Magpul recently made a powerful political statement by pulling up stakes in its home state of Colorado to escape recently enacted restrictions to firearm magazine capacity. It only seems fitting that the company would follow that move with the release of its highest-capacity AR-15 magazine yet. The PMAG D-60 is a drum magazine that holds 60 rounds of .223 Rem. or 5.56x45 mm NATO ammunition without being any longer than a standard 30-round box magazine. The reinforced polymer chassis features a ratchet lever for easy loading and a window to check the number of rounds inside. Removable supports set around the exterior can be detached to allow the magazine to be quickly disassembled for cleaning. The D-60 can be seated fully-loaded into a rifle with its bolt in the closed position, and is compatible with a wide range of NATO firearms including the M4, M16 and HK416. magpul.com
