After a decade in development, the TMAG is the newest addition to Magpul’s stable of STANAG-compatible magazines. A translucent magazine, the TMAG allows shooters to visibly verify various ammunition types, along with round count.
Magpul’s new TMAG line of translucent magazines are made with an Olive Drab Translucent material. TMAGs are the first translucent magazines that meets the company’s GEN M3 standards, which has been the bar for Magpul magazines for many years.
Externally, ribbed front and rear straps provide a textured surface to securely grip the TMAG during magazine changes, and the sides are left smooth to ensure visibility. The TMAG uses similar internal geometry as the Magpul PMAG. The four-way, anti-tilt follower is paired with a USGI-spec, stainless-steel spring with a painted coil, which maintains the “gas gauge” capability from the “Window” magazine product line. As for the magazine body, it is clearly marked to show approximate round counts when inserted in a magazine well, and the paint-pen dot matrix allows for markings to be applied by shooters. The TMAG’s low-profile floor plate also provides compatibility with the full line of Magpul floor-plate accessories.
According to Magpul, the new TMAG 30 AR/M4 GEN M3 30-round translucent magazine, the first release in the TMAG lineup, meets the company’s “standards for the AR-15 or other STANAG-compatible platform, all without the expense—and lower dependability—found elsewhere. Furthermore, it is the lead product in a new line of translucent magazines made with an Olive Drab Translucent (ODT) material, and it’s the first translucent magazine that meets our GEN M3 standards.”
The TMAG is also the only see-through magazine that passes the Department of Defense Test Operation Procedure for full drops, as well as other dust and chemical reliability tests.
The Magpul TMAG 30 AR/M4 GEN M3 30-round translucent magazine will be available in stores and online in spring 2024. MSRP is $24.95. Go to magpul.com.
