The new Magpul PMAG D-50 is a lightweight 50-round polymer drum magazine designed for 7.62x51 mm NATO/.308 Win. ammunition for SR25/M110 pattern rifles. It’s capable of using longer-than-SAAMI-spec match ammunition, up to 2.830” OAL, such as M118LR.
In addition, the D-50 brings GEN M3 features. A ratcheting loading lever removes spring tension, making the D-50 more easily loadable by hand. An anti-glare translucent window on the rear of the drum makes for quick positive visual indication of remaining ammunition. Additionally, the D-50 can be disassembled quickly with a simple flat blade screwdriver, and has a dot matrix pattern that allows for easy marking and identification.
At approximately 1.5 lbs. empty, and 4.5 lbs. loaded, the Magpul D-50 is one of the lightest 50-round 7.62x51 mm NATO/.308 Win. drums available. Designed specifically for 7.62x51 mm NATO/.308 Win. ammunition, use with other calibers such as .260 Rem. or 6.5 mm Creedmoor is not recommended.
