I just received some tan pmags from AIM Surplus (http://www.aimsurplus.com/acatalog/Magpul_Polymer_30rd_.223_AR15_M16_PMAG_Magazines.html) and was confused on what generation followers they have. Are they pre-generation 1?

Here (http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=3&f=124&t=353553&page=1) is the link I was using for comparison.

Did I just make a poor buy considering GenIII followers just came out?

The date code on the body of the mag is 1/08.

I have an older mag from 4/07 and the follower looks similar but it has 5.56 stamped on it.

Pmags have their own follower so you're worrying over nothing.

Thanks jerkface. I guess my powers of observation failed me miserably. I now can clearly see that Gen I/II/III followers would in no way fit inside a Pmag.

here's a question:

What the heck is the difference between Magpul's Gen II and Gen III followers for USGI mags?

Thanks,

Mike

I think the major change is the material.

Building a new mold also allowed us to use a new material that we really like. It is much more slippery than the Gen 2 material and is used as the follower material in guns like the FNP90. The material costs the same as the old material but mold substantially quicker and cleaner. This means lower cost to manufacture. As a result the price for Magpul Followers will drop from $6.95 to $5.95 per 3pack.
