Magpul Gen M3 PMAG Test/Review







Finished up the test video for the Magpul Gen M3 PMAG where we (me and my work buddy who conveniently has a SCAR 16 that I could use but that range wouldn't let us film ) used these mags in 5 ARs and the SCAR 16. Did a drop test with a fully loaded mag on concrete and ran some crappy ammo through them with 0 issues what-so-ever to report.

All in all it seems Magpul has another winner on their hands. If you like PMAGs but want a little more versitility in what guns you can run them in they're a good choice. Of course, the old (now called PMAG MOE) PMAGs are still great as well and now they're priced lower which never hurts.

Here's the test footage & review:

Am I wrong to think there is only one choice in magazines for AR/M4? Thanks for the time you took to put this together - good review.

Below $15 dollars---PMAG all the way (Gen2 or M3)
Above that, there are a few mags as good (Lancer is great) but I don't think there are any better than the PMAG; at least not in my experience.
