I recently read an independent test in a tactical magazine that compared 5 different polymer magazines. Though several other brands scored high, the Magpul PMAG was still the reigning champ.  From dusty battlegrounds to the mean streets, to home defense and beyond, Magpul has produced a great magazine that is enjoyed by many.


Until recently Magpul has focused most of the PMAG magazines on the AR rifle market.  The most popular mag being for the AR-15, but also offering magazines for the  AR-10 in .308 caliber, and two options for the British SA80 and the H&K G36.

For the first time, however, Magpul has entered the increasingly popular AK-47 market with the new PMAG 30 AK MOE.  The new PMAG 30 for the AK-47 brings all the experience, expertise, and technical magic that has made the Magpul PMags so popular in the AR market to the Kalashnikov world.  Specifically designed to work in the AK-47, AKM, AKS, and similarly patterned rifles chambered for the 7.62×39, the AK MOE is a 30-round lightweight polymer magazine that offers a removable base plate, constant curve, and the highly regarded and dependable Magpul follower.


Magpul PMAG AR-15 Magazine

Magpul PMAG

Magpul is known for producing some of the most talked about tactical gear in modern production.  Whether it is the FMG-9 machine pistol or theBushmaster ACR, Magpul always seems to be involved in the latest, coolest tactical gear.  The Magpul PMAG is no exception.

The PMAG is Magpul’s polymer AR-15 magazine that has proven to be one of the more popular AR magazines on the market.

The PMAG comes in two basic models: standard and MagLevel.  The MagLevel features a clear plastic window on the side of the magazine and a painted magazine spring that allows you to get an approximate round count with the weapon still in the rifle.  The standard PMAG comes in 20 or 30 round versions, while the MagLevel PMAG is 30 round only.

The PMAG has waffle-style texturing on the body of the magazine to enhance your grip.  The body of the mag feels solid, but not too thick.
