Magpul PMAG 30 GEN3 - $21 each?

Post by tcpip95 » Sat Dec 01, 2018 11:53 pm

Gun Mag Warehouse has a 10-pack for $21 each ($223 w/tax & shipping).

From what I understand the GEN3 is a very good magazine (earlier version not so much). Can anybody comment on this, and is this a good price?

I’m not up to date on their AK mag prices, but walking any S. Florida Gun Show, it’s real easy to find genuine metal surplus mags from Eastern Bloc countries for $12- $13 each. I prefer them, unless you need extra American parts for 922 content. GARY.

Thanks. I had not touched my AK in a couple of years. Family came to town over Thanksgiving and we went to the range. The night before I noticed I had 50+ mags for my AR, but only 6 for my AK.

All my AR mags are Magpul and they are flawless. Figured I'd look at their AK mags. I've read that they got it right with the GEN 3 mags.

I don't care for Magpul's AK mags. Just get yourself surplus Combloc steel, they're cheap and they will last longer than you. $21 dollars for a less than stellar plastic mag that's really only good for light use at the range = your wallet taking it in the ass.
