Magpul Industries Corporation is an American designer and manufacturer of polymer and composite high-tech firearms accessories. The corporate headquarters is based in Austin, Texas in the United States. Magpul Industries takes its name from its first product, an accessory for US and NATO armed forces STANAG magazines that aided users in pulling the magazine out of its pouch, hence "Magpul".The company manufactures a variety of products from firearms accessories and slings to electronics cases based largely on in-house design as well as providing design consultation and firearms training services. The company has also engaged in political advocacy in recent years, on behalf of the firearm industry, in its former home state of Colorado. Magpul announced its intention to leave Colorado in 2013 when new gun control laws caused many of its products to become illegal in the state in which they were manufactured; it has relocated its factories to Wyoming and its offices to Texas.
