Gen 3 Pmag / Hk416
Gen 3 Pmag / Hk416
I don't think it's going to be released until 11/1, so right now Magpul is probably the one one that knows for sure.I have 1 question to add. Does anyone know if the M3 PMag will accept Blackout ammo? I've heard mixed reviews saying the 30 rd does and the 20 rd doesn't. I realize this isn't really an HK topic, so my apologies. Just curious.
Does anyone know if the M3 Pmag passes the cold weather drop tests?

The standard for feed lip drop testing is 5', and these tests were from 6'. The new PMAG has tested significantly stronger in all rough handling tests, including cold weather, hot weather, full weapon drop, etc., and is boringly reliable in endurance and compatibility testing.
The endurance testing takes a single mag to 6,000 rounds, and we do that in various platforms.
I am surrounded by PMAGs on a daily basis, so I kind of take them for granted, but these have me rather impressed.
Side impact video will be up today.
I know our Bn Gunner would not authorize PMAG usage for the infantry Marines on our last OEF deployment because of all the PMAG feedlips cracking under hard use. YMMV
...My question is how would the Gen2 mags compare in this drop test. As far as I knew, all versions of the Pmag performed better in tests like these when compared to the GI mag. Is the polymer really that much stronger?
gen'2s had a tendency to split...
It took one day for the resident anti-HK416 troll did so on another forum under another name.Anyone wanna bet how long it is until the portion where the 416 w/USGI mag fails to feed shows up on some sight as proof of how the HK416 sucks and doesn't live up to the hype?
Well under than number. I've had some hair-line cracks on the feed lips. The first one we noticed was during our mandated rifle qual. requires a mandatory reload (which most do a speed load...I know it's stupid; not my call), and we noticed one officer's mag was spitting out 2 rounds when it hit the deck rather than the usual 1.I'm just wondering what the service life of the Gen 2 pmags are? Is it under 12K in your experience?
