    i was playing around with a lower i have laying around and a gen 3 20rd pmag. it seems like the shelf on the back of the gen 3 pmag wont let the mag fully seat and allow the mag release to lock into place.


    gen 2 30 and 20rd fit fine but this 20 wont fully seat into place. any idea if it could be something im doing?


    kinda blows to have a useless mag

    What brand of lower? NFA as in New Frontier or as in a SBR lower? Supposedly the gen 3 Pmags would not seat in the first run of Noveske gen 2 lowers. You could file around the overtravel stop on the mag; better than filing the lower. Obviously the lower was not made to mil-spec, which is not nessisarily a problem. I have 2 Gen 2 Noveske chainsaw lowers that do take the new pmags, but are not mil-spec.

    What KnekBeard said. The gen3 Pmags work fine in mil-spec lowers, and don't fit in some lowers made to different shapes or dimensions. You can file the tab on the mag down if that's the sticking point.

    New frontier armory. Yeah my plan is just to file down the tab and see if it works. I was more of wondering if it was a common issue
