Magpul's PMAG D-50 7.62mm Magazine

Magpul said their new PMAG D-50 drum will hold the equivalent of “731 flying hockey pucks” worth of energy, in the form of 50 7.62x51mm rounds. Alternatively, they say that’s the same as “10 Angry Bobcats, 73 Double Cheeseburgers or 167 Matches,” worth of energy. Whatever, it’s Magpul.

Teased earlier this year, the new mag is essentially a bigger version of their tried-and-true 5.56mm D60 but in a larger caliber.

Weighing in at 1.5-pounds (empty) the D50 is capable of accommodating longer-than-SAAMI-spec match ammunition, up to 2.830-inches OAL, such as military M118LR ball. Optimized for use in SR-25/M110 platforms, the new drum includes a translucent window on the rear to keep tabs on the amount of brass inside. Further, it can be disassembled with a flat blade screwdriver.

Price is  $149 — as well as the extra 4.5-pounds (when loaded) that it adds to your rifle’s fighting weight. Still, it looks fun in the earlier teaser video below, which is all that really matters sometimes.
