Gear New Glock Drum Mag: The Magpul D50 GL9 Forrest Cooper January 13, 2021 1 Comments, Join the Conversation For those searching for a Glock Drum Mag, and are familiar with the reliability of the D50 and D60 series of drum magazines, new for 2021 is the Magpul D50 GL9. Distinct from the Magpul D50 GL9-PCC, the D50 GL9 prioritizes and reinforces sections particular to Glock-esque Frames. Read more on the New Glock Drum Mag, the Magpul D50 GL9: Lightweight but incredibly strong, our PMAG D50 GL9 is a highly reliable, 9x19mm Parabellum, 50-round drum magazine optimized for double-stack 9mm GLOCK handguns. The PMAG D-50 GL9 boasts many of the proven features of our other 9mm drums, the PMAG D-50 GL9 – PCC and the PMAG D-50 EV9™. Providing 50-round capacity, the unique drum configuration keeps the height of the magazine manageable, allowing for easier storage. For easy loading, it includes a ratcheting loading lever that removes tension from the internal spring. To keep track of your available firepower, we’ve included a rounds-remaining rear window, a high-visibility follower and a capacity indication roller. Easily disassembled for cleaning and featuring an innovative bolt hold-open feature, the D-50 GL9 reliably locks the bolt back on empty when used with firearms designed to lock back on GLOCK pattern magazine followers. It is recommended that you install a new OEM magazine release on Gen 1-3 GLOCK handguns to support the extra weight of the magazine. Gen 4 GLOCK handguns will require an aftermarket metal magazine release. Installation of a new recoil spring assembly to ensure reliable feeding is strongly recommended. Individual variations between firearms may result in an extra power recoil spring being required.Use of the D-50 GL9 in pistol caliber carbines (PCC) is not recommended, because the increased length of the feed tower will be partially unsupported in most pistol caliber magazine wells. This unsupported condition may cause premature wear on the feed tower magazine catch, and (in firearms which deviate from factory magazine well specifications) may result in improper round presentation and failures to feed.
