Magpul PMAG Quad Stack… It Just Wasn’t Meant to Be

Magpul has been profiling various important magazines that have shaped the development of the PMAG on their Facebook page as part of the recognition of the venerable polymer magazine’s 10th year in production. Today, they showed a picture of their Quad Stack prototype magazine that is sure to make shooter’s hearts race just a little.

Those of you who have been following PMAGs from the start will know that this quad stack mag was no secret and many had their fingers crossed that Magpul would be able to figure out how to bring it to market. The caption posted with today’s picture may be the final nail in the coffin for those of you still holding out hope for a Quad Stack PMAG – at least we have the D60!

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 we require from our magazine products, and so the design never made it into production. Lessons learned during this program eventually fed into the D-60 program. #MAGPUL #PMAG10YEARS #MAGMONDAY #PMAG

Now Shipping – Magpul Zhukov-U Hand Guard for AK47/AK74

Magpul is now shipping the Zhukov-U Hand Guard. It’s the same Zhukov Hand Guard you love but 1.5″ shorter.

The Zhukov-U Hand Guard shaves off 1.5” from the original Zhukov AK Hand Guard to accommodate shorter barreled rifles and pistols, and keeps the front end of full length rifles a little more lively. The shorter version also allows us to accommodate the military issue cleaning rods, so you don’t have to give that up to get the benefits of the Zhukov anymore! The Zhukov-U shares the same type of sturdy aluminum chassis as the longer standard Zhukov for strength and heat mitigation sheathed in a comfortable, injection molded exterior for superior ergonomics. The Zhukov-U includes M-LOK slots for accessory attachment, and is fully compatible with the UltiMAK gas tube rail. Installation requires removing handguard retainer.

Shipping early 2017 – X-22 Backpacker Stock and Optic Mount

It’s that time of year again. SHOT Show is looming so we know we can start looking forward to a wave of new product announcements from Magpul. One of the first is the X-22 Backpacker Stock and Optic Mount. The Ruger 10/22 Takedown has been on the market for several years now but Magpul may have just helped it realize its full potential as a compact, lightweight backpacking/survival .22 rifle.

X-22 Backpacker Stock

The Magpul X-22 Backpacker stock takes the function of our full-size Hunter X-22 Takedown, and pares it down for ease of storage and transportation. Made for the Ruger 10/22 Takedown rifle, the X-22 Backpacker offers a minimalist solution for the hunter or outdoorsman who wants to transport their rifle in an efficient, convenient package without compromising shooting performance. Constructed of a durable advanced polymer, the X-22 Backpacker features an ergonomic hand guard, optional QD sling mounting capability, integrated storage compartment in the grip, a hinged storage compartment in the stock capable of storing up to 3 spare 10rd magazines, a MOE SL nonslip rubber butt-pad, and a unique locking interface to attach the barrel assembly to the receiver when being transported. Fits all Ruger 10/22 Takedown rifles as well as the Tactical Solutions SBX barrel. (MAG808, MSRP $109.95)

X-22 Backpacker Optic Mount

The X-22 Backpacker Optic Mount is a solid, repeatable optic mounting platform for the Backpacker Stock. (MAG799, MSRP $59.95)

  • Barrel mounted aluminum optic rail for Ruger 10/22 takedown
  • Barrel mounting helps retain zero between takedown and assembly
  • Replaces factory takedown barrel block
  • Relief in rail allows use of factory iron sights
  • Intended for use with small red dot sights

Magpul Releases MOE SL-S Stock

The MOE SL-S Stock is the latest stock in Magpul’s MOE-SL line. It retains the narrow design of the rest of MOE-SL line but adds a more triangular cross-section for an improved check weld and battery storage. You can check it out at Magpul.com.

The video that Magpul produced for this stock is excellent. I mean, they are always excellent, but this one is a step above. It dives into the design and history of the triangular cross-section stocks before sharing the features of their new MOE SL-S. It is well worth just over a minute of your time.

New from Magpul: M-LOK GI Sling Swivel

The new M-LOK GI Sling Swivel from Magpul is, as the name implies, M-LOK compatible so you can attach it to any compatible mounting surface like free float rails and MOE Hand Guards. However, it is really going to excel on Magpul’s rifle stocks like the Hunter 700 and X-22 stocks. These would be perfect for those who want to use a shooting sling in conjunction with these stocks.

It bears an obvious resemblance to the GI style swivel loops that everyone removes from their AR-15 gas blocks these days to make room for free float hand guards. These large coated steel loop is the the ideal fixed mounting point for shooting slings that will exert a lot of tension on your sling mount when pulled tight.

Coming Soon – Magpul Gen M3 PMAG in MCT

2017 will mark 10 years since the AR-15 magazine gods handed the PMAG down to us from Mount Magpul. In that time, it has gone through several revisions and been offered in a number of different varieties, all of which have consistently proven that “plastic” magazines are here to stay.

Magpul will release the latest version of the venerable polymer AR-15 magazine in the form of the PMAG Gen M3 in MCT (Medium Coyote Tan). The new magazine has all the same features as the Black and Sand Gen M3 magazines but with a new formulation of polymer that gives the MCT color and is just as strong as the Black polymer.

These magazines are already in production and will begin shipping for commercial sales in early 2017.

Magpul Senatus Populusque Magpulus T-Shirt

Some people scoff at the idea of Magpul being in the apparel business. I happen to think they are killing it, especially when it comes to t-shirts!

The new SPQM or Senatus Populusque Magpulus t-shirt riffs on the Latin phrase “Senatus Populusque Romanus” meaning “The People of Rome”.  So, if you consider yourself one of “The People of Magpul”, pick up this shirt at Magpul.com.
