On the eve of the largest arms industry expo in the world, Magpul Industries is dropping a second wave of new product announcements before the big week, including rifle accessories, iPhone cases and new Magpul gear for 2015.
The main announcement is the most anticipated: new MOE handguards with M-Lok slots. M-Lok is Magpul’s universal mounting system. Like KeyMod it is a negative space system that’s lightweight and comfortable in the hand.
When Magpul launched M-Lok they offered one in-house M-Lok handguard, the MOE-SL, a carbine-length handguard that extends around the front sight block on AR-15s. The new MOE M-Lok series includes three forends, in carbine, mid and rifle lengths.
The MOE M-Lok handguards maintain the original look and feel of the MOE series parts, replacing the MOE slots with M-Lok slots. These new handguards don’t wrap around the front sight block to accommodate standard sling loops.
The new mid- and rifle-length handguards are priced the same as their MOE predecessors at $34 and $39, respectively. The carbine-length MOE M-Lok runs $5 more than the old MOE handguard at $29 versus $24, but that’s because Magpul recently dropped the prices on their basic MOE kit to make way for the new M-Lok parts.
Along with the handguards Magpul is delivering on some long-awaited products that they’ve already revealed including the 25-round windowed LR/SR magazine for AR-style .308 rifles and a lube bottle grip core for MOE and MIAD pistol grips.
For Apple fans that have been patient, Magpul is also now shipping Field Cases for iPhone 6 Plus smartphones.
These rugged cases have become a must-have phone accessory for people across the country since their inception and the iPhone 6 Plus Field Case is no different.
And last but not least, especially for die-hard Magpul fans, are new hats including Tailgate ball caps and fresh beanie designs.
