After leaving Colorado to escape recently enacted magazine size restrictions, it only seems fitting that Magpul would release its highest-capacity AR-15 magazine yet. The PMAG D-60 (shown) is a drum magazine that holds 60 rounds of .223 or 5.56 mm NATO ammunition without being any longer than a standard 30-round box magazine. The reinforced polymer chassis features a ratchet lever for easing loading, it can be quickly disassembled for cleaning, and it can be seated fully loaded into a rifle with it's bolt in the closed position. Suggested retail price for this magazine well is projected to be somewhere around $130. For the Glock fans out there, keep an eye out for the PMAG 17 GL9 pistol magazines for 9 mm G17 Glocks. Light weight with an easily removed base plate, these reinforced polymer magazines are projected to retail for under $16
