We’re on the very precipice of the NRAAM and for today’s preview we bring you the shipping news from Magpul.
Engineered to combine the unmatched performance of the PMAG 30 AR/M4 GEN M3 Window and the desired color for the U.S. Army’s Small Arms Weapons Neutral signature reduction program. The Medium Coyote Tan (MCT) PMAG carries forward all of the prior GEN M3 innovations to include our next-generation impact and crush resistant polymer, aggressive front and rear texture, an easily removable slim floor plate, a paint pen dot matrix for marking and identification, and a dust/impact cover as well as the Maglevel window to indicate capacity at a glance. The MCT mag utilizes a newly developed proprietary molding process to allow for desired colors while maintaining the absolute strength and performance of the black and sand materials previously available.In addition, the MCT mag carries forward the existing GEN M3 5.56 feed geometry to ensure M855A1 feeds with greater reliability than other magazines and eliminates premature wear in the M4. M16, and M27 IAR. Now adopted as the official magazine of the United States Marine Corps.
The MCT mags are in the wild! But wait there’s more!
