    Magpul Industries has long been known for manufacturing superior rifle (and now pistol) magazines, as well as improved stocks for ARs. The company is now expanding into more traditional rifle stocks and is taking them to new levels. I was recently sent a Magpul “Hunter” stock for the Remington 700 series rifles to test. Now, admittedly, I’m not much of a hunter. I choose to spend my shooting time a bit more tactically, but with that said, I really do like this stock. The version I received was in basic black, but other available colors include flat dark earth, stealth...
  • Magpul announces GL9 Glock 17 PMAG

    Go ahead and read that headline again. Yes, Magpul is making a magazine for the worlds most reliable pistol, the Glock 17. Cryptically titled the PMAG 17 GL9, this polymer replacement for the standard Glock 17 magazine appears to match the originals reliability to a tee. It differs from the original with the inclusion of a stippled baseplate and bright orange follower, the former is to aid in magazine retention during reloads. One detail that appears to be missing is whether the magazines feature metal feed lips or a metal skeleton like factory magazines. If this magazine were made by...

    Thanks to the gun control blitzkrieg led by Democratic lawmakers last year, Colorado is about to take a hit in the wallet in the midst of an already anemic economy, and lose hundreds of private-sector jobs at a time when they can least afford it.

    DENVER Democrats came under heavy criticism Friday for driving Magpul Industries out of Colorado by pushing an aggressive gun-control agenda, a move that could cost the state more than $80 million annually. Republican state Rep. Lori Saine said she was saddened to see this completely partisan law, widely considered unenforceable by sheriffs across Colorado, cause Magpul to leave our state. The magazine ban did not garner one Republican vote in the House or Senate, and now as a result of this one-sided, Democrat-sponsored law, more than 200 people will lose their jobs and their ability to provide for their...

The Erie-based ammunition magazine manufacturer said on Thursday that it is relocating its operations to Cheyenne and Texas. "Moving operations to states that support our culture of individual liberties nad personal responsibility is important," CEO Richard Fitzpatrick said in a press release.

    Washington DC - -( Industries donated 20,000 so called high capacity magazines to a June 29 2013 gun rights rally in Glendale, CO, for the purpose of raising money for the recall of state Sens. John Morse and Angela Girontwo Democrats who both supported the gun control measures that become law on July 1 2013. The Denver Post reported that the rally was sponsored by Free Colorado, a nonprofit group that advocates for firearms rights. Denver-based Magpul makes 30-round magazines for AR-15 rifles, and the company made news in early March by promising to take its$85 million in annual profit...

    With just two weeks to go before sales of high capacity magazines will be illegal in Colorado, Magpul Industries released a 40-round version of its popular PMAG magazine, offering a limited supply to Colorado customers hoping to beat the deadline. [T]he PMAG 40 provides 10 more rounds of capacity before requiring a reload which could be a lifesaving difference, the company wrote on its Facebook page. This new safe capacity offering is ideally suited for those who may need to respond to multiple threats without extra rifle magazines carried on their person, or for military members looking for an...

    Magpul Industries, the Erie-based ammunition magazine maker that pledged to leave Colorado after gun control legislation was signed into law in March, is for the first time manufacturing its weapons accessories out of state. The company revealed the news in a Facebook reply late Monday night to a customer who expressed frustration with the lack of information about where Magpul planned to move its operations. You have lots of people interested in this, might as well satisfy the masses and come out with it already, Daniel Wooldridge wrote. This morning, the company provided a little more detail about what it...

    Gov. Rick Perry speaks wistfully almost lovingly about a rifle he recently fired while he was at a range in Leander owned by the manufacturer LaRue Tactical. Im incredibly passionate about a well-made piece of equipment, Mr. Perry said in a phone interview last week, whether its an automobile or a weapon. After the visit, LaRue posted Mr. Perrys results online. From 100 yards away, the governor took three shots and grouped them two shots hit the same spot mere millimeters from the center of the target. That was pretty good, wasnt it? Mr. Perry said,...

    Activity at Magpul, the largest manufacturer of ammunition magazines in Colorado, appeared about as normal Wednesday morning, March 20, as it probably does most mornings. But that industrious calm likely will change soon, after Gov. John Hickenlooper signed into law this morning a series of gun control measures - most notably HB 1224, which limits ammunition magazines to 15 rounds or less. -snip Magpul declined repeated requests for comment this morning, but posted on its Facebook page that its move out of state will start "almost immediately" after HB 1224 becomes law and that "we will prioritize moving magazine manufacturing...

    Magpul Industries has adamantly opposed Colorado House Bill 1224 because it will not enhance public safety and will only restrict law abiding citizens from protecting their homes and families. Magpul strongly believes that Governor Hickenlooper should veto HB 1224 based on these policy grounds. Recent reports also demonstrate that House Bill 1224 has a much broader scope than supporters intended or disclosed, as was argued on the Senate floor. Magpul retained the law firm of Holland & Hart LLP to review the scope of HB 1224s regulations. The results were striking. The report made the following conclusions: 1) HB 1224...
