Few accessories get shooters’ blood pumping quite like a drum magazine. And in recent years, Magpul has established itself as a leader in drum mag technology. Now the Magpul PMAG D-50 GL9 is about to set the PCC world on fire.
Magpul PMAG D-50 Lauches for Glock, HK Firearms
We’ve seen this one play out before. First, Magpul hit an immediate home run with the D-60 for 5.56 semi-autos. It followed that up with the first D-50, putting 50 rounds of .308 into a reliable drum. Then last year Mapgul released the D-50 EV9, harnessing 50 rounds of 9mm for the CZ Scorpion. As awesome as that feat proved to be, fans immediately clamored for a Glock-pattern drum magazine.
Well shooters get that and more, with two variants of the new D-50, the GL9 and MP. The GL9 fits Glock-pattern handguns while the MP accommodates HK94/MP5 large-format pistols and pistol caliber carbines.
Each drum magazine includes features made famous by previous drums. The magazines provide 50-round capacity in a unique drum configuration that keeps the height of the mag manageable, according to Magpul. An included ratcheting loading lever removes tension to help ease loading pains.
A rounds-remaining rear window helps shooters see the round stack. Meanwhile, a high-visibility follower and capacity indication helps keep track of rounds remaining.
The magazine disassembles for cleaning. An innovative bolt hold-open feature holds the bolt back when using the GL9 in firearms designed to lock back on Glock-pattern magazine followers.
Both new PMAG D-50 magazines retail for $119.95. For even more info, please visit magpul.com.
