Magpul Industries is now shipping the PMAG 40 GEN M3. Production of the PMAG 40 was delayed while GEN M3 technology was perfected.the USMC M27 IAR. The PMAG 40 has the same compatibility as the 30-round GEN M3, which means it will work well with the USMC M27 IAR. The PMAG 40 provides 10 more rounds of capacity before requiring a reload—which could be a lifesaving difference. The PMAG 40 is just 2 1/8″ longer than the 30-round version, and just as reliable, durable as the PMAG 30.
The optimized magazine spring can handle feeding at cyclic rates over 1150 rounds per minute, so the extra 10 rounds of safety comes with the ability to more than keep up with platforms such as the M249 SAW and the M27 IAR.
The PMAG 40 Gen 3s are available now from select retailers and distributors, with full production underway.
Also, to beat the July 1st deadline for ownership in Colorado, a small portion of the first batch of PMAG 40s will be available from the Boulder Airlift Program for direct sale to CO residents, regardless of previous orders. Limit 2 per customer for direct sales. CO Residents order Here: Boulder Airlift
