[VIDEO] Game Changer? Magpul Unveils New 60 Round Drum Magazine – The D60
Did Magpul just change the magazine game again? It certainly looks like it.
In a video released today, Magpul unveiled their new D60 drum magazine. Magpul is known for their highly reliable 30 and 40 round PMags. If they can bring the same reliability to an affordable drum magazine it’s bound to be a huge success.
As its name implies, the drum features 60 rounds of fun. In addition to increased capacity, the drum has some pretty cool features. It seems to break down easily for cleaning, includes a window to estimate remaining round count, and is shorter than a standard 30 round PMag.
Some readers will also be interested to find out that this drum is advertised to work with the IWI Tavar SAR rifles. These rifles are incompatible with many of the current AR-15 drums on the market due to the magwell. Of course they also work with all other STANAG magazine guns.
So what is this thing going to run you? MSRP is listed at $129.99.
Expect these to start shipping in late spring – summer of this year.
I’ll be sure to check these out for you guys at the SHOT Show range day on Monday, so check back for more information.
