    Magpul stops making gun magazines in Colorado



    BOULDER, Colo. – A Colorado gun accessories manufacturer that vowed to leave the state because of a new gun control law says it is now making some items out-of-state.

    Erie-based Magpul revealed the move in a Facebook posting late Monday in response to a customer question. The posting said PMAG magazines, which can hold 10 to 30 rounds, are being made outside of Colorado for the first time. Sights are also being made elsewhere.

    Boulder's Daily Camera reports that the company plans to reveal more details, including a possible new headquarters location, after the National Rifle Association's annual meeting in Houston this weekend.

    Officials and gun owners in various states, including Wyoming and Alaska, have tried to lure Magpul since Colorado passed a law banning magazines that hold more than 15 rounds.

    Black Blade: Looks like the smart move to me. Now other companies should move - I think APEX is based out of Colorado too - not sure how the new laws affect their import and sales of magazines greater than 15-rounds. A lot of people are cancelling fall elk hunts in the state as well.

    Yeah APEX needs to move as well. There are a lot of gun/related product manufacturers in ban states all over. I don't understand it. IMHO they should all move to Pro 2A states and let their dollars and jobs speak for themselves to the state and federal govt. South Carolina would be proud to have some of these manufacturers move here. We have a fair amount here including FN, and Palmetto State Armory.

    Good for them. A man without principles is not much of a man. Their company has showed their true colors and they are bright red, white, and blue.
