The next-generation PMAG 30 GEN M3 is a 30-round/ blocked to 5 asper Canadian law
5.56x45 NATO (.223 Remington) polymer magazine for AR15/M4 compatible weapons that features transparent windows to allow rapid visual identificationof approximate number of rounds remaining. Along with expanded feature setand compatibility, the GEN M3 Window incorporates new material technologyand manufacturing processes for enhanced strength, durability, and reliabilityto 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 ofadditional 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 Window 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 thebottom panel of the body to allow easy marking by the end user foridentification. The new, easy to disassemble flared floorplate aids extractionand handling of the magazine while providing improved drop protection, but isslightly slimmer than before for better compatibility with tight double andtriple magazine pouches. An included pop-off Impact/Dust Cover canoptionally be used to minimize debris intrusion and protect against potential damage to the top cartridge during storage and transit.
Durable dual-side transparent windows allow for quick determination ofapproximate 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 affectingthe durability or reliability of the magazine.
