Weapon Capability Gaps Closed by Magpul and OfficerStore.com
OfficerStore.com, the leading source of gear for law enforcement professionals, proudly announces the addition of Magpul firearm accessories – equipment built for real-world missions. Magpul back-up sights, high-capacity magazines, stocks, and grips are performance-based solutions that combine functionality and styling, for easy integration onto any AR15/M16 firearm.
COATESVILLE, Pa. - OfficerStore.com understands that mission-driven designs add to safety and success. Magpul high-capacity magazines, stocks, grips, and back-up sights are solutions created to meet stringent, performance-based requirements. These products tie functionality and ergonomic considerations together with seamless integration.
High-capacity PMAG magazines are lightweight 5.56 x 45 NATO/.223 Remington 20- and 30-round polymer magazines with or without a window for the AR15/M16 platform. New features and advanced characteristics optimize durability, compatibility, and overall performance for the most demanding users. Combining years of high-volume PMAG production, and vital feedback from a broad range of users, PMAG magazines push the envelope of performance one step further. Extensive research and development of materials and manufacturing processes ensures that PMAG magazines stand up, so you don’t become let down.
With a lasting, corrosion-resistant stainless steel spring, four-way anti-tilt follower, and constant-curve internal geometry for reliable feeding, the PMAG is reliable in almost any operational environment. Low-profile ribs and an aggressive front and rear texture provides positive control of the magazine. Combined with these design features, the pop-off impact/dust cover helps ensure compatibility with common double and triple magazine pouches. Easy to disassemble, the standard flared floorplate provides drop protection and aids extraction from magazine pouches.
Modified internal and external geometry provides greater compatibility and function with a wide range of non-AR15/M16 platform weapons. A re-designed bolt catch notch in the rear of the magazine gives increased bolt catch clearance. The over-travel stop on the spine helps ensure the PMAG doesn’t over-insert on compatible weapons including the AR15/M16, HK® 416, M27 IAR, British SA-80, FN® SCAR™ MK 16/16S and others.
PMAG magazines also incorporate new material technology and manufacturing processes that have been engineered to exceed rigorous military performance specifications. By improving strength and durability in critical areas, PMAG products have increased overall reliability and lifespan with a decreased total lifecycle cost.
Magpul Original Equipment (MOE) products are also available through OfficerStore.com. MOE grips, and kits are low-cost, high-quality alternatives to standard weapon components. Simplified features meld with Magpul engineering and quality standards for durable, flexible accessories.
Popular MOE drop-in replacement stocks are available for AR15/M16 rifles. Cost-effective packages, these stocks feature a rubber butt-pad and shielded operation lever. Utilizing a strong A-frame design, reinforced polymer construction, and streamlined exterior they are designed for light, fast action.
The MOE Carbine Stock Mil-Spec Model is compatible with military-specification sized receiver extension tubes. The Mil-Spec Model also includes a standard 0.30" rubber butt-pad which provides positive shoulder purchase to prevent slippage even with body armor or modular gear.
The MOE Carbine Stock Commercial Model is compatible with commercial-specification sized receiver extension tubes. The Commercial-Spec Model features an extended 0.55" rubber butt-pad to provide positive shoulder purchase. It also accommodates the longer, slanted back common to most commercial-spec tubes.
The MIAD (MIssion ADaptable) Basic Grip Kit is a drop-in replacement for the standard AR15/M16 pistol grip designed to improve weapon ergonomics. Interchangeable front and back straps, as well as a range of storage core options allow the user to adjust the grip for hand size and dynamic mission requirements. The MIAD comes with three back straps, two front straps, a grip plug, screws, and retaining pin. All mounting hardware is included. Other grips available include the MOE Grip for AR15/M-16 or M4, and the MOE + Rubber Pistol Grip. All of these come in Black, Dark Earth, Foliage Green, or OD Green.
The MBUS (Magpul Back-Up Sights) are low-cost, color-injection molded, folding back-up sights. They fit all mil-spec 1913 Picatinny rail-equipped weapons, but are specifically tailored to the AR15/M16 platform. When lying flat, the Gen2 sights sit lower than the Gen1 for less interference with some optics. Overall length is nearly the same as the Gen1. Both the front and rear back-up sights are available in Dark Earth, Foliage Green and OD Green. All mounting hardware is included.
The Gen2 MBUS Front Back-Up Sight is adjustable for elevation and features a built-in spring-loaded front sight post detent. The dual-aperture Gen2 MBUS Rear Back-Up Sight is adjustable for windage.
