Magpul recently announced that they had started shipping the Gen M3 40 Round PMAGs to their distributors. Not everyone will want these but I think they are going to be a huge hit, especially with the 3 Gun crowd. If you watch any 3 Gun competitions you’ll see guys quite often running PMAGs with a $28 Nordic Components PMAG Extension Kit which increases the capacity to 48 rounds. The new PMAG Gen M3 40 round mag will only retail for just $19.95. If you really want to kick it up a notch you could always use a mag coupler with the new 40 round mags to have 80 rounds ready to go. I’m sure I’ll have to give a couple of these a try. Visit Magpul.com for more information. Keep an eye out at your favorite retailers for availability very soon.
The next-generation PMAG 40 GEN M3 is a 40-round 5.56×45 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.
