MAGPUL™ 5.56, 7.62 NATO & 9MM
Military &Law Enforcement Technical Manual
This Manual covers the 5.56 NATO, 7.62 NATO & 9mm/45cal SubgunMagpul™ and their related weapon systems.For consistency the 5.56 NATO Magpul™/US M16 weapon system is used to illustratethe majority of drawings and features. Other weapon systems may require modificationsfor full function.
NOTE:
While some benefit may be derived from just installing and using theMagpul™, tactical employment of the Magpul™ should only be conducted after extensive training.While the Magpul™ is compatible with almost All 5.56/7.62/9mm NATO maga-zines (respectively), its usefulness will depend directly on the type of pouch or tactical vest used. certain ammunition pouches may not function at all with theMagpul™ installed. Again, tactical employment of the Magpul™ should only beconducted after extensive training with the pouch or vest to be employed.

INTRODUCTION TO MAGPUL™
2
The Magpul™ is a thermoplastic rifle magazine loop designed by RichardFitzpatrick, a former U.S. Reconnaissance Marine Sergeant. Through this loopand recessed rough gripping surface, it provides unsurpassed speed and controlduring high stress, tactical magazine changes.Its design allows for quick and easy installation and removal without compromis-ing the grip needed to remain on the magazine changes during tactical scenar-ios.The Magpul™ is based upon the tried and true para-cord loops and duct-tapetabs currently in use worldwide with special warfare unitsThese units discovered that a loop or tab affixed to the base of rifle magazinecould aid dramatically in a successful magazine change under duress.

INTRODUCTION TO MAGPUL™

The duct tape around the base of the magazine also deadened the sound themagazines when stored next to each other in a pouch.While there are many versions of these “quick pulls”, all have significant draw-backs.
1. Duct Tape Tabs
are messy to remove and if left on the maga-zine it tends to wear away leaving a sticky surface which bonds tothe other magazines.In the example shown on page 2, this duct tape tab would have tobe removed, discarded and remade every time the magazine is disassembledfor cleaning.
2. Paracord (550 cord) loops with duct tape
provides a moredurable/efficient quick pull than duct tape tabs. The loop can fold-ed out of the way for disassembly of the magazine but the ducttape still wears and provides a weak hold on the 550 cord.
3. Paracord (550 cord) strung through the floorplate.
This version does notuse duct tape to secure the the paracord to the magazine.Instead it strings a loop of 550 cord through the floorplate of aM16 magazine.The problems with this version is that it not only blocks up thedrainage hole but also has the possibility of pulling off the whole floorplate duringa high stress reload. In addition it requires the most time/skill to install.
Note: The biggest problem in using Paracord (550 cord) is that it often sticksdown onto the magazine after being exposed to adverse elements and that eachlength is a tends to be a different length, hindering reflex training.
