Heat and Pressure Test – PMAG GEN M3/USGI Test Video Installment #4

This is to simulate minor blast effects without a solid object impact. Once again, it’s a USGI tan follower magazine and a Magpul GEN M3 PMAG, and the test consists of firing a standard 5.56mm blank into the side of each magazine from muzzle contact distance.

Crush Test – PMAG GEN M3/USGI Test Video Installment #3

This is a 9,000lb Mercedes Unimog driving over both a USGI tan follower magazine and a Magpul GEN M3 PMAG, in a paved parking lot.

As a spoiler, all the welds in the USGI busted loose. To be as thorough as possible, despite the USGI being completely split, we carefully held the USGI magazine together to load it, and once we got it in the mag well, surprisingly, it worked. GEN M3, however, just got a scuff on the floorplate. Still 100%. No cracks, no chips, works like a champ. We even took this same GEN M3 PMAG out and ran it over about 8 more times, trying to break it, to no avail.

Feedlip Drop Test – PMAG GEN M3/USGI Test Video Installment #1

This is a video from our feed lip drop testing. With a sample size of one each in this video, it is still an “unscientific” demonstration, but we didn’t think you’d want to see hours of magazines falling. This test is very typical of the overall results. This is the loaded magazine room temperature feed lip drop on concrete, from 6 feet, PMAG 30 GEN M3 vs USGI, tan follower, followed by full auto function fire. All drops were from a fixture to control impact angle and release. Test firearm is an HK 416.

Side Impact Test – PMAG GEN M3/USGI Test Video Installment #2

Time for another test video, this time from our side impact testing. There is no “official” test for side impact, so we used a dummy rifle dropped from one foot above the magazines. We can go significantly higher on a side impact test with a PMAG and especially a GEN M3, but we left it at the apples to apples one foot for the comparison in this video. While you may not think that dropping a rifle flash hider first onto a magazine is a likely occurrence, we felt it was the most easily relatable demonstration to indicate resistance to impacts such as going prone on rocky ground, falling, etc.
