2013 Magpul Goodies

Magpul tossed out a bunch of new stuff for shot, there's three things that caught my eye.  One is a product I really like, and the other two are(ok, that one's part of a set, but it's the half that I want) ones that show that Magpul does listen to customer wants.

ETA: Can anybody identify the handguard/lower rail on that gun?  I could use something just like that on one of my AKs...

Emerson-Multitasker EDC Tool

I love my Multitasker tools, and Emerson Knives are things forged out of pure awesome...  Needless to say, this will be replacing my Leatherman Skelitool in my pocket when I get home.
