The next-generation PMAG 30 GEN M3 is a 30-round 5.56x45 NATO (.223 Remington) polymer magazine for AR15/M4 compatible weapons. Along with 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 specifications. While the GEN M3 is optimized for Colt-spec AR15/M4 platforms, modified internal and external geometry also permits operation with a range of additional weapons such as the HK® 416/MR556A1/M27 IAR, British SA-80, FN® SCAR™ MK 16/16S, and others.
In addition, 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 window system provides positive verification without affecting the durability or reliability of the magazine.
Similar to the MOE PMAG, the GEN M3 features a long-life USGI-spec stainless steel spring, four-way anti-tilt follower and constant-curve internal geometry for reliable feeding, and simple tool-less disassembly to ease cleaning.
The GEN M3 PMAG features 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. 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. An included pop-off Impact/Dust Cover can optionally be used to minimize debris intrusion and protect against potential damage to the top cartridge during storage and transit.
The 10/30 blocked PMAG has been permanently modified by Ace's Armory for our customers who live in states with magazine capacity restrictions. The PMAG is new from Magpul Industries and will be shipped in its original wrapper. We have modified the original, 30-round magazine utilizing our proprietary magazine blocker, which stops the follower at the precise location required to limit the capacity of the magazine to 10-rounds. After inserting the magazine blocker, the magazine base plate or Ranger Plate (if added to purchase) is permanently affixed to the magazine with industrial grade adhesive. Each magazine is inspected during our quality control process prior to shipping to ensure compliance with state regulations.
NOTE: **ALL BLOCKED MAGS MAY TAKE UP TO 1 WEEK TO SHIP**
- Ranger Plate – The Magpul Ranger Plate is a rubber pull tab that replaces the base plate of the magazine to aid in pulling inverted magazines from pouches for tactical applications. We install the Ranger Plate on the magazine prior to shipment. Note, the ranger plate can be removed and replaced with a standard base plate on our riveted magazines.
