(previous PMag has the over travel stop in the front of the mag which cannot be used due to the longer HK416 magwell). -The M3 magazine catch area is reinforced. -The M3 magazine has a new slimmer floorplate to aid in pouch compatibility. -The M3 has slightly increased rib height for better handling under stress. -The M3 has grip ribs on front and rear spines for increased positive handling under stress. -The M3 has a recessed paint pen matrix for individual marking of magazines that is consistent and will not become illegible due to use and cleaning. -The M3 Maglevel features new window material which is more chemical resistant and has a new non glare finish.

Got it... I'm still learning here.. haha.. You guys have NO idea how pissed I am that I waited this long to buy my first AR-15. I hope it's not my last... Let me know if you're going to dump those pmags off cheap. ;-) lol

Anyone on here use Double Star lowers? I am hearing it sounds like the tolerances aren't all that great...?
