You realize the first day of fall was actually September 22, right? Its been fall for about 2 weeks.

Magpul has stated many times that they do not release the dates in advance for when product will hit the shelves

Magpul had no problem releasing an estimated release date at SHOT. I think we are all just hoping for a little update.

I know, personally, I need to grab 120 new magazines and I have been dragging my feet hoping the M3s would be out soon.

Pretty sure MAGPUL has been knocking back the release date since the spring. I plan on buying 10 when they come out but I'm not holding my breath. If it takes another year to get them right that's fine by me.

I'm looking forward to it. I just hope the rumors of them only coming in black are bullshit.

I got no problem with any of my Gen 2's.. But why keep buying the old when you can have the new and not to mention the good sale prices that happen on the old stuff when the new stuff comes out.

Sounds good, looking to pick up some extra PMags asap. Hopefully can get them in OD when they release. Assuming the current ranger base plates will work on the gen 3's?

From what I understand, their reinforced better, over insertion fixed, and will fit a few other rifles like SCAR and ACR, better material and a few other improvements like feed lips.

I love freedom, cause a chained dog ain't happy.

-The M3 design is stronger in all tests over the current PMag (feedlip impact, spine strength, side impact, cold/hot weather. etc.).
-The M3 has geometry changes to increase reliability in extreme and adverse conditions.
-The M3 has new low drag follower design for increased reliability in dust environments.
-The M3 is now drop free compatible with magazine wells on the tight end of the tolerance.
-The M3 is now fully compatible with HK416, SA80A2 (Magwell length) and FNSCAR (Bolt Catch) weapon systems.
-New over travel stop allows the M3 mag to be used in mixed HK416/M4 environments without potential over travel in the M4 weapon. (previous PMag has the over travel stop in the front of the mag which cannot be used due to the longer HK416 magwell).
-The M3 magazine catch area is reinforced.
-The M3 magazine has a new slimmer floorplate to aid in pouch compatibility.
-The M3 has slightly increased rib height for better handling under stress.
-The M3 has grip ribs on front and rear spines for increased positive handling under stress.
-The M3 has a recessed paint pen matrix for individual marking of magazines that is consistent and will not become illegible due to use and cleaning.
-The M3 Maglevel features new window material which is more chemical resistant and has a new non glare finish.

Believe it or not, I own no PMAGs. *Gasp*

I have a lot of Okays/NHMTG and 3 Troy Battle Mags, so I am holding out for the M3 to start my PMAG additions


I remember seeing a flat floor plate for the PMAG on the Magpul website, but now I can't find it. Will the M3s come with this optional floor plate? That was the reason I bought Troy mags over the PMAGs

The Gen3 mags sound desirable. I'll have to get some. Is there going to be 40 round version too?

Its been sort of hinted that the GEN3 is the reason the 40rd magazines hasn't been released yet. No sense in putting a lot of money into molds that were going to be changed within a year.
