According to a press release yesterday, Magpul is running their machines around the clock to keep up with PMAG demand. But rather than simply resting on their laurels, they announced that not only are they about to release their new 20-round magazine into the wild, but that there will also be a 10-round flavor and a windowed M3 PMAG coming soon, too . . .
These are a little later than anticipated due to production optimization of our standard capacity magazines, but we now have added capacity to produce the GEN M3 20rd magazine as well as have all the standard mags running ‘round the clock. And so, without further fanfare, we give you the PMAG 20 GEN M3. The PMAG 20 AR/M4 GEN M3 includes all of the GEN M3 improvements, including constant curve geometry, which is a change from our previous straight 20rd PMAG.
We are also taking this opportunity to announce the PMAG 10 GEN M3, although this reduced capacity magazine will not be ready for release until early February, as we focus our current manufacturing capabilities on the standard capacity magazines.
Also, as promised, the PMAG 30 GEN M3 WINDOW is starting production, and we should be shipping before the first of the year.
Judging by the timeline on the 10-round magazine, this might be Magpul’s way of hedging their bets against a new assault weapons ban, tooling up ahead of time. Or it could just be them coming up with something new.
Even I have to admit, not every scenario requires me to load up the Surefire 60-round mag to take care of business. Sometimes 10 rounds is all you need. And when you do, Magpul has you covered.
