My wife works as an Applications Engineer and used a Focused Ion Beam Scanning Electron Microscope (FIB-SEM) to mill a piece of silicone and draw the Magpul logo. I am a bit of a fan of Magpul. I even have a “Magpul” license plate.

In the photo you can see the View Field. The Magpul text is 40 microns wide which makes that less than the thickness of a human hair.


Here is a different angle.

    I quite impressed with photos, especially the second pic. What equipment was used to enlarge it that much while maintaining sharpness and depth of field?

      …you’re joking right? It’s a scanning electron microscope.

      • Marc

        It’s from an iPhone 6000…….ah doi.

      • D

        No, I know nothing about eletron microscopes. Thx for the info

        • Blake

          I’m not going to act like I know a damn thing about them either, it just says it in the first sentence.

    Does she do work for magpul? is it legal to put their logo on stuff? I mean I get no one can see it but idk.

      Magpul gets free advertising… just like it does on the back of his car.

    • Most companies look the other way as long as it isn’t commercial, and you aren’t claiming to representing them.

      You know you’re more tryhard than tryhard when you openly admit this.

      Say what you want about “trustfund babby” but his content had really good quality, which I think set the standard for all the other TFBTV members.

        I enjoyed his videos. His articles and comments in the comments sections made me want to see videos of him being throat punched

    So is it true that Magpul is now making mags for the famed .9mm semi-automatic? 🙂

    Magpul window stickers. Might as well be a bill board for thieves telling them there’s a high chance to score a gun of they break into your car.

    • James

      I highly doubt that most criminals know about Magpul.

      Hell most gun owners I know do not even know about Magpul.

      • Bob

        I guess the mass marketing through Airsoft and Video Games that Magpul has done in the past means nothing to you.

        More know than you’d think.

  • Doug Simpson

    Some zoomed out pictures to get an idea of how small it really is would have been nice.

      Have you ever heard of “high tech”?

    You both need to get out a little more often, broaden your horizons.
