Last night, Magpul’s Facebook exploded with likes and comments when they unveiled its newest edition to the best ever PMAG line—the D60 60-round drum magazine.
The compact, polymer drum magazine is shorter than Magpul’s 30-round PMAGs and is compatible with M4/M16 platforms—including Tavor, H&K and other STANAG rifles that generally don’t like drum mags.
The D60 Magpul drum features a special loading lever that makes putting 60 rounds into it easy and it works with mag loaders. You can track of your round count through the clear rear window and insert it after closing the bolt. Further, the D60 will hold the bolt open after firing the last round. It also disassembles for cleaning.
From Magpul’s Facebook page:
“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. MSRP $129.95. Please note that transparent back and cut-away versions were for testing purposes only, and the solid drum with round indicator window is the variant that will be offered for sale. Shipping Spring/Summer 2015, but you can get a sneak peek of the drum in action at ATAC range day before SHOT show.”
Word has it that the drum will have an MSRP of $129.95 and should start shipping in either the spring or summer of 2015. Magpul says the new drum magazine will be at ATAC range day prior to SHOT Show. We will make sure to get in line to try it out. Look for Cheaper Than Dirt!’s special SHOT Show 2015 coverage January20-23.
