As promised we managed to get our hands on a brand new windowless Magpul PMAG 30 Gen 3. There are lots of detailed photos and the plan is to put the full size photos in the Tactical Photos page ASAP.
The floor plate no longer accepts the dust cover and the magazine has four boxes with square indentations for marking your magazines.
The Floor plate of the new Gen 3 PMAG (Right) is slightly thinner which should allow for the magazine to fit vehicle weapon locks unlike its predecessor (left).
The Magpul PMAG 30 Gen 3 (Right) feels a lot better in the hand. (Maybe its just me but it felt more substantial)
The feed lips on the new Magpul PMAG 30 Gen 3 (Lower) are slightly narrower than previous versions (I compared at least six magazines and found this to be the case, however none were brand new).
You can get all your Magpul PMAGS from our sister store MTG Tactical
I would like to thank the individual who provided the magazine from his personal collection!

The marking matrix is an interesting idea. Any chance of doing a side by side/top profile of the floorplates since this seems to be the biggest change?
