Less Money Needed To Move Magpul To Wyoming

Friday, September 12th, 2014

According to a story in the Post Register, Magpul has found a move-in ready building in their new production, distribution and shipping base in Cheyenne, Wyoming that not only meets their long-term needs but also prevents them from having to take up temporary residence until a final home is completed. This move will save the citizens of Wyoming over $4 Million in grant money. The change was recently approved by the Wyoming Business Commission and will be taken up this week by the Wyoming State Loan and Investment Board.

This will result in Wyoming investing $8.3 million in the project, and Cheyenne LEADS, the local economic development organization, will invest $1.1 million to help Magpul move. Operations should be in place by November.

The $8.3 million initially comes as a grant, but under the agreement, Magpul will repay about $3.7 million. Additionally, LEADS will sell the building to Magpul.

Magpul is now shipping the new MOE SL line of firearms furniture. The MOE SL line, which consists of the brand new Carbine Stock, SL Grip, and SL Handguard, Carbine-Length, features sleeker lines and profiles. Additionally, the handguard forend is compatible with Magpul’s M-LOK attachment system which supports both M-LOK and MOE-compatible accessories and parts.


Additionally, Magpul has reduced the MSRP pricing of all carbine stocks, due to the release of the SL line and an increase in efficiency in the production of their stock line.

Magpul M-LOK Adapter Rails

Now shipping from Magpul are two new M-LOK adaptor rails for the AFG-2 and RVG. Molded from polymer, both rails are designed specifically to work exclusively with their respective grips, and offer a lower profile when compared to a standard Picatinny rail for a seamless transition between the different components. All hardware necessary for attachment directly to M-LOK slots on compatible aluminum or polymer hand guards and forends is included. Both the AFG-2 & RVG M-LOK Adapter Rails are available in Black. Made in the USA. – RVG – AFG-2

Magpul – M-LOK Tips

Maximize Your M-LOK Experience

Magpul has released an in-depth document detailing how to get the most out of the M-LOK system. For those who don’t know, M-LOK, which stands for Modular Lock System, is a license-free platform system developed by Magpul that serves as an evolution of the MOE slot system used since 2007. It functions as a method for hard mounting accessories to a negative space mounting point. When compared to MOE, M-LOK features a larger slot, squared sides, and adds the following feature set:

- Direct mount capability
- Cammed T-nut
- Optimized for metal and polymer manufacturing
- Recoil/impact mitigation lugs
- Intermediate spacing option
- Multi-directional mounting
- Backwards MOE compatibility

M-LOK is easy to manufacture, works in polymer and metal equally well, is incredibly strong, and requires no back side of mounting surface access.

SOFIC 2014 – Magpul L-Plate

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014


Occasionally, one of my best finds at a trade show will turn out to be something that has been around for some time. While most of the shooting world has adopted polymer rifle magazines there are still those who are required to use the US GI 30 round mag, such as the Marine Corps. Years ago, Magpul introduced the L-Plate, a low profile base plate that replaces the base plate on the issue mag. It’s made from Santorene over molded onto a steel plate. Unlike the Ranger Plate, the L-Plate has a much lower, streamlined shape that is easy to grab and has channels for cordage if you use that to aid in pulling them from mags or the old-school carabiner storage for empties. The L-Plate also serves as a bumber to help lengthen the life cycle of the mag.


I think that the L-Plate is a great after market upgrade for US GI 30 round mags. Sold in packs of 3. Check it out.
