With just two weeks to go before sales of high capacity magazines will be illegal in Colorado, Magpul Industries released a 40-round version of its popular PMAG magazine, offering a limited supply to Colorado customers hoping to beat the deadline.
“[T]he PMAG 40 provides 10 more rounds of capacity before requiring a reload — which could be a lifesaving difference,” the company wrote on its Facebook page. “This new ‘safe capacity’ offering is ideally suited for those who may need to respond to multiple threats without extra rifle magazines carried on their person, or for military members looking for an extra margin of safety in high-tempo operations.”
In the comments section, Magpul, which is located in Boulder County, reiterated its intention to move out of Colorado in response to several new gun control laws, including the ban on magazines that hold more than 15 rounds. The new laws go into effect on July 1.
