Magpul Pmag GEN M3 30-Round Magazine is a 30-round 5.56x45 NATO (.223 Remington) AR15, M16, M4 compatible magazine. This is the brand new Pmag made of new material.
This next-generation PMAG 30 GEN M3 is a 30-round 5.56x45 NATO (.223
Remington) polymer magazine for AR15, M4, M16 compatible weapons that features transparent windows to allow rapid visual identification of approximate number of rounds remaining. Along with an expanded feature set and compatibility, the GEN M3 incorporates new
material technology and manufacturing processes for enhanced strength,
durability, and reliability to exceed rigorous military performance
Modified internal and external geometry also permits operation with a wide range of non Colt-spec platforms such as the HK416 and MR556A1, M27 IAR, SA-80, FN,
SCAR, MK 16/16S, and others. A redesigned bolt catch notch in the rear
of the magazine provides increased bolt catch clearance, while an
over-travel stop on the spine helps ensure the magazine will not
over-insert on compatible weapons.
Similar to the MOE PMAG, the GEN M3 features a long-life stainless steel
spring, four-way anti-tilt follower and constant-curve internal
geometry for reliable feeding, and simple tool-less disassembly to ease
cleaning. In addition, an included pop-off Impact/Dust Cover can
optionally be used to minimize debris intrusion and protect against
potential damage during storage and transit. Low profile ribs and new
aggressive front and rear texture gives positive control of the GEN M3
in all environments, and a paint pen dot matrix has been added to the
bottom panel of the body to allow easy marking by the end user for
identification. The new, easy to disassemble flared floorplate aids
extraction and handling of the magazine while providing improved drop
protection, but is slightly slimmer than before for better compatibility
with tight double and triple magazine pouches.
Durable dual-side transparent windows allow for quick determination of approximate number of rounds remaining in the magazine. Utilizing a high visibility indicator coil on the spring and numerical markers on the magazine body, the MagLevel™ system provides positive verification without affecting the durability or reliability of the magazine.
