    The Magpul booth is always fun.

    The big news this year is the X-22 Backpacker:

    Then I realized these were built by Tactical Solutions, which means very high quality but probably out of my price range.

    I mentioned this to a salesperson and he pointed out that the furniture fits any 10/22, and has an MSRP of $110. I thought that was pretty sexy.

    A .300 Blackout specific magazine is now available, which Magpul claims offers better reliability:

    Aaaaand, now they're making 27 round Glock magazines in 9mm (the 27GL9). Nope, I couldn't talk them into changing the production schedule to make .45 ACP magazines either:

    (Yeah, I missed focus. It's not the only one.)

    AK-74 magazines should be arriving around April:

    And, the MCT Window Magazine has now been approved by the Marines:

    As nice as the Hunter looks,The Back Packer makes sense for a minimalist stock set for the takedown.
    Looking forward to it's release
