Magpul Shipping Ghost Gray and LR/SR Magazine Accessories

magpul-covefr

Magpul, as most of us know, is well known in for their polymer accessories and magaines.   Now they have announced they are shipping the anticipated Ghost Gray accessories.  Also getting ready to ship in the next week is windowed 25rd LR/SR (7.62×51) magazines, as well as ranger plates and round limiters for the LR/SR magazines.

I am really probably most excited about the LR/SR ranger plates just cause they really help to get magazines out of a mag carrier for reloads.  I happen to have my LR/SR mags on my plate carrier, and having the extra loop to grab is all the better to grab them by.  I have personally been a long time user of ranger plates for my 5.56 mags, and find them to make reloads much easier.  So being able to get them for my LR/SR mags will be a welcome addition.

The round limiters, ranger plates and windowed LR/SR magazines are shipping now according to Magpul’s website, but per their email are not set to ship until May 1.  An email has been sent to Magpul for clarification. Check back for an update.

One product update in fine print at the bottom of their release that could easily be overlooked was that all foliage green accessories will be discontinued as an option, and will be phased out.  Also, all non-black magazines will also be discontinued.  While I have always liked the tan magazines to be able to load them with different rounds to aid in visually knowing what rounds are going into my rifle, while some people like them just to match the rest of your Magpul furniture.  So if you are a fan of one of the non-black colors, get them while you can!

    I love the looks of that stealth grey, feel meh about the ranger tabs, and I’m majorly bumbed out that they are getting rid of colored mags, stupid

  • CTO

    I believe they are referring to the GEN 2 Mags which are still in production as a part of the the MOE Line. If you look at the website, the GEN 2 Mags specifically have MOE in their name while the GEN 3’s do not. This would make sense as they are trying to make the MOE Line the affordable not as specialized line up. Hence no sweet extra colors for the stuff.

    Then again this is just my personal opinion.

      Looks like you are right… So Gen2…aka…MOE magazines will no longer come in different colors, but the Gen3 will.

      • Cymond

        I can’t find any Gen3 in any colors except black, so it looks like this is the end of ALL colored PMAGS. It seems stupid since people probably want their mags to match their furniture.

  • Steve Truffer

    I’m not an AR guy, but the gray may actually make the mags easier to dye to one’s desired color. Or rattle can it. Or just enjoy the gray.

  • BattleshipGrey

    That is disappointing about the discontinuation of colored mags. It actually surprises me considering all the hype about RIT dye projects going on. I figured they’d want to make a white mag and accessories so people could customize their gear more.

      I was actually going to look into doing some of my own RIT stuff and experimenting with it and doing a write-up on how to do it, and such.

      • BattleshipGrey

        That would be sweet. There’s some great resources on ar15.com and I’m sure some youtube vids. I’d do some too but all my plastics are currently black. I’m definitely going to do it in the future though. Have fun. I look forward to the post.

    Now that we’ve all purchased the other color offerings… o_0

    Looks pretty awesome though.

    • http://thefirearmblog.com/blog/ Sam Cadle (Staff Writer, TFB)

      I know right? Now that I have one in OD, Tan and every other color… Now there is another offering. Personally, I would rather see OD stay then getting the grey color. Also of note, the pink line should be coming out soon. It was announced at at the same time as grey in Nov 2013, so we should see pink start shipping soon.

      Will just be yet another color to buy and put onto a rifle, so you can have one in every color.

      • BattleshipGrey

        This is starting to sound like a sugar cereal commercial. “Collect all 6″.

      • Cymond

        The article says that it’s Foliage Green that’s being discontinued, not OD. However, I need to go buy some OD and FDE magazines now … I imagine the folks at A Breon Custom won’t be pleased with the end of FDE magazines.

        OTOH, Midway already had the pink parts a while ago. I was beginning to think the grey was never going to happen.

      • Manimal

        I have had pink Magpul furniture on my m&P 15-22 for a long time, it is already out.

        • http://thefirearmblog.com/blog/ Sam Cadle (Staff Writer, TFB)

          I must have missed the release then. I just have yet to see any for sale, or in the wild. Thanks for correcting me on that.

    Dear Magpul…
    Make. White. Furniture.

  • gunslinger

    i like…
    do they offer a trade in program?

  • Aaron E

    I sure hope that the elimination of the colors is ONLY for the Gen 2 stuff. I’ve really come to appreciate the Foliage Green and FDE colors, and have used both to a great extent. I could understand eliminating them from the Gen 2 stuff, as it is an older model, but it would be a very poor marketing decision to get rid of the colors with the new stuff.
