Shipping in February, 2017 is the new Medium Coyote Tan color to Magpul’s popular GEN M3 PMAG. Previously only offered in Black, they’ve came up with a way to make really strong Tan mags. The GEN M3 PMAG also recently completed an exhaustive magazine evaluation by the US Army and it did very, very well.
Some will question why this new color. The answer lies with the US Army which requires a “Small Arms Weapons Neutral” band of colors. Unfortunately, FDE, although popular, isn’t in that band of colors. Magpul is just giving the customer what they want, and we benefit from it as well. Look for a new NSN for the MAG556-MCT soon.
