MBUS Pro Rear, however it includes a tool-less elevation adjustment wheel to the sight arm. This wheel utilizes positive detents for 200-600 meter ranges in 50 meter increments.
The M-LOK Paraclip Sling Mount is the M-LOK compatible variant of the older MSA – MOE Sling Attachment. It’s made of Melonite-treated steel for resistance to wear and corrosion, and utilizes two M-LOK T-Nuts for a solid mount to M-LOK handguards and forends. Designed for use with clip style sling attachments such as the Magpul Paraclip.
The QDM Quick Disconnect Sling Swivel is Magpul’s take on the common push-button QD swivel. Made from Melonite-treated steel, the QDM is, according to Magpul, stronger than its contemporaries and offers improved corrosion and wear resistance. The dual side release tabs are designed to be easier to use than the traditional top-button design while still being secure against inadvertent activation. This also gives the QDM body a shorter length for better clearances when used with end-plate mounts.
All three of these products will begin shipping the week of SHOT Show.
Magpul has announced the release of new firearms parts and accessories for late 2014, which will begin shipping starting today.
MOE M-LOK Handguards are drop-in replacements for standard AR-15 plastic hand guards. Manufactured from reinforced polymer, the MOE Handguards are designed for both piston and DI gas systems, with a front extension which provides additional grip length and shields the user from a hot front sight assembly. M-LOK slots at the 2, 6, and 10 o’clock positions allow for the mounting of rail sections and M-LOK compatible accessories. Available in rifle, mid-length, or carbine-length models.
The PMAG 25 M118 LR/SR GEN M3 Window is a 25-round .308 Winchester PMAG which is compatible with M118 LR and other match ammo under 2.830″ in length. It still features the same 25-round capacity, constant-curve body, anti-tilt follower, snap on impact/dust cover, and transparent windows as the standard variant, however The M118 LR/SR GEN 3 Window features a red follower to differentiate itself from the standard PMAG 25 LR/SR.
An addition to Magpul’s line of grip cores, the Grip Core Lube Bottle holds an included 1/2 oz. reusable lubrication bottle. Designed to work with the MIAD Gen 1.1, MOE, MOE+, MOE K2, MOE K2+, MOE-AK, and MOE-AK+ grips.
The M-LOK Offset Light Mount, Polymer is an ambidextrous platform which allows users to mount a weapons light at either the 11 or 1 o’clock position on M-LOK compatible handguards. Constructed of polymer, the mount features beveled ends and corners to prevent snagging, and allows for the direct attachment of the SureFire M300/600 Series Scout Light or other 1913 Picatinny mounts. It is also compatible with the Magpul Light Mount V-Block and Rings which allows for the attachment of hand held lights with a diameter of .75″ to 1.03″.
