Here's the photo that accompanied the original post, shared yesterday on the Magpul Facebook page.......and here's the text:
With the upcoming ban on standard-capacity magazines in our home state of Colorado and the seemingly never-ending assault on freedoms nationwide, we are releasing a short-run quantity of limited edition PMAGs. Proceeds from the sales of these PMAGs will go towards the legal battle against recent unconstitutional firearms legislation in Colorado and other firearms rights efforts nationwide in which Magpul is involved.Also included are links to the "Free Colorado" and "Boulder Airlift" pages on the company site. Five-packs of both magazine models are listed at $64.75. The descriptions of each begin with this:
Identical in function to the GEN M2 MOE PMAG, these magazines feature our 10th Anniversary Logo on one side and either "Free Colorado" or "Boulder Airlift" on the other.
Now available direct from our store while supplies last. Only available in packs of 5.
With the upcoming ban on standard-capacity magazines in our home state of Colorado and the seemingly never ending assault on Citizens' freedoms nationwide, we are releasing a short-run quantity of these limited edition PMAGs. Proceeds from the sales of these PMAGs will go towards the legal battle against recent unconstitutional firearms legislation in CO and other firearms rights efforts nationwide in which Magpul is involvedThe magazines feature a "skull-and-crossbones" logo that originally commemorated Magpul's tenth anniversary in 2009. However, the date now reads 1999-2013 "to denote the time that Magpul existed in a free Colorado," the text maintains. Here's a closer look at that logo: As for the "Free Colorado" logo, the page's author notes that it "was created during our legislative fight against these laws, and will be prominently featured during the legal fight to come." Here's a better look.... ...as well as another view of the "Boulder Airlift" logo, featuring a "design used for our program to ensure that CO residents could receive PMAGs before July 1, 2013, when CO officially becomes occupied territory:" These assorted deals were definitely appreciated by Magpul's customers. Last night, the following Facebook post was shared:
Well...that was quick. We are currently sold out of both versions of the magazine. We will fit in another run as soon as we can do so without affecting other production and post when we are ready to go again. Thanks for your support--These magazines will directly help our continuing efforts to reverse the CO legislation, and the intent is that we will get a decision that will help matters in other states with similar infringements. We remain dedicated to the legal and political struggles that can and will make a difference in defending or restoring individual liberties in CO and across the nation, despite the fact that our ongoing relocation efforts are demanding a significant portion of our attention.Relocation efforts? Yep, Magpul previously announced that it plans to move to another state due to the recently passed gun-control laws here. To that end, a May Facebook post notes that Magpul reps have been meeting with officials in what they see as more gun-friendly states, "including the Governor of Texas and his staff."
