Magpul recently introduced the new PMAG D-50 MP, which the company says is a highly reliable 50-round drum mag for the HK94/MP5 large-format pistol or pistol-caliber carbines chambered in 9 mm. 

The new PMAG D-50 MP retains many of the other features of Magpul's previous models of 9 mm drums, but the new 50-round drum utilizes a unique configuration that keeps the height of the magazine more manageable, according to Magpul. In turn, prone shooting is an viable option and storage is simplified. The magazine features a ratcheting loading lever that removes tension from the internal spring for ease of use. 

Likewise, the D-50 MP features a rear window to track how many rounds remain, as well as a high-visibility follower and a capacity indication roller. Like other Magpul drum mags, the newest iteration is designed for quick disassembly for maintenance and cleaning. 

Features: 
  • 50-round capacity
  • Next-generation impact and crush-resistant polymer construction
  • Robust stainless internals withstand corrosion and long-term storage while loaded with no loss of function, spring fatigue, or reliability concerns
  • Ratcheting lever for ease of loading
  • Easy disassembly for cleaning and maintenance
  • High-visibility follower and rounds-remaining window
  • Paint Pen Dot Matrix
  • HK94/MP5pattern large-format pistols and pistol caliber carbines
  • Weight (unloaded): 16.4 ounces 
  • Height: 6.9 inches 
  • Width: 4.2 inches 
  • Depth: 2.6 inches 
  • Color: Black 

MSRP on the new PMAG D-50 MP is $119.95; more information can be found on Magpul.com.
