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.
