So Travis Haley leaves MagPul… and now Chris Costa is jumping ship?
MagPul is in serious trouble now because when you have to two biggest rock stars in the industry that makes your products look cool and sets them apart from everything else, and then you don’t have those guys anymore. What do you have? You have a company that makes makes AR accessories… just like a whole bunch of other companies… CMMG, Mako, Tango Down… too many to list. So what is going to set them apart now?
And what guys are going to have the balls to stand up and take Costa’s place in MagPul’s training? I know one guy. That’s it. And he’s running his own company. I know there are going to be a couple huge egos that are going to want to try to step up for this… I have two names written down that I’m not going to say. Huge egos, decent trainers, sure. But they are not the rock stars that Travis and Chris are and I seriously doubt they are going to be able to pull off what MagPul has done in the past.
I think MagPul is on its way out like a lot of other good companies. Because it’s not the product that makes the company – it’s the people. And MagPul isn’t going to find people like Travis and Chris. They were the faces of MagPul.
