When it comes to AR-15 magazines, you want one that will work flawlessly every time no matter what conditions you find yourself in. The Magpul 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. The M3 magazines have modified internal and external geometry which also permits operation with a wide range of non Colt-spec platforms such as the HK 416 and MR556A1, M27 IAR, British SA-80, FN SCAR MK 16/16S, and others. 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.

"Bought this mag for my DPMS Sportical which came with a crap mag. Works how it should. Durable. Feels sturdy in your hand. Overall good buy. I won't look back and neither should you."

"The Gen 3 is a great mag for the price & comes with the dust cover. One thing I noticed is that you cannot attach the dust cover to the bottom of the mag like the previous models. Not sure why they did away with that (minus one bullet). The bottom of the mag is a little slimmer than the gen 2."

"That was one of the best features. Why would they get rid of it? Maybe only a feature on the S&W M&P version of the PMAGs. Still the best mag out there."

"I just received my 4 magazines and I was surprised to find that they included the dust covers. These feel rugged and fit great in my Bushmaster Carbon 15! This was a great deal. Thanks CTD!!"

"The 20 of these I purchased worked flawlessly in my Bushmaster Carbon-15s, as opposed to the Thermold mags they are replacing (way too many FTFs). The M3 comes with the dust cover, like the earlier PMAGs all did. Cheap for them to include, & makes them much more valuable to me. I'll pay the extra buck or two for the dust cover. But, it seems like that should be the only option they have, like the good ol' days."

"I was temped, and pursued, alternate brands thinking that Magpul is just an overpriced average quality product. I was wrong- as far this magazine is concerned (I haven't tried any of their other products). They fit well into my Diamondback DB15B and release from the magwell without any hiccups. The price is right, the quality is great, in my opinion."

"I love these mags and CTD was fast!. I asked for more for Christmas and hopefully it's a case of 'em. They'd only be better if they loaded themselves, i'll take care of the unloading."

"As stated above, buy these. These are real Magpul mags and the best price I have seen. The Gen 3 have a small notch in the back at the follower that eliminates the problem of previous generations of mags where the bolt would rub this area causing FTF. I have shot 100's of rounds through these and they work flawlessly."

"Good magazine. feels sturdy. The only thing that may be misleading is that it says .223/5.56 x 45, which I thought that it was a 45 rnd clip. It was a 30rnd clip after loading it, which is what I bought"

"Have to give a four rating because I'm disappointed that the dust covers don't attach to the bottom of the mag, when not in use. I love Magpul as a company. I respect the way they responded to the passage of anti gun laws, and will continue to support them"
