Is Magpul and Pmag the same?

Magpul has been the biggest name in AR-15 magazines since the original PMAG 30 was released in 2007. The PMAG is at least as reliable as the best metal magazines, and it is even more durable. They simply brought a winning solution to market through superior design and materials selection.

What is the difference between gen2 and gen3 Magpul PMAGs?

The Gen 2 baseplate is a good bit wider than the Gen 3 P-MAGs. This slimmer baseplate of the Gen 3 magazines make it easier to fit mags in a double magazine pouch. The wider Gen 2 baseplate makes the magazine easier to grab in my opinion, especially from a belt mag pouch.

Which Magpul PMAG is best?

It was designed for users who reside in areas with magazine capacity restrictions but desire a standard 30-round magazine form.

We manufacture our own proprietary limiters which we insert into the magazine to limit capacity to 10 rounds maximum. The limiters are chemical and heat resistant and will never break or fail. In addition to the limiter we also seal the bottom of the magazine closed “permanently” with a industrial grade polymer adhesive (no rivets or blind pins).

All pmags are great BUT it sucks that some states make you block them. What’s nice though, Cal Legal Mags doesn’t do what other sellers do. They offer a fair price rather than charging you double or even triple the retail price for blocked – state compliant mags, again like most of their competition does.
