Magpul Enhanced Ejection Port Cover

The Magpul Enhanced Ejection Port Cover is a drop-in upgrade designed to improve the overall installation process, add strength and provide corrosion resistance over the standard USGI ejection port cover. Traditional stamped-steel ejection ports can twist, are prone to wear and require tools to install. The Enhanced Ejection Port Cover snaps into place easily without having to remove your handguard or barrel nut, wind any loose springs, or adjust small clips. Constructed of impact-resistant injection molded polymer, it is corrosion resistant and will not bend or deform from impacts. 


  • Durable, injection-molded polymer construction with corrosion-resistant components
  • Installs easily in seconds
  • Will not bend or deform from impacts
  • Direct replacement for USGI ejection port cover
  • Available in black, flat dark earth and OD Green
  • MSRP: $14.95
