Magpul Industries recently announced their latest offering for the SR25/M110 pattern rifles with their new D-50 LR/SR GEN M3 drum magazine for 7.62×51 NATO/ .308 Winchester.
Magpul states “The Magpul PMAG D-50 incorporates proven GEN M3 technology, which includes next-generation impact and crush-resistant polymer construction and the ability to seat fully loaded on a closed bolt. Robust stainless-steel internals withstand corrosion and long-term storage while loaded with no loss of function, spring fatigue, or reliability concerns. A slip-on semi-rigid dust cover prevents grit and debris intrusion during storage and transport.”
The Magpul D-50 drum magazine is extremely light weight, weighing in at approx 1.7 pounds empty and 4.5 pounds full loaded. Thats 50 round capacity of 7.62×51 NATO. A great feature of Magpul’s new D-50 drum magazine is it shares approx the same profile height as a standard 25 round PMAG.
