Product Description

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.

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.

In addition, 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.

(5 out of 5) Great Price, Quick Delivery
by from Edmond, OK on

We purchased six extra magazines when we purchased our two S&W Sport II AR15 packages. The magazines were added to the case pouches of the package bought and shipped to our FFL. No problems at the range. All fed nicely. They have dust covers that are not shown in the picture. We keep our mags loaded and covers on. Overall, great deal.

This magazine functions as intended. No Defects what-so-ever. Prompt delivery as advertised.

(4 out of 5) Competition
by from Reno, Nevada on

I've used just about every magazine out there, and these perform very well, but I don't like them while competing in 3 gun shoots. My reasoning is simple, when I hit eject, I want the mag to drop out of the rifle. Every once in a while, they get hung up when empty.
