Magpul PTS - PMAG 120 Round Midcap Magazine


The Magpul PTS - PMAG is a 120 round midcap magazine, modeled after Magpul's 30 round PMAG for Armalite style rifles.


Magpul PTS - PMAG Bottom Plate

The PMAG has an allen screw as well as a spring loaded button, which keeps the floor plate secure. I originally thought the allen screw also kept the magazine internals in place, but fortunately it doesn't which accommodates the use of Real Steel PMAG Ranger Plates.


Magpul PTS - PMAG Upper

There is a pin, just below the feeder mechanism. I believe that this pin is what is securing the magazines internals, but will confirm later (I cannot find my armorers punch of that pin size right now)

You'll notice, while the PTS PMAGs resemble the Real Steel PMAGs, side by side comparison shows differences in dimension, design and material used.

The build of the PTS PMAG is solid and as mentioned above, the PTS PMAGs use the real PMAG Ranger Plates. They are only held on by the spring loaded button when you replace the stock floor plate You do not need to use the allen screw.

So far, I've test fitted and fired the PTS PMAGs on all my AEG's that take STANAG type magazines and a few in shop at AEX. Feeding has been flawless for far, but will have more detailed test results after this weekend.

I've seen posts of people bitching about the $32.00 price. To put it in perspective, if a person were to get a Real Steel PMAG for $17.00 avg street price. Add a $22.00 midcap with removable internals. Plus the time it would take to try and modify the Real PMAG enough to accept the midcap internals. You would be at $39.00 just for parts alone.

Following are reference pics.
