Magpul PMAG 30rd W/ Window GEN M3
The next-generation PMAG 30 Window GEN M3 is a 30-round 5.56x45 NATO (.223
Remington) polymer magazine for AR15/M4 compatible weapons that features
transparent windows to allow rapid visual identification of approximate number
of rounds remaining. Along with expanded feature set and compatibility, the GEN
M3 Window incorporates new material technology and manufacturing processes for
enhanced strength, durability, and reliability to exceed rigorous military
Modified internal and external geometry also
permits operation with a wide range of non Colt®-spec platforms such as the HK®
416 and MR556A1, M27 IAR, British 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 Window 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.
Battle-hardened by over 5
years of combat experience, the PMAG evolution is marked by a long list of
improvements, but here are some of the highlights of the new GEN M3 that are
changes from the current design:
-Stronger in all tests over the current
PMAG (feedlip impact, spine strength, side impact, hot/cold durability, etc.)
-Geometry and new low-drag follower design changes to increase reliability
in extreme adverse conditions, including dusty environments.
compatible with HK 416, FN SCAR, SA 80, et.al., with new bolt catch geometry and
an over-insertion stop on the spine of the magazine for full functionality with
-Now drop-free compatible with magazine wells on the tighter
side of acceptable tolerance, and has a reinforced mag catch area for greater
durability and compatibility with various mag catch tolerances.
floorplate for increased pouch compatibility comes standard, along with improved
-Improved texture on the front and rear for more positive
handling under stress.
-Recessed paint pen dot matrix for magazine marking
that will not abrade off under handling or cleaning.
Please note that
the PMAG Ranger will NOT work with the new GEN M3. It will be getting its own
Ranger design and we’ll provide more info as it becomes available. Basically,
GEN M3 accessories/components will only work with GEN M3 magazines, including
its Impact/Dust Cover.
