Magpul recently released a video promotion for its newest drum magazine, the PMAG D-50 in 7.62×51 NATO/.308 Win. Moreover, the magazine fits popular SR25/M110 pattern rifles. Above all, watch the video through to the end and see the explosive firepower delivered by Magpul’s newest magazine. It’s simply phenomenal in all its 7.62 glory.
Built to handle larger-than-SAMMI-spec match ammunition, up to 2.830-inches overall, the magazine is versatile. Also, the magazine utilizes Magpul’s GEN M3 improvements, equating to enhanced strength, durability and reliability, according to Magpul. The company achieves these improvements by utilizing next-generation impact and crush-resistant polymer construction, according to Magpul.
Spring tension is removed via a ratcheting loading lever, enabling users to load the D-50 by hand. Meanwhile, an anti-glare, translucent window on the drum’s rear provides visual indication of available ammunition, according to Magpul. Stainless steel internals resist corrosion. Better still, the D-50 can be loaded full and still seat on a closed bolt.
Disassembly is achieved via a flat blade screwdriver, while a dot matrix pattern enables easy marking and identification. The D-50 weighs 1.5 pounds unloaded and 4.5 pounds fully loaded.
Magpul designed the D-50 specifically for 7.62×51 NATO/.308 Win. ammunition. However, the company recommends to not load .260 Rem. and 6.5 Creedmoor.
Finally, lightweight and rugged, the Magpul PMAG D-50 seriously brings the thunder with 50 rounds of 7.62 ammunition. With an overall height equal to a 25-round PMAG, shoot any position, including prone, with the D-50.
No word yet on just how soon until the D-50 is available, so stay tuned.
