MagPod is designed to turn your PMAG into a Monopod. It slides right on to the floor plate and comes to you from the guys who developed the Multitasker tool.

Battle Ready PMAG

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

STAT International has been offered the exclusive distribution rights to the Battle Ready PMAG (BRP). It is a modified PMAG with a stippling process. Stippling is a heat treatment texture given to plastic/polymer which in this case, will enhance the shooter’s grip on the magazine. GPI Custom Gunworks developed the process used on these PMAGs which can consistently treat 60 per hour.

As you can see, the BRP is made from a non-window 30 round PMAG. New BRPs can be purchased for $20.00 or you can send yours in to be treated for $5.00 per magazine plus shipping. EMAGs are next.

FastMag and PMAG in Transformers 3 – Updated

Saturday, July 31st, 2010

We asked for it and we got it. After we reported about the Maxpedition Kodiak Gearslinger in “Inception” we received numerous reports about the FastMag and PMAG being seen on one of the “Transformer 3” stars as it was being filmed in Chicago. This photo, from the Chicago Tribune shows that Amanda Roter, 17, of Highland Park, is happy to pose with “Transformers 3” actor Josh Duhamel during a break in filming Pioneer Court off Michigan Avenue in Chicago.

An intrepid reader sent us these additional photos from the Chicago shoot.

Yes, those are BAE HAPS on the helmets and Blackhawk HPFU.

Marines and the PMAG

Holy Schnookies!  A Marine Using a PMAG.  How Can This Be? - Photo Lance Corporal Tommy Bellegarde USMC

Last fall we published a story on why Marines don’t have the PMAG but it’s about time that we update it. Two models of PMAGs actually do have National Stock Numbers (PMAG 30 Black Window: 1005-01-576-5164 and PMAG 30 Black Non-Window: 1005-01-576-5159). What’s more, the Marine Corps is the only authorized user of these restricted NSNs and has requisitioned them from the Defense Logistics Agency by the thousands, over and over. In fact, there is a procurement of 10,000 PMAGs on the DLA Internet Bid Board System (DIBBS) right now. Not only have we seen documentation attesting to this fact but we have also dug up a few photos from the Department of Defense’s own imagery server as further proof. Despite assertions to the contrary, Marines are using PMAGs, and to great effect.

Plenty of Army troops are using PMAGs as well, whether issued by the unit or privately purchased. Thus far the Army has fielded 600,000 of a planned 7.7 Million of the new tan follower aluminum magazines and some Soldiers are using the PMAG as an alternative. COL Tamilio, Program Manager for Soldier Weapons recently stated that his office would be publishing a list of approved commercial magazines for use by Soldiers but there is no word on what is expected to be on that list.

We use PMAGs here at SSD. When there was a run on magazines right around the election of 2008, we spent our money on PMAGs. They are affordable and reliable for our use. However, magazines are expendable and should be inspected and maintained regularly and replaced when needed.

Magpul’s New MagLevel PMAG 30

Saturday, June 6th, 2009

Magpul Industries has made another incremental improvement to the popular PMAG magazine. Information on all of the upgrades are included below on the graphic provided by Magpul but two items really stand out.

The Maglevel window has been slightly enlarged to improve visibility of the fluorescent orange Round Indicator and marking for 5, 15, and 25 have been added to the PMAG’s body to help take the guess work out of how many round are actually in the magazine.

The other improvement that will affect lots of shooters is that the side ribs have been reengineered in order to improve compatibility with non-mil-spec magwells as well as weapons such as the SCAR. This change will also improve the fit in some magazine pouches allowing for a smoother draw.
