Magpul Gun Parts and Accessories: An Overview of Their Best Products

Back when I first started hearing the Magpul name, it was almost always associated with the famous PMAG system. Known for their durability and reliability, the PMAG remains the most popular AR mag on the planet. Even the US Military has now adopted them for combat use. But Magpul makes a lot more accessories for guns than just gun magazines. The company makes slings, sights, stocks, gloves, and other gear that are just as durable as their PMAGs.

Some of the best guns out there are often adorned with Magpul products. But it’s easy to overlook these products because of the focus given to the overall firearm they are attached to. I have some type of Magpul product on nearly every rifle I own. In fact, my Savage 110 bolt-action rifle has a Magpul stock, magazine, bipod, and sling. When people see it, however, they don’t realize that more than half of the gun is made up of Magpul products.

If you’re not familiar with the Magpul catalog, I would encourage you to check them out. The company even offers a line of clothing that was co-created by members of the US Special Operations community.

Of course, they make far too many products for me to list them all in one article. So instead, I’m going to list some of their products often overlooked, but are handy nonetheless.

QD M-LOK Sling Mount

One of the smallest and probably most overlooked accessories Magpul makes is the QD M-LOK sling mount. Believe it or not, I’ve had a few other brands break on me or fall off my rifle before. When you are trusting a part to hold your rifle to your sling, it needs to be a quality part. I use QD slings on most of my rifles because it’s so easy to move slings around to different guns. The Magpul QD mount comes with cammed T-nuts and is machined from anodized aluminum.

It also has an anti-rotation feature to prevent the swivel from spinning. I like the M-LOK mount because you can mount it anywhere you want on your rifle. Some like to place it near the muzzle end of their handguard, and others like it closer to the rear of the handguard. It’s easy to install and comes with the needed wrench. Just make sure the back side of the M-LOK bolts are oriented correctly to lock in place.

Magpul AR-15 Magazine Coupler

If you know you’re going to be switching out mags quickly and burning through ammo, a magazine coupler is a lifesaver. It does make your gun weigh more, so it may depend on what you are doing with your rifle if that is an issue. But for home defense, I think it’s a great accessory. You can grab your AR in an emergency and have 60 rounds of ammo ready to go. Because it connects the two magazines, you have an extra mag of ammo just by picking up the gun.

I have never had the coupler cause any feeding issues with my magazines, but make sure not to overturn it. I keep multiple AR mags on my plate carrier, but this coupler is perfect for the one you keep in your rifle. The coupler is molded to fit perfectly on PMAGs, so another brand of magazines may not fit as well.

Bipod for M-LOK

A bipod is really handy to have on a long-range rifle, but it can be helpful with any rifle. I use the Magpul bipod because it is so compact when folded up. The legs lock in place when you flip them down and the center has a swivel which allows you some mobility. One of the best features of Magpul’s bipod is the telescoping legs. Once locked in place, you can extend them from 6.8 inches to 10.3 inches. A quick-release button makes it easy to retract them and fold the bipod up. The bipod is made of anodized 6061 aluminum with injection-molded polymer around it.

MS4 QDM Sling

People often overlook slings. I grew up with the understanding that a sling was the equivalent of a holster for a handgun. A rifle is great for self-defense, hunting, range fun, and other tasks. But without a sling, you’d have to set your rifle down if you need to be hands-free for any reason. With the MS4 sling, you can switch between a single and double-point sling. A metal QD adaptor just before the end of the sling allows one end of the sling to connect to itself.

This makes the loop for your torso with the other end being the single point attachment for your weapon. A quick-adjust handle allows the sling length to be adjusted by sliding it back and forth. Some slings use a loop system for this, which I like, but Magpul’s plastic handle also works great. For the price, this is one of the best slings you can use.

Patrol Gloves 2.0

In addition to their high-quality magazines, slings, stocks, and other accessories for guns, Magpul also makes some of the best shooting gloves on the market, including the Patrol Gloves 2.0. These ultra-comfortable gloves feature a leather palm and stretch nylon top for a snug fit. No one likes a loose-fitting tactical/shooting glove because it gets in the way more than it helps. The Patrol Glove 2.0 also features an elastic band around the wrist instead of a hook-and-loop flap.

This makes them quick to put on and keeps your shirt sleeve or other things from catching on the gloves while you’re shooting. Magpul’s Patrol Glove has a great feel and is snug enough to perform mag changes and work other controls on your weapon. They are a little pricey for a pair of shooting gloves, but I think they are worth it. If you do a lot of shooting, a good pair of gloves helps protect your hands and provide a good grip on the firearm.

SGA Mossberg Stock

Don’t get me wrong, just about all of Magpul’s stocks are excellent products. But the SGA Mossberg stock really stands out to me. I like the ergonomics of the slanted grip and the easily adjustable buttstock. It comes with a sling slot but can also accommodate a QD attachment (sold separately). I put one of these on my Mossberg 500 and have loved it ever since. It can be installed within minutes using a provided screw. Available colors include black, grey, orange, and FDE.

Need some Magpul products?

These are some of my favorite, but less popular, Magpul products. But don’t forget about their popular products like the PMAG, AR-15 pistol grip, adjustable AR-15 stocks, and handguards. They make complete stock systems for bolt action rifles like the Remington 700, Savage 110, and just about every popular brand of shotgun.

In short, Magpul pretty much makes everything but the gun itself. If you haven’t yet looked into Magpul gear, you absolutely should.
