Magpul is named after its first product, the MagPul, an accessory used to pull magazines out of their pouches. Magpul was founded in 1999 by U.S. Marine Corps Veteran Richard Fitzpatrick.

The company grew as it invented and produced more firearms accessories including stocks, handgrips, bipods, sights, and the famous M-LOK system and the PMAG line of polymer rifle magazines.

Originally based in Erie, Colorado, Magpul made good on their promise to move out of Colorado if the state passed a magazine ban. The state passed the ban and Magpul moved their production, distribution, and shipping operations to Cheyenne, Wyoming and their headquarters to Texas.


Many of us have attempted to cut out foam for a weapons case for a perfect fit for our long guns with varying results, usually bad. Using a razor blade or plucking out foam cubes is tedious and once you’re done you have to live with the results.

No more of that. Magpul has a brand-new way to set up your weapons case.

The DAKA R44 Case is ready to protect your rifle. Magpul started with a foam base insert, which uses a system of two and three block spacers that can be placed vertically or horizontally depending on how your weapon is placed in the case.

Your weapon is secured by two latches equipped with padlock holes, and the DAKA Case meets all TSA/FAA requirements for weapons transportation.

Magpul will be introducing two different sized cases very soon.


The DAKA GRID insert system is designed to fit the Pelican Vault V730 and V800 hard case. So, owners of these cases can retrofit the system into cases they already own.

Magpul will be adding other options to the DAKA system in the future.

Anyone looking for a system to protect their valuable firearms should take a close look at the Magpul DAKA GRID case or inserts for Pelican Cases.

That’s all for now, folks! Please keep sending in your questions, tips, and article ideas. And as always – “Let’s Be Careful Out There.”
