Magpul PTS - PMAG 120 Round Midcap Magazine

Recommended Posts

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.

Magpul PMAG Comparison

 

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.

Magpul PMAG PTS on: Magpul M4, CA SCAR, TM M4 S-System

 

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.

What do the trades say? Any closeups of them?

 

Click the last link. high res links to all pics there.

 

Any idea if they plan to release the short type and one with mag level window showing simulated rounds inside?

 

Not yet AK. I'll be bringing these up on Saturday, so you can run around with them if you want ;) Will post more when I find out for sure though.

I'm wondering more about the other side, which there are no pictures of on the internet or so it seems.

 

EDIT: the real steel guns that these don't fit in AFAIK are 416, F2000, and FNC (some models only). Those should all be tried by someone.

Orca, thanks for the review bro, was interested to hear more about these magazines.

 

Given Magpul PTS's past outsourcing to G&P when i heard that these were 120 rounders i got worried.

If you get a chance can you confirm usage in ICS?

 

Sorry Burke, I and AEX are ICS-less. You may want to fire off an email request to Airsoft GI. They should have both in stock.

this is probably a stupid question as you have a CA SCAR but can you confirm usage in the VFC SCAR?

 

Not stupid, and just confirmed. Yes on the VFC SCAR-L.

Just to footnote this all, the PTS PMAGs will be tested thouroughly this weekend. I've only fitted and fed as quickly as I could in the few hours I've had free since bringing them home. Will post performance data at the end of the weekend.

I thought the RS ranger plates couldn't fit the airsoft PMAGs, or am I wrong?

Well my Real PMAG Ranger Plates fit on the PTS PMAGs...

 

Performance wise, we had an event today on Camp Pendleton. I had a handful of PTS PMAGs I let a few peopel use. Multiple M4's of various bodies and internals had not fit or feeding problems with the PTS PMAGs. All SCAR's had no issues with the PMAGs. 1 older CA M15 did have some feeding issues though, but it was having feedng issues with other mags as well.

Any idea as to whether these fit in a King Arms m4?

 

Also, I realize they haven't been out but a few months, but does anyone have any experience with how they have held up feeding wise over a few months of use? Springs seem to be pretty reliable?

Mags are reliable, holding up just great.

 

Also, these mags do NOT work in my VFC scar. Inconsistent feeding. Ive tested all six and they wont feed.

My Dboys magwell didnt like the Pmag at all. It was a supertight fit.

 

I took out some sandingpaper, and gave it a rub, aswell as some siliconespray, and now it works nice.
