This week, well-known firearms accessory manufacturer Magpul is announcing several of its new products for 2015. So far several products have been unveiled and have become the talk of the gun community.
On Tuesday, the company introduced the PMAG D-60, a 60-round drum magazine for the M4/M16 platform and compatible firearm systems.
“The PMAG D-60. Sixty rounds. Reliable, durable, lightweight, shorter than a 30 rd mag, and full of features that make it extremely easy to use,” stated Magpul on its Facebook page.
Some of those features include its light-weight construction, easy take down design, last-round bold hold open, and round indicator windows. The D-60 is also made from the same reliable polymer as Magpul’s popular 30-round PMAGs.
The company listed its MSRP as $129.95.
