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.

About Sand Color:
Sand isn't just a fancy new FDE tone, though. It's an entirely new polymer, developed to specifically accommodate color additives without sacrificing strength. This has traditionally been an issue when manufacturing polymers, and the Sand material solves it, while simultaneously reducing the mag's IR signature.
The new Sand color retains the same chemical resistance, stability, endurance and reliability as the original GEN M3 PMAG, yet with significant increases in feed lip strength. Evidently, this new material is so strong, it surprised even Magpul's engineers. And those guys know a thing or two about polymers.
There's another important reason the sand shade was chosen: It readily accepts water-based Rit dyes, for endless color pattern possibilities and combinations. Consumers have been Rit dyeing Magpul products for years, and this lighter-shade mag will make it even easier to adapt magazines to a specific environment.
