Magpul Launches M-LOK Attachment System At NRA Annual Meeting

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

Magpul is launching a new attachment system called M-LOK at the NRA Annual Meeting and SSD has the exclusive first look. Remember, you read it here first.


M-LOK, which stands for Modular Lock System, is a free licensed 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. Numerous manufacturers have already agreed to adopt the system, and Geissele Automatics is even displaying a Mk5 rail at the NRA Annual Meeting which features the new technology.
