Magpul Launches AKA KOA Apparel Line

Wednesday, April 26th, 2017

To give back to the Recon community in an homage to Magpul’s history, we designed the AKA KOA line of apparel. AKA KOA is the nickname given to Alpha Company 3rd Recon Bn (USMC Hawaii) by its Commanding Officer, Kent Bradford, in the late 1980s. Loosely translated, it means “Shadow Warrior” in Hawaiian. While it was intended to symbolize the military capability of the unit, it fast became the call sign for Alpha Company’s other skill set, making the most of the Hawaiian island lifestyle during the off hours.

Magpul Releases Highly Anticipated USMC Issue PMAG 30 AR/M4 GEN M3 In Medium Coyote Tan For Commercial Sale

Friday, April 21st, 2017

Engineered to combine the unmatched performance of the PMAG 30 AR/M4 GEN M3 Window and the desired color for the U.S. Army’s Small Arms Weapons Neutral signature reduction program. The Medium Coyote Tan (MCT) PMAG carries forward all of the prior GEN M3 innovations to include our next-generation impact and crush resistant polymer, aggressive front and rear texture, an easily removable slim floor plate, a paint pen dot matrix for marking and identification, and a dust/impact cover as well as the Maglevel window to indicate capacity at a glance. The MCT mag utilizes a newly developed proprietary molding process to allow for desired colors while maintaining the absolute strength and performance of the black and sand materials previously available.

Magpul has released their Hula Girl T-shirt in Men’s and Women’s styles.

A few years ago while outfitting the dashboard of our Volkswagen Bus, we decided to do what we do best. We took something awesome and made It better, which is how the Magpul Hula Girl was born. These shirts are inspired by Magpul’s take on the classic Hula Girl dash ornament. She’s packin’ heat and ridin’ dirty.

Magpul Developed a 60-Round Quad Magazine

Thursday, April 6th, 2017


Quad Mag Prototype, 60-Round Capacity 2009

Shortly after the introduction of the original PMAG, Magpul began working on increased capacity solutions. The “Quad” or “Coffin” mag concept never delivered the reliability in rough handling and adverse conditions that they require from their magazine products, and so the design never made it into production. Lessons learned during this program eventually fed into the D-60 program.

USSOCOM Selects M-Lok For Weapon Programs

Friday, March 31st, 2017

IMG_0651

While we’ve heard rumors of a USSOCOM directed study by NSWC-Crane of weapon accessory attachment systems, we only recently came into possession of evidence of that study, conducted in 2016. We present to you the summary of the report, as it offers the most pertinent facts. However, we are not offering up the rest of the report, as it contains proprietary information regarding the Magpul M-Lok attachment as well as other, competing systems.

IMG_0652

The summary states:

SUMMARY

Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division (NSWC Crane) conducted testing for the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) to evaluate modular rail systems and provide a recommendation based on the performance characteristics of each system. Modular rail systems were evaluated for repeatability, endurance, rough handling, drop testing, and static failure load. Where possible, handguards manufactured in different modular rail systems, but otherwise identical, were used as a basis for a comparative analysis. All tested modular rail systems showed to be adequate for securing accessories during cyclic loading through endurance and rough handling testing. However, distinct performance differences were observed from repeatability, drop test, and failure load analysis. Overall, test and evaluation demonstrated that the M-LOKTM modular rail system surpassed the performance results achieved by other modular rail systems. In repeatability testing, M-LOKTM allowed for the repeated installation of the same accessory rail in the same location on a handguard with an average point of aim (POA) shift of 1.3 MOA, as low as one quarter the average POA shift observed by other modular rail systems. Drop test results demonstrated that M-LOKTM systems maintain securement of accessories to the handguard and sustain less damage from impact forces than some other modular rail systems. Failure load testing demonstrated that M-LOKTM systems support the highest load of all modular rail systems tested. In fact, the test equipment used to interface with 1913 accessory rails secured with the respective modular rail system across testing repeatedly failed prior to failure of the M-LOKTM attachment system. Even so, testing of the M-LOKTM systems failed at loads as high as over three times the maximum failure load of some other modular rail systems. NSWC Crane recommended to USSOCOM that the M-LOKTM modular rail system be utilized over the alternative systems tested. USSOCOM has chosen to incorporate the M-LOKTM modular rail system in acquisition efforts including the Suppressed Upper Receiver Group (SURG) and Advanced Sniper Rifle (ASR).

Of additional note, the US Army directed H&K to integrate an M-LOK rail (designed by Geissele) on the new Compact Semi-Automatic Sniper System rifle which is an indication of wider Dod adoption of M-Lok.
